    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Sometimes I felt that class time was not used productively. I also thought that we were rushed on reading books and did it independently so we never discussed as a group the deeper meanings of the texts, which is a key part of the course.

    Course highlights:

    Exposure to great literature, a "family-like" environment, and a great teacher were highlights from this course. I learned a lot about analyzing and explicating poetry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate! Do know try to get by using sparknotes and other internet sources because your grade will suffer and Mrs. Garrison will know.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it changes your understanding of the English Language completely. It dares you to fail through analyzing the thesis of a text, and forces you to notice words and strategies you would've overlooked before by acknowledging how they build up that course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were all the discussions we did about Gatsby, as they completely revealed to us the importance of language to develop a major theme like the one in Gatsby.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write a lot on your own. Read a lot on your own. And practice dissecting passages and paragraphs on your own time

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because it helps you explore different areas of interest in literature. This course allows you to go out of your comfort zone and write pieces on all different topics. You analyze other AP level students in the same course and it allows you to get to know your classmates on a deeper/intellectual level.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this course. I gained a lot of knowledge in my writing skills and my reading level. I learned beyond just english through this course. I learned what hard work meant. I learned the challenged of my grad paper. I learned what it felt like to be exhausted. I learned what stress was. Your probably thinking why would I want any of that it sounds awful? Throughout life you will experience a lot of struggles. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The difference is, this was a good struggle. It taught me a life lesson.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be prepared to work hard. There will be times you just don't want to do your work. You might feel like its pointless and you wont loose anything out of it if you don't do it. DO YOUR WORK. Whatever happens, you have to do your work. I promise it will all help and be worth it in the end.
