    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course provides students with the ability to develop exceptional analytical and composition skills that do not just benefit the student for their AP National Exam, but for multiple essays and papers that will be assigned in the future. It is rigorous in the grading and the content that is covered dealing with both the essays and multiple choice questions, is somewhat arduous when answering and responding. In addition, [experiences may differ] weekly vocabulary tests that asses your knowledge not only on what the word means in context, but how to correctly spell that word however, help the student develop his or her vocabulary that can be put into papers, presentations, or just any normal conversation outside of class. This class is very rewarding overall.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained the capability to thoroughly write three different types of essays in one sitting. This class not only teaches writing skills, but also develops your endurance level for being able to sit and take a test that is quite lengthy. Furthermore, there are techniques learned and mastered through the course that can be put towards future use whether its writing essays in college or columns for your school newspaper. Overall, I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to either develop exceptional writing skills, or further master them. In addition, the weekly vocabulary quizzes help expand your vocabulary that can be put to use in many other different situations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would give students the advice to thoroughly understand how to write a particular essay in question and how to answer specific questions that each essay comes with. Also, I would recommend that students learn from mistakes quickly and efficiently before their next essay that is written in class. Students should also be able to write a full, five paragraph essay in one class period, as well. When it comes to vocabulary I would recommend making note cards for the words or using a helpful cite/app called Quizlet to alleviate the burden of studying.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed this class because Mrs. Fitzgerald was not only a genuinely kind person, she was very knowledgeable and prepared us very well for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about writing the kind of essays that we'd need to know for the AP exam, and we also read through a multitude of literary works, including essays, novels, and historical pieces. The highlights of the class were the discussions that we had, as the atmosphere was very open and we all felt comfortable expressing ourselves.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it, absolutely. Not only will the writing skills benefit you when you have to write college essays, you will be very prepared for the exam, and the discussions help you get a great sense of the literature that you read.
