    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would totally recommend this course, the teacher has a clear passion of teaching this subject, and does it so thoroughly, and so interestingly. She is patient, and compassionate. The course itself was also very interesting, you learn a lot more than "just literature" but about life as well.

    Course highlights:

    I also left with a new perspective on life. We are all essentially characters in our own story, I learned of sonder, the realization that everyone is the main character in their own stories, and in turn everyone else has a life as equally as complex as our own. It challenged the societal acceptance of a “me” attitude. This course gave me a fresh new insight on the human condition, which I was able to apply to my own life to become a more compassionate person.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. This course is an AP Course (which means you get college credit should you meet the minimum required test score) so therefore expect challenge. 2. This course is not for someone who does not like English class. If you don't do well in English, I would suggest avoiding this course, because while you may love the teacher, you will hate the work. 3. This course is challenging and requires you to be self disciplined, so be sure to schedule your time in to complete all of the homework. 4. If you put off homework or readings, you WILL become overwhelmed by the mass of homework as a result of putting it off. 5. If you are having trouble, always speak up, the instructor will ALWAYS help you, and will never make you feel like you are dumb. 6. The instructor is very lax, so if you are one of the students who always does their work, but then one day you find yourself completely swamped, talking to her and letting her know does wonders. She values communication, and understands the responsibilities that come with a high school senior. So long as you aren't consistently slacking, she will cut some slack to those who have proven themselves responsible. 7. Do not abuse #6, she will notice, and will no longer be willing to provide extensions. 8. Expect a lot of reading. At least 2 books a quarter. 9. Expect a lot of writing 10. Go to tutoring with her if you need help. She is a great tutor and will make sure you understand by the time you leave. 11. Don't be afraid to speak up in discussions- She loves and values those who really enjoy getting into discussion about the topic/book/analysis. I know it can be awkward, and if you aren't an extrovert, it can be difficult, but speaking up (despite my introvert tendencies) was one of the best decisions I could make because it showed her that I was putting effort into the course, and that I was enjoying it. 12. Don't be afraid to try something new with her. Yearly she hosts the Shakespeare contest, I never thought I could stand up and recite Shakespeare but I did, and I won 3rd in the contest (I also got 50 extra credit points just for participating). 13. This class is really amazing, you will feel like a brand new person with brand new outlooks on life when you leave this class, allow yourself to absorb it and love it, and you will 100% love this class and leave with a new outlook on life!
