    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very hard and challenging, but I feel like if you try super hard it can be really helpful for other classes in high school or college. It builds a good foundation for the rest of you education.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to dissect the plot of a book and figure out why an author writes the book the way they did.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend a lot of time planning for what you want to say in a paper. Once you know what you are trying to say, the writing becomes so much easier.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much by taking an AP Language class. I learned to pick out writing styles and that often times authors have a deeper meaning that what is just written in words. Most importantly I learned how to love to read!

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course I learned a lot about self discipline and how to be wise with my time. I learned that this class would require more time and effort because it is a college class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, and read thoroughly. Get involved and participate with group discussions. Learn from your piers.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because it not only prepared me for writing in college, but it also taught me life lessons every high school student needs to learn; like how to work with a diverse group of personalities and students, how to be kind and thoughtful of others, and obviously how to interpret and read vast sources of writing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course were the people, including the teacher. Most high school students lean towards their understood group of peers, but in this course, our teacher taught us to explore different things, even if it meant being uncomfortable. From this, I learned numerous things I would've never of learned other wise. From these diverse group of people, I learned to expect the unexpected and never be afraid of change (while learning about literature, of course.)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you need to listen. It's crucial. You need to understand other people have ideas and perspectives that may challenge yours. I promise, it's a good thing. Learning from not only the teacher, but the other people in the class is an experience you will never forget nor regret.
