    Do not procrastinate on completing your assignments, especially essays, and do lots of practice tests to prepare for the AP Exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend taking English III AP because it provides a rich, informative foundation for the type of writing and analytical skills that are needed to succeed in college. By analyzing nonfiction pieces, one gains a greater understanding of how rhetoric truly affects the way society perceives things everyday. It is absolutely astounding how much one can learn about a person just through his or her own speech or publication.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of English III AP were definitely reading The Great Gatsby, writing an ode to my current year in high school, and wearing my own "scarlet letter." The Great Gatsby is the perfect symbol of the secularism that was alive in 1920's America. Additionally, writing an ode (eulogy) to my sophomore year in high school was a very emotional turning point for me. The ode marked the halfway point of my high school experience. Lastly, having to create an actual letter to represent a weakness I have really allowed me to get to know myself. While doing this project, I realized how timid I can be and how in order to achieve my goals I need to step outside of the box and stand out.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student interested in taking English III AP definitely needs to set a study goal each day. If he or she can commit to studying for a few hours everyday a huge reward will come on test days. Additionally, finding audio books and modern translations can help students stay on task with their reading and comprehension.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs Benoit is the greatest teacher of all time.

    Course highlights:

    I came into her class barely knowing how to write a rhetorical analysis essay, but by the end, I could write them in 30 mins.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    She give a fair amount of work... Make sure you do it and you won't have any problems with this class.
