Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
I feel prepared for college because of taking honors English IV with Mr. Jones. I have learned more in this course than in my previous English classes and we have gone in depth in all material, including but not limited to, Anglo-Saxon literature, folk epics, medieval literature, ballads, Dante's Inferno, Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, and A Doll House.
I enjoyed reading and discussing the Inferno the most. It is such a complex work and it causes you to think deeply on the old political and church views during that time. I also enjoyed the ballad "Get Up And Bar The Door". We also studied grammar rules in depth and wrote numerous essays on various topics. My English ACT subscore has increased 3 points after only a semester of this course.

Advice for students:
Study and do every bit of the work. It will be difficult, but the course is so rewarding when followed through. Spend time on your essays and use your Harbrace to proofread them. Read the material itself, not the sparknotes, and study constantly.
