    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to other students. Mr. Egashira is a very unconventional and passionate teacher. The work load is not difficult but tedious. Mr. Egashira likes to compare himself to Mr. Miyagi from "The Karate Kid" and describes the work he gives us as "wax on, wax off." The primary focus of the class is to pass the upcoming AP Literature exam, but through practice exams and reading classic novels, one learns life lessons as well as practical exam tactics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course has to be the novels we read. Mr. Egashira has a way of making the most boring and impossible books a joy to read. Every book read in his class is read thoroughly and every motif and literary device is highlighted and disused. Being an inner-city African-American female, I fit the classic stereotype of hating the novels of authors like George Orwell and Shakespeare. Fortunately, the professor made it his business to change that. I absolutely love Shakespeare's "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" now. I realized that I can relate to them immensely since I have also experienced "young love" (which is one of the major themes) though not on such a dramatic scale. I actually understand the Shakespearean language and could catch the sexual innuendos as well as chuckle at the double-entendres. I credit that all to taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, one thing you must not do is procrastinate. You will regret it. Also, always come to class on time. The professor's favorite phrase is "It's easier to be early than to be right on time." Additionally, some great study tips are to always study in groups. Never cram, and always pay attention to the specifics in a reading, such as an important date or name.
