    AP Language and Composition is a great course for those who love to write and read great novels. There is a good amount of writing assignments throughout the course as well as a few novels that are read and tested.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you get to read great pieces of literature such as Candide, The Glass Menagerie, The Great Gatsby, and The Crucible while having a great teacher that knew how to engage his students through how he presented his material.

    Course highlights:

    Each quarter we worked on an author project. At the beginning of the year, we would choose an author that wrote American or English literature from around the late nineteenth century to the middle twentieth century to focus on. Then, we would read a new book by that author and create a project each quarter. It was really interesting reading different books and drawing connections about each while learning about the author.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I learned a lot of necessary writing skills that I could use in college. Mr. Filie taught us different approaches to how you can write argument essays which I found to be incredibly useful. Also, he is always there to help you especially when it comes time to take the AP exam.
