    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Gealy is a great teacher and in my opinion it is beneficial to read some of the big name books with classroom assignments to go along with it. I remember reading Slaughterhouse Five in class and without talking through it in class it would have been very difficult to figure out what was going on in that book.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I gained from this course was work ethic. Most of the classes before this one I was able to get through them without having to put a lot of effort into it. With this class I feel like it does a good job in getting you ready for the hard classes where you will have to sit down and really focus on what you are doing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking to give yourself a challenge and if your interested in reading the classic books of Shakespeare and other famous authors like him I suggest you take this class. There is a lot of assignments and a few projects thrown in their so if you can handle that it is a good class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it will greatly prepare and give the student an idea of what a college course may be like. It challenges you to think in a way that you aren't use to thinking, and aids you in picking apart literature and discovering the true meaning of language arts.

    Course highlights:

    The most important things I learned is how to dissect key points when reading literature and how to construct an analytical essay through quotations and important explorations in the texts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, reading all material is necessary and out of the box thinking is what will drive you to success.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoy this class very much. I feel as though I have gained a new respect for classic literature. I would recommend this class to anyone who likes to read or wants to be academically challenged in school. The teacher is wonderful and is willing to help all his students.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained a new respect for myself and classical literature. I think the highlights of this course are the books we read and the projects that go with the readings. I feel as though I have learned much from just doing the projects. I have learned that when you read a book you should look for the what and the how.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend you read the books and take notes. I also recommend that you take notes over what the teacher is saying. Outline key ideas you see come up in the readings and make outline drafts for essays that are coming up.
