    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course respects your time and effort. Simply put, what you put in is what you get out. During a stressful Junior year with hours of homework after school, this course was never an issue, and effectively prepared you for the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    In the course I learned to form strong opinions on issues; the course teaches you to look at the big picture and form an argument even if you don't have any data to back it. The course is never heavily focused on vocabulary, punctuation, or literary devices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Coming into this course, success stems from the amount of time you put into the course. Read the books assigned, they help you on the AP course and are genuinely interesting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing class that will teach you to become a proficient writer, prepare you for college classes, and teach you to handle time management in a setting that is fun to learn.

    Course highlights:

    A major highlight of this course is her ability to teach you how to write college level essays and analysis. She makes sure we know how to make our writing stand out and helps on college essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to receive a lot of work. None of it is extremely difficult however, it takes up a lot of time and can become overwhelming if you have poor time management.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mrs. Bridges gives you a first hand look on how college professors will treat you. She puts deadlines down, and expects students to follow them. Deadlines will make your grade, and that is how college teachers will do it also. She does not treat her students like they are high schoolers who don't know anything. In her class we enhance what we already know about writing, and take it to the next level.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the writing. We learned to not just write what we see, but to include all senses in each piece. In order for something to be a truly felt, the audience must be able to feel, touch, taste, smell , hear AND see what is happening. Writers must write to show their story as if each reader is there. Make sure everything you write is happening at the moment the audience member reads it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the annotations for all reading assigned because although they are tiny grades, they matter. Also, annotating helps to better understand the reading, and Bridges makes a huge point to ensure her students that each novel is viewed as art. Art has a message. She wants you to know the message.
