Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The elevated reading selections and higher understanding of college expectations is invaluable. The teacher: Mrs. Davidson, is one of the most caring and loving educators I have ever had the immense privilege of learning under. The coursework is properly challenging and the preparation for the final AP exam at the end of the year is extensive. Mrs. Davidson is happy to aid in any area of the class of which struggle may occur and provides wonderful advice for the exam. An absolute delight of a course to take. (Plus, a high enough score on the final AP exam can meet requirements of certain classes in college, exempting the need to take them again.)
From this course I gained elevated diction, AP test taking skills, and a greater appreciation for classic books such as The Bell Jar, Hamlet, and many more works. The extensive practice timed essays and multiple choice tests aided classmates and me by preparing us for the final AP exam at the end of the year. The expectations of the class as well as the teacher were quite similar to what would be imagined in a college course. Overall taking AP Literature taught me what to expect in my coming year as a freshman in college and I wouldn’t trade the experience and increased knowledge for anything.

Advice for students:
To students considering taking this course, my advice would be not to shy away from a college level class in high school. Take the leap because there are scores of people who are ready and willing to help you if you need it. If you feel like you are proficient enough in your studies to pass the class then take the chance and sign up, because you will not regret it. Sure it may seem difficult at times, but that is what is so exciting about the challenge, about pushing yourself and seeing what you are truly capable of. By the end of the year I guarantee you will feel completely prepared for the AP exam, and if you pass it with a high enough score then you can exempt yourself from college courses that are met by the AP score you attain. It is a class that will not disappoint for those looking for a challenge and a chance to skip over a college course or two.
