    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.
