    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. The classroom environment is very chill and relaxed. Ms. Hoffman doesn't give piles of homework every day. Instead, we read a couple of chapters every few days and answer some questions to show that we understand the material. The class is mostly about appreciating the plays and the books we read instead of just memorizing details and getting good grades.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the Philosophical one. We read "The Stranger" by Albert Camus and studied the philosophy of the book, as well as relate it to our own lives. I also remember enjoying a course in which we wrote our own stories, memoirs, and poems for a personal portfolio. During this unit, I feel like I learned a lot about my classmates. It was really just a fun and very open course in general.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students usually go into this course thinking it's going to be really easy. I would just give others the advice to actually read the books that are assigned. All of the books that we have read so far are really good ones: "The Stranger" and "Their Eyes Were Watching God" being two of my favorites. Also, the tests usually have really specific questions. So, I would recommend dedicated some time at home to read and fully comprehend the plays and the books instead of just reading a summary online.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    We discuss standard literature but also go into depth about what these novels and plays say about the time period and society, which makes the course not only more interesting but relatable.

    Course highlights:

    Reading the Stranger, By: Anthony Camus. the book was very complex as it discussed the idea of existentialism and absurdism but we were able to dissect the theories presented to further understand the author's purpose.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the books you were assigned, it'll give you further insight into the main ideas of the novels.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Colon is a very hard grader and does not play around. No, I wasn't the best student but he does not play around. He expects top quality.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to always try your best and put your best effort into everything.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO ALL OF YOUR HOMEWORK. AND ACTUALLY TRY TO GET A 100 ON THE ESSAYS.
