    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Carlton has high expectations and really pushes you to achieve the mastery of the skills needed for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    There is a great deal of reading and analysis. We looked at the reading in a lot of detail and focused on how the author's choices added to the tone, theme, etc. Some of the reading selections I found very interesting; they definitely portrayed a wide variety of perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for a heavy workload, and don't procrastinate the reading. If you plan to do a little each night you will probably enjoy it and retain it much better.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this as an AP course my junior year. I loved the analysis of the written language and the way that Mr. Mitchell transformed our writing. In this course we would pick out author's rhetorical devices, connect topics to our every day lives, and argue for sides that we were passionate about. Through this course, you begin to master how to form strong argumentative, synthesis and rhetorical analysis essays and grow confidence in your handle on the English Language.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the creative writing essays and the fact that Mr. Mitchell also spent time discussing current event topics or personal topics that we could relate to and/or get out in the open. This course to me was not only English, but also Philosophy. I feel as if it strongly benefits every student to be in a course where you can let yourself go in your writing and have a place to feel comfortable and relieve any stresses in your life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest writing as much as possible. The more you write, the better you get. The old saying that practice is perfect is more true than you'd think. Also go in with an open mind. Some people will have opinions you do not agree with. Some do not enjoy the way Mr. Mitchell strays away from regular teaching of English at some points. Take the time to enjoy the course and go along with the flow of it.
