    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This classroom is fun, creative, and relaxing. Mrs. Talbot is willing to let her students take control over their poems, and let them present their poems to the class for a bonus five points.

    Course highlights:

    Slam poetry was the most interesting topic we learned in Poetry, the poems had to be passionate and emotional, as well as about personal experience and not about pretty birds in trees like other poems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mrs. Talbot is a great teacher, but she can also be quite mean if you become disrespectful. As long as as you listen when she wants you to listen and do your work, she will be her normal funny and sarcastic self, so just behave.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking AP Literature because it is an extremely fulfilling experience that expands your knowledge of literature but as well as real world affairs in unique perspectives that can't be offered in any other course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely by far the group projects. Not only did you complete the assignment in a more profound and thoughtful way but you also fostered strong relationships with the other students participating in the assignments.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students that are potentially applying for this course to complete the reading on time. One of the many ways that the course encourages collaborative learning is through group discussions, usually through the material in the question. Reading the material is essential to obtaining a greater understanding of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would rate this course 10/10! Take it! Although the work load is a bit heavy and challenging, there is no class that is more rewarding than this one. It will definitely prepare you for college.

    Course highlights:

    What didn't we learn? We learned all about Voltaire, Margaret Atwood, Oscar Wilde, and very influential authors that have made a large impact on the Romantic and Victorian eras.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Acquire a passion for poetry. This class is filled with excerpts from multiple authors and poets who write because they love it. Without a love for the arts, this class will be a bit challenging, but nevertheless, very rewarding.
