    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It really helps in prove your writing and essay writing skills. I was introduced to literature that I wouldn't have read if I hadn't taken the class. It helps develop literature analysis skills, which can be very beneficial. As an aspiring writer, this class has helped me personally in achieving goals I have set for myself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned literature analysis, which I found it was rather good at. I learned how to write and prepare for a research paper. I was introduced to a variety of literature and my newfound love of Shakespeare. Looking at great works of literature, I have learned how I can improve my writing, in terms of themes and character development. Also, I learned how to effectively communicate book analysis to my peersurprise in socratic seminars.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should read all of the chapters and don't just look up summaries. Reading and annotating is good practice and helps improve how you process information. You should study the tone words and other vocabulary words because they are useful for the AP test. When answering multiple choice questions, look for the best answer and not just a right answer. There can be multiple answers that answer the question.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it has helped me grown as a writer and I feel more confident in my ability to analyze a text and develop an intellectual stance on it.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights of this course were being able to have group discussions and seminars on the texts we read. This in turn helped me learn how to question certain occurrences in the text, as well as analyze the meaning and theme of those occurences

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete your CRs on time and annotate everything you read! These are both vital to not only the grades you will receive in the class but will add to your overall knowledge and understanding of the discussions occuring within the class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language and Composition prepares students for the writing of an upperclassmen. It teaches diligence and reveals how quickly one's writing can develop when done often. Learning how to thoroughly analyze pieces of literature may seem daunting at first, but with practice, it becomes natural.

    Course highlights:

    We explored a few novels and many short stories. My favorite was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. In this course, one learns how every object, person, and place symbolizes and idea or theme. Books become even more interesting when one reads them knowing that there are many interpretations surrounding each chapter. I loved doing seminars and discussing with classmates the symbolism of who Gatsby was, the green light that always alludes Gatsby, and the contrast of different settings.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you must do your homework. If you do not, your writing will not get better and you will read friends' essays and realize that your writing is not as developed as theirs is. When you question yourself as to why that is, go through your writing assignments and complete them meticulously. If homework is done soon after it is assigned, the class will be much more beneficial than if homework is put aside until another time.
