    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a class that will teach you how to truly analyze a work and see what strategies an author uses in order to convey a point.

    Course highlights:

    There are no real highlights of this course. It was pretty consistent the whole way through work-wise, and nothing stood out as very exciting. I did learn how to analyze rhetorical strategies and what they did for the author however.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard. If you fall behind, it's really hard to come back. Make sure you ask for help, and are ready to work diligently.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although it was a difficult class to pass, I saw my comprehension and writing skills improving rapidly. It isn't just reading a Dystopian book and writing a report on it, it's reading nonfiction and making connections to the outside world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned from that class that if you don't do the reading, you won't pass. Each passage you read makes an impact on your writing, each assignment is of your gain and never to be a time filler. AP classes are of course a representation of college classes. I learned that procrastination will definitely make you fall behind in high school and college.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Get sleep. By that I mean do the work the second you get home and power through it because staying up too late and not getting sleep will make it harder to pay attention in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you believe you excel at English, or you are a very hard worker, take AP English. It is a really hard, labor intensive course, but once you complete it, you will feel really good about yourself and your decision to take the course.

    Course highlights:

    I very much enjoyed learning how to write essays in under an 40 minutes, and all the readings. The readings made the gears in my head turn, it was so fun having more than one answer to a question.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be disciplined and know how and when to put yourself to work. You need to be at a good reading comprehension level and you need to be okay with writing a lot.
