    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Swarthout is a sweet lady who embraces her students and teaching with comfort and welcome so that the stress that comes from her timed writes seems negligible.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the vocab quizes we get every week or so in which we had to memorize 25 words and their definitions for a crossword or matching worksheet.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class one must always bring whatever assigned school materials everyday and prepare beforehand for any individual or group projects so that they are prepared and not sleeping at 2 in the morning.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I didn't feel very confident in her teaching but she is a very sweet lady.

    I learned a lot about prose style analysis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Self-studying before the national exam is going to be essential.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of literature and the English language; however, applicants for this class must also be willing to accept a fairly large workload.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about techniques employed in writing to express certain emotions or thoughts, as well as a plethora of information about literature in general.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in AP Lang, you must be willing to analyze literature virtually alone; trying to depend on sites such as SparkNotes will not get you far.
