    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course. You learn tons of information, which really can boost your writing confidence. I loved the class, loved the teacher, and would love to take the course again if I could.

    Course highlights:

    Your analytical skill will become more enhanced. You will realize that saying "the reader" in your essays just isn't as sophisticated as you'd like it to be. The variety of books assigned in class are great, as the contexts contrast greatly. At least by the end of the course, you'll have some good conversation starters for parties in the near future!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you're on your toes. Do all the assigned work. Don't spark note any of the books, as it really won't help you in class, at all.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While there was a whole lot of reading to be done, if you enjoy english you will thoroughly enjoy this! Occasionally there is a bit too much reading into the text, but we read incredible books and really take the time to comb through them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of getting straight to your point at the start of the essay, no need to throw in extra words if they don't advocate for your thesis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take the time and carefully read the novels. You have many class discussions, so be willing to participate and engage yourself. The class is supposed to be fun, enjoy yourself!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the development of writing skills every student gained from it. Before this class, I was decent at best in writing papers, but throughout the course, we wrote many small commentaries, as well as final papers, and my skill slowly improved. The teacher was very willing to stay before and after class to answer both general and specific questions I had, and from him, I was able to improve my use of vocabulary, sentence structure, and my overall formation of ideas.

    Course highlights:

    During this course, we learned three major types of writing style that were on the AP Language and Composition Exam: rhetorical analysis, argumentative, and synthesis. From rhetorical analysis, I learned how authors think when they write, how to determine why they wrote something (with what purpose it was written), and how they furthered their arguments. From argumentative essays, I learned how to form coherent arguments that compelled the reader to not only agree with me, but to feel my side of the argument and the view I take. From synthesis essays, I learned how to take information from research and insert it into my own writing, as factual information.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend students enter this course realizing that it is a difficult course, and that they need to be prepared to work hard straight from the start. However, students need to know that the class will get more manageable as it continues, so they should not panic when the first month is very stressful and action-packed. Throughout the course, the skill level of the student will increase drastically, and it will be increasingly less difficult to score well on assignments.
