    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language and Composition provides a new way of looking at things. Critical thinking is encouraged, and the course deviates from what is previously taught in middle school and high school courses, in which there is only one "right way" to do things. The class is free-flowing and provides plenty of opportunity to provide your own insights on topics and hear the fresh perspectives of others. The class runs at a faster pace than other high school courses may, however it is definitely worth it if you are looking for a challenge and college credits.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight of this course was the weekly Socratic seminars that the class had. We would read texts assigned by the teacher, and then each person would get the opportunity to give their input on what they felt the author's purpose was, and to analyze what literary techniques were used to get the writer's point across. Hand-raising was not a choice during Socratic seminars, and consequently, the conversations felt less forced than they otherwise might have. I learned that my ideas and interpretations may differ from others, but that two seemingly contrasting ideas can both be correct at the same time. That, I feel, was the biggest and most important lesson that this course taught me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You get out of this course what you put into it. At times, it can feel overwhelming, but if you create a plan for yourself for time management, you'll be absolutely fine. The biggest difficulty in this course is not the actual content, but whether you can prioritize what needs to get done and when. If you keep yourself from procrastinating and stay on top of due dates, the stress in the class will be minimal. This class is only as hard as you make it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is amazing! I have learned so much about writing and I have become a better student as a result of this class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are actually being in the class. Mrs. Cangelosi is so funny and makes reading plays fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT TAKE THE COURSE IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO PUT THE WORK IN. The class is alot of work and you will fail if you do not do it. However, you will never fail if you do the work. Mrs. Cangelosi is always there to help you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English is not difficult, well to me it isn't. As long as you pay close attention to details and find deeper meanings in passages, you should do well.

    Course highlights:

    I really learned how to analyze deeper meanings in different texts, like Hamlet and Oedipus. Everything has a meaning; you just need to find it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need to do is pay close attention and take a lot of notes. Everything should add up in the end.
