    Pretty easy, overall.

    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr.Kennedy is a tough teacher who doesn't sugar coat things. He prepares you for college and the real world by teaching you skills that you can use later in life. This course is rigorous, however, if you are willing to do the work and put in the effort it will be far beyond worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I solidified my love for writing and reading. Mr. Kennedy taught me how to achieve the best analytical skills I have ever known. I now have a greater understanding of the things I read and even situations in which I find myself. Taking in details and realizing that there is more than one perception of a thing is applicable to so many situations that I couldn't even describe to you how much it has opened my eyes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for some reading and some tough feedback. If your paper is not up to par, Mr. Kennedy will tell you so because he believes in you and will push you to be the best you can be. Be prepared to every class, do your homework and don't fall behind. It is worse to procrastinate and be forced to try and scramble and catch up than it is to just do the work the night you're assigned it.
