    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me think critically as I read. I was able to understand beyond the text and was not forced to haphazardly annotate for a grade. In that course, we dove into the reading and discussed as a class. I was able to hear and understand how others understood the readings, and every discussion was anything but superficial. I learned to read between the lines which made me wonder what the author really thought. I learned how to write effective arguments. I learned how to discriminate how an author supports his or her claim. I learned how to synthesize arguments to make my own claim.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning to analyze texts with various lenses and loved learning how to find the author's purpose. However, I loved learning how to read texts in depth and thinking of every side of an argument. I was challenged as I was asked the hard questions such as why do you think the author said that and what affect did that author have on society in that point in time or vise versa. I also enjoyed the class discussions where I was able to share my analysis of a piece which others might have not thought of and hearing others thoughts and being mind blown from time to time. The course was a highlight in my high school career, because I was encouraged to think about all of the plausible situations which gave a certain depth to the technical course work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise a student to ask questions and work hard with an open mind. It is also necessary to read the texts at least two or more times to really understand them. Also, communicate with peers in the same class, as they may have the same questions as you about the texts or may have a different perspective on what the text is saying.
