    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is rigorous and requires a lot of work, but it will help you to learn how to communicate in writing or speaking more efficiently, and it will provide you with skills that you are able to utilize in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is learning how to write like and AP student such as how to write rhetorical analysis essay, argument essay, and synthesis essays. I also was able to learn how to analyze and interpret works of literature such as identifying the tone of the author, the purpose of the piece and so on.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice you to take the course as although it is a bit difficult it is a course that I feel will be very beneficial to you later on in life when you have to write college essays and so on. I advice you to mage your work efficiently and listen to the teacher as not only will your work pile up, but you will not know how to do it when you have no choice to. Also, ensure that you review the content that you learn each day as the course will begin to become repetitive and it will be easier when you have the steps, advice etc. engrained in your mind, so you do not have to consult your notes each time you are given an assignment.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for students who enjoy or have good skills in writing, but I would also recommend this class for those who need help in their writing.

    Course highlights:

    This class contained a high amount of analyzing texts and figuring out what literary and rhetorical devices the writer used. This was the introduction, for me, of leaving the "elementary" essay structure and using words and structures that are used in college writings or professional analysis essays one might read for fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is very rigorous and fast paced. There is a lot of reading and answering questions that assist in learning how to analyze passages and books. Because of this, homework is very important. There is no way of getting completely back on track if you start to fall behind with the amount of homework given.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course has rigorously challenged me to dig deeper into the English language. Throughout the year we break down and analyze stories and scriptures from various authors.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the vast amounts of amazing stories I've read and was able to actually comprehend the authors purpose and what their message they were trying to give readers. I learned how to break down stories into sections and analyze each part to notice major changes or miniscule details but that are actually major in the story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course is to have background information on how to break down a story and to take note of important details the author includes on purpose.
