    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a college level English course. You learn a lot about how to correctly write an essay and how to use rhetorics. This can become quite useful when in college.

    Course highlights:

    The main components of this course included the learning and usage of rhetorics, the study of 20th century novels, including the Great Gatsby and the Jungle, and how to effectively write an essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When studying the rhetorics, use quizlet. The terms are all on quizlet and are easy to study with the quizes and games on there. When reading the 20th century novels, take notes on the main theme of the story. Make sure you write down any symbolism you notice. When writing your essays, make sure you don't procrastinate. You need to start as soon as you know what your assignment is and ask the teacher for any help or advice.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because there is so much to learn about, while having fun with it. It isn't just reading poems and finding what literary devices they use. It's talking about what you see and how it makes you feel. You read Shakespeare and begin to understand what they are saying so much better.

    Course highlights:

    Shakespeare, I learned a lot about his writing style and his plays. Poems and the many authors I looked into and learning about their life stories.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to be willing to put in enough time to properly write an essay and read books outside of class. If you don't like either of those things, then do not take it.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course definitely encourages students to think outside the box and dig deeper into the meaning of literature. I would recommend taking this course if you want to challenge yourself and further prepare yourself for college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being exposed to so many different styles of writing and genres of literature. I discovered several new novels and poems and also learned a lot of new vocabulary.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would start by making sure that you're ready for the workload before you take the course. If you're the kind of person who doesn't like writing essays or going beyond surface level analysis, I would tell you to not take it. If you do take the class, just work really hard and think outside the box.
