    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for students who are ready to do some heavy reading outside of class! In Ms. Chapman's class, we chose books we felt were most interesting to us from a list she compiled every six weeks to read, after which we would have spoken discussion or written question tests based on the book. This was a really enjoyable experience on top of a learning opportunity because the selections contained vocabulary words and real-world problems, plus literary themes and devices to be analyzed and annotated. Plus, Ms. Chapman is excellent at teaching the literary devices in this course! Whenever I had problems with a text I would go to tutoring to discuss them with her, and she had a different approach to understanding.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were group discussions about our books at the end of the reading period. It could get kind of hectic scheduling discussions with her, as they couldn't all be covered in the allotted time during class periods so students had to get together in groups and pick a date. But the discussions themselves were very helpful and exciting in that you could get multiple different perspectives on areas of the book, and garner greater understanding of its deeper subtextual meanings.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait until last minute to understand a device, study for vocabulary tests or to read your assigned book. Also, take every opportunity to practice your essay writing skills and to strengthen your reading test pace! It will help both with your reading comprehension and persuasive/expository skills, as well as boosting your test scores for when you apply to college.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Lindsey is a great teacher and prepares you for college without severely stressing you out with homework. He prepared me to take the AP LIT test and I feel like I was over prepared thanks to him.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly annotate. His witty personality and organization allowed the class to flow smoothly. It's easier to be prepared for class if you already know what you will be doing that day.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    D your reading and annotate your books! Don't forget to soak up as much knowledge as you can.
