    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The books we studied were great and I gained an insight I haven't had before. The problem was the prolonged focus on one material. It felt as if we spent too much time on certain things we have previously learned.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked some of the books, including The Underground Man. The insight gained is very helpful for your outlook on life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do not procrastinate because the amount of busy work given is a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The AP Literature class has changed hands a number of times in the past few years, so there has not been a real set curriculum in how the class is to be run. As a part of this newest rendition of the class, I would say it was run rather well although there were still some discrepancies and kinks to figure out. I would recommend this class to future generations as it is very informative and helpful, but as of the moment, I personally feel that there was far more we could have done in the class to prepare for both the AP Literature test and the school's Capstone Project.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the books and stories that we analyzed, they were very different from each other, but expressed the different approaches of analyzation that we, as students and as individuals, need to employ in order to understand what is going on around us and how current events can affect all kinds of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make sure to keep track of due dates, even if the other session of AP Literature says a due date is different than the one you were told, it does not make a difference, each class is run independently of each other. In addition make sure that you are thorough when studying for tests because very fine details are still very important.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though reading isn't my strongest skill, I took the course because taking AP English courses help me improve my ability to write essays and my ability to analyze literature. I wanted to continue adding on to my ability to do these things by taking AP Literature.

    Course highlights:

    There are moments in class where we have discussions in which we analyze the novel, poem, or passage we are currently reading and we break it down and examine each part for literary devices, character analysis, and how each element of the story relates to the theme.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to take AP Literature even though most of the people have already taken English 2 Honors and/or AP Language and Composition. Having these people around you can help you become a better reader and writer. The class also breaks things down so that any person that enters the class can understand how to write a good, thorough thesis statement and how to efficiently analyze literature.
