    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend the course, because though it was difficult for me, I still found it beneficial to the progression of my education. The course itself is not difficult as long as you keep up with the assignments and do not fall behind, and the reading is not to be ignored. It is not a suggestion, Spark Notes will not help you. The most important thing about taking this course is to manage your time wisely, and make sure that you pace yourself among your other classes, because it is full steam ahead as soon as you walk in the door.

    Course highlights:

    In AP English, you are putting yourself in a Comp 1 class essentially. In this course you will be required to do a lot of reading as well as be able to write a plethora of timed essays. The essays are not graded easily either, he really wants you to reach the full potential of your writing and he strives for you to be successful. We read three books in class including Catcher in the Rye, The Scarlet Letter, and The Great Gatsby. You should not ignore any reading assignment because most of the time you will be asked a series of questions over the chapters that you read. For writing purposes we really focused on rhetorical strategies and synthesis writing. The synthesis writing can be slightly difficult to grasp as first, but I just think of it as a DBQ in AP World History. It is about using your sources and forming an argument about a topic and analyzing your response. Overall as long as your notes are well done and again if you balance your time well you will succeed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you are always taking notes. In my experience we had quite a few lectures that I should have taken notes for in order to be more prepared. Always make sure that you are turning in assignments on time and doing them to your full potential, if you are struggling do not be afraid to ask for help. It does not make you look stupid, it just means that you want to make sure that you do the work correctly. Most importantly, do not stress. When I took the class I stressed way too much and it exhausted me and I no longer felt the need to do my work outside of class, it is not too bad you just have to stay on track.
