    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher for this class is beyond amazing. She is very lenient, yet really cares about every student's wellbeing. Also, it is very interesting to learn about allusions and famous poets- all topics that we should know.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about the history of allusions and how we use them every day. Group projects in this class were very fun because they were laid back.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely pay attention to APMCs that you did in AP Lang & Comp, because they continue to pop up throughout AP Lit and don't get any easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you get introduced to a lot of literature that you probably would not read outside the class. This class is very fun and discussion heavy.

    Course highlights:

    I loved being assigned books to read that I never had before. Reading is such a stress relieving activity, and with a busy life it's hard to find time to do that, unless it's a homework requirement. In the class, we also had a poetry unit. I thought it was very valuable that we learned how to interpret and explicate poems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books that are assigned!! You may think that sparknotes is a valuable tool, which it is, but just relying solely on that to write an essay isn't the best choice.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She was very helpful in making the reading both enjoyable for us and for helping us relate the material to our everyday lives. The literature that is focused on in this course isn't easy to get through or understand the first time, so she made sure to expose it to us enough that we all did very well on the AP exam and now enjoy a different type of literature than we'd thought we liked before.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the books that we read and how, even though everyone took different books and perspectives on the topic of that month, we were still able to have really in depth discussions and relate everything back to the book. That was probably what helped me the most, learning to take the concepts taught out of context and actually apply them to myself or other contemporaries.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it! It was absolutely worth all of the effort it requires, as it really teaches you how to think in a different way and can influence how you interact with others.
