    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because not only do you get a great learning experience, but you get to know more about yourself when you take in certain lessons from various literature.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, I learned how to be more empathetic through the stories chosen for this school year. I also learned various English concepts such as grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should go into this class knowing that high expectations are held for you. Although the class is not too hard, you are expected to be creative in assignments you do and essays you write, as well as knowledgeable.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend it because it prepares students for college. The course makes students learn and study in a completely different way from high school courses. Not only is the course great, but so is the teacher. She doesn't make things easy on the students, however she creates a path to allow students to learn their own way.

    Course highlights:

    I gained many writing skills from this course. I develop paragraphs and sentences like a true college student now. My papers have improved immensely due to this class. I also gained new ways of learning ideas that I was not used to. English 101 allows students room to improve every class and every paper that is due.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students taking this course is to proofread and allow critiques from others. A majority of time in this class is used to write papers. To succeed, the students have to learn to take constructive criticism and use it to make their paper better. As long as time and effort is put into the work, succeeding will not be difficult.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is amazing! Unlike many English classes where students are tested over their comprehension of the material and their knowledge of grammar, A. P. English Language moves past such trivia to greater things under Mr. Stancil's guidance. The class is discussion-based, valuing ideas and creativity over rigid rules. The discussions help the students learn how to present their ideas and listen to different perspectives, and they are almost always interesting and entertaining. Instead of reading comprehension quizzes as the primary grade, A. P. English Literature rigor comes from the essays. The standard five paragraph form preached throughout school is thrown out the window, instead emphasizing complex analysis and literary tools. While the grades may be harsh at times, Mr. Stancil is always available and willing to help his students improve. I can safely say that may writing improved by 100% by taking this class. In short, the class is both fun and useful, and it's possibly the best course that Caledonia High School has to offer.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions were definitely the highlight. In most English classes, students are told what the correct perspective (or what the teacher believes is the correct perspective) of the book is. In A. P. English Literature, students are encouraged to find their own meanings, which led to some interesting, even controversial, discussions. The teacher serves as a moderator for the discussion, and he does an excellent job avoiding bias, instead serving as a reminder to not veer too far off topic or to liven things up if the class ever does get too heated.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I have two pieces of advice. Number one: read the books! Mr. Stancil selects these books because he believes that, if given a chance, the whole class will benefit from a thoughtful analysis of its content and literary style. Also, reading is the single best thing one can do to prepare for the A. P. test. Number two: Look for tips to write essays. The toughest part of the class is the graded essays, so try to turn them into masterworks. The single best piece of advice I ever heard was to cut out as many helping verbs as possible, thereby converting passive voice to active voice.
