    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone who is willing to take the challenge! The teacher will work with you and help you in any way she can, you just have to meet her halfway!

    Course highlights:

    Elizabeth Wright is an outstanding educator, from whom I learned not only how to write professional essays, but some valuable life lessons as well. I was able to learn and develop new writing skills, as well as learn how to manage my time efficiently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the teacher, she knows what she's talking about. When she gives you constructive criticism, take it to heart and you will see the improvement in your writing. Do the assignments and essays. They are meant to help, not hurt.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it provides an excellent framework for learning how to write an essay and provides ample experience on annotation. If you can excel in this class, you can excel in any other literature class. The reasons that I would not recommend it is that the things you learn in the class don't necessarily match up with the skills that are necessary on the test. For instance, many of the annotation schemes that I learned were helpful in their own way, but didn't benefit me that much because they didn't help me learn how to write essays in a way that I could easily understand. Much of the work was segmented into learning different skills, so the end goal was a mystery most of the time. Granted, the teacher's experience in the class and AP test was invaluable, because I could take the parts of that knowledge that I needed and implement my own understanding and writing strategies. In this way, the work was actually quite enjoyable and flexible.

    Course highlights:

    Essentially, I gained a thought process. I learned how to dissect a prompt or passage in a way that would benefit me and allow me to achieve the final product by using my own writing strengths.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you have to work with the teacher to understand what is necessary. It's the type of course that is easy if you do the assigned work, your average should be fine. The most important thing is that you find out what will be necessary on the final AP test and let the teacher know what you can do well in order for them to tell you how to get from a writing strength to a 5
