    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP English Composition is an incredible way to improve your writing skills. By reading advanced novels, plays, poetry, and prose, you will become familiar with great writing, and begin to emulate it yourself. Even if you despise language, I guarantee you will enjoy and participate in the Socratic seminars held for each novel you read. They are engaging, exciting, and thought-provoking.

    Course highlights:

    This course made me curious, it let me find joy in reading, wanting to go ahead of the rest of the class. The weekly essays forced me to truly understand my own writing, and the improvement you will see from the beginning to the end of the year will astonish you. I learned how to identify symbols, write essays, and analyze poetry among many other things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be vigilant in your reading. Skimming sparknotes for a novel or play the morning of a seminar will not cut it. You will have to read the actual book. Reread your writing! This helps a lot when improving, and the teacher will leave her own comments on your essays to help guide you.

    I recommend this class so much because Mr. Wells helps you get through it, even if it is struggling work, he will guide us through what is right for us.

    The highlights of this course was to learn about famous english writings from the past. Plus, we do a lot of poems as well. He helped us understand deeply and comprehend the writings we had to learn.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for people who have a very serious interest in literature and analyzing classic works of fiction. Anyone else I probably wouldn't recommend it to.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight would probably be reading the Great Gatsby. I learned a lot about literary analysis, as well as ways to spot thematic elements in literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the books thoroughly and carefully. Don't think that Wikipedia or spark-notes will be of much help.
