    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is very traditional and loves to stick to the book. This gets exhausting since all the other classes are more lively and unique. She is very crude with the assignments that she gives to students and maintains a strict grade policy.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight from this course was the material itself. The information we learned about the literature that we analyzed was very intriguing. The only negative comment would be the excessive homework assignments and lackluster lessons.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your book. Never underestimate the amount of work given to you. Have good time management. Do not copy assignments for they are essential to your understanding and the class discussions. There is no wrong answer, because it is literature, anything can be inferred from the text. The most important thing is understanding other people's view points on certain topics.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend the class to those who are committed to taking the AP test because this class is a preparatory course for the exam.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to carefully analyze a text and discuss the deeper or hidden meanings behind the author’s message.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you must read the required books. Do not merely skim through the book or search up the summary online. Do not be afraid to ask your teacher questions.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because it broadened my horizons on literature. The course challenged me to read novels from different eras and of different topics that were outside my comfort zone.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course were the in-class discussions of the novels that we read. In these discussions, we were challenged to think critically about different aspects of the writing, ranging from the author's writing style to the motives behind characters' actions. Through these discussions, my ability to communicate vastly improved.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First I would always read the novels thoroughly, and then do research on the book. If there was something that the book referred to, then the first thing you should do is look up that reference. You should also always pay attention to class discussions because whatever people say can help you improve your essays.
