    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because Mr.Maite really pushes you to be you best. He is very blunt, but loves his job and really knows how to make you a better writer. I have learned a lot from his class and can't wait to learn more as the year goes on.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights from this class was doing a video assignment on a short story we had to each individually pick and read outside of class. This assignment was by yourself, which really pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me truly understand the literature since no one else in my class read the story to help me. It was also very fun, because we had to dress up and completely make our own script and then show it in front of the whole class. It was a fun day watching everybody's short movies

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to have good study habits and motivation. There are some weeks where you're assigned 3 projects in one week or 2 books at the same time and it's hard to stay on top of if you procrastinate. Just do everything on time and don't be afraid to ask for help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class and this teacher because overall you learn so much. Mr. Maite teaches you in a way you understand and the class allows you to do deeper into the world of literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read and grow your vocabulary or you will struggle.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class has taught me more than any other class I've taken. Not only do we analyze literature deeper than I could have ever imagined, but we learn about how to apply our knowledge to the world around us. Our teacher, Mr. Maite, is the perfect person to teach this course. He is endlessly passionate about literature and our world, and can teach even the most English-hating student to love Shakespeare as much as an English professor.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing we've done is our study of "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by James Joyce. The book was difficult and the assignments that went along with it were very time-consuming and took a lot of effort, but it was all worth it. Our discussions and analyses were endlessly fascinating. I could have sat and discussed it with my class and teacher all day. I learned to look deeply into everything; this book is a great example of how our world has endless layers of complexity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open-minded. This class does not skim the surface; you will go deep into heavy topics such as existentialism, theism, temptation and the Devil, etc. The workload will be difficult at times, but it's all completely worth it. If you go into class willing to learn something new, you will be rewarded with an endless amount of knowledge. Be open to learning to think in a completely new way, or set of ways. You will leave with the an understanding of the world that few classes can teach.
