    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is extremely enlightening and exposes you to wonderful works of text that you may have never even heard of before. That being said, the books you will read in this class are thoughtfully crafted and are not only interesting, but also eye-opening. There are many discussions of these texts in class that help you stay engaged and caught up with what is happening in the story. I found that the discussions also brought light to symbols, issues, or parallels in the texts that I had not picked up on. While the workload in the class is definitely time consuming, it is worth it as the novels read are very enriching.

    Course highlights:

    Personal thoughts were by far the best parts of this class. They provided you with the chance to talk about your inner thoughts and issues in your life or in the world that you may not get to talk about often. It also gives you a chance to really open up to your classmates and vice versa. You and your classmates learn information about each other that you may have never known, and I felt as if personal thoughts brought my class closer together. They're also a lot of fun to write, as the prompts are pretty loose and can be interpreted in many different ways.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and take notes - don't rely on Sparknotes, although it does give a good summary of the reading. Quizzes are frequently given, so if you take ample notes on your reading, you'll feel more prepared to discuss the reading the next day and you'll feel more confident in the reading. Try to participate in each discussion at least two or three times. The discussions are your opportunity to give your insight and personal thoughts on the reading, and you're allowed to disagree with people and vice versa. Participating will not only give you further insight into the reading, but it will also make you look better in your teacher's eyes!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because in the beginning of the year, we are taught how to write a perfect college essay. This is something every high school senior planning to attend college has to do, so it is very useful to have background knowledge about how to write a college essay. Also, this course focuses on many types of writing skills, from personal writing to expository writing. Even though the class is fast paced since it is the level of a college class, it really sets you up for how college courses are going to be like.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being taught how to write a college essay. For the first weeks of this course, we worked vigorously on writing and analyzing superior college essays. It was helpful to see how many different ways a successful college essay can be written, and also to be given tips as to how to write a successful essay. Also, the fast paced nature of the class along with the homework load helped prepare me for how college was going to be like.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading. The reading checks are very in depth and if you do not focus on what you are reading, it will be hard for you to follow along in the class discussions as well. Also, talk to your teacher. If you are struggling on writing a particular essay or reading a book, your teacher will give you different strategies to help you succeed. Every student is a different type of learner, so don't be afraid to reach out and get the help you need. Dedication pays off.
