    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps students really understand a college level English class and push themselves to go outside of their limits. If a student does not enjoy English I would not recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to timely write papers with enough information and enough commentary to succeed in my writing and I also learned how to analyze a book or article while I am reading it so that I can understand the information quickly. We read many articles, poems and books and knowing how to analyze them was very important for the assignment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this class, it is very important to do your work, read the material and ask questions. Do not be too embarrassed to ask questions, Mrs. Calkin is always willing to explain something you understand and will help with things you are struggling with. When vocab is assigned think of the word as more than just a definition so that you really understand how the word is used.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is absolutely a blast! Mrs. Calkin is a wonderful teacher who makes the class interesting, and intriguing. Additionally, she challenges you ethically, almost as much as scholastically.

    Course highlights:

    We have several Socratic circles over the year where each student discusses their take on the reading, and shares opinions. We do multiple types of writing. Mrs. Calkin does great in preparing you for the AP exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I know that many students take 30 minutes on their essays in this class and "wing it" so to speak. My advise is to completely immerse yourself in this opportunity to thrive in her class.
