Always Do the Reading
Background Knowledge Expected
Pretty easy, overall.
Although this course is a requirement for most high school students, It is a course I would recommend to anyone. It is easy enough that you shouldn't struggle, but you always have something to be working on. From vocab, to poetry and novels, you will learn and abundance of English techniques and strategies.
Throughout this course I learned many things. To begin, there is a heavy focus on poetry. You will learn how to analyze and breakdown a number of poems as wells as short pieces of literature. You will have many class discussions and "Socratic Seminars" that leave you with a greater understanding of the topic as well as open you up to talking and discussing items with the class. Vocab is vital in this class, and you will learn copious amounts of SAT vocabulary words. Over all this is a well rounded English course.

Advice for students:
To be successful in this course some background knowledge is necessary. I would refresh your memory on some grammar, and poetry techniques. Study for the vocab, make flash cards or any other techniques that help you memorize things. As long as you put in effort to do your part, this class will be a breeze!
