    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I struggled a lot in this class. Basically all you do is write essays and read books. The whole year is diving deep into the meanings of the books your read.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the end of the year project because it was fun and I learned how to understand the meanings of books.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and understand the story.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved learning how to dig deeper and really understand what the author meant by reading in between the lines. So now I feel like I can analyze anything and do a decent job at it.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights from this course were the final project where we taught the class about some prospect of the books that we read in a way that we didn't discuss in class. And also the book the things they carried, it was a really good book that I don't think I would have liked or even understood half as much if I hadn't taken the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to what the teacher is saying in class and remember it for when you need to add details or ASR to your essays you will write. It will really boost your grade if you can retain what they explain about the novels in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to juniors at ZCHS because it strongly prepares you for college courses while still being in a high school academic setting. It is a challenging class to take during high school but I strongly believe my writing skills, as well as my ability to take multiple choice tests, drastically improved after taking this class.

    Course highlights:

    A big highlight for me after taking this course was doing well on the essay tests. I struggled with writing essays in my freshman and sophomore years but after taking AP Lit, I felt confident when writing in-class essays which was a new feeling for me. I am now able to take college level English classes as a senior without feeling totally overwhelmed and stressed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise the incoming students to this class to be sure to take the time to read the books outside of class. A lot of students tried to just Schmoop or Spark Note the books before the essays and it definitely showed in their writing skills and lack of depth.
