Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was an advanced placement course that was both a challenge but also extremely interesting and fun. It challenged both your writing and analysis skills. You have to pick apart a text, poem or novel and go into depth with it. It was a lot of fun reading a variety of work and being able to speak on it. For every work there is a hidden meaning that was exciting to uncover. As my teacher taught us to search for the "whisper" of every thing.
The highlights of this course was reading different types of literature. It was interesting because you get different styles and it never gets boring. You learn how to really understand the meaning of what the writer is trying to say. Works that may not have seemed meaningful become so much more in this course. You learn so much and eventually it becomes a second nature to spot out figurative language and understand it.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course you have to read a lot. However its not the reading that is difficult it is the annotation. It is crucial to annotate everything. If you don't you can miss key point in the text. It also makes it easier for you to remember and go back to the text to speak on certain parts. It helps with essay writing. Also always be organized and have an outline for your essay with key points to each paragraph. It cuts the time of writing and it makes it seem less stressful.
