    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This English course is recommended from me for many reasons. First, Mrs. Bragg is definitely a teacher to brag about. She's awesome! Second, in this English class you learn multiple forms of tales. For example, old english and folk tales. Lastly, English helps take you farther in life then you could possibly imagine. Imagine a life without it! Learning more about it would be merrier.

    Course highlights:

    Although I am still taking this course, I have absorbed a lot of information from it so far. We have read Beowulf, and I learned a lot about older english and how their values were different compared to ours today. We're now about to start on the Hobbit, which is always exciting as we all know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    What I'm about to tell you is probably some of the most basic advice ever, but it's truer than you could ever believe. Study, study, study! Whether it's flash cards or tutors, always study. Even when classes get tough and difficult to understand, never give up and never give in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is very informative, not only about rhetoric and writing, but about life. We learned so many things pertaining to tolerance and being aware of things going on around us. We also learned how to connect with other people and how to form our own opinions about things and how to effectively communicate those opinions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the discussions we had in class about all sorts of topic and how real Mrs. Hirsch kept everything. We learned about so many things, like how to pick out important information in text and how to properly write papers with relevant information, but also about life skills and how to deal with people.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention during days of lecture and take good notes for yourself later on. Take advantage of research and drafting days you are given and do not, I repeat, DO NOT procrastinate. You are given an ample amount of time to complete your research and your papers in class. Please, use it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because she's an amazing teacher. She teaches you anything and everything you need to know about English. Her assignments are never super hard and she's always there for you if you need help.

    Course highlights:

    I learned everything I needed to know. On how to be a great student to how to be a great teacher. She gives you assignments that you would understand and helps you whenever you need help. She helps you get ready for the next yours to come.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Her tests are never super hard. Always be good for her. She's not a mean teacher but if you do something bad she will warn you but if you keep doing it again she will most write you up or send you down to the office.
