    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work to your best ability, come to class ready with questions, be prepared for class discussions, do outside research into the material if need be to be a step above the rest.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Cannaday has taught me almost everything I know about analyzing literature and producing scholarly essays. Her insight bettered my understanding of the English language and I'm a better writer because of her.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read unfamiliar literature, analyze passages, and interpret the author's purpose. Her essay writing techniques helped me eloquently put my thoughts on paper.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance and participation is key to excelling in this course. There is a lot of in class assignments, and you must understand prior material to advance in the class. There is little chance for those who do not take this course seriously.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I liked being able to share my thoughts about a novel or story and know that it wouldn't be wrong. I also liked being able to learn to write different types of essays and how to really analyze a story for deeper meaning.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze a poem and story for deeper meaning, and how to write essays that are more sophisticated and at a college level. i also was able to increase my vocabulary by writing these essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students who plan to take this course to continue reading! Reading is really important and a great way to increase your writing ability along with your vocabulary. Also try to read as much as you can besides the novels that you read in class. Reading will eventually help you in all subject areas.
