    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this AP Literature because it is an enlightening class. This class has opened up my mind to so many genres that I hadn't thought I would like. This class is like a book club that you get to enjoy everyday, I highly recommend this course to those who love reading and what to explore the world of literature.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned how to analyze works of literature and compare them to others which is mind blowing. I have learned literary devices and how to identify them in an author's work and how to use them properly in my own writing. I have learned how to properly write different types of essays and great testing skills when it comes to multiple choice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your work and always read the books, this class will be must easier if you do. Pay attention to what your teachers tells you, it's important. When the teacher evaluates your work and gives you ways to improve, listen to those things and apply them. Open your mind to new things, don't be a stick in the mud if the book the teacher is making you read isn't your favorite genre.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it opens your mind to many genres of books and poetry. Every book you read will be discussed so you get a deeper and better understanding. I hear that many people get scared when poetry is involved but this class teaches you easier ways to analyze and interpret poetry. This class also teaches you to make connections between works of literature, how they are similar and that author's write EVERYTHING for a reason, nothing an author does is by accident or mistake.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course include the many different types of books we have been able to read and are continuing to read. We have read novels and plays including One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Kite Runner, The Cellist of Sarajevo, Othello, The Catcher in the Rye and many more. I have learned that there is a deeper meaning to each of these books than what is just on the surface and literal. Sometimes I am taken back by how deep an author can be in a book.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course, I would recommend it as it is a great opportunity to learn. The best thing you can do to pass the class is apply yourself as best you can, make sure to read ALL the books and do all the assignments given because they will help you on the AP exam at the end of the course. Don't fear poetry or Shakespeare, they are both difficult to interpret sometimes but they are worth the challenge.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone that has a passion in reading or writing. Personally, I never enjoyed sitting down to read books. This class completely changed my thoughts on reading. I enjoy group discussions on the books we read, and if you have any confusion Mrs.Drone is willing to help you. The poems and short stories we read are also quite interesting, and we spend time in class determining what they mean. Overall, very good class, and I would suggest it to anyone that enjoys reading and writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of short story and poetry terms that I had never heard of before, I enjoy reading, and I improved my writing skills. I definitely think I will take these writing skills into my future, and maybe when studying gets tough I will take the time to sit down and read an interesting book to relax. Mrs.Drone is very patient with students, and she is willing to work one on one with each student.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if you don't enjoy reading, I would give this course a try. Again, I didn't enjoy sitting down with a book, and now it is hard to put the book down. Always read the material because there are group discussions, but I promise that you won't regret reading it.
