    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course examines a broad range of material, focusing on how diction and literary devices impact how the work is perceived by the reader. By the end of the year you will be expected to identify these devices in a thoughtful, timed essay (~45 minutes) in preparation for the AP exam; this may sound difficult, but the pace of the course is such that you'll feel challenged but never stressed or harried, and can focus on enjoying the reading.

    Course highlights:

    Whether you're a born bibliophile or more of a math person, this course will foster a real and lasting love of literature; Mrs. Lankford deftly connects the material to current events and past works with which her students will be familiar from other courses, and is always open to any feedback or suggestions for other work to examine. By the end of the year, you will be reading literature like a professor!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the required reading: this course is not about the content of the literature, but rather how the style of the author impacts his or her message. Feedback on essays-- both from classmates and the teacher-- will prove invaluable in crafting well-written, expressive college essays.
