    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Easily the best class I have ever taken. It challenged me and stressed me out at times, but it taught me more than I have ever learned in any of my classes, not only about literature, but about myself as a writer and life in general.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to become a better writer, not how to become a "formula-filler", but an actual, solid writer. I developed my own unique voice and authorship in all my writing. I also learned how to comprehend and analyze what I was reading much better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always turn in your work on time. Work on time management and try not to procrastinate too much (I know it can be hard sometimes). Sometimes the workload can be a bit much, but just know it is preparing you for the future.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to every student in high school - every student. Mr. Foster has a way of teaching that actually helps you learn, and not just memorize concepts for tests. He grades all of his classes with a SBG (standard based grading) scale. This scale is out of four points. All students are given formatives throughout the trimester, and when the end of the course comes to an end, they are given a summative. This summative is a test to see what they really know, and how well they received what was being taught. This grading system is one of the most beneficial things I have ever come across throughout my entire high school career. I will never be able to thank Mr.Foster enough for how well he prepared me for college.

    Course highlights:

    Task Understanding College Readiness Self-motivation: You have to do your work. It can only help you - or hurt you. It is your choice, so you should be able to make an educated decision and choose what you believe is best. Individual College-like Assignments: we were given a syllabus with several assignments on it. It was out responsibility to remember to do them - on time - without a reminder. Mr. Foster would answer any questions we had, but that assignments would not be brought up in class if there was no questions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't have to study but you do have to be involved. If you are involved, you will understand all of the concepts and ideas being introduced. If you choose not to be involved, you can easily fall behind, and then lose motivation to get back on track again. So stay focused, have fun, and do your work (even the individual work!).
