    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a strong reader and writer, and love literature and are dedicated to the study of it, take the class! It's more rigorous than the regular English courses, but it's not difficult.

    Course highlights:

    We read books and poems from historic to modern times, which are woven together with a common theme, which is really interesting. So far we've covered classic American literature (i.e. "The Grapes of Wrath" and two independent summer reading books). The latest we've learned about is the Transcendentalism movement, and we're moving on to "The Scarlet Letter", which I love.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of assignments or you will fall behind; it's hard to catch up! Also, you should participate in this class a lot, to show your interest in the topics, and to motivate other students to share their thoughts as well, so the conversations flow.

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the work, or it will be hard to catch up. Try to participate as much as possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course because Mr. Flood made it one large, continuous conversation. It never felt like a normal classroom. Instead, it was just a group of individuals who cared about literacy and wanted to discuss literature.

    Course highlights:

    I learned new ways to choose topics to write about. I was never good at coming up with ideas to write essays on but Mr. Flood helped us look at books and articles in different ways to come up with theses. He helped me find ways to connect two seemingly unrelated books through character studies and similar themes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to look differently at works of literature. The books we read and analyze can seem daunting at times but are really spectacular works. I was never someone who enjoyed reading but as I turned the pages of The Great Gatsby or The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn I continued to find more reasons why they were American classics. I also advise that students participate as much as possible. It can only help
