    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Finney is an awesome teacher and really invests her time in teaching her students how to analyze rhetoric and how to use their time wisely. She takes great care in grading her students' essays in order to give them an accurate score that would resemble their score on their AP test.

    Course highlights:

    Class discussions were very productive in our class and the environment made everyone feel safe. Because of this, I loved how deep in analysis we would get while discussing the text. I felt that I benefited greatly from the repetition of text analysis and annotation individually and as a class or small group. I learned how to really look deeper into the meaning of the text and how identifying the speaker, occasion, audience, purpose, subject, and tone (SOAPSTone) can aid the reader in understanding the true meaning of the text.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the practice tests that your teacher gives you!!! Also, I can not emphasize the importance of pacing yourself enough. This course can be challenging but take the challenge! In the end you will come out a much better reader and writer.

    Course Overview:

    It taught me how to look for sources that support my argument and create a fully developed essay.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how important evidence is in an argument and how to develop a complete point of view on a topic. I also learned how to find my voice when writing a paper.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students taking this course should be prepared to write a lot of essays and read a lot of material. Evidence is very important in an argumentative essay and in order to find good evidence, you have to read many sources.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Finney is a passionate teacher who knows what she is talking about. She uses a nice mix of traditional textbook resources and technology to keep the class interactive. Some of the works we read are a bit uninteresting because they are non-fiction but the class is overall an enjoyable, informative experience.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about literary devices, which is very important when you read any work. Being able to identify the literary devices used (such as alliteration, metaphor, et cetera) is important to interpreting works and understanding the underlying meaning of the author. I also learned how to analyze works, which is just as important for English classes as it is for history or government courses; knowing how to analyze written work is an important step to understanding and creating your own ideas.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading; I know sometimes it seems like a lot, but the reading is required for a reason. Also, practice the literary terms. Mrs. Finney will give you quizzes and they are designed to identify who actually understands the terms. Being able to differentiate between the literary devices is key.
