    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher is they friendly, creative, and I'll always remember the activities and books I read.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing I learned was being able to express myself and better my quality of writing, but also how to express my opinions in life. The books we read were always interesting, and have very powerful lessons and themes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your homework, it will help you better your writing and prepare you for the AP Exam. Take advantage of peer editing, and conferences with the teacher. Make sure to annotate, and read thoroughly.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because I learned how to dissect a book or article and find the hidden meaning behind the author's choice of words and their tone. Because of this, I am no longer just reading the text. I am seeing the world the author has created through their eyes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how an author's style of writing and choice of words contribute to the message they are trying to convert. For example, in "Angela's Ashes", the author doesn't use quotation marks and other forms of punctuation, save for periods. We learned that the reason for this was that this true story was probably so difficult for the author that he didn't want to bother with quotations. He just wanted to tell the story and be done with it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should definitely annotate the books that you read. And not just a side thought here and there. Take time to actually READ the text and see what the author is trying to tell you. Your annotations will come in handy later if you ever need to go back to find a specific example during a class discussion.
