    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed this class, even though there was a heavy workload, because the way that my teacher taught his class. Mr. Andersen was always very enthusiastic and always had a positive attitude. He took English very seriously and taught my class how to be successful through writing and English skills.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite unit was our poetry unit and Mr. Andersen had a poetry club which automatically made him into the best poetry teacher in the school. He taught us how to scream through our writing and how to make our poetry flow through pages of words and I thought that it was amazing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be passionate about writing and understand that this class comes with high demand in writing and knowledge of vocabulary. This class also came with heavy reading assignments which followed with class-wide socratic seminars; in other words, read the book.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Anderson is a great teacher and genuinely seems to care about the success of his students. Honors English courses typically have Socratic Seminars which are a great way to hear your peers' thoughts and ideas about literature we are reading as a class.

    Course highlights:

    One of the required readings this year is The Great Gatsby. I enjoyed discussing this book in class as I found that my perceptions of characters and events grew as we collectively shared our thoughts and ideas. Mr. Anderson has a unique way of leading discussions to help us focus on key elements of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It' s important to manage your time so that you can stay on top of the demands of the class. The more effort you put in the better your grade will be, literally. When you know the content well you are able to participate more effectively and thoroughly in the Socratic Seminars.
