    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is structured for preparing a student for the AP exam at the end of the year, by reading works of literary merit and going into the depths of a character's psyche, finding thematic connections and real world applications, or more specifically (in some cases) political/social commentary embedded within, and picking out literary devices and rhetorical strategies intentionally planted by the author in order to effectively convey a pivotal message on life or society in a work of fiction. By finding these things, a student could hone their skills of interpretation and abstract thinking, which are vital on the AP Literature exam.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I thoroughly enjoyed the discussions we had over stories we were currently reading individually, or plays and poetry we read altogether in class, because I felt I was in my element the most when I was talking about literary concepts, terminology, and strategies I noticed while reading and receiving input on my findings, as well as hearing what other students in the class discovered to help me expand on my knowledge. In addition, I became very close with the teacher because I'm a very curious person by nature and I was always coming up to her with questions on the books we were given, and she was always happy to help and discuss. Our conversations enabled me to dig deeper into the stories, evolve my ideas, and learn more about life in general.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely recommend that students considering this course should prepare themselves for thorough and honest reading, detailed analysis, an abstract mentality in regards to reading, a plethora of essays, challenging quizzes, group participation, lively discussions, but all in all, an incredible opportunity to understand how said students, society, and life itself function in the universe.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was an overall great class that helped me learn various and different styles of writing. It helped me understand how to interpret and comprehend these styles as well in a more mature setting than a class filled with kids not wanting to actually learn.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to quickly and effectively understand different styles of writing and accurately develop excellent essays on how pieces within these styles were written

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to challenge yourself while developing your skills as a writer. Don't slack or think this is a blow-off class- it isn't.
