    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is challenging and Mr. Eitelgeorge is passionate about what he teaches.

    Course highlights:

    I loved everything about this class. Mr. Eitelgeorge will always be my favorite teacher; he made my favorite subject even more enjoyable for me. I always felt challenged and unfortunately, I didn't do my best, but I learned more in that class than I did with all the other classes combined.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to face challenges. This class is worth it and truly prepares one for college. Most of my college classes aren't even as difficult as this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although rated one of the hardest classes on campus, AP Literature is actually one of my favorite classes. Taught by Mr. Fredeking, he focuses on a specific piece of literature and shows films and allows class discussions to make sure the material is completely understood and fully analyzed before moving on. He is one of few "real AP" teachers on campus, so take advantage of him while he is still teaching!

    Course highlights:

    Literature is the most general label for this class; we have several projects throughout the year that work to engage us students in general research, textual analysis and understanding of literary works. There are several units including poetry, Shakespeare, and Jane Austen, all of which are accompanied by some kind of video, song or production to help better understand the pieces.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to engage in text. Be prepared to defend your answers. Most importantly, be prepared to collaborate and share with those in your groups. Although he is seen as the "easy" teacher, he is very straightforward and will tell you how it is. Brutal honesty is his main policy.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you do the reading and participate in class discussions you have a better chance at doing well on both the class tests and the AP exam. Also in class essays were difficult but if you work n your writing style and use of vocabulary and get better at reading the material faster and efficiently you are able o expand more on your topics of discussion.

    Course highlights:

    A big highlight from the course was that every week we would have vocabulary to learn and if you did well it could boost up your grade if you didn't do well on. I also remember the stress of the first few in class essays, however, the essays got easier as the year went along.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS do the reading and take notes on what you read so you are prepared for a quiz or class discussion. The teacher is big on discussions and tries his best on treating it like a college course.
