    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Engaging class discussions, reflections on writing style and organization, and concrete goals are just the tip of the iceberg with this class. Mr. Fouquet is a wonderfully enthusiastic and talented man with an unwavering passion for student growth and development. His class truly transformed the way I view language arts from a burden to an opportunity.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal from this course. Of course, I mastered the basics of writing: transitions, thesis statements, rhetorical analysis, etc. However, it was the revealing of my capabilities as a writer that truly made this course wonderful. Before this class, I never considered myself a good, let alone great, writer. Therefore, I never felt an urge to engage in what I was learning, and that was my biggest mistake through high school. Thanks to Mr. Fouquet, I have the confidence and grit to immerse myself in the subject and show my brightest colors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My only advice would be to come to class each day ready to discover more about yourself and the world. Prepare your mind to be vulnerable and open, and that's when you'll get the most out of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn how to use everyday words and craft them into masterpieces. You also really develop a deeper understanding of difficult texts and create new strategies for essay writing.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning how to write analysis essays. I did not know what they were coming in, but now, I fully understand how to use figurative language and explain how an author uses it to prove a point.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not forget to study literary devices! I can not stress that enough to juniors in the class now. If you do not know what an apostrophe, simile, personification, imagery, diction, or syntax is, then you will need to work extra hard to get a good grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides all the rigor that an AP requires but also provides new creative learning processes and helps you to expand your horizons in the world of writing. I learned so much while taking this course and I also had a fun time as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about writing styles and how to draw in readers. It helped me to become a better writer and a better student. I believe that this class has taught me a lot about organization in my writing and being prepared for everything.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that it is always good to finish homework as soon as you can and don't procrastinate. It can be easy to put off smile work and essays but I learned that with time, the assignments will add up and doing them all the day before they are due will not help you.
