    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    AP Lang is a course that contains a vast amount of writing and analysis. It is a course that varies in difficulty depending on how willing you are to dedicate your time to the work. It focuses on how to analyze particular segments of literature to understand the writers point of view, the style of their writing, and what argument that they are trying to make.

    Course highlights:

    This class really veered into a strategic analysis on the elements and components of writing. You learn a variety of rhetorical devices (simile, anecdote, epistrophe, etc) and analyze more about the reasoning and argumentation of different sources. Essentially, the course deals with the "language" more so than reading comprehension, hence the name "AP Lang". In this class, I learned how to be able to annotate different texts to really break down the true meaning behind them. I also learned how to improve my own writing by making sure that I incorporate an explicit yet rhetorical thought process.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work on time! It may seem tedious to go home and annotate a 10 million page packet or to write an essay, but your life will be so much more easier if you manage your time wisely with this class. Make sure to build a great connection with the teacher because since they will be grading your writing, you want to establish the kind of relationship where you are able to go to them and ask for help in things you may not understand.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because Dr. Pottinger teaches an excellent foundation for how to write essays and frequently reminds students of literary and rhetorical devices that can be utilized when writing. The course is not that difficult if students just do the work.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better understanding of rhetorical and literary devices and I am able to write a rhetorical precis essay under the clock. The highlights of this course would reading several different short stories throughout the school year, and increasing my book knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice that would be helpful before taking this course is that students should always start the assignments the moment she gives it out because sometimes they are due the following class when it was unspecified.
