    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the intensity. It is a class that is admittedly hard. We read hard text and are asked to dissect it with precision. That being said, the class was still very interesting and fun.

    Course highlights:

    We have read many books throughout this class; some of which were great and others which were lackluster. I personally enjoyed reading and evaluating the novel: Their Eyes Were Watching God. This story was told in a way that criticized society subtly, while remaining interesting. From reading this book, I have learned to look at text in a deeper way as opposed to reading something at face value.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend taking a lot of notes. This class would be extremely difficult if you didn't recall what was going on—notes help you keep track of everything. I also recommend putting in plenty of time outside of class, if you don't it will be impossible to keep up with the workload.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking AP Literature and Composition is a fantastic idea. This is the class you appreciate most after you have taken it, because the majority of the lessons are so gradual and subtle, you don't realize you have learned them until you discover the skills you acquired. And these skills are applicable to countless other classes you will take in the future, whether they employ writing, analytical reading, discussion, or group collaboration.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, before this course I couldn't tell prose from poetry, stanza from meter, and theme from motif. But with encouraged out-of-the-box thinking, energetic discussion, and Mr. Williams' true passion for the subject, it becomes more than just a class. It seeps into your everyday life, helps you break down and understand human emotion and comprehend the world around you. I highly recommend this class: it taught me how to read, analyze, and understand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This won't be news to anyone, but English courses are fundamentally about reading, writing, and speaking, and these are essential. Read the assigned material. Do the exercises and homework. Speak in class. Voice your thoughts and ideas, and listen to others' too. Doing these things will give you the complete experience, and teach you more about literature than you can imagine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mr. Williams challenges his students to see the world in new ways and not simply assume their worldview is correct.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning how to critically read and analyze different literary works. The amount of symbolism and meaning that author's put into their stories when writing is stupendous and learning to figure out and understand these "hidden meanings" is a rewarding, though difficult to obtain, skill.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you must be a student who enjoys reading and writing. Make sure to read the books! Some people might tell you that you can get by without doing this but by reading and analyzing the different books and poems throughout the course of the semester, you are practicing and preparing yourself for the AP Exam. If you do not read the books and do the homework, then it is like going up to bat against a major league pitcher without practicing at all beforehand.
