    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging but rewarding for all participants.

    Course highlights:

    The class focuses on style analysis and research. I has gained the ability to identify the author's purpose for writing and analyze the strategies the author used to fulfill his/her purpose using specific examples from their texts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate completing your assignments. When a long project is assigned, work on it periodically from the time it is assigned until the due date: not all at once.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was astronomically helpful in carving me into a great essay writer, as well as a more determined scholar. It taught me to look differently at everything around me, not just those long 'boring' books teachers will make you read. The course load is astonishing, at times painful, and enough to make you regret ever making the decision to enroll. Day after day, week after week you'll curse the teacher, curse yourself for procrastination, and at every step wonder if it's even worth continuing. This course breaks you down, tears you apart, but then puts you back together in a way you never thought imaginable. Skills you never even knew you had will shine brilliantly, and you will see the world (no joke) with an entirely different outlook. Finishing the course will make you prouder than anything has ever managed to, because you have worked for it and you sincerely deserve it - there is no skating by under the radar in this class.

    Course highlights:

    Before taking this class, I thought I was an English buff. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Literature and Composition, especially since I was one year accelerated. However, this class taught me more than I could ever possibly have hoped to. Learning how to write a proper Style Analysis essay was probably the hardest, longest, and most grueling aspect of the entire two semesters. In the beginning, our teacher was blunt with us about how terrible our writing was. Yet, she also promised that after participating in her lessons, we would be writing 'kick-butt' essays. She wasn't lying. Aside from learning writing and analyzing skills that would help me not only in school but also in everyday life, I was molded into a better scholar and person, forced to keep myself accountable. You wouldn't think an English class could teach you life skills, but you'd be surprised.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Never give up hope. You will, I promise you will. I did, at least twenty or fifty times. So I guess I'm a complete hypocrite. But, trust me - you can do this. During this class, procrastination will kill you. But, that doesn't mean you won't be tempted. Try to resist the urge, but also keep your own mental health in mind. Only you know your limits. Most importantly, keep persevering. Once you've completed your final paper, turned in your portfolio of your beautiful, polished work, and conquered the AP test, you will experience a feeling of overwhelming fulfillment and satisfaction that is incomparable.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Florio is an amazing teacher and her class is hands down the most useful and most important class you will ever take in high school.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write an essay that I was proud of. Anyone can write an essay but under the supervision of Mrs. Florio you will learn haw to write an incredible essay which definitely helps when taking other courses and applying to colleges.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. I know everyone says that but AP English III is already a difficult course but if you don't do your work on time it will all pile up and you will have a breakdown. I speak from unfortunate experience.
