    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In English 12 I have learned a lot about British literature. I have enjoyed learning about the Victorian era and can't wait to learn about the Romantic era.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about the Victorian Era. I loved the novels and poems we read. Frankenstein by Mary Shelly was a grand book. I learned the background on the Victorian Era and what type of technological advances were made. I learned about the literature from this time and how many writers used a Gothic style of writing and that most females, such as Shelly, did not come out as the authors they were; simply because they were afraid of not making a profit.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice i would give is that you should pay attention, and keep up with your notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course! In previous years, we haven't really talked about poetry and in this class we are getting a more in depth look at why people write poems and how to analyze them to find the speakers meaning.

    Course highlights:

    We have group discussions that really allow us to take a look at other people's points of view and then talk about why they saw it that was. Poetry is not something that most lower grade classes cover, but in this class we do. You read a poem, annotate it, talk about it and sometime we even write papers on them to talk about what the author did well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for a lot of poems with words that aren't always familiar. Use note cards for those terms that you aren't sure about, it would be the difference between an A and a B. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions. The teacher is there to help you and to explain things in a different way that might make it easier for you to understand.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course prepares you for college English courses. On top of that, Mrs. Ruddy prepares you for the AP testing in the spring. Those who took the testing this year felt extremely prepared and confident in their writing abilities.

    Course highlights:

    This course is 100 percent nonfiction. It focuses on the the writing techniques of authors such as their usage of appeals and their diction. At the beginning of the year, I had no idea what appeals and diction really was, at the end, I can write a rhetorical analysis on any essay you sit in from of me. At first I was intimidated, however, Mrs. Ruddy walks you through with just enough guidance that you don't feel totally lost, but at the same time you don't feel like you are too restricted as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to be willing to write and read without having someone there constantly on you to get it done. You also have to be willing to put in time outside of classroom. The hours a weak I spent is not adding in time in the classroom.
