    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course will make you appreciate writing in a way you wouldn't think possible. Because of the amazing teacher, you will learn how much power writing has and how it has and will continue to alter lives, change perspectives, and change the world on large and tiny scales. No matter how terrible or amazing of a writer you are to start with, you will become at least twice as better. She is the best at preparing you for the exam. My favorite thing about it is that Ms. Laroche treats writing more like an art than a science, so your writing becomes truly your own and less of just plugging words into some formula.

    Course highlights:

    There are discussions once or twice a month that are student led where you discuss whatever you want. It is great because Ms. Laroche really encourages listening to other perspectives, and it is a really fun, sometimes hilarious, but mostly inspirational experience. She makes you write a lot, but in a lot of different ways, and there are a lot of cool projects so it is never really boring. I learned not only how to write, but WHY to write.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't complain. Don't ever plagiarize. Annotate because all it really is is writing down what you're thinking and it makes writing essays so much easier. Make the most of whatever you're reading so it does't become a chore, and really really listen to what everyone has to say. You will have the best experience if you just let it happen.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Aside from Mr. Fine being an exceptional teacher, the AP Language and Composition curriculum was engaging and thought provoking. Each essay topic taught me about social, environmental, and political issues that I otherwise would have little awareness of. Furthermore, learning how to write a synthesis essay has aided my work in all of my future classes, and allows me to efficiently analyze and critique new texts I read. Anyone with an interest in literature, journalism, law, or current events will greatly benefit from this language and composition course.

    Course highlights:

    The challenge of having to write timed essays was difficult, but gratifying after a few weeks of practice. I know understand how to effectively manage time restrictions, and adequately cover important points of an argument without sacrificing the quality of the overall essay.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must maintain a strong will to improve throughout this class, because you will not produce great essays the first few times you attempt to write. However, if you do not get discouraged and continue to study the course material, you will find that the improvements are worth the initial struggle.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class prepared everyone for the Ap lang test.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about grammar. I also learned how to critically analyze.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Focus on rhetorical analysis. Reading all the books help with the class.
