    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course. Having been in the English Honors track all four years of high school, I can say that I attained the greatest preparation for the AP English test in this class. The classroom environment and activities are both educational and interesting. There is never a day in class when we do not learn something new.

    Course highlights:

    I greatly appreciate the daily allusion and daily style practice that takes up the first ten minutes of class. These brief lessons are meant to make my classmates and I better writers in preparation for three essays on the AP test and for college. Additionally, we also get reading guides for novels and plays we read to gain a better understanding of the material when read in and out of class. These provide greater comprehension aid that is done independently. Another classroom activity that we do as a part of daily style is poetry analysis or thesis writing, before having to write an AP style essay on the poem or prose passage during one class period. This activity and everything elso we do, though sometimes challenging is all meant as preparation for the AP exam and I really appreciate that we do that. I've learned so much about looking for particular clues when answeing AP multiple choice questions or how to directly answer the question for essay prompts instead of wasting time with filler information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who are taking this course should be prepared for a lot of independent reading with long reading guides. They should also be forewarned about extensive poetry and prose analysis as well as many AP multiple choice practice sections. Almost all writing done in the class is AP style essays, instead of research papers or argumentative essays written in previous years. Students should be advised to pay attention and try to enjoy the books that they read because they span a variety of interests and writing-styles.
