    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Great teacher that stays on top of the students and makes sure that everyone has the necessary sources to excel in the classes. The class was very quick-paced but I learned a lot and we went even beyond creative writing in prose and discussed poetry and even dove into play-writing.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights were writing plays up to 10 minutes long, and the Creative Journals that were assigned a few times a week. These journals covered many topics and helped me excel in creative writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your homework and if you're absent, make sure to get the information that was covered the day before because it's very easy to get behind.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    it helps with reading and writing and how to understand situations from a visual standpoint.

    Course highlights:

    using your imagination when reading and to make connections while reading the books that were given to read.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are really reading and understanding the passages given and if you do not just ask questions there is nothing wrong with asking questions. if you are not asking questions then most likely you are doing it wrong.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking English 101 Language and Composition (American Experience to be specific) your junior year of high school because the class changed the way on how I view the art of literature and the history of America. This class also gave me a lot of unexpected life lessons I will always be thankful for!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were mainly about each decade of the 1900s. I learned about each decade and how every one of them were different from one another (women's rights, pop culture, civil rights, war).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you consider taking American Experience (AmEx) with Ms. Vanlandingham and Mrs. Samba, please go into this class with an open mind and knowing that you need to be willing to put in work. Once you are in the class, be attentive and do not be afraid to ask questions. As a lasting piece of advice, do not just read the books to get the work done. See each assignment/novel as a new learning opportunity and actually try to show interest in what you are learning. It makes it MUCH easier.
