    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend to take this course because I got the opportunity to read numerous essay's by amazing author's and discuss them in class and share opinions about the different topics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were when we would get in small groups to discuss topics and really express how we feel and learn about others opinions and see how they resemble or differ from yours. I learned that our opinions can change in an instant even if we were 100% sure a minute before of what our outlook on the topic was.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this class would be to stay after school for extra help because it will help you when you take your AP test and to form small study groups with people that care as much as you do about the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The English Language is all around us, it is in our laws and books and news. What AP English Language allows you to do, is actually understand the meaning behind the words used in our everyday life. It's not enough to passively read a news article or a book, you need to be able to actively read and understand the underlying meaning in able to expand your mindset, your growth, and understanding of the world. Some students will inevitably say it's a stupid, useless class; however, understand that this class will subtly expand your ability to read and analyze if you put in the effort.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the essays every student was required to write. Students were expected to write a full, strong, and understandable essay within the class time allotted to you. It taught me to think on the spot and write efficiently; skills that will help you on AP, SAT, and ACT exams with the essay prompts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to walk away from this class at the end of the year with full understanding of the material and a feeling of "I learned something", you must put in effort for the class. The class will only give you as much as the effort you're willing to put into the class. Inevitably, most classes tend to be like this. The amount you learn will be directly dependent on how much effort and attention you give to the class. If you plan on taking the AP exam or any exams with an essay portion, this is the class you need to take. It will teach you to analyze, literary devices such as parallelism etc., and to write a good essay. However, as I said before, you need to put in the effort to see results.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP English Language was such an interesting class because we let our minds jump into a pool of rhetoric and imagination. Anything came into play as long as one had evidence to back it up.

    Course highlights:

    The main thing I took away from the taking this course was searching for rhetorical strategies in passages written by outstanding writers. I was amazed because the pieces of art produced by these timeless authors entailed so much thought.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! This course just immerses you into the world of literature and the language of these passages.
