Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class if you took AP Language and Composition or had good grades in you last year language arts class. This class is quite easy if you are great in writing and reading in general. I had a bit of a hard time because of the writing and reading comprehension assignments that we would have once a month because she weighed them heavily compared to homework or little assignments. Also, there are many presentations and poster that are usually easier grades (if you read the novels she tells you to).
The highlight were the presentations and the posters. This was the time where groups would put all the knowledge they learned from the novel and make a cool poster about the society of a country that the novel took place in or how the characters represented a symbols or motifs in the novel. I learned how to make my presentations more interesting, informative, and creative. It also got rid of some of my nerves since we presented quite often. With the group presentations and the poster which we would work with other students, I talked to people I would usually talk to and had normal conversations with them. one of my groups hung out at my house to prepare for our first presentation.

Advice for students:
Read the novels that she assigns for the month. Do not just read the summaries online like most or just read the first half. When it comes to doing posters and presentation, it makes sure that you are not having to research it on your phone or asking your group. The teacher can see when you get the information online so if you actually read, she will see that you have new and insightful information and will grade you higher.
