    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course due to the level of analysis and discussion students get to participate in for each novel, poem, or play read. The work load is heavy, however it greatly helps prepare you for the work in college. You get an opportunity to study college- level material, that will likely come up in your future.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include discussion the play, Fences, by August Wilson. It was amazing that the movie came out just as we got through reading it, and it's a beautiful play that follows the life of an African American family attempting to live the American dream.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to read the books, plays, or poems assigned. Don't try to look up summaries on Spark Notes or wherever else, because you will not be able to contribute to the class discussions. A high level of essay writing is expected, so a student who is strong at writing should enjoy this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class, we read Jump and Other Stories by Nadine Gordimer, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, All My Sons by Arthur Miller, poetry by Carol Ann Duffy, Beloved by Toni Morrison, The Road by Cormac McCarthy, and The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I enjoyed the wide range of style, time periods, and themes covered in the works we studied. Although I had already read The Great Gatsby, I was introduced to a lot of new literature and authors I had never heard of.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned not only how to identify literary devices and their functions on tone and theme, but more importantly I leaned how to apply these themes in our own lives and in the world we live in.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the novels more than one time. In the first reading, you miss a lot of important literary techniques. Although the plot is important, be sure not to focus all your energy on studying the plot and appreciate features such as diction, syntax, and symbols.
