    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The books that we read were very enlightening, which let to very provocative discussions in class. Also, the environment of the class was very intelligent.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about making connections between books and the world. Throughout the course, we read different books which we were then able to connect back to, and connect multiple books to either history or the modern day world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend this course, but you will have to be ready to do a lot of work outside of the classroom.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to students who are advanced readers. Students who don't like to read and are not advanced would have a lot of trouble passing this course. I would not recommend this class to students who do not have a lot of time to do homework. This course has a variety of difficult, long readings that can take up multiple nights and weekends. If you are a student who enjoys reading and has plenty of free time, AP English is for you! This course helped me understand poetry and higher level books that I had previously misinterpreted. I have gained a higher level of analysis capabilities, along with more advanced writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    There were a couple major highlights of this course. The first, was our unit on poetry. I had previously been misinterpreting the poetry that I had been reading. The unit we did on poetry blew my mind! I had been reading it all wrong. There are many different ways to interpret poetry, however, this course allowed me to learn the different ways and find which works best for me. Due to this unit, I now enjoy reading poetry at home. The other highlight was learning how to write proper essays. I didn't know that my writing skills were lacking prior to this course. Thankfully, I learned before going to college. This course taught me how to analyze text and write a rhetorical analysis. The satisfaction of getting a prompt and knowing that I can answer it thoroughly is amazing. The first time I wrote an analysis and nailed it was a highlight of this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If a student wanted to succeed in this course, they would have to do the reading. It is really that simple. Most students who don't pass the AP test and don't pass the class, do not do the required reading that was set by the teacher. This is a literature class and we have to write plenty of essays on the readings we are assigned. The students who read all of the assigned material are almost guaranteed to pass the class. Sometimes the readings are hard to understand. A great study tip would be to read a chapter and then go on Spark Notes. Spark Notes helps with a higher level understanding and analysis for most readings in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because, it's important for everyone to know how to write a paper properly.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I become proficient in writing, I also learned how to write research papers. The highlight of this course for me was when the teacher handed back a graded paper with an A+ on it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just stay focused. Think about what you want to write and make it happen. Don't forget to reread your papers before you pass them in. Have a peer read it over and give you feedback.
