    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, especially if you plan to go into IB English next year. We are using, in that course, all the vocabulary and literary terms in our essays and journals of the books we read. Reading gets closer and more detailed from here, so everything taught in AP Literature is valuable and worth the effort, whether you pass the test or not.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the novels we studied, and how we dove into DITSO and the difference between a speaker and a narrator, and other simple lessons that helped clear the air on confusing things and is making this year in IB English 3 much easier. The essays we practiced writing built up how I analyze the author's work with restricted time and my own voice as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Highlighters and red pens are a necessity! Take time to find a quiet place to read all the novels, short stories and poems assigned, even if you're friends simply skim through them on the morning of- that is not how you pass the AP exam or prepare yourself for class.
