    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed my AP Literature class. It helped me become a better writer and helped me think beyond the surface of a book and think deeper and more analytically about it. Also, I like to read, so that was enjoyable aspect. It was only a little difficult in the beginning because like with anything, you have to start somewhere. For me, I never really dug deeper into the meanings of things. I just read a book and accepted it for what it was instead of actually looking to see if there were any hidden meanings or hints behind the words. The books also at first were a bit difficult because I wouldn't understand what was going on in them. However, the more I read them and asked questions, the more I understood them and could collect enough information to write papers. With all this said though, I think this is an awesome course to take if you are extremely gifted in the area of English Literature or if you just need a little push to become a better reader and writer. Also, this course wouldn't have been so amazing without the brilliant work of my teacher Mrs. Baxter. She sat with me many times after school getting a feel for how I write and think. She challenged me many times to analyze things in a piece of literature that had never even thought of before, which ended up helping me in the long run; for that I'm eternally greatful.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights are being exposed to some classic literature. I also learned to properly write a thesis, support my claim with quality evidence, and incoprate literary devices that show the meaning of the piece of work as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you give yourself enough time to read all the books you are assigned. Sometimes if you are involved in extracurricular activities like I was, you will need to set aside some time to read after a busy schedule. Also, for me, reading with a audio book while I was looking at the book itself made reading some of the not-so-fun books a little bit more tolerable. Lastly, read summaries and analysis on the book you're reading. This can give you an in depth approach to the book after you read a chapter in case you were unclear or confused about an event in the chapter/book.
