    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Her teaching is excellent, she does not worry about the structure of the essay, but what is in it and if you answered the question. When she does a lecture it is more about her talking and giving personal stories for you to understand what she is looking for and how you can connect it to your own life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course were the lectures and how personal she got into it, I learned that in an essay it is more about what you put it in it rather than how long it is.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate because she does give a lot of work and no matter how cool she is, she also gets very annoyed when we turn in late work.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. LeBlanc is the reason I love English so much. She never shuts down an idea and is always there to listen. She believes there is never a wrong answer and her words inspire me to push myself everyday to think. I thought that no one in the world understood me until I was in her class analyzing texts and talking with everyone one on one in discussions.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most important things I learned in the class was that I can have a voice despite what I was told before and that it's okay to think. I believe the two best times I had in the class were when we had to do speeches and when we discussed Lord of the Flies. Speeches, although frightening, were nice. Some people got really deep and talked about sad but impact experiences they've had. I did and it helped us all connect. Discussions were awesome and I loved it because it gave me an opportunity to talk like I was never able to before.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Think. Never back down from a challenge to think. Please don't just go because you get credit. This class will push your mind to think for the best. You can grow here and find yourself which is really great since you'll probably be a senior next year. Don't be afraid to talk to LeBlanc about ideas. She likes it when people think and get into stuff. Also, do all your work! One assignment can change your grade from a C to a B.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it makes you realize that literature is a mere reflection of a certain era. You can learn much more about history through literature than just history books. The course requires a heavy load of homework, but in the end it pays off as you become a faster writer and your analytical skills will definitely improve.

    Course highlights:

    The course includes essays and seminars every week which help you gain oratory skills, analytical skills, and greater writing skills. The course also includes vocabulary every week which definitely opens up new words to add to your vocabulary.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not do the work for the grades or points because then you will misunderstand the purpose of the course. The best advice is to write in your own style and make sure to reflect your voice in your writing. Do not be scared to analyze and deeply express your thoughts because that is what makes up a good essay.
