    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me how to properly formulate essays and analyze literature. I personally get a lot more out of novels now because I can see the meaning behind the text.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the novels we did and the Socratic circles that were conducted in class. I like how all ideas are welcomed as long as they can be backed up (it forces you to use contextual evidence)

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management is extremely important, especially when it comes to reading books and doing the reading reports that come along with it

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to anyone who likes to read and write, and there's no excuse not to take this AP course if you are good at reading and writing. The teacher and course are both excellent!

    Course highlights:

    Starting with an essay is hard, but you are assessed immediately on what you know and what you need to improve on. So you'll maybe do an essay every 2-3 weeks, and in the meantime you'llevar learn about rhetorical devices, vocabulary, and logical fallacies. Also throughout the year you will read a few books.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You may find yourself facing the Brave New World journals, a task all students dread doing as they read the novel. However, you must do this assignment AS YOU READ, and do not wait until the last moment to do it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course! It teaches you great life skills such as writing, reading with better outlook and outcome and the use of your already gained knowledge put to work and better ingrained.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained more confidence as a writer and as a student in general. Putting my knowledge to work when writing and expanding upon it and showing the reader what I have to offer in multiple different standings. By doing so I feel I have also learned a lot more about myself and reaching to the different depths of my brain and my memory and exploring what all I know.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't let the fact that it's an AP course scare you, in fact I would recommend taking this class as soon as possible given that it will help you in your other classes and classes yet to come. This is my most favorite class I have ever taken as far as what I get out of it. This course is not very hard as long as you pay attention and do a little studying. You will have homework possibly a couple times a week but its nothing dramatic. Mrs. Kameraad is amazing and will give you plenty of time to work through things and get comfortable on new topics.
