    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My feeling are in the middle about this course. If you are someone who loves English and reading and analyzing books, then this course will come naturally to you! It is also important to be good at quick analysis and explanation of passages.

    Course highlights:

    For this course I had freedom in choosing certain books I wanted to read. Also, the high difficulty level of this course is preparing me for the AP exam, which is needed because now I understand what the format will be and I won't be shocked about any of it. I have learned to manage my time better by teaching myself to read faster, in order to make quick judgments and answer timed questions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course I would recommend buying a study guide book to follow along with, in order to get any extra practice! Also, work on assignments when you get them, do not procrastinate!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class to students who are very skilled in delineating rhetoric and strategies that authors use to convey a message through their works. Also, if you want to be an author of the sort, then this is a wonderful class to broaden one's perspective of meaningful works of English language, as well as becoming stronger in writing effective essays for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlight was reading "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote and "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Both of them were very interesting to read on the surface level, though, if you were to dive deeper into its language, you would discover significant themes and messages within the novels. What I learned from those books is that there are many ways in which a theme can be interpreted, but typically, there is a universal truth that somewhat haunts the plot throughout the writing.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although there are some people (one in particular I have in mind) who can get away with not reading the novels and getting very high scores on essays, it's recommended that you read the novels assigned. Not only will reading the novel help you gain insight on your own, but when there are class discussions about the novel, you can add on or build on an original idea, which deepens one's comprehension of a theme.
