    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It gives college credits for a 4 or a 5 on the exam as well as opens the student's eyes to seeing important rhetoric crucial to high level literature. I also just enjoyed free writing and being my own author.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was reading "The Boys in the Boat", which is the story of the unlikely Olympic Gold rowing team of Washington State in the 20th Century. Also the project we did on the book was very interpretive which I liked.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you haven't gotten an A in all of your other Honors English Courses, you should defer this class to college and finish your foundation of English throughout High School.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had an excellent teacher. I feel that she prepared me not only for the AP exam, but for some real life situations as well. The course itself can be hard to get through as it includes a lot of textbook learning and not much reading or literature to break it up. At times it can be incredibly boring, but it is all useful information. My teacher used interactive projects and interesting teaching techniques instead of only using the textbook.

    Course highlights:

    A main focus of AP Lang is rhetoric and how it is used, so one of my favorite projects was identifying rhetoric used in Superbowl commercials. We were to pay extra attention to rhetoric used in the ads of the Superbowl and analyze their effectiveness and appeal to viewers. It was a fun project and made it easy for us to analyze a major topic without getting distracted or bored.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is definitely a beneficial course to take. I would recommend taking this course before an AP Literature class. Lang was a good introduction to AP style courses and it has helped me with test taking strategies in my other courses.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You get to explore literary elements such as a work’s structure, style and theme, as well as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism ,tone and a whole lot more!. You also get to develop your writing skills as you express your ideas and analysis in expository, analytical, and argumentative essays.

    Course highlights:

    The Highlights of taking this course were writing numerous amount of essays weekly and submitting my teacher and also thoroughly going over the AP English packet. The more essays you write/practice how to write, the more better off you would be during the AP test if applicable for you. Also as time goes by during the course, individuals should be expected to develop critical thinking and analytical skills from the numerous practice essays required of them to write during this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study and go over your AP packets at least for 30 minutes a day throughout the year and I promise you, you will definitely pass the AP exam if you plan on taking it.More so, make sure you develop and/or try to think as critical as possible when taking this course.The expository and argumentative essays are going to require a lot of critical thinking backed up by facts to prove them, trust me.Other than that, I highly recommend and wish you all the best out there!Also If you plan on taking the test, time yourself and take as many practice test as possible! I cannot emphasize this enough!
