Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Although it is a required course, English IV your senior year will prepare you tremendously for college. Definitely ask every question, pertaining to the class material, that you have. Your teacher will give you criticism and feedback on your work, but do not be discouraged about it. Just take their advice and do better.
Classroom discussions were very intriguing. I absolutely enjoy writing, but I find it very difficult to write without any sort of instruction or guidelines. Writing an argumentative essay and creating a photo essay about that same topic was very successful for myself. However, writing a reflective essay about a time I felt like a stranger, based off of the springboard story "Stranger in the Village", was a lot harder. I tend to overthink when writing. I learned a lot about grammar, believe it or not, that I had not been taught or did not really remember or understand in previous english classes. Over my last year in English before college really prepared me for my college application essays and just understanding the language in general.

Advice for students:
Always complete your assignments. Do not slack off or just not do an essay or project just because you do not want to or you do not understand. Ask questions for clarification. Take your teacher's advice and feedback and do not take their criticism harshly. They are there to help you succeed and get better.
