    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course and teacher, I had her my freshmen year of high school for Honors English 1 and her weekly outside reading reports and vocabulary test helped me get through the next 2 years I had with out her because I was always prepared and learned how to manage my time wisely. My senior year of high school I took Mrs. Thompson's AP English class and it was hard. It was so hard to remember an entire list of over 100 vocabulary words and long meanings in different types of literature but in the long run after completing the course, I have found my self more educated not only in my writing skill but also in my comprehension. After long nights of working on my Shakespeare (senior) project, I know that I am prepared for my intense college courses that I will be taking this fall. This course also helped me fall back in love with reading and helped me to realize what a gift any book as even if it is one I have to sit down and analyze.

    Course highlights:

    The main skill I gained throughout this year long course was writing, She taught us all every month how to improve our writing skills in time for the AP exam and those skills will help me to get through the next four years of college.I also learned several of new analyzing techniques which include over a hundred of new words that I can use to break down the author, speaker or entire works meaning as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid of something hard just because you may think you will fail because you won't. When taking this course I suggest making flashcards the exact day you get your vocabulary words and then studying them every day till the test. I would also use quizlet for creating flashcards so you do not loose them and so you can quiz yourself. My last peace of advice would be to start an assignment as soon as it is given because you don't want to fall behind and trust me you will.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course, and I feel like I learned a lot about analyzing literature and poetry.

    Course highlights:

    The Shakespeare Project was the highlight of the course. Although it was difficult, I learned a lot about Shakespeare. I now understand how to analyze his plays.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to do the work that is assigned, and to actually learn the vocabulary words. It helps a lot to prepare.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Thompson will make sure that you pass the AP test. She is a great teacher and always engages the students.

    Course highlights:

    Although there is A LOT of vocabulary it is worth it. When analyzing literature you have a list of literary devices in your brain to pick from. An endless list. I love reading because of this class and I read a book in less than a month.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. Especially with your Shakespeare project. It is not hard if you do not procrastinate.
