Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The reading content that Mr. Moore picks out for the class is very intriguing. He makes reading some of the more complex pieces easier to understand. Although it can be intimidating for some, public speaking is a grade during Socratic seminars in this course. Participating in group discussions can be scary but it actually helped me conquer my fear of public speaking.
This is the class that helped me become a better writer. Although I have much to improve on, being able to stay after with Mr. Moore so he could help me see what I was doing wrong and what I could work on really helped in the end. Also having a teacher who was funny and friendly was a breath of fresh air after suffering from strict, uptight professors in past years. It made me feel more comfortable and I was more likely to ask him questions.

Advice for students:
American Literature, taught by Mr. Moore, is a fun and entertaining class; however, it is not a class that you can just hope to pass showing up the day of a test. A lot of work is put in to the essays and projects in his class. I would advise any student who has the desire to take this course to make sure they are ready to work at home and pick up a book and actually read because you cannot just sparks note the novels we read in there.
