Requires Lots of Research
This class was tough.
The course is vigorous, but meant for those that wish to be inspired. Anybody willing to learn and excited for their future opportunities in relations to English can find a plethora of instances in this class that teaches students how to broaden their span of attention to a multitude of ideas that will eventually help them through their lifetime.
There is a sort of awe when it comes to understanding whether or not one has benefitted from the program. A girl who has graduated the class with 100% versus a boy who may have received an 85% can not be compared accurately- because English is not specifically just written work and grades- it is an idea. One should not be quick to assume that the girl will be successful in her lifetime more so than the male, because it is dependent only on the individual. It is a combination of passion and creativity that drives us to be different. I learned how I shouldn't be competing with my fellow classmates by how much book work I do, but how I translate the information to something that forces the people to listen- and not just listen- but stir to action.

Advice for students:
Being sociable leads to easier days of sitting in the classroom, but the friends you have in high school will more than likely disappear once college comes around. I learned that it isn't about how many people you discuss the lessons with, how in depth your own communication with your fellow students or teacher was, that determines whether or not you avidly benefited from the program, but how you as an individual received the information. One's own boredom over the assignments given is the result of a lack of inspiration on the student's part. Broaden your mind- and be different. Think about how bored your own teachers could be, looking at the same piece year after year of just the bare minimum. If you strive to make the world listen to you, you must first think of how you can make your own class listen first.
