    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this class because you are exposed to a lot of different writing styles and different readings. You learn three different essays types and how to write them. You are also taught different literary devices that help you analyze literature more in depth.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were Mrs. Raglow. She is an amazing teacher. But the class itself was also interesting. I improved my writing and learned a lot of different literary devices that help me analyze writing better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study your literary devices and make sure you read all the material, get comfortable writing all three essays so that you are prepared for the AP exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was an incredible experience. I learned so much from the course and it helped me grow as a writer. I was exposed to different types of writing and literature, so I learned how to take this new information and incorporate it into my papers. The class was fun and entertaining because Mrs. Raglow kept it that way. She was a joy to be around, and continues to be a mentor to me. The class bettered me as a person and as a writer.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the atmosphere of the class. The students wanted to be there, and you could tell that they enjoyed the class. I learned different types of essays and how to write them because we had to write three on the AP test. We practiced writing analysis, synthesis and argumentative essays in order to prepare for the test. We also spent the year learning different literary devices so that we could use them in our writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the books that are assigned. Make sure you understand how to write the specific essays and how to budget your time when writing them because you only have 40 minutes to write each essay on the test. Also make sure you know the different literary devices because they will strengthen your papers and your understanding of the material.
