    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as it ultimately allowed for me to become a better writer, and taught me the writing skills that I will need for my college education. With this class I was able to develop critical thinking skills, while becoming much more confident in my academic skill areas. A rigorous course such as this helped me develop those skills necessary for college such as work ethic, study skills, collaboration with peers, and time management.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course in particular included argumentative essays, rhetorical strategies in nonfiction works, reports on current events, analyzing poetry, and memoir writing. I learned an abundance of information through taking this course, some of which included how to write a cohesive argumentative essay, applying rhetorical strategies through my own reading, analyzing information from source texts, and becoming a critical reader in reading areas such as expository, argumentative, analytical, and personal texts from different authors and time frames.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe that to succeed in this class you ultimately need to have a strong work ethic, and genuinely want to do well in the course. It is essential to become familiar with any AP style questions, in addition to developing critical thinking skills. Not only does one need to develop these skills, but they also need to complete any summer work assigned and maybe even form a study group in order to study for the exam. Finally, the last advice I would give to anyone considering taking this course is to read all questions thoroughly, make flashcards, focus on your weaknesses, and use all of your resources given to you.
