    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this to other students because you receive a more in depth course about novels and other parts of literature.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to understand how authors thought when they were writing there pieces and I was also able to know what they were trying to get a reader to understand when reading their pieces.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you always do your work on time. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I found the teacher was nice, however not very organized

    Course highlights:

    It was truly a very basic English class, so it was a continuation of the 11th grade English. Never challenging or interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take an IB English instead of English 12

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class for it teaches you how to analyze a poem, short-story, or a book and it is very useful for college because it is seen as a college class.Yet, it teaches you how to write amazing essays and how to expand your idea in order to catch the readers attention and it causes a student to think outside the box and see how the author revealed their ideas in the book and how the structure, style and literature devices are used beautifully to create their characters and showing how we are able to relive their life and whether or not that narrator is a reliable resource or isn't and this is a decision we have to make when reading any book the teacher tells us to read.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to become a better writer and how to incorporate quotes correctly and in a natural flow and also explaining what the author meant and in order to do that you must ask yourself what is the meaning behind it and it should not be an obvious answer and think about why the author wrote that and what it means to the author and the feeling you get when reading the quote. I also learned how to slow down when I give a presentation on a book or any research I had to do for the IB exams. Yet, this class gave me the courage to speak my mind whether I was wrong or right on an answer and also thinking outside the box of what the author wanted to show his or her audience. Not only that but, I learned how to use the information of the author and the book to compare anything in the world and what helps the most is that I can find something to compare it to either culture, religions to any countries in the world. This class has made me a thinker and it also made an impact on me that each time I get a book I try to find the symbols and what they mean and see the structure, the style of the writer and the literary devices that are used in order to make the book even richer of its main theme(s).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I give is to read the books for you have to write essays and also to take the class serious and not leave things at the last minute because you will get a F in the class because this class is seen as a college level class and the people who take it are seen as adults. Another advice I would give is asking for help and becoming friends with the teacher because they can really help you. For I will not forget Mrs.Cooper, she has helped me so much and with the difficulty of facing my learning disability I was able to have an A- and become a great writer too.
