    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course to Juniors in high school that want to not only improve their writing but also their reading skills. I have improved tremendously over the course of a year using strategic and critical thinking I was able to achieve many goals i never thought I could. I sought help from my teacher and discussed the progression of my writing from the first to the last week of school. I was able to comprehend the passages even though they became tougher along the way. I was able to dictate the author's purpose from the audience's perspective and that is a key piece in order to succeed in this college course.

    Course highlights:

    As I stated previously, I excelled in the ways of reading, writing, and time management. By taking this course I was able to read a prompt, understand the key ideas and author's purpose, and finally, write my thinking all in the short amount of time of 45 minutes. By using the strategies taught in class I was able to do all of this and more! Some prompts that I received a higher score on I was able to have enough time to go back and read my writing. I learned many things in this course that not only can benefit me in English class but also take these skills and apply them to the real world. For this, I am eternally grateful for the lessons in and out of class this course has taught me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The things you need to succeed in AP Language and Composition is an open mind. The prompts that you will receive will NOT be what you think or expect whatever. These are paid professionals to write and if you don't understand their purpose, it's okay, trust me. Even after discussing it with my peers and teacher I still don't fully get why the author can't just simply state what his/her purpose is. All the tips I can give you is to manage your time wisely because those 45 minute class periods feel so fast when answering a prompt. One last tip, there is no way to study other than practice writing about different topics and stay educated on events that happen daily. You never know when you can tie in an outside source. Hope you enjoy AP Language and Composition as much as I did.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    First things first, the teacher is great. Unfortunately, the school system doesn't seem to understand that a good teacher can make all the difference in the quality of the education a student receives. This teacher knows how to run a class properly. This class is also great for vocab expansion and essay writing. It forces you to think more openly and academically by requiring you to keep up with current events and prompting you to start independent research. Those are great skills not only for college, but just living in general.

    Course highlights:

    Great teacher, valuable skill sets, expanded vocabulary, fun topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's an easy course, but it's still an AP course. Work hard and work smart. Do your homework and don't fall behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an English class that every student should take during their high school career. Many people are scared away by the fact that it's an AP Class (I know I originally was), but it honestly prepares you so much for other writing exams in the future, such as on the ACT or even for scholarship mini essays! I feel like my writing has grown immensely from this class.

    Course highlights:

    During this course I learned how to write 3 different types of essays- rhetorical analysis, argument, and synthesis. We also had to take very difficult multiple choice exams, which were basically the reading portions on the ACT but with higher level reading.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is one where you don't have much homework at all except for the occasional outside-of-class essay, or a short 10 vocabulary word assignment each week. My advice is to stay on top of the work that is given, because it's very easy in this class to procrastinate and then end up with a 10 page paper due the next day. I made sure to also do my vocabulary each Sunday right when it was posted so I wouldn't forget and it would be out of the way!
