    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language is admittedly a difficult class; not only is a lot of work required, but a strong desire to benefit from the class is needed to succeed as well. If you are aspiring to really fine tune your writing and critical thinking ability, you will get a lot out of this class. The environment is generally light-hearted and comfortable, as you will be surrounded by other advanced and creative students with a strong passion for writing. The course is essay driven. You will be studying rhetorical strategies demonstrated in renowned essays and applying them to your own writing. Each day is a generally laid back, conversational and lecture style class, with little to no nightly assignments. A few major and weekly projects make the bulk of the grade.

    Course highlights:

    This course refined my writing ability far beyond my expectation. Every day was thorough and productive. I learned much more than simply what is "right" and "wrong" in writing. My class explored unconventional ways to approach essays, striving to be all but formulaic and "robotic." I feel that my current writing ability genuinely sets me apart from other students with due credit to this course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The key to this class is time management. Every assignment you receive is doable if you are retaining the information that is provided to you throughout the course. Keep notes everyday, and refer back to them. The barrier that many students run into is not making the time to complete the assignments to their best ability. These assignments will make the bulk of your grade, so make sure you are summiting quality work. Ultimately, waiting until the night before something is due is only harming yourself and causing unnecessary stress. Try to make a habit of proper time management from the beginning of the course. It is expected of you to be reading non-fiction on a daily basis. Keep up with what is current in newspapers, online resources, and news channels, as it will likely be discussed in class.
