    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this course in high school has prepared me well for college. I feel stronger going into college with this under my belt. I would recommend this course to all high school students.

    In this course you will learn how to write three different types of essay and answer a wide variety of multiple choice based on passages. These essays will to the exact kind you see in college.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to the student that was ready to work and able to dedicate a large amount of time to this class. It was both challenging and intriguing. The books we read, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Heart of Darkness, and Wuthering Heights, were all great reads and Mr. Walpole went in depth in our analysis of each so as to better our understanding. However he didn't simply lecture us. He taught us analytical techniques and allowed us to dive into the text ourselves. Though the course was challenging, it was ultimately rewarding to see how much I grew throughout the course.

    Course highlights:

    We often had class discussions about text we read, our own interpretations, and techniques used by the author. These discussions not only helped me to better comprehend the material, it prepared me for the exam and taught me skills I will use in college English courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to be prepared for a lot of writing assignments, reading almost every night, and tough discussion questions. I would also tell them to stick it out, because I believe I came out of the course a more developed individual and a better critical thinker.
