    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I liked the class because it was very involved and I learned a lot about the English language. It provided me with a unique view on pieces of text that we discussed and made me a better writer overall by the end of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the interactions we had each class with the teacher and it made the learning more fun, and discussing a piece of text that could be viewed upon differently by each student. I learned how to analyze a piece of text and broaden my point of view on literary devices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study, read the material and be prepared for an in-depth discussion each class which may lead to further learning.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Through out the class, it gives you a great grasp on how to truly write and be able to warp, and manipulate our writing through strong diction and word placement. It definitely helps you prepare for college and for college reports you'll have to write.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights consist of dissecting books and other literary pieces in order to mock and turn into our own style of writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do your work, and don't just try and push through the books; actually take your time to absorb the information you are getting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Ap Language and Composition course is a perfect class for any student wishing to take their first step into more challenging college-level English. Taking this course allowed me to improve my essay writing, expand my knowledge of different literary terms, and gave me skills in literary analysis that helped me when taking the SAT. Now that I am in AP Literature I am so relieved I took AP Language, because without it I know I would have not been prepared. I would so recommend this course to students on the basis of preparedness alone, but I did truly enjoy this class as well.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about AP Language and Composition were the many thought provoking Socratic seminars and essays we were asked to write. In this class we wrote ethics papers on controversial topics, where we were allowed to formulate our own opinion and use our writing to back it up. This provided very real-world application in my eyes, as I was able to educate myself in writing and the world at the same time. The few books we read in class were also very enjoyable and thought provoking, such as "The Things They Carried" which remains my favorite book to this day. more than that, I learned how to look at a document, analyze it, and piece an essay together so confidently that there hasn't been any document since i have felt was either too dense or confusing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To any student thinking about taking this course, my advice would be do your assignments, don't be discouraged if at first you are not scoring so high on essays or multiple choice, and really remember how each essay is formulated. Also, if you are willing to try and write well in class, even when it's your last period on a Friday, it will really come in handy once the AP test comes around. Lastly, always make sure to do your reading because it makes the discussions more enjoyable, on top of keeping your grade up.
