    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Teacher is a highlight of this course. Great books have been read and amazing classroom experiences and assignments were included into the literature and composition aspects.

    Course highlights:

    Great assistance with vocab and grammar aspects of the AP exam. Learned plenty of writing tips and tricks to help students in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write often, read often, get head-starts on projects. Deadlines come quick, especially for big projects with heavy weighting

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    To be completely honest, I have not found this class very rewarding since the start of the semester. Although this class is of AP rigor, I have not found myself learning anything new in order to do well on the AP Exam. Instead of practicing multiple choice questions and analyzing passages (frequently), my class and I have been found reading multiple novels, with an occasional essay to end the unit.

    Course highlights:

    Since the start of first semester, I have enjoyed getting to know Shakespeare's language a bit clearer than I every have before. Now that I have read multiple Shakespeare plays (Hamlet and The Tempest), I have learned how to analyze/understand what he is saying, as long as I do not rush through the material.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students entering this course, I would recommend being ready for the high workload & high rigor material that this class offers. In order to succeed in this class, I recommend coming to class with some future work done, so that the high workload does not overburden you.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I am very neutral towards the course mainly due to the quality of instruction and the relevance of the course if a student has already taken AP Language and Composition. Due to the fact that the teacher is a bit into himself, I believe that a normal English class might be more worth one's time if AP Language was taken prior. Otherwise, it is a rough class, but it's available if you need the AP credit.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course include analyzing literature in general (poems, plays, etc.) and improving overall composition skills in preparation for college. With the two combined, a unique learning experience unlike any other is created upon supplementary information provided by the works analyzed in class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend reading prior to taking this course in order to better prepare yourself for reading passages that are higher in reading level. Additionally, I would recommend budgeting much of your free time on weekends in order to write practice essays and complete practice multiple choice exams, mainly due to the fact that you do not get much time in class to write to an AP prompt.
