    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    APLC has drastically helped improve my writing style and vocabulary. APLC also gave me incite into how a college level English course would be operated and the expectations of a college professor. By taking this course, APLC has given me the ability to work with a college level workload and understand a college level curriculum.

    Course highlights:

    I expanded my vocabulary and enhanced my writing and comprehension ability. I can now look at a text from the 1500's and fully understand what the author was intending to tell the audience and grasp the now perhaps forgotten writing styles. APLC also improved my ACT writing score improved from a 5, on a practice ACT, to a 9 on my official test.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you ever feel like the workload or curriculum is too much to handle, speak with your teacher. They know that this course is supposed to by challenging and will help you if you ask. My teacher was able to give me plenty of help on comprehension of old texts and taught me so much in 1 on 1 sessions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it helps you to develop higher analytical skills and widens your vocabulary. You read several books throughout the course and will often write an essay on the book or on two books that you've read that either contradict or are similar. The first essay you write in this class is about yourself and allows you to take a step back so you may analyze what has occurred in your life and the meaning of it. You can take this story in whatever way you may like as it is about yourself. The last essay you write in this class will be a research paper on the topic of your choice. You get more than enough time to complete these essays and the chance to revise them, allowing for added points, if you submitted the essay on time.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were reading different books, having discussion circles on them, and then writing an essay on the book. I learned how to "read between the lines" and understand the meaning of more difficult texts. I also learned how to better explain my ideas on the books through the discussion circles and essays. I learned what different types of writing is, rhetorical strategies and uses, and the ideas behind texts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are to take this course, I recommend already having experience and skills with reading harder texts and writing essays. I would also recommend rereading the texts if you don't understand it or use SparkNotes to help. However, I do not recommend using SparkNotes or any other similar website as a substitute for actually reading the book. You will need to spend some time studying rhetorical terms and strategies. It is also important that you have someone look over your essays before submitting them and if you're not happy with your score or wish to make it higher, do the essay revisions.
