    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely challenging; with the letters "AP" tacked in front of it, of course it'd be challenging, as it is a college-level course. But that should not shy away any potential students, as this class starts to delve into what authors do to make their writings convincing and powerful. Students will begin to learn what literary devices are, and how they play into a written work; or even a speech. The class focuses on understanding structure and important diction, why an author used this device or why they did not.

    Course highlights:

    Though challenging, this course provided quite a number of interesting reads for students to respond to. While I had the vague idea of what literary devices were, I never learned exactly what they were, and how all authors are using some form of literary devices, be it a beginner or an advanced author. There are many class discussions, too, allowing students to hear how their peers perceive a text and debate about it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off on any of the reading that the course requires; and every time you read, you should annotate the text with post-it-notes, as you will have to discuss it in class tomorrow with peers and the teacher. Time should also be taken to learn the literary devices on your own--the teacher will expect you to do such, as it is essential vocabulary for the course. And most of all, keep up with the class discussion! Pay attention; you do not need to participate, but keeping up with the discussion is important as you may be called upon any time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is a regular high school requirement, but the way Ms. Nylund would explain connections of novels and society kept me engaged and anxious to learn more each day.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how different society viewed women during different time era for example the book "Their Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora N. Hurston, the journey for the main character finding who she was marrying three times.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with reading and pay attention for class assignments.
