    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This particular teacher purposely challenges each of her students with continuous yet beneficial work that mimics the rigorous coursework of university. As an AP English class, we read multiple classical pieces of literature, have engaging public class discussions, write and edit dozens of essays, and more. Her greatest priority is to challenge students, help them further develop their minds, push them to mature, pass the AP exam, and practice valuable college skills like communication. Despite how others complained of excessive work, I regret nothing as I with ease passed the AP exam. The challenges and her genuine belief in her students via her expectations make the course much more rewarding when you pass. I definitely recommend this course for students that are interested in passing the AP Lit. Exam and are serious about themselves. You have to be serious in that you tackle the rigorous course work assignments given, participate actively in discussion, and are willing to take constructive criticism. This class is far from easy, but it is not impossible. This class is for those willing to act like young adults that are interested in attending university. If you are not serious about growing up then don't do it.

    Course highlights:

    The continuous practice exams, vocabulary quizzes, powerpoint assignments, group work, essays, and class discussions accomplished were confidence-building and mind-growing. All that Ms. Salinas assigned during the course was necessary for us as students to mature and develop productive working skills. In retrospect, I find that the class environment, the numerous discussions, and constructive criticism provided were the best in helping myself mature. When you first enter the class, you are hit with the truth that you despite being a high school senior know nothing. You become humbled in realizing that you are not the perfect student because you have much more to improve on academically. While some might see that as horrible, it is not because through this experience, I managed to expand my mind. Each essay written is taken apart by the teacher and edited with genuine care, meaning that your writing from beginning to the end of the year only can improve. Not only do you become humbled and improve as a writer, your confidence is built via class discussions. Other students that are willing to take this class are the company that you debate with and discuss the significance of Holden's red hunting hat with, the surreal parallels between the dystopian society of Huxley to that of this century with and more. Your AP Lit. peers' opinions mixed with Salinas' encouragement are that which enables you to speak and form your own thoughts via public discussion. My own public speaking skills matured here and I felt very comfortable in this environment. Overall, I not only became humbled as a snotty AP student, but also unlocked bits of my writing skills and gained confidence in expressing myself publicly. While the challenges seem daunting and possibly excessive, I look back at everything with no regrets because of the genuine accomplishment I feel in finishing this course from beginning to end. I gained much experience and grew so so much.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    While you may be searching for easy methods to hack your way through this class, I can say that there is no special cheat to passing or breezing through. This is an AP class and if you enroll in it, you are an AP student are Ms. Salinas treats you as such. When she assigns a 40 page study guide, an overnight practice essay or two, you are expected to complete it. This course is not meant to be taken lightly, but is very rewarding if taught by Ms. Salinas. My only advice would be to learn to not procrastinate, be willing to accept constructive criticism, and participate when you can. If you are productive in your work, make wise use of your time, implement her suggestions in your writing, and engage in class discussions, you cannot go wrong. In retrospect, this advice actually seems silly because these are things all students should be doing anyways. I admit, I myself had difficulty in the beginning doing these things however because likely being similar to yourself, I was the type that simply wanted to do the bare minimum. In further being involved, I began to implement these advices and had lesser of a difficult time. I passed the class with essentially and A and have learned that I passed the AP Exam. If anything, just be productive with your time and be willing to struggle. You're not going to improve if you don't struggle a bit.
