    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Throughout this course, you learn so much, not only about the books you read, but about the vast world that is literature. Mrs. Baxter does an exceptional job of bringing the tales to life and helping you understand what is going on in the stories.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite book/story read in this course was Fences. It was great because it was I could relate to it, and the movie had also been released earlier this year, so we got to see how literature can change when put on the big screen. I also loved the activities we did with this particular story, and being able to delve deeper into the seemingly simple pockets of it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need excellent time management skills. You also have to be able to ask questions when some things don't make sense, this is one of the most important things you can do! If you don't understand on your own, ask a teacher or even a friend.

    9-11 hours

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Why would I recommend this class? Easy; because it will prepare you for college. In college literature classes, you're going to have to know how to analyze and critique writing at a high level and taking this course does just that. If you take this class you'll be light-years beyond your fellow classmates who didn't.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight i enjoyed from this course was just examining all the different pieces of literature throughout history. I got to see how the time periods and places of origin of different pieces affected the tone and language of it. Each piece had a different style than the next and this in turn taught me how to analyze various works.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to you is to TAKE THIS COURSE! Coming into this course, I wasn't sure how much I would like it. But after taking this class I loved it. My writing has improved drastically and it taught me how to better analyze works of literature and incorporate the use of these techniques in other subject areas. This class will help you become a writer and better your understanding of literature as a whole.
