    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Ginn understands the test, and helps to better the individual knowledge of students by using socratic seminars over class readings. These discussions help students gain a better understanding of the text.

    Course highlights:

    I am learning to see stories in a different way. Not all narrators are reliable, for instance. Not all authors write good stories. I see them in a different way because of this class. I can pull important pieces from stories now.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a capable human being with half a brain and at least some desire to succeed, you should be fine. I have seen complete idiots take this test, and do fine. If they can, you should be able to do the same.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Jiles is a wonderful teacher. He really teaches students how to closely read novels and stories, and it helps the students become more thoughtful and analytical of their reading. The books he assigns are just challenging enough so that you learn from them, but they aren't impossible to read. This is one of the only AP classes where I've felt actually prepared for college, and I am so glad that I'm taking it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to deeply analyze books and texts so that I can pick up on the deeper meaning, which really helps when it comes to writing papers and taking tests over books and other things.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read all the books that you are assigned. If you don't read the books, you won't be successful in the class. You might be able to keep a decent grade, but you won't gain anything, and knowledge is the most important part of school.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is well taught, and you get to further your reading of literature. It also teaches you how to read the more in depth meaning of stories. It really helps further your meaning of works as a whole.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, so far, I have learned how to analyze the deeper meaning of different types of poems, analyze short stories, and write well written argumentative essays. This course is a good course to teach students how to read deeper than the surface meaning of works of literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to choose wisely, and know their limits. This course is a lot of reading, and if students are unwilling to read all the works, they will not benefit from this course and really struggle on the AP test.
