    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because although it is challenging, it really helps develop the English language and understand more academic vocabulary. After taking this course, I noticed a lot of overlap on the ACT and on the ASVAB tests and taking this course helped me a lot on those tests. I understood some of the vocabulary that without taking the course, I would have no idea what the words meant. This course was challenging and if you are not interested in literature and language, I would not recommend this course. However, if you are a bookworm and interested in challenging yourself and getting college credits, this class is the right class for you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were writing our timed essays. We did them quite often throughout both semesters and although I dreaded them, it helped me prepare a lot for the AP test. We also analyzed movies which was really interesting. We read a lot of books so for all you bookworms, you would love this class. We learned a lot about new vocabulary words, how to write different types of essays (rhetorical, argumentative, and supportive), and how to analyze various pieces of work/literature to find the meaning behind the work. Taking this class also helps a lot in getting you prepared for college and it makes English 111 a lot easier. It was a lot of work and was difficult, but it was fun to explore different aspects of literature and language and developed a new respect for them both.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pace yourself. There was a lot of work and it was constant. Whether it was writing essays, doing analysis/annotating different pieces of literature/articles, or reading. The course was assignment heavy but if you pace yourself and don't procrastinate and put everything off, you will help yourself out a lot. Also, when writing your timed essays, although they are challenging, pay attention to punctuation and grammar. Don't add in a lot of unnecessary wording to make your essay longer; get to the point. Don't skip the readings either, it makes the quizzes very hard if you haven't read what you were supposed to! If you stay on top of your assignments and ask for help and what you can do better on, you will have no problem getting an A in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was not only interesting but if you kept up all your work it also wasn't to hard. I love reading and if reading and writing is an interest you have, I highly recommend you pursue this class. You can also earn college credit if you pass the test at the end of the course. This class was a challenge however, it is defiantly worth it in the end.

    Course highlights:

    This course was so helpful to what lies ahead in the future. I am currently enrolled in a college level English class as a senior in high school. I can confidentially say that the AP language class has helped me tremendously get to where I am now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you stay on top of all your work and assignments, you shouldn't have to much homework. Procrastination is not an option for this course, you will fall behind and it will effect your grade significantly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is taught really well and the writing assignments are personate to what you're learning. Many of the writing assignments have room for creativity. The class really helps prepare for the ACT and SAT

    Course highlights:

    Through this class, my writing skills as well as my understanding of grammar and punctuation have greatly increased. The highlights of this class were the writing assignments where we could add humor or satire into our writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and stay up on you're assignments. Don't wait until the night before an assignment's due to type your essay. Although I know you can probably do it in one night, it's not worth the stress, and your grade on that assignment may suffer, trust me.
