    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very helpful for future college classes, but it is very stressful from day one.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much more in this class than other juniors did in their other Literature classes, which includes in depth SAT prep and harder grading scales. This required me to work harder than I ever had before in any other high school class, but I am thankful I stuck it out.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class, don't be afraid to ask for help. The work is difficult, but it is like that to prepare you for future college classes. I would also suggest working together with other classmates. This class asks for a lot of reading comprehension, but everyone has a different idea as to what a passage might mean, so don't be afraid if you interpret something different. Also, don't wait til the last minute to do the work, some of the work is really long, you might want to do at least a little every night leading up to the deadline.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mrs. Hoel does an amazing job describing tough literature to the students. She also make reading books and learning about literature the most fascinating thing on the planet!

    Course highlights:

    This class is all about the literary journey of America from its beginnings up to the present. We learned about the greats: Thoreau, Whitman, Dickenson, Angelou, Twain and Fitzgerald. We dove into all different sorts of book throughout the course of the year. Be prepared for a lot of brain power.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take anything she assigns lightly. When she means a page worth of information, she MEANS a page worth of information. The reading is sometimes a bit difficult but feel free to always ask to stop and talk about the context of the book.
