    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    IB English is a vigorous but extremely beneficial course and if you're up for a challenge I advise you take it! Challenging yourself and stepping out of your comfort zone is not something many people are willing to do but trust me when I tell you, you won't regret it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the books we read. Students were exposed to various topics and real life problems we're currently facing. Some of the things I learned is how to write under pressure. Before this class, whenever standardized tests asked to write an essay, I would usually run out of time. After taking this course I learned how to effectively manage my time and set up my essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, try not to fall behind. This course provides you with an abundant amount of work and if you fall behind, you'll end up stressed because of the work that's piling up. Also, if you need guidance, never hesitate to ask your teacher. Teachers are meant to help you with whatever you need assistance on and if you don't feel comfortable asking your teacher, ask a peer!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The rigorous work and readings given in this course truly opens the views and appreciation in the world of literature. Not only that, it prepares students for the English courses that will be required to take in college.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights in the course was learning to color-mark poems to be able to get a better and more thoughtful meaning to each poem read. Also, another highlight would be reading The Handmaid's Tale, where it is interesting to learn how life would be in a Utopian world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice for students in this course would be to learn how to color-mark like it was a job and you were a professional at it. Color-marking distinguished specific details and structures that are hard to find in poems, and it helps create a deeper understanding and themes throughout the poem. Another piece of advice would be to take notes using sticky-notes and post them straight into your novel whenever reading any type of work. By doing this, when having to write analysis papers, it will be easy to refer back to these notes and write an A paper.
