    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend AP English Language and Composition due to its intriguing course material and potential for real-world application. Beyond writing, the class covers rhetorical strategies and research lessons that not only prove relevant to the course itself, but will prove useful in other cases throughout life in which you may be required to persuade others or engage in an independent research project of your own. We also gained the opportunity to cover a wide variety of topics in the news and read several novels with important thematic messages.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite units from the course had to be the one concerning satire. Not only is it an interesting topic of discussion, but I found it extremely entertaining to compose my own work in the field, including a short essay and news article in a topic of choice. By taking the course, I gained a greater appreciation for the importance of the English language in many fields of life and became a much more effective writer as a result.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a class that typically requires you to study. It is more so a skills-based class accompanied by several activities and readings to reinforce new concepts taught in class. Typically, the most difficult portions of the class will be timed-writings and tests centered around particular novels.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it increased my knowledge of important current events and the pressing questions that humanity faces on a daily basis.

    Course highlights:

    During this course, I read multiple thought-provoking texts including The Crucifix, The Scarlet Letter, and Huckleberry Finn. I also participated in class discussion over current issues such as terrorism and the controversy over standardized testing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can provide about this course is to read the texts. Spark Notes is, as always, your best friend in understanding the themes and motifs of a novel, but it cannot give you the complete understanding of the text that is necessary to succeed in this course.
