    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. St. John is a great teacher, one of the few that I have found trustworthy in the school. The literature we were required to read was interesting, although difficult and often long. Some of the books we read this year were Anna Karenina, East of Eden, The Stranger, etc.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course we have had interesting and thought provoking discussions on the books we read. Mrs. St. John is very hard working and always kept the grades up to date. She was always willing to help students with essays and questions they had.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you get your World Lit paper written and written well. It is easy to forget but the grade can bite you if you forget about it. Although you don't want to wait until the last night to read your book, don't string out your reading over too long of a timespan. Have your reading concentrated to a few days before the quiz/test is due.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The reading selection was fantastic and thought provoking. The teacher works tirelessly to help you improve as a reader and as a writer. She always promotes discussion and engaging in sharing your ideas. She's a fantastically friendly teacher, and makes you feel welcomed in her class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the in class discussions over the reading. Not only that, but I also enjoyed the essays, as she is tremendously helpful when it comes to writing essays. I learned a lot about poetry and what to write about when analyzing literature, especially for IB tests. She helped me learn about comparing and contrasting different works of literature and finding a meaning in that. Every day was a highlight in my opinion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, I repeat, read the books. Enjoy the books. Annotate the books. Engage in discussion with your friends and with the teacher about the books. Practice what you're going to write for the essays. Study the books. Write down similarities between the works that you could maybe mention on an essay or the IB tests. Work with the teacher and she'll work with you. You need to be enthusiastic because she's enthusiastic.
