    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it teaches you how to dive deeper into novels and how to think about all of the choices that the author makes. Without this class, I would have never seen past superficial details in novels and never understood true meaning behind the choices that authors make.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were socratic seminars. I learned to speak my mind, and the discussions allowed me to hear other people's perspectives on the topic at hand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're considering it, definitely take it. I wasn't sure I wanted to take another AP English class, but I am so glad I did. In order to succeed, you definitely need to do the reading and pay attention in class. But the books are interesting and we talk about them enough so you'll understand what is happening.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was incredibly helpful towards my skills as not only a writer but as a reader, student, and person. The class mainly consists of writing preparatory AP essays, reading and analyzing well-respected classical American literature, and diving further into the realm of the English language. Grammar and spelling tests are scattered throughout the course to further aid your transition from a decent English speaker to a more decorous and educated student who is able to accentuate their thoughts in a manner that is more formal and well-thought out.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course, I learned how to more effectively provide myself with the right tools to become a better student. Through reading and analyzing the classical literature we discussed in class, I learned a great deal about insight and forethought towards history and the way the world works. Through reading Ella Minnow Pea, I explored the dangers of censorship. Through reading The Grapes of Wrath, I more thoroughly understood the severity of the American Great Depression. The weekly essay writing really expanded my writing capabilities and employed me to find new and innovative ways to convey my feelings in a manner that is appropriate and insightful. I am proud of the content I learned in AP English Language and Composition, and I'm sure you will be as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I'd give to any prospective student for this course would be not to slack. The course is rigorous, and will require you to fully envelop yourself in it. Read the materials you are required to read and read them in a manner that you can fully understand and analyze on a greater scale. Furthermore, the grammar and spelling tests are actually extremely beneficial to future learning. The tools given to you by these seemingly "simple" or "silly" tasks will provide you with an exemplary advantage against your peers in the future. A college will choose the essay that is better written. So take the course seriously, and allow yourself to learn as much from it as you possibly can.
