    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. The lessons and books you read you will carry with you your whole life. You'll read many classics that are important in college and any literary discussion as well as be knowledgable in how to analyze these difficult texts.

    Course highlights:

    The poetry project in third quarter; though difficult, you truly take a lot away from the project and are well prepared to analyze any poem. I learned various techniques poets used to achieve a desired effect as well as how to interpret those poems correctly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and write. A lot.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    (I attend Lake Norman Charter High School in Huntersville, NC). I would recommend this course because it teaches properly how to analyze and interpret critically claimed literature from classic to relatively modern. In addition, the course focuses on the themes present in the literary works and how they are representative of the human experience. The course helps to show how literature impacts and can provide an objective commentary on human nature.

    Course highlights:

    This course helped me to analyze literature, especially poetry, far better than I had ever before. I was able to take my newfound knowledge of poetry and display it in a well composed essay. The class allowed me to read and dissect famous works from Shakespeare to Toni Morrisson, making me a well-read student.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    When out of class reading is assigned, it is very important to keep on top of your reading and annotations. When it comes to writing essays, become familiar with the AP grading guidelines and try to incorporate those requirements into your writing to earn the best score you possibly can.
