    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed the class very much because of the books that we studied. The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye were life changing, getting to analyze them was a great experience.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned how to take sufficient annotations and to analyze the use of rhetorical devices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It really helps to set aside enough time to read and to study all the vocab as much as you can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was much better than regular Language Arts, in that I was among peers of my own standing. However, I feel I could have improved my AP score had I been taught more. I was thoroughly unsatisfied with a 2 on my test, and had studied for the test for weeks in advanced. I lacked some understanding of some of the books, because we didn't go into enough detail of the books we read. The class itself read some great books with some great discussions, but it lacked depth that I needed.

    Course highlights:

    The books read in this class were phenomenal, even for my classmates who didn't enjoy reading as much as I. The Great Gatsby, for instance, was tragically beautiful, and our discussions on the many symbolic creations of Fitzgerald brought many of quiet peers out of their shells.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course does require you to spend time outside to truly understand the material. It is important to invest the time, otherwise when you go to take the AP test, you'll find yourself struggling the entire time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is beneficial because it taught me that it's okay to follow my dreams even if they are out of my comfort zone. Mr. Lang made the class worth it every second of every moment because he never lost focus on what truly mattered and was a very positive and helpful teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to be able to get to know myself as a young adult. It gave me a chance to look at my self worth and my goals as someone from the outside looking in. It helped to manage my time effectively and made my goals seem possible. The courses were relatable to me and my goals outside of the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed I suggest that students pay attention and give their 100% dedication to becoming a part of that class. Even if you're shy like I was it's important to always participate. Don't be hesitant to share your thoughts and opinions to the class.
