    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very rigorous and challenging course that will teach a student to write great essays and think critically. It is a class that will do a great job of preparing you for the college and the rest of your future. However, like I said before, it is extremely difficult. You must be prepared and up for the challenge going into the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to effectively write different types of essays, such as a rhetorical analysis or a persuasive argument. I also understand the different literary devices and rhetorical moves that authors use to make their works effective. I am able to dissect the most famous works in history to fully understand their content and the author's purpose.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not doze off in class! There are classes where you can refuse to pay attention while the teacher talks and later teach the information to yourself, but this is definetely not one of them. You should also be prepared for surprise In Class Writings, where you will be expected to read and fully understand a piece of writing and then be able to effectively write about it in a five paragraph essay, usually a rhetorical analysis, on random days throughout the year. You should also spends some time the summer before going into this class learning different rhetorical devices and literary terms from the internet and studying how to use and identify them. This will be extremely useful going into this class.
