    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course pushes you past your limits, but the knowledge you gain is worth it. It teaches analytic skills, writing skills, reading skills, and also grants you with a firm grasp on what a real English course consists of. You're not learning basics anymore, and instead you're diving deep into iconic pieces of literature and the many ways that writers express their work through the many different languages and devices; whether it be examining novels, poetry, song lyrics, prose, etc., the class offers an enormous variety of works that you'd find are much deeper than what they seem on the surface. Overall, it's an inspiring class that I would recommend to anybody who wishes to challenge themselves.

    Course highlights:

    The brightest highlight in this course I'd say is seeing the many different perspectives of things. While you might analyze something to be a certain way, there is always going to be someone else in the class that has a completely different view than you did. It opens your eyes to lessons outside of the English class, such as the understanding that you shouldn't judge someone that you see based on the outside, because there's always so much more to the story. The other highlight would be learning the depth of what goes into literature. It's more than words on a page. There are devices, symbols, languages, allusions, and many other things that make up a piece of work in order to make it what it is. And to learn those many different devices, symbols, or languages that I had no idea existed was incredible.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need persistence and time management skills. While I only put in 6-8 hours, it was stressful. There are assignments that you will spend hours on in one night, or there are just many assignments that you have to keep up with in general. It isn't your average class that consists of going home and simply getting the work done in ten minutes. It takes time and effort to keep a high grade, that you have to have the motivation to keep from falling behind. I recommend using the schedules that they give you. If the teacher is giving, for example, an assignment that takes three weeks, that requires you to be responsible enough to do a little bit of that work every day to guarantee getting it done on time without an overload of work in the end.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class not only to those who love literature and desire an in-depth look at the inner workings of books and poems based on fiction, poetry, and mythology but also for those who are looking for a challenge but fun course their senior year of high school.

    Course highlights:

    While there is a lot that I will take away from my time spent in AP Literature is the time we spent honing and defining what it meant to "read like a professor" as it has opened up a whole new door for me when it comes to reading as I am able now to pick up on minute details and not only find connect them to other works but also understand how it relates to the text as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this class is not to fall behind on the reading or the work that comes along with it as once you fall behind it is hard and near impossible to catch back up. I would also advise a future student to be open to what your teach has to say as he or she will challenge the way you look at and understand reading and writing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course, especially through the aid of the teacher Mrs. Sheehan, helps better prepare you for college. The rigor of the course challenges you, and challenge always makes for a better student.

    Course highlights:

    I am currently in the class right now, but since starting the class, Mrs. Sheehan has taught me many things about my writing. The class is all about analysis, and I am learning to write better analysis of stories, poems, and novels.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should always keep up with your work because it is very easy to fall behind.
