    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course pushes you to your limits and makes you closely observe passages.

    Course highlights:

    My highlight of the course would be the socratic seminar.You and your classmates get the opportunity to discuss the material in an unfiltered and unsupervised way so the students gets full control.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your reading and always have a black or blue pen! Study your vocabulary words because he always switches the test taking format. Mr. Swirsky does not allow phones or headphones in class. Be prepared for long lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you actually pay attention, and stay connected with the course and the texts that are used in the class it can actually be pretty fun and easy, although it is a LOAD. NO PROCRASTINATION

    Course highlights:

    I learned to scrutinize texts rather closely through annotations, and among breaking up the text I was able to pick out a lot of descriptive words that we’d learned about, such as sytax, diction, parallelism and satire for instance, that helped me to realize what and how devices specifically work to increase the effectiveness of a work as a whole. Some highlights were the reading checks .. so crucial. And the multiple choice was kind of a lot .. Always try your best

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I feel like in order to be successful in this course you must be actually... interested and up to date with the class, or whatever project we’re working on (that can sometimes be quite overwhelming) in order to actually enjoy the class. The more you know the better...

    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.
