    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is perfect for anyone looking for an intellectual class, even if a student was math or science oriented. It helps put the world in a different perspective and allows students to discuss controversial issues today in historical context, perfect writing skills, and be introduced to college-style classes. It is truly the most beneficial classes a school can offer.

    Course highlights:

    AP Literature provides an opportunity to read and discuss classic literature in a fun and scholarly environment. We examine a myriad of works from poems to plays to novels. I personally have discovered my favorite book from our summer assignment, Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. Even though I sway more towards the math and science aspects of school, I am always excited by this class. We learned about different philosophical beliefs such as existentialism in The Stranger by Albert Camus and related it to contemporary works such as the film Fight Club. We learned about the injustice of class division and its hypocrisy in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Ernest. Every day in the class is an incredible learning opportunity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to excel in AP Literature, students cannot procrastinate. Reading the work bit by bit each night is essential. Procrastinating a novel and analysis to the last minute is not feasible. As long as students read the novels and are well read on history, the class is not too difficult.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend taking this class to any student wishing to go into an English major. Mrs. Darling will prepare you for not only a heavy workload but also the challenge of analyzing literature on a mature level. I would not recommend taking this class if you are not prepared to take it very seriously.

    Course highlights:

    I have to be honest and admit that there were not many highlights of this course, but one would be any time we had a group discussion about a novel. This allowed us to understand things on a deeper level and it opened my eyes many times. I learned how authors use a multitude of different techniques to write on a much more complex level.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to never procrastinate. The assignments given are lengthy and you will not be able to easily complete them last minute.
