    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it would prepare one for a college class experience ,this teacher is qualified and used to college students and the environment so she knows how to train students in high school to be college fit . The name of my professor could not be found on the list so I clicked the name of the English 3 AP teacher ,my professors name is Ms. Sandera Magee.

    Course highlights:

    I am still currently in this course ,but I know I have learned how to analyze essays better by having a strong thesis ,I know it may sound funny because people think writing an essay is not a big deal ,but it's not easy to get a 9 on the AP Exam.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need is to focus ,pay attention and never give up cause you fail one test ! ,failing is not the end of the world in an AP class it's just learning and you won't make the mistake again.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because although I thought English was my strongest subject, it was actually challenging and taught me lots of useful writing techniques. I enjoyed the year with the exception of the Cornell notes we were required to write for the assigned chapters to our classic novels. We always had great discussions and occasionally had group projects and even watched associated movies. This class actually combined learning and fun together, which is something not every teacher has mastered.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an expanded knowledge on the classic, gothic and tragedy-filled novels we read, along with an outline of the authors' life. We read many unforgettable books such as Frankenstein, Odepius Rex, Antigone, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and Gulliver's Travels. Each book had its own array of themes, motifs and symbols, which were then later tied into another assignment or essay. I learned more effective writing techniques and skills to help with the AP exam and I was confident that I would pass my test because I felt as if my teacher prepared me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on track with reading all chapters given for homework. Always take notes on major events, themes and characters because tests aren't multiple choice. Actively participate and listen to discussions because he might give a hint or two about what will be on the test. If you don't understand, don't be afraid to ask questions. When it comes to writing do your best, he will edit and return for corrections, if he sees you actually tried.
