    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself is a classic high school English class just with the added rigor of being an Advanced Placement course. This can push some people away, but isn't necessarily bad. I think the class is worth it because Advanced Placement level of schooling helps with gaining scholarships and admission into colleges.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course mainly consisted of reading incredible literature written by some of the most influential people of the past century and analyzing these texts. We also learned how to write a variety of essays and analyze columns from famous columnists online to understand how they work and help us improve the persuasiveness of our own personal essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be ready to spend a lot of time reading and be prepared to spend triple that much time writing essays. You should believe in your creativity and ability to take a prompt and approach it from multiple sides in order to write a fleshed out and persuasive essay because most of the class is based on your essay writing skills. We write two essays a week, one in class and one outside.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Shattuck is a dedicated and worldly teacher. She keeps her class as focused as possible, without abusing them in any way, and strengthens comprehension of English, Rhetoric and Language.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of the course included weekly rhetorical analyses that we wrote in class. From these essays, my peers and I learned how to structure and thoroughly express our thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this course, be prepared to write. You will be at your computer a while, since Mrs. Shattuck insists that the best way to be a better writer is to write.
