    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Hyten is amazing! She makes dual credit an easy transition and allows you to explore ideas that regular high school English courses refuse. I loved out discussion circles! Most English classes have one opinion that they want you to agree to, but Mrs. Hyten encourages all opinions as long as you have a reason to back it up.

    Course highlights:

    The short story unit was on of my favorites because we were allowed a wide range of stories to view, they made you think and wonder the meaning behind all the details. I learned to step out of my box and to explore the small 'what if' ideas in my head.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's not easy, it does require you to try and it is not a blow off class. However, I would say it's far better than any level or pre-ap class. This class is about you and how you feel towards a piece of work. It may worry you when Mrs. Hyten tells you to use your best judgment when you ask about essays, but you learn to love it! Go with it, and be creative!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course only to the students that strive to challenge themselves. This course is designed to challenge these students to expand their abilities in comprehending literature. This course compels them to think outside of their own box and empowers them to relate more to the text that lies in the pages of a novel.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think outside of the box that I created myself. I was encouraged to read the text not as just words, but as meaning and life lessons.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't confine yourself to follow what you know best. Don't just analyze the literature presented to you, but to also understand it on a higher-level. Understand that these words are not just words, but life meanings and lessons that you should take with you. If you make an effort to truly understand that, you will not only make an excellent grade, but you will take more from this course than just an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is such an amazing class where you are able to explore your artistic abilities while interpreting them with the novel you were reading. I loved how open minded our teacher was about grading our projects and it just showed that she was accepting every unique style that everyone put into their project. Also with our writing, she critiqued us and hosted a class discussion before we wrote our papers so we would get a better insight from our peers.

    Course highlights:

    The projects were actually fun to do and there was a purpose for them. I learned to do what I love and use that to tie into the projects. It not only helped me learn more about the book, but also helped me grow in my creativity and thoughts because I was exercising them everday in this class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Allow yourself to be open minded and try to look at literature a different way while you are in this class. My horizons have expanded with my writing and I am loving english more and more each day because I gave this class my all while also experiencing with different ways to express myself in writings.
