    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class offers a great opportunity to save money on college classes by gaining AP Credit, and it helps one learn more about culture and history in regards to literature, which is an attribute of a well-rounded scholar.

    Course highlights:

    I learned timed writing skills especially - how to write an essay quickly and efficiently. I also learned new vocabulary that has helped me round my own vocabulary to a satisfactory level. It also helped me learn time management because of the work load.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn to do homework early!! If you look at vocab and learn it over a few days instead of all at once, it helps you to remember. Practice questions online help a lot in preparation for the exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My experience with this class was fun because of my great teacher, but with college level class, it prepares you above and beyond for college. This course allowed me to blossom in independence because it treated me like a young adult and not a kid who needed to be babysat. I learned valuable lessons on how to improve my writing and reading skills along with expanding my vocabulary.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to improve my writing, expand my vocabulary, and I've become a more diligent reader.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do NOT procrastinate. If you break up the work a little by little every night, it won't be such a burden on the last night. I learned this the hard way and had to either receive a failing grade or sacrifice my sleep when it all could have been avoided easily by just doing the homework and reading a little at a time. Listen carefully and be an active participant in class discussions. It will keep you awake and focused along with allowing you to remember clearer later that night when it is time for homework. Develop a good relationship with the teacher. Sit down, only talk when given permission, don't complain, and just be a good student. Teachers are there to help you learn, not burden you with work. If you do your part, the teacher will see you as a hard worker and will probably go easy on you. This course is designed to break you. You WILL agonize over the work, but if you behave, do as much as you can, and tell the teacher what is going on, he or she will likely give you extra time to complete it. I had to ask for more time to complete assignments due to my busy schedule. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Get the phone numbers of as many classmates as you can or can tolerate. This will help you when you are up until midnight the night before it is due, you are totally lost, and it is too late to email your teacher. It is likely many other students are up until midnight with the same project. Asking each other questions is the best way to get through it. Help one another because you're in the same boat. You will not succeed by having them fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for analytical readers. Mrs. Jones truly inspires the classroom with her love for literature, while she also entices her students to read a novel they never thought they would. Not only does she engage the class, but she also consuls and finds understanding for every student, a trait that has become scarce in most educators in public schools.

    Course highlights:

    The depth of a novel can be explored endlessly, and interpreted endlessly, ritual debate energizes the class and explores the hidden concepts and time periods that shed new light on a novel. Mrs. Jones was a first-year rookie at Powhatan, she manipulates this light to illuminate peculiar and distinctive novels that the class explores together. She also made the chapter of poetry a little less excruciating in narrating lengthy poems to the class, and promoting constructional debate and discussion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Maintain prompt attendance, discussion and debate of material is critical to receive that 5 on the Advanced Placement test. Mrs. Jones communicates adequately, and advocates for each and every student to succeed in her class. While attending her AP Lit course, it is vital for the student to note the cut throat competition in this Advanced Placement course, and that a perfect score on every essay is next to impossible. Mrs. Jones balances and compromises these essay scores with trivial class work and reading assignments that provide a recovery for a student will a sinking grade.
