    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Going into the class i expected the course to be a cake subject. That I would be able to, as my ENGLISH AP 3 Language and Composition teacher would say, blow smoke. However, my first day of the class changed my mind. I realized AP Lit meant a tremendous amount of reading and non stop characterization. Everyday we discuss what new plot twist has occurred in our novel and break down passages and poems. Mrs. Costisick really engages her students into the books that would seem otherwise boring. Her teachings give us each a lens to see the book from an opposing perspective that enables us as students to see a novel such as Kate Chopin's novel "The Awakening" more than just a book about an emotional promiscuous wife.

    Course highlights:

    Through opting to take the year long AP English I have been able to grow as not only a student, but also a person. I've learned that procrastination kills grades, that there's always another perspective, and most importantly to never judge a book/person by his/her cover.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course stay on top of your weekly blogs and never get behind, they help more than you know. But most importantly, for all you slackers: actually read the book!! Spark notes do not help on her quizzes and class discussion isn't until after you take the test!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course brought out my creative side and helped me to become a better writer. This course allowed me to understand more in depth a writer's reason for how and why they wrote something. I enjoyed the classroom environment because everyone actually wanted to learn and better themselves as writers.

    Course highlights:

    What I enjoyed most about this course, is reading all the different times of poetry. I learned in this course was that just because something is written down on a piece of paper, doesn't necessarily mean what is on the paper. I learned that you have to pull apart the piece by using different techniques.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you will have to learn a short hand way of writing notes. There are many elements in this course, and if you were to sit down and write everything you see word for word, you would never have enough time to study. I learned that the easiest way to study is by going home every night and rewriting the notes I took in class that day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is very thorough is her explanations. And no matter who you are, you would be able to understand the different types of literature and the history of it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned different types of literature, around what time authors started to write using the kinds of literature, and the life and beliefs of these authors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students to write the notes and engage in the reviews.
