    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of only two classes I've ever taken that made me feel like I was being taught things I would actually need to know in the real world outside of school.

    Course highlights:

    In the first semester we learned about money. Although it is an English class, the books we focused on emphasized the wage gaps, how much living on your own costs, and in general what really matters when you move out. My class did a money project. We were given a packet and we were to fill out a monthly budget if we lived on minimum wage for food, gas, rent, insurance etc. We actually had to call apartment offices and ask about monthly rates, sizes of apartments, and the area it was in. Doing this project made most of us realize how expensive it really is to live on your own, which is something we should all be learning in school.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is an AP course, so the curriculum is fast paced and I would only recommend it if you enjoy English. Most of the coursework isn't reading, but more of analysis of the readings. We only read about three books total and the rest are short passages and excerpts for analysis and annotations. There is a lot of annotating to do. This course really requires you to think and understand what you're reading.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it prepares students for the AP test and for the rigors of college. Without the skills I learned in this class, I would not be able to complete the work required for college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was reading and analyzing Invisible Man by Ralph Emerson. This was a challenging book to read, but with the skills Ii learned from Mrs. Moore's English class, I learned to interpret and relate the story to modern day situations

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to learn the content Mrs. Moore is teaching and apply it to the course work. Given the time requirements for reading, writing, and completing assignments, it is essential to use these skills in order to succeed in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because Mr. Moore is an excellent teacher who explains novels in depth and in a way that is easily understood.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read novels like a college professor and how to write a successful college application essay.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you must put in the effort to actually read the novels and think about the deeper meaning of the work as a whole.
