    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking AP English if you're the type of person who enjoys the more in-depth analysis of each book. Though there is quite a bit of writing involved, it really does help you grow and ready yourself for future courses in college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include being able to partake in class discussion, the exploration of various styles of writing and the different ways that they could be interpreted, and being able to better understand more difficult works of literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For things like FRQs, really pay attention to every little detail in the passages that you are given. The more you find, the more you can write about and use as evidence to further your argument.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course focuses on becoming a better reader and writer. It inspires you to look at life through different eyes, it inspires you to see the world the way you would never have seen before.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course was learning how to read Shakespeare and poetry, not using Sparknotes, having daily discussions, and daily lectures.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class. If he says anything that sounds important, it probably is so make sure you write it down. When approaching a piece of literature keep in mind that everything has meaning and the author put specific things there for a reason. Don't say the first thing that comes to mind because someone else probably thought the same thing. Be different, think different and you'll do great in this class. Also don't use Sparknotes because it's not as effective as your intellect.
