    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class introduced me to the difficulties of college courses while also improving my English skills. Coming from this class, I feel that I am much more advanced in literary understanding than I had been at the start of this course. The instructor, Mr. Eugene, was very helpful. His teaching style allowed me to further establish my time management skills and personal responsibility.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, you will understand the literary elements involved in arguments. You will learn to identify these key techniques by finding them in arguments, and then utilizing them to formulate your own. You will read novels such as The Scarlet Letter and Huckleberry Finn, and note the author's detail, and the significance of small comments or devises that may store more meaning than it would seem.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    - Never fall behind on any work. This is a quickly paced course, and although Eugene typically accepts late work, it is very easy to get swamped in over due assignments. Try your best to turn everything in as soon as you can. -Talk to the instructor if you need help. -Even if you are super shy like I am, try to participate in class discussions. There is no forced participation, but this course is one that is very open to personal ideas. There often isn't a 'right' answer to the questions being asked. Feel free to address your questions, concerns, or to comment without being 'wrong.'

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was the most interesting course I have taken throughout my high school career. The teacher, Mr. Eugene, was incredibly considerate of student circumstances, dedicated to helping students understand the content, and open to all questions. This is a class you will never feel lost in, and what you learn will help you with significant things later in life, such as constructing convincing arguments, developing detailed essays, and analyzing critical data. Mr. Eugene does well with enforcing time management, which will benefit anyone (like I was) who typically procrastinates. I loved this class, and if I had the chance, would retake it in a heartbeat.

    Course highlights:

    The first thing you are going to learn is that everything is an argument. Anything can be debatable. You will learn how to analyze argument through the tone of the author, literary elements such as metaphors, archetypes, pathos, ethos, and logos, etc., writing style, and many other contributing factors. The student will read literary classics, in my case, The Scarlet Letter, and analyze subliminal messages in every page. You will touch up on the familiar english topics, such as theme, but will divulge much deeper. Aside from workload, you will learn time management and self motivation from the teacher.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, never procrastinate on your work. Although Eugene evades a late policy, you should stay on top of things, or else you will get lost in the work. Keep a steady pace and don't allow yourself to get stuck behind. Secondly, my advice would be to actively participate. In Eugene's perspective, there are no wrong answers. Share your thoughts and observations, especially if you are typically shy as I am. This class is a great opportunity to speak up without feeling singled out. Study as frequently as you can. The best way to study is to read something (a poem, a novel, a paragraph, even something as simple as a facebook post or text message) and use the skills you've learned in class to analyze it. Don't use Sparknotes or Shmoop for the novels that you are required to read. The discussions in class will be based on small, but significant details such as word use, whereas study sites focus on general ideas.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend taking AP English Literature and Composition because it vastly improves your writing schools. It's a class that's very heavy on reading, which makes you evaluate the word choice or diction that an author uses and their purpose.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning how to improve my writing and it's been helpful from the first day I took the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're considering taking this course, I'd highly advise you to take it now. This is a college prerequisite class, if you take the AP Exam, and score highly then you won't have to take it in college.
