    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course helps to advance your writing abilities especially on essays. The course will help to prepare you for your college essays and essays that you will write in college classes. You will also be taught how to further analyze texts for essay purposes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to better structure my essays and use textual evidence in order to better my stance. The course was a decent balance between individualized and partner work. Even though there is a lot of writing involved in the course you do start off slow and work your way up to harder essays.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should always take your time to learn the structure of a well written essay. Always use quotes and further analyze them. In depth analysis based on the text is a major key to a well written and highly scored essay.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires dedication and intricate thinking. However, the amount of exposure to resources and methods of thinking are worth the time. This course takes English to a whole new level. It challenges your thinking and helps improve reading and writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the philosophy unit of this course. Learning about Plato and decarte weee truly a treat. Their philosophies generated an "ah ha" moment that encouraged further thinking and even the creation of my own philosophies. I enjoyed dissecting their writing and learning about their history and impact on our world back then and today. Philosophy isn't easy to understand, but it allows us to create our own ideas and it teaches us how to critically think on a deeper level. There are no wrong answers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of your assigned books. Although they may seem boring, the style of writing and content allows you, the reader to travel to the era of the author and experience what they have written on the pages of the books. Also, the helpful handouts are versatile and can be used in many courses. I've used many of the helpful handouts from my LANG teacher to write research papers and essays.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you need to advance your writing skills. If you are someone who doesn't like to write, analyze or annotate, and read books on your own time I would not recommend this course for you.

    Course highlights:

    This course really expanded my thinking process in terms of reading in depth and looking at passages in a way I wouldn't have before. The class really helped me improve my writing and expand upon my original thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay up to date with the reading!! No matter how much you don't want to read the book, read the book!! Try not to procrastinate and don't skim over any of the passages. Also time yourself for the essays because you wont have all the time in the world to do them during an assessment.
