    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend APEL. It's a really fun course, and McMillan is the nicest person ever. We get to read some really cool pieces, including books, articles, short stories, and more. She helps us plan for the AP exam and we have a lot of fun working on personal assignments and in-class work.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were the end of year assignments, and the Socratic seminars. The Socratic seminars were huge class-size debates where we could calmly and respectively talk out your opinions with our classmates. The end of year assignments were always personal essays that brought the class closer and helped people find their "author's voice".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the homework, mark up your worksheets, make weird connections, and please, please don't ever cheat on your homework or tests or classwork. It will only end in the class losing privileges and nobody will be happy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course due to the wide variety of knowledge it brings. Ms. McMillan is an excellent teacher and role model. Not only did I learn important grammar and writing lessons, but also life lessons that continue to affect my life. She not only taught traditional material, but also common mistakes that are seen everyday, which was very useful. Her lessons were also taught logically and were very interactive most of the time. This was a class I truly looked forward to going to, and those are far and few between.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a variety of different essays, such as argumentative, style analysis and synthesis. I also learned lots of allusions used in everyday life and simple grammar mistakes every morning. Another important addition to this class was learning public speaking when preforming speeches. My favorite part of this class was doing lots of fun, creative writing while still preparing for the AP Exam.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest to not procrastinate and ask questions when you do not understand. The problem most students have with this class is that they do not understand a concept but they do not think it is important enough to ask. The concept continues to come up and students struggle because they did not have it clarified in the beginning. Staying on top of assignments is also important because they build on each other, and it is easy to become overwhelmed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because as McMillan says often, It is a essentially a class on how to argue with your parents properly.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course so far is the readings we do in class. They are almost always interesting to decipher and understand whether or not we enjoy reading them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students considering this course is do your summer assignments on time and always keep up on homework.
