Always Do the Reading
Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because Mrs. Lyons allowed us to have class discussions based on issues we read in books/excerpts which really helped me understand writing and perspective. Also, we did SAT practice every morning as bellwork which helped me get a higher score on my SAT writing. Finally, she holds a practice exam towards the end of the year once the AP exam is close and throughout the year has us do practice essay prompts which helped me prepare and study for the exam. I passed with a 4!
I learned the grammar of certain sentences and how to tell which sentence is wrong in the SAT multiple choice. I also learned about satire writing and what it accomplishes when writing it. Through class discussions, I was made aware about issues my classmates face such as discrimination and I learned how perspective can influence how someone interprets a reading. I learned what a well written essay looks like, and how to effectively write a thesis statement and that 5 paragraph essays should be avoided.

Advice for students:
You should read the material she assigns and take the essay prompts/practices seriously.
