    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course forces students to think critically about not only literature, but life in general. The many stories and novels the student will read will cause him/her to sufficiently learn. Interaction with peers, hands on learning, and an enthusiastic teacher makes this course phenomenal.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to look a literature from different perspectives and to think not only literally, but figuratively as well. My essay skills have also improved a great amount by completing this course. In addition, I have learned to think critically, be creative, and give constructive criticism.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off and always complete work with your best effort. Do not get discouraged when your work gets a bad grade at first, because at the end of the course, you will see how much you have grown as a student. Not only will you work improve, but your whole character as well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr.Gaskins pushes you to do your best in each assignment, so he gives you really good feedback and tells you what to make better in the next essay.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the difference between essays and prompts. This helped me alot when it came to writing my university and scholarship essays. I had a basic background of what is expected from certain students when writing about certain topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend for the incoming students to not be afraid to ask for help and create study groups, so that the students can help and motivate each other to do better in the next essay. I also recommend if the class becomes really hard to go to Tuesday and Thursday tutoring. In these tutoring sessions he helps you elaborate and figure out more information to put in the essay you may be working on in class, so not only do you get help but it is probably going to guarantee a better grade because you did all the minimum requirements for an average essay.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is one class that I would take over and over again! The content is interesting, the teacher is absolutely amazing, and the environment is challenging, yet forgiving.

    Course highlights:

    We read through several pieces of literature such as The Lottery and The Prison, and conducted practice SAT reading assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, revise assignments as needed, and always ask questions!
