    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course to anyone who is willing to write and push themselves into higher levels of high school English. Mr. Mulcahy was perhaps one of the best English teachers I've ever had. He put a lot of focus on writing skills and famous literature. Not only did he present the famous literature but also gave context to the works we studied and the background of the authors. This made for an excellent learning environment for an English class.

    Course highlights:

    Our classroom discussions were often intriguing despite the actual material that was taught. It seems quite difficult to find an interesting way to teach English literature, but he made it work! The other part of the course I liked a lot was the writing process which incorporated peer editing and teacher-student conferences. These conferences lent much perspective into ways of writing and how to personally improve my own writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to take notes, as they will be crucial on tests. Make sure you spend your time wisely during peer editing sessions and make the most of your one or two conferences with Mr. Mulcahy. If you consider these points, you will do just fine.
