    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is unlike any other because it invites you to explore the capabilities of the right side of the brain while understanding how to locate the bridge to the left through the use of formulaic methods for constructing essays and interpreting elements within the stories read. I gained a lot from this class and I would most certainly recommend it to any incoming junior!

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned how to crawl into the mind of an author and understand his/her thought process throughout the work, create a definitive and well-supported argument in a short amount of time, and read between the lines of any piece of literature. During this course, I certainly enjoyed the thought-provoking class discussions we had on the books, short stories, and articles we read, the extended essay we had over a book that gave us the liberty to select our own topic in the context of the story, and the opportunities for independent analysis of the works we read so that I could learn how to effectively interpret stories with deeper meanings.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend to students considering this course to never be afraid to ask the teacher a question about a part of a story you don't understand or anything that confuses you because teachers are always there to help and getting their insight on a certain aspect of a story can push you in the right direction towards seeing deeper into the story and eventually, you'll know how to read between the lines by yourself. In addition, always pace yourself when reading because this class requires in-depth analysis of characters and story events, so rushing to finish a book or merely skimming for major plot events will be of no use to you. Be sure to give yourself the right amount of time to read the story and have intriguing details of characters or story elements resonate with you that you can use for analysis in an essay, quiz, or a test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a really intriguing course; it pushed you to broaden your mind. I walked out of that class with a total different mentality of English.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned that evey student goes through struggles and it's important to be mindful of that, everyone is fighting a battle of their own; through our discussions I've noticed that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into the course with an open mind and you will take more than what you expected to; beyond English.
