    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to all individuals, for it's lessons were a fundamental piece of preparing me for college- as we were taught to write an effective argument as a true piece of art. In dissecting some past influential speeches- such as those by Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy- this class has allowed me to truly develop my own voice as a writer. Thus, my experiences from this course have made a permanent imprint on my life in every aspect.

    Course highlights:

    In this riveting course, our daily class discussions about the most recent debates around the world helped us put our writing into a current perspective. Once our lessons evolved into the proper way to use supporting details, this class was magnificently bombarded by facts and figures from other math classes, history classes, art classes and the like. For once, I could envision how an English class is strongly tied to all other subjects in high school- which opened my mind to so many questions. However, our month of philosophy was undoubtedly the most impactful lesson that was taught in this course. As we discussed history's greatest philosophers, I understood how the most common arguments can be explained by our good friends Plato and Socrates. Now, a debate about whether schools would benefit from local sponorships can be understood by claiming individuals as naturally good and therefore gravitate towards good actions in the world since they have an inclination. Therefore, the smallest and seemingly pointless current debates can be supported or countered by our supreme philosophers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise future students to not do the homework just to "do homework." Instead, students should thoroughly think about each word and phrase that they are putting on their papers and understand how their essays can be applied to the values of life. As this class is strongly weighted on on-demand essays in class, it is quite helpful to cumulatively find supporting details that can be related to the morals of society, the good versus evil in the world, the good of the few versus that of the many, and most importantly what individuals value today. With this in mind, students will have a better opportunity to develop an essay that is unique in context- instead of the mojority of students who use the same details from current politics in their writing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is now retired. This was not in 2009, but in 2007.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use a new talent. This course and specific assignment opened up a door for me to let my ideas be heard and get others to like me while I was a very shy and quiet kid. The sound of the laughter was like waves of approval washing over me and it felt great to give that to others so easily.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    She's retired now. If she were still at the high school she might be still as difficult because she demanded a certain effort from her students as we were an AP class. Without relying on her inspiring teaching style, we would have to trench our way through the challenging texts and form our own ideas out of. This push made my opening wider and helped.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The power is in your hands when you can use words well. From here, I came to conclusions about my own life and have since been capable of using persuasive skills to build relationships amongst my student body by making myself open and convincing them that empathy is the ultimate solition.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that analysis of the past makes the present comprehendable. Had I not taken this class, I would never see how in every situation, there is a cycle that must occur and to overcome this, patience is required. This class taught me to be a functioning human being more than anything else.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Rewrites not only boost your grade but truly teach you where your writing needs improvement. Don't cringe at your work, acknowledge where you can improve.
