    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    (It's AP Literature and Composition that I'm talking about, I couldn't find the right one). This course basically forces the student to become a better writer by dint of trial and error, and practice. The art of rhetorical writing- and the analysis of it- is fascinating once you get down to the inner workings of it. This is what AP Lit does- it bares the bones of writing and lets you examine them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write convincingly, I learned how to adapt my writing voice for multiple different purposes, I learned how to form a relevant thesis and prove it with textual evidence, I learned how to write competent and coherent essays in a short period of time, and most importantly I learned how to think critically about a text. The discussion-based nature of this class taught me how to really pick apart a peice of writing and take everything out of it that you possibly can.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be prepared to do the work and the reading, and you need to think hard about every assignment you turn in as well as considering what you say in the class discussions. You also need to learn from all your mistakes in your writing. Your grades on essays will only get worse along the course of the year if you don't show growth and improvement. You can't stick to the same writing mold or your teacher will get frustrated, and start grading harder and harder. The point of this course is to improve your writing, which means you must show growth.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it exposes high school juniors and seniors to what college English courses will be like, and helps them break away from the traditional five paragraph essay format that most teachers love and enforce.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained a greater confidence in my writing ability because this course helps students explore different rhetorical modes, such as classification and division and definition. The highlights of this course were learning about these different styles of writing and developing a deeper understanding of literary and rhetorical analysis of nonfiction and fiction texts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell future students taking this course to make sure that they are willing to take a step outside their comfort zones because this course strips away all of the previous knowledge of five paragraph essays that most students are taught in late middle school to early high school years.
