    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this rigorous course if you want an and advanced learning in the English language and an outlet to improve your writing and comprehension skills. It may be tough but it is one class that I do not regret taking due to everything it has taught me; from writing essays to just understanding the English language in a whole new light.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was that it pushed me to become a better writer. I was always the kid to get 3s and 4s on essays and now I've advanced to 6s and 7s. It may have been a bumpy ride, but this class helped me learn my potential and advance my knowledge farther than it could have ever gone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise student to take notes and always pay attention. The course moves fast and doesn't wait for anyone. Ask as many questions as you can and always communicate with other students through group chats or study sessions and contact your teacher. Without the communication, you'll go nowhere in that class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is fun because you get to work and learn with other people equally or more intellectual as you are, which will help you grow academically.

    Course highlights:

    Ms. Burke will teach you the basics to good writing. Up until this point, your essays have been written with "training wheels", in a sense. She will essentially take those training wheels off, which is kinda difficult but rewarding because you'll find yourself writing clearer and precisely.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a class you would want to slack off in because as soon as you do, you will fall terribly, but she does offer various assignments to help you bring that grade up because she doesn't want you to fail, she wants you to grow and take matters into your own hands. Failure in this class would be your choice.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Discussions in class were interesting, people housing different opinions on various topics. A lot of group work, templates to essays given to make the AP exam much easier.

    Course highlights:

    Group discussions and Game of Thrones-esque housing to make the course more interactive. quizzes almost every other week helped to study for the exam and expand the knowledge, also housing some rewards for the winners.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the summer work, and also finish any essays before the day they are due. You'll find yourself struggling a lot less if you get it done sooner.
