    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I am really enjoy Mr. Shull's teaching. I think he makes it enjoyable while still teaching us effectively. I like how we are able to get the assignment and manage our time to get the given assignment done.

    Course highlights:

    This course has made me a better writer and reader. We have done numerous timed writings, which I think have greatly improved my ability as a writer overall. We have read all kinds of books ranging from The Great Gatsby to King Henry IV. Reading different, and challenging, works has helped me become a better reader, expanded my vocabulary, and exposed me to more sophisticated ways to write. Of any English course, English 12 has taught me the most and helped me advance my writing abilities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this course you have to be ready to listen, read, and write. You do not have to do any of the latter excessively, but you will be doing a fair amount. If you do not like writing and reading you will not enjoy this class. Another bit of advice I can offer is to use your time wisely. When you are assigned a paper do your best to get a good jump on it. Do some pre-writing or some brainstorming. Do a first and second draft because if you take advantage of your time you will only boost your own grade.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's fairly easy and the teacher is relatively young so she understands the class and is very chill

    Course highlights:

    Reading Lord of the Flies was the best. Don't watch the movie. The book is better. Watching the movie Frankenstein was AWESOME!!!!! It was hilarious with sly jokes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    PAY ATTENTION!!! Do your homework, actually study (you may learn a thing or two)

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it was interesting and entertaining. We read The Great Gatsby, Heart of Darkness, and many Shakespeare plays. We even watched some clips from the movie The Great Gatsby, which has now become one of my favorite movies.

    Course highlights:

    This class has taught be to apply the themes found in literature to my everyday life. This includes theses such as greed, lust, deceit, and love.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be willing to read old English literature. This type of writing may often times seem pointless and hard to understand, however, pieces such as Shakespeare's Henry IV are applicable to our lives in 2016. It discusses greed, reputation, redemption, and the relationship between a father and his son.
