    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really loved AP English Language. I feel as though my writing skills improved over the course of the three trimesters of the course, and I liked both Mrs. Defoe's and Mrs. Jenkins's teaching styles. I also grew as a student by practicing the ability to think of ideas and translate them on to paper during on demand essays. Along those lines, I improved my reading comprehension due to the amount of reading we had to do for that class. We read books, articles, speech transcripts, poetry etc. which not only helped my critical reading and thinking skills, but also broadened my literary horizons. All in all, I would recommend to anyone to take AP English Language.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to extract imperative information from a source, I learned how to best select concrete details from a source to support an argument. My teachers taught me how to identify and analyze satire in its many forms. They taught me how to appreciate the power of words and language, and above all else, they taught me to think and argue a stance.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask for help! This applies to many courses, but for APEL especially it is vital to receive advice and help when you need it. This is important to rememeber both before and after writing on demand essays. Your teacher is there to help you, and they want to give you feedback on your writing. Don't be embarrassed to ask how to improve, because it's so much harder to do it on your own.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches you the importance of rhetorical devices, and how to utilize them correctly in order to convince the reader. Also, the teacher makes the class enjoyable with anecdotes coupled with humor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that sometimes more is less. To expand, quantity does not always equal quality. For example, on the on demands, if you continue to elaborate on a fact that does not contribute to your main point, you will get marked down, because in the end, fluff is fluff.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should ask the teacher for help if needed. Ms. Dafoe does an excellent job going over any questions you may have on the On-Demands during her one on one sessions. You will eventually see a massive improvement in your future essays and your scores.

    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!
