    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because if you end up passing, you can receive college credit. The course itself focuses on literary works of non-fiction and what symbols they describe. The class describes how different books, like the Grapes of Wrath, contain meanings deeper than what the words literally mean. It is very interesting to unlock the unknown within books.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course for me was reading and finishing The Grapes of Wrath. It is a very long book, but every chapter within has many meanings to it that relate to the Great Depression. I learned about the metaphorical meaning of different situations within the book. Another highlight was studying different literary terms and how they are used in books.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, I set aside time in the evenings to review the work from the day to ensure that I understood everything. If I was confused, I always asked the teacher to help me out. Study materials such as notecards or practice essays helped me know what to do ahead of time and know the topics discussed in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Reif's class is difficult. You can't put things off until last minute with her and her tests are far more complicated than your average high school English classes normally are. However, as hard as her class is, I'm glad I took it. It has helped me out a lot from learning how to manage time to the many ways to study and what methods work best for me.

    Course highlights:

    This course has taught me how to manage my time, how to take quite but useful notes, and the best methods to study. My favorite part of this class was getting to act out a play. It was fun to do something hands-on and personally, it helps me to pick up on and learn the material better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't put your work off. There is a lot of it and you cant afford to do so. So, just get your work done as soon as you can, then you won't have to worry about it later. Never take extra credit for granted or lightly, you'll need as much as you can get.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was one of the few I have taken in high school that I feel has truly given me a college like experience.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to more deeply analyze literary works, mastered literary terms, and I am now able to churn out 3 essays in 90 minutes without issue.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up on your work and STUDY. Read the material and be ready to discuss it in class.
