    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.
