    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class completely changed my perspective on writing. Before I took AP Lang, I was a cookie-cutter writer; I stuck to the classic five-paragraph essay and never branched out to show my personality through writing. At the beginning of the class, it was extremely hard to adjust coming from honors to AP English, but once I got a hang of the routine, it ended up being an extremely beneficial class, especially when it came time to write essays for college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was writing a paper on a subject we felt strongly about. I wrote about mental healthcare in America and it was one of my most passionate writing pieces to date. I loved looking back and seeing how much my writing improved and I enjoyed the papers we did because they challenged me to be even more creative each time. I learned that with great writing comes great reward. Being able to convey my thoughts and feelings so clearly has helped other people understand different experiences I've gone through.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get thrown off by the "0-2 hours" of outside work. You will work hard IN class every single day. There is almost no out of class work as long as you're focused and efficient in class. Don't be afraid to ask for help, because Mr. Friedman WILL help you and your grades will get significantly better on your papers, you just have to be willing to put yourself out there and not be afraid to write passionately. Be prepared to write on topics that you aren't familiar with, but keep an open mind about it, because all of the essays and in-class activities make you much more successful on the AP exam. Friedman sets you up to get a 5 on the exam, but you have to be willing to put in the work and time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to a rising junior because I feel that i this English course you are pushed and stretched in your writing in ways which you have not been before in your academic career which develops you as well as prepares you for writing as you become and adult. Also, Mrs. Ingraham is a fun and entertaining teacher who is always looking for new and interesting ways to dissect readings and develop your reading/writing ability.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course have been the expanse of literature we are exposed to on a daily basis as we bounce around from George Orwell to Jonathan Swift.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course make sure that you are prepared and enjoy writing analytic papers and have a good understanding of literature.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me develop my writing skills and find my personal voice.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a cogitative and thorough essay, as well as how to synthesize and apply the writing of other authors to my life and my own writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be comfortable in writing with your personality rather than what you think you should sound like.
