    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a truly beautiful and memorizing course. It is a great treasure that should be cherished for all eternity. When I first took the course, I was surprised by the beauty of English to say the least. If anything it has completely changed my life for the better. Before this course, I liked English but it was not anywhere close to becoming my favorite subject. I can definitely say that has changed. I know love English and willingly spend my free time analyzing articles.

    Course highlights:

    We learnt how to analyze the methods and manners an author uses to manipulate his or her audience - rhetorical analysis; how to effectively argue and manipulate the audience - DQC; and also how to synthesize both your views and those of others - research paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just keep trying. You may not initially succeed, but the more practice you get, the more easier it will become. Don't beat yourself up about the first on demand essay. Just keep swimming!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    APEL was the first class in high school where I actually felt like I was learning because I wanted to, not because I had to. I would look forward to fourth period every day knowing that we would be having some intellectual debate or conversation in class. I also grew tremendously as a writer from the start to the end of the year. My first on demand compared to my last shows how my knowledge and writing skills grew so much in just one school year.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the political and social issues going on not only in our nation but also in the world. Not only did I learn about those things I also formed my own opinions on important topics and learned how to express those opinions in socratic seminars, essays, and even classroom discussions. We had so many thought provoking and truly interesting conversations in APEL about things I had never even contemplated and I really feel like it was the most important class I took these past four years.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend going in for help as much as possible. I started off getting C's on most of my on demand essays but coming in to meet with my teacher and learn what I did wrong allowed me to learn from my mistakes. There is very little busy work in this class which is great but it also means that you need to motivate yourself to stay on top of your work, There are a few major assignments and getting them done throughout a long period is much better than waiting to the last minute, especially since writing takes so much editing and revising.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this because you learn how to write essays. Also, Mrs. Dafoe is amazing!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to really pick apart, analyze, and connect a piece of writing, and then how to write an essay on it. I also learned how to argue.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework and take the on-demands seriously. Don't procrastinate on essays.
