    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an AP course and therefore is not easy. I would recommend this class to anyone who loves to read and analyze, but anyone who prefers creative writing, then this class is not for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to write an effective rhetorical analysis essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the work. You won't get far by blowing it off and waiting till last minute.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mr. Endsley is a unique and incredibly adequate teacher. He knows the curriculum and teaches it well. If you dedicate yourself to learning what he teaches, you are almost guaranteed to get a 3 or higher on the AP exam. Also, the class never fails to be interesting and enlightening! AP English has definitely been the highlight of my senior year.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions led by Mr. Endsley about whatever material you are currently studying is always a highlight! He manages to make interesting what other teachers have made an absolute dread to students. You will never have more fun learning Shakespeare. I know I had a blast! The ability to talk openly about the material is also a huge highlight because it enables you to bond with your fellow classmates. The discussions taught me how to have a respectful, yet lively debate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to all future AP English students would be to stay on top of your reading, and study, study, study those vocabulary terms! Mr. Endsley gives weekly vocabulary quizzes that are a random selection of ten words from a list of three-hundred! It may seem overwhelming at first, but there are ways to be prepared! I came up with a solution by taking some of my personal time and creating a Quizlet with all of the words on it. I made it accessible to my classmates and we all used it. My Quizlet was a huge help! It will still be accessible to you as well since I don't plan on deleting my Quizlet account. If you would like to use my Quizlet, look up my username which is Lha1543. Please feel free to use it, and happy studying!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is the most beneficial course I've taken in all of my years of schooling. The teacher conveys more than just English knowledge, but teaches the skill of being able to think and understand the written world.

    Course highlights:

    We talk about debating quite often, which as everyone knows has two sides: the argument and the defense. He makes sure that you can logically comprehend both sides of an argument. While this skill specifically isn't much related to English, he teaches how to apply this knowledge to writing and reading other points of view and understanding them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to actually do the work that is assigned to retain the skills you practice in class. And even though the homework isn't exceedingly difficult, you have to focus on it to understand what you're doing.
