    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Power makes you see the books and literature in general in a whole new light. She shows and helps you understand not only the content of the book, but the historical context and intentions of the author. Somehow, she makes reading interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Coming from not really liking reading, Beowulf was one of the best books of the year. The epic has so much history embedded into it that even those who hate reading will find something to love.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep up with annotations and readings. It seems like it won't help, but when it comes time for tests and quizzes, annotations saved my life.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a class that definitely challenged me. Some days were filled with successes, and others felt like I was lost in a maze. I learned that lots of times you write not to fulfill your personal wants, but to please the teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be very detailed in analyzing pieces, using rhetorical devices, and selecting observations, readings, and experiences.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study outside of class. Church will never tell you to do this, but it's in your best interest to look over rhetorical devices and prompts. Also, don't get down on yourself if one of your writings sucked. That's part of the class! Take that sucky essay, look it over, make improvements, and grow from your previous mistakes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I found this course exhillerating as the lessons were continuously difficult, it kept us young scholars on edge . with the unique collection of book. Each student was allowed the opportunity to express an individual perspective considering the topic. This course is not one to be taken lightly . one must be a productive, studious, and dedicated, this class is food d or the thought as it offers plays suchs as Ruined by Lynn Nottage all the way to the praised pride and prejudice by Jane Austen. If you are ready for a class filled with excitment, hard reads, and beautiful topics then you should devote your year to AP literature and composition.

    Course highlights:

    Student learn a unique sense of self. I felt I mostly learned more about myself as a student more than anything. Each book and lesson opened my eyes on how I saw the world veruses my peers. The main highlight was being able to compare my thoughts to great American and European authors and scholars.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Walk into the doors with your head high and your thoughts ready for discussion. Nothing is off limits in literature. With the college level proffesor all your idea are welcomed and your perspective is always permitted. Enjoy the books and never be scared to relate to a character they always learn a lesson at the end of the day.
