    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an essential to becoming a good writer and nonfiction interpreter. Ms. Joyner presents a curriculum that is critiqued at the end of the year by students, relying on their advice to make it even better for students year after year. My experience under Ms. Joyner was very good, allowing for me to grow continuously in my knowledge on how to interpret nonfiction literature. With the use of Socratic seminars and presentations, the class became much more easy over time. That being said, studying and completing assignments is essential to performing well, as is the same with all AP courses of course. Without doing the assignments, one will not progress in their knowledge, only having the lessons to rely on. This class is hard, which is why you should take it first. It is better to take a hard class before an easy one, as it provides you background that will help you excel in the latter. I took AP Lang first, and then found myself performing well in AP Lit. If you work hard and enjoy Socratic seminar's you will greatly enjoy this class. If you are lazy and want a class to sleep in, this is definitely not your class of choice.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts were the AP practice exams, providing a baseline for one to build upon, my original score being a 3 and final being a 4. I learned how to properly structure an analysis, how to analyze a text for its differing details, and how to write a college level essay.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, study hard, ask questions, and talk to Ms. Joyner for advice and help whenever you are struggling. She is a good teacher who is willing to do her best to make sure you do your best. Do your part!
