    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a strong base on skills you need for writing essays in college and gives students the opportunity to read books that are very interesting and great to listen to as well as have class discussions about.

    Course highlights:

    We got to read Moby Dick, The narrative of Fredrick Douglas, The Scarlet Letter, and even How to Kill a Mockingbird. These novels were great to read and showed us how times we hard for blacks, how a man risked everything for a whale, how making a mistake can lead to being cast from your community, and what life was like for a girl named Scout and a boy named Jem.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for every vocabulary test and make sure you turn vocabulary in on time. Do not be late to this class or you will receive demerits. Do not fake reading the book, actually read the books or you will fail the tests and quizzes. Have a good understanding on how to write an essay and make sure you give it 120% or you will receive the score you deserve. NO PLAGIARISM!!!!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    American Literature is a fascinating course for those interested in the history of the United States.One can see the progression as America moves from a fledgling nation to a global superpower,all from the written perspective of those who helped to do it.

    Course highlights:

    The course in its entirety highlights the struggles,triumphs and flaws of our country.It gives different perspectives,from those who opposed important changes and those who radically supported it.If you are a Christian,this course goes in depth about the Puritan Era and its influence on the people of America.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Vocabulary terms are important,they'll help you understand what you're reading.While reading The Scarlet Letter,don't hesitate to ask Mrs.Myrick about what the author is meaning or about any symbolism you find,she'll be happy to help you.
