    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Ms. Swihart is the best teacher you will ever have. She has a way of expanding your mind through the books you read in class and the essays that you write. The poetry section of the class is eye-opening. You will be able to analyze poetry with ease, and you will learn many profound human truths through these poems.

    Course highlights:

    I grew into the writer that I am today. This course developed my writing skills like no other class had before. It prepared my to write the Extended Essay, and to write all of my college application essays. This course pushed me to become a better reader and an even better writer. It makes you analyze readings, poems, excerpts, etc, and you often find yourself analyzing other pieces of work like tv shows and movies after taking this course

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. The. Books. Your life will be a million times easier if you just read the books. Put effort into your work and be proud of what you turn in every time. Complete the work on time and stay on top of it and you will be good to go.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is definitely one that makes you think a lot and without these deep thoughts, everyday life would be boring. Having the ability to deeply connect my thoughts with the world around me is truly intriguing and makes life so much more eventful and fun. Dr. Minor has greatly helped me in having the ability to do this and without him and his intelligence, I feel as though I would be missing out on a lot more in life.

    Course highlights:

    I've enjoyed reading novels and either loving them or hating them. Having a different opinion than my peers about a piece of literature that has had us all thinking thoroughly is much more fun than it sounds. Although some works literature are much more confusing than others, being able to develop a different (or the same) opinion as my peers is interesting. Different views of literature help to further develop my understanding as well as open my thoughts to allow me to understand the opposite point of view than my own.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're interested in taking this course, you should also be interested in and good at analyzing various pieces of literature. Being able to compare and contrast the works of many authors and analyzing their pieces as well as determining what they were thinking during the writing process takes some internal thoughts that you have to acquire after many years of practice. Due to the fact that English is required as a class to take in Florida, I was able to practice analytical reading since 6th grade which has greatly impacted the way I thought of the various pieces I've read over the years.
