    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who loves reading as much as I do. Or in fact, as much as the teacher does. Nothing is better than having a teacher who carries a high passion for the subject being taught. Odds are, if the teacher is excited, you will be too.

    Course highlights:

    Having the group discussions was very important to the assignment we were working on. It let everyone share their view of the novel or play and open other's minds to it as well. Then having feedback on helped to improve your work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to plan your time wisely. The work can be fun if you actually do it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is the class material taught beneficial, but the way it is taught is what makes the class work for the student. You could have the most interesting topic, yet be bored by it based on the way it is presented to you.

    Course highlights:

    Having group discussions on the projects we are working on, lets everyone feel heard by getting their opinion out to the class. It makes people who may have never thought of your idea or realization, better experience the piece of work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to get a jump start on all of your assignments. Know what is due and when so you will have enough time to prepare for it. Last minute work will not fly for this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the course is a challenging blend of novel reading and poetry dissection, Mr. Rubino brings life to the potentially drab subject through humor and wit. Every class is more memorable than the last.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights occur after every novel that we read. We discuss the novel in depth for an entire class period and hearing input from every other student is enlightening and the discussions are always engaging. Sometimes they veer off topic, but the number of laughs that we share as a class creates a sense of family within the room.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read every single novel that is assigned and use sources such as Sparknotes as a guide, not a replacement. Put time and effort into your writing and you will receive a fair grade.
