    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone that likes to challenge themselves. This class is hard but not impossible. You will be assigned homework during the week as well as on the weekends. Every weekend you will have to write a three page essay on a reading book. As well as having to write a research paper at the end of the year.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of taking the class is that you will experience a college like class. Before I went into the class I didn't know what MLA was. Thanks to my teacher she was able to explain throughly. This is very beneficial since in college every paper has to be written in MLA format.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give students comsidering this course is to read the novel your assigned at least every day for 30 minutes. This will help you finish your book in time which will allow you to write your essay before it is due and allow you to hand it to your teacher so she can give you feedback on what you should improve.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not for the weak willed. Every day is a new challenge and to set forth on this challenge is a journey. You have to go into this class ready to read beyond the pages, but it takes motivation to do so, however, motivation is easy to find considering that each success is a challenge to reach all its own, thus making it all the better. Therefore, you have to go in motivated. If you do, you will come out successful.

    Course highlights:

    A couple of months ago, we read "Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka in class. To read it, one would see that it is a man who turned into a bug, and that is exactly how I read it, but when it was taken to class, I was introduced to new ideas. New metaphors were provided and these created a new meaning for the story. Throughout the book, you are left to think that the main character has literally been turned into an insect, but Mr. Snyder introduces metaphors for what that could mean. For instance, its associations. What do we think when we hear "Bug"? We think "Vermin", "Pest", "Disgusting". Then we are given the question: "What if he isn't a bug at all?

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course will be difficult, but the best thing to do is consider what you can contribute to the class. Mr. Snyder leads the discussions, but what can you add to it? Hearing the ideas of others and adding your own makes you start to think in all dimensions of that box you were once in. So read, analyze, share, and write. In doing so, you will not only become a better writer, but you will also begin to think in different ways.
