This class was tough.
Despite the rigorous workload that AICE Literature entitles, that same rigor and high pace has developed my writing skills, and has allowed me to grow in order to thrive in a college setting. AICE Literature will definitely prepare you for independent and vigorous coursework that you'll endure in college.
Having no experience with poetry before, rather than just reading it, I learned to analyze poetry and find theme in, not only tone, but also structure and syntax. The analysis is even more interesting when we discuss it in class. Being a small class of ten students, we were able to play interacting games where a student would express a point about the poem, and if another student tapped him or her on the shoulder, the former student must step down and give the spotlight to the new student. These types of activities encouraged interest in literature and poetry.

Advice for students:
In order to thrive in this class, you must work hard and do the work. If you take the time to finish the assignments then you'll do fine. Also, do not procrastinate because in the end, the workload will be bigger than it originally was.
