    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Having this class really prepares you for college. The constant work keeps you on your toes your senior year which extremely important because you want to end your high school years strong and not barely making it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the graduation project. That project is something that I will never forget because of how tedious yet beneficial it was. In AP Lit I learned how to really break down any piece of literature and I improved my essay writing skills. I am grateful for my school offering this class to me and glad i took the initiative to take it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with your work!! Procrastination is your worst enemy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to all students because it gives you the feel of what an English course is going to feel like in college. You are given a lecture, and are expected to take your own form of "good notes" and based off those notes, as well as the lecture you were presented, you will have to conduct an 3-5 paper essay off that one topic.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was definitely the timed writings. With timed writings, you are given an prompt on a book or even just a small passage you have read throughout the year and are asked to conduct an essay with ALL parts of an essay on maybe how did the literary devices the author used within the text conveyed the theme or added meaning to the main idea of the passage. Not only did it make me more efficient in my writing, but my writing got better. I've realized the more you write, and seeing your failed attempts, the better you will be at writing or conducting a good essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are planing to take this course in the future, my best advice is to read when you are told to read! You will be given essay prompts on books that are going to be assigned throughout the year and in order to conduct an good essay , you have to read. Even when you are not told to read, read. It will build your vocabulary which will only benefit you.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are a great at comprehending reading passages, and doing public speaking interviews/presentations in class.

    Course highlights:

    In this course you learn how to engage in public speaking activities with classmates and understand how AP English assists with future goals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give is to come prepared to speak and give information to help support your classmates answers.
