    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Teaches the basics of writing in three different, useful styles. It requires students to read and understand texts, then learn to respond to them in several different types of essays. Writing powerful pieces is a skill that extends far past the classroom, as our class found when we wrote persuasive letters to our loved ones to resolve disputes. Even if you don't expect to enter a humanities major in the future, the course is worth taking since the material is so applicable to daily life.

    Course highlights:

    My personal favorite part was reading the Autobiography of Malcolm X. It was an engaging, compelling work that brought multi-faceted discussions to the class. I learned to think for myself in this class and argue for my beliefs, as the teacher would no longer hold my hand through essays and Socratic seminars as they have in lower level English classes.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate in the class to take the most away from it. Read the books, speak during Socratic seminars, ask questions. Be sure to listen to the teacher's feedback on essay and keep it in mind on the next essay to improve your writing, which is the biggest component on the AP exam.

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open minded and confident attitude about the subject and make sure you pay attention. With that, the class will be easygoing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has given me insight on how reading classic literature strengthens your writing. As well as how you are your own teacher and the instructor is there to help you along the way to answer any questions you may have.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight would have to be when we started discussing free speech on college campuses and whether it should be limited. It was not an easy discussion because there were many point of views on this subject matter. We had a couple of socratic seminars on this subject and my own view point on the matter changed. At the end we had to write an synthesis essay from a reader response we received. That essay challenged me technically and personally because the topic of free speech didn't come up in my daily life. I had to critically think and doing so I learned that I'm a full believer of having speech not limited on college campuses. But overall I learned you need to have an open mind when you discuss controversial topics because it's easy to tune out someones beliefs and ideas.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Thoroughly listen to your classmates views and don't be judgmental but consider their view points and challenge their ideas. Read the books that were provided and read them thoroughly, they may not seem like interesting books but they may surprise you.
