    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First off, Ms. Freed is an amazing teacher - if you need help with something, whether it's the latest paper she assigned, a college application, or your taxes, she will always help you. She taught 7/7 classes, helped out with clubs, was the department chair, taught college classes, and STILL was available for her students. The course was great too, because the material was intriguing. The literature books were not all classics that everybody has heard of a million times - they were new and different than I had expected to read. The course goes by so fast because the work assigned is given to you way in advance because it's such an organized class - you always know what you're going to be doing next.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the style authors use to write. We read one book, a memoir, in which the author used no quotation marks when expressing dialogue. At first, I hated that and hated the book because I couldn't understand it - but then, as I read it more and more I began to understand that was the author's style, and I began to appreciate why he did it. Literature, as a course, gave so much more freedom to analyzing writing that no other English course I'd taken did.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! Everything you need to know will be said in class, probably multiple times. If you ever don't understand something, Freed will explain. She literally answers emails instantly and is almost always in her classroom.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Verdensky does a great job teaching how to write essays by leaving it all up to you to find out through trial and error. She is not too specific with what she expects but that leaves students with a broader choice of how to write essays.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is the experience of actually learning how to write an MLA college essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to her for help on revising your essay!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to every student because not only is the teacher challenging, but the course content is. I have never learned so much in just one semester of English.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the deadlines. Without deadlines, many students procrastinate but Mrs. Verdensky was clear and concise about what she expected out of each student. I learned that it is in my best interest to seek help when I need it because my teacher was not coming to me asking what I needed. This course prepared me for college by a milestone. I learned many things about thesis statments, poetic elements, research format and content, etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to always seek help when needed, because Mrs. Verdensky does not hold each student's hand. I have learned many things from her outside of lectures just because I took the initiative to do it myself. Also, I would advise students to take advantage of the course materials on the course content section in her class. She does not direct you to it, but you are expected to navigate through what is available for you.
