    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of my favorite classes as a freshman I loved being in that class. We read very interesting stories that wasn't boring and everyone got to interact to it. I enjoyed the topic of my research paper we had many fun days in the class. She was also very funny and laid back.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were when we watched and read To Kill a Mockingbird it was really good. I learned some good life skills and good English material she taught us a lot they I still use today as a senior.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay focused! Along as you work hard and turn everything in you grade will be good. Freshman English is probably the most easiest class in high school but it does give you the help you will need once you take the other English courses throughout high school.
