    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend taking AP Literature and Language. The techniques I learned in these classes have made me a better student not just in the subjects but over all as well.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was the professor. Mrs. Barnette is by far the greatest I have ever had. She really pushes you farther than you ever thought you could go. I never thought that I would make a passing score on the AP exam but I did and earned college credit at the same time. The class is not easy but it is worth it. My writing and analysis skills have grown exponentially. You will see the world in a different light after finishing this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study all the time. Do all of the reading or work she gives you. It all has a purpose, she doesnt just give you filler work. It may seem way to difficult and at one point you will want to drop the class. But I promise you if you stick with it it will pay off in the end.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this only to those who are up for the challenge. It's not an easy A by far, with essays every week and various books to read, and extra work sprinkled in. Anyone just going in thinking it'll be fine and dandy will be met with the harsh truth, but I think it the person has a good work ethic and enjoys reading and writing, they should join.

    Course highlights:

    To me, the highlights were reading all the different books. We read books like the Scarlet Letter, Hick Finn, Poisonwood Bible, etc. We annotate all of the books we read, that way we can point of any figurative language, syntax, other rhetorical devices,and highlighting important things. Of course, there was an essay with each book, but she made sure we were well prepared and knew the book well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although our teacher makes sure to help us when it's due, some people are still struggling. I would say to focus on multiple choose and timed writes if you sturggoe with them, and if you don't, then work on annotations and picking up those rhetorical devices. They'll come in handy on most essays and assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class will not only help you to gain college credit, but also to explore the world of the literature we read and use it in our daily life and current events.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to thoroughly analyze the material I read, and apply it to other aspects of life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come with an open mind, and keep up on current events.
