    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course simply because it seemed like a lot of busy work. I took the AP exam a week ago and I did not feel that the class adequately prepared me. We wrote a lot of essays which was good but it was not really oriented for the real world. Other than that, I feel like the course was interesting but it could have been planned a lot better and been way more involved in learning literature. Instead, we just tossed out another book and another essay every other week.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some about essay writing because she graded really harshly. I wish I learned more about writing and how it relates to the real world, but I still learned how to analyze literature fairly well. I learned how to focus on the theme of works and use those to fully comprehend what I was reading.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work and pay attention in class because if you get behind in the small work it will be really difficult, since there is a lot of small assignments in pair with the larger assignments. There is also the reading, which is very important to keep up with because you will have weekly seminars and constant class discussions, so it is very important to keep up with the books.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    While the teacher was fairly blunt and harsh, The subject matter is fairly intuitive and vital for deeper thinking. Students often face the difficult task of a lack of understanding as far as textual learning. This course dives deep in the various double entendre and symbolism that lies within liferature.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the analysis of Shakespearean literature. As many people know this language is fairly difficult to understand. Through this course we covered a variety of the literature that was written by Shakespeare in order to get a better standing of its purpose and meaning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely tell an incoming student to analyze the text that is presented to them and immerse themselves in the text to fully gain a sense of development in the course.
