    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is simply a lot of reading and thinking. One has to dig deeper into a piece of literature to do well in this class. This course also gives college credit while studying at a high school. Some of the novels may seem old fashioned, but the message behind them still rings true today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about analyzing texts. I also became quite familiar with timed writes and how to create an effective timed write essay. That s an important skill that one might need for future AP tests.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read the books that are given to you. You can not analyze something you did not read. Also watch the clock constantly during timed writes. Take notes over the books your reading. They will come in handy later.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a fun class, although you have to be prepared to do a lot of reading. Throughout the year, you will take several timed writes to improve your writing skills and prepare you for the AP test in the spring.

    Course highlights:

    I'm a horrible writer, but I think this class did help me improve my writing skills slightly. It also gave me a greater respect for classic novels, where usually I just read young adult books.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually read the books because spark notes won't be enough to fully understand the themes which are a big part of the timed writes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would take Lit over honors 10th Language Arts because you basically read the same things and you do the same amount of work so you might as well get college credit for it.

    Course highlights:

    You read Shakespeare and the main focus of the course is to prepare you for the AP exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class isn't hard as long as you actually read the books that are assigned to you and do well on the vocal quizzes! Those are easy points.
