    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Absolutely fantastic teacher! Mrs. Gatfield is passionate about the literature she teaches and finds a way to make even the most bland pieces fun to read.

    Course highlights:

    The highest highlight for me was reading The Scarlet Pimpernel. I don't want to give anything anyway, but it is now one of absolute favorite reads. I learned not only to read thoroughly and dissect literature, but how to use that information to write a quality essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your best to get excited about everything you read. It's hard to read classic literature with a "this is boring, why do I have to read this?" attitude. Let yourself have fun.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was offered as dual credit through my high school, Compass Honors High School, Mrs. Gatfield was amazing in helping us to write better and really push ourselves to think critically and form new thoughts and ideas without taking text and works of literature at face value.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being able to read works of literature and examine them from different perspectives. We examined events in literary works from the perspective of the author, characters, reader, and as a performer. By doing this we were able to gain more meaning from the text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assignments all the way through no matter how long they are. You may want to use a quote at a later time in a paper, but without reading all of the text, you aren't always able to find these quotes. Even if you are doing outside research to learn about the text, still read it all the way through. If you are having trouble discerning the meaning in the text, ask your peers or the teacher for help. It is better to ask than to stay in confusion.
