    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it was more than just the average English class in which books are just read and discussed. We read different levels of literature and did projects on each of the books to help better understand more than just discussing the characters, themes, etc. The teacher that I had also made the class very enjoyable and a great learning experience by not only having us focus on literary works but also current events which we would then debate.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite units that we did was a "modern novel" unit in which we were put into groups based on a genre of book that we would like to read. We compiled a portfolio of different projects and presented them to the class. This was very interesting because we were able to compare and contrast these more modern novels to classics and other famous works. From taking this course I learned to appreciate different forms and styles of writing. In this course we read a compilation of plays, memoirs, fiction, and poetry and by reading these works, it taught me how to analyze and interpret what the themes, syntax, and mood are in different styles of writing. We also did a research project that was done throughout the semester, and that taught me how to write a formal essay and paper because we had to use certain college outlines.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, the incoming students should stay on top of the reading that is required. In order to partake in the projects and writing assignments it makes it a lot easier to participate when you know what's going on in the assigned book. Another way to succeed is to ask questions. For me I struggled with my writing whether it was a fictional work or formal essay and my teacher really showed me how to transition my thoughts into my written works.

    I learned to like classic novels that I never would've even considered reading.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Do your best and pay attention. Make sure to actually read the books that are assigned and don't slack off.
