Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course will challenge your critical thinking and writing skills. You will learn what your future college professors will be looking for in your papers. You also get to learn about the history of American Literature and how it has developed over the years. You also get to read and learn about masterpieces, such as The Crucible and The Great Gatsby.
The highlights of this course were the projects that we had to complete. For example, our teacher gave us the opportunity to write about a problem in the world that needs to be fixed. We even gave our ideas on how to achieve the American Dream when we did our last project. This project gave us the chance to interact with the community outside of class and see if they agreed with our ideas.

Advice for students:
Do not wait until the last minute to do your assignments. Many of the writing assignments will require a lot of time to brain storm and revise before they are acceptable enough for a good grade. I would recommend starting on your writing assignments as soon as you get them.
