    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely rewarding and a mild challenge for those that are interested in why people do the things they do and the impact they have on those around them. The course studies humanities but mainly focuses on genocides throughout the 20th and 21st century.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the more widely known parts of genocide as well as the genocides that aren't listed faithfully in all our textbooks. In completion of this course, I was eligible to attend the trip to Washington, DC in March of 2016. The trip was definitely one of the most rewarding parts of the course as well as the dynamic classroom experience we had. From the course, we have expanded our studies outside of the classroom and adopted a club fpecifically for students interested in humanities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you aren't a fan of reading or find it challenging, have a difficult time following a schedule or fall behind easily, or if you aren't open-minded and respectful of sensitive material this may not be the class for you. This class to me was often discussion based and relied on participation as well as feedback. Putting additional hours of research and asking question will really help you succeed in this class. You will get what you put into this class and the rewards are definitely worth it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend AP English Language and Composition because it truly helps you grow in your communication skills through public speaking and vocabulary. Also, you learn a lot about how to rhetorically analyze non-fiction articles and express your arguments and synthesize sources efficiently and strongly.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much more English and grammar vocabulary than I knew ever existed. I feel this intense vocab was a lot at once, but it helped me grow as an AP English student. I am able to make at least somewhat sense of the difficult passages I am given on a multiple choice test or a writing prompt. I can often incorporate vocab I have learned into my assignments.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise all students who take this course to be ready for the tough load of work. It is not easy and it cannot get done in a short amount of time. You have to put in as much time, as the amount of things you are willing to learn. You must have dedication and self-motivation to get through this course. It is essential you do not procrastinate and fall behind on assignments because this class moves at a faster pace than any academic or honors class.
