    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is extremely nice and responsive to your needs. She has helped me with essays for admission and given great advice concerning college. The classroom setting is extremely relaxed and she provides students with many opportunities to share their ideas and interpretation of books. Her assessments are extremely simple as long as you do what you're supposed to. Overall I'm happy I took the class.

    Course highlights:

    Reading Hamlet and Kite Runner. I learned a lot about how to assess tone and purpose on a deeper level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please be responsible. If she gives you vocabulary, study it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because we read very interesting literature and approach it with a lot of critical thought. However, a lot of the work can tend to be unnecessary.

    Course highlights:

    Reading Winesburg, Ohio was definitely a highlight as it was a very intuitive book. We learned a lot about improving our writing and keeping the audience in mind, which was very beneficial for persuasive writing. It very much improved me as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thorough when you read the books, it will give you a lot more material for timed writings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely enjoyable. Despite the class being an AP class, the books taught are easy to understand, the teacher is amazing, and you learn a lot of useful information about writing. Along with writing and novels, we studied how literature effected people throughout history and word wealth vocabulary.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite book was "The Scarlett letter" and "Winesburg, Ohio" there have been few times that I wanted to read a book that has been assigned to me. The plot was interesting and the actual book was surprisingly easy to read. Also class discussions were great because we did them in a Socratic seminar format. Listening to how other people interpret the books and different works that we read really helped me to further understand the book.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate! The work load you are required to complete is large. It is not worth getting behind because you want to miss a day of homework. Also study your word wealth thoroughly. The prefixes and suffixes will appear in tests throughout the year and on the final. Lastly, if you are expected to read a book, read it and take notes. The books you read follow you all year long and next year if you plan on continuing AP English. Nothing is impossible, if you put in your most then you will come out with a great grade. Good luck.
