    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students who want to improve their writing skills and are willing to put in a great deal of effort to do so. Every Friday, we were assigned a timed writing that was graded on a 0-9 scale. These essays prompted us to analyze the author's rhetoric, argue the validity of the author's claim, or present an argument that synthesizes information from several given sources. We spent a great deal of time improving our writing through these timed writing as well as our "YAY" projects in which each student chooses an author from the Modernist era, reads four of their books, and composes five different essays. Although these tasks were challenging, they greatly improved my writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly structure my writings, as well as how to fill my essays with more substance and less fluff while still using rhetoric. Having these superior writing skills has definitely helped me in several other classes in my senior year and I'm sure will continue to help me through college.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate in this class. Once you get behind it is almost impossible to catch up. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions along the way. Your AP Language teacher wants to help you become a better writer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the student's writing is torn to shreds at the beginning, their final papers show how much they've improved due to the constructive criticism given and writing skills that were taught. This course was a lot of work, but it was well worth it!

    Course highlights:

    There is a formula to great writing and students will learn the secrets. They will then utilize those secrets to create masterpieces, compared to their previous works at least.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait last minute and don't let procrastination weigh down true potential! Take papers and set checkpoints before the due date to get parts done ahead of time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class does an amazing job at preparing a high school student or college. The work load is tough and there are non-stop projects through out the year. However, every student coming out of the class knew how to write a well written essay in 45 minutes and all about rhetoric.

    Course highlights:

    Reading all of the classics and then having deep, meaningful debates on each one was my favorite part of this course. This course teaches you how to be a better writer. I learned about rhetoric, schemes and tropes, logical fallacies, and to never use "you" when writing an essay.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of your work. There are essays about books that you need to have read and quizzes on time periods that you need to study at home. Doing everything the night before only gets you no sleep, and bad grades.
