    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is an AP course, bu the class is not as rigorous as it may be rumored to be. Hardly any homework is given unless a student does not complete their classwork and the homework that is given is fairly simple and easy.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were all the fun books students were able to read. The classics like Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men, and a fun play A Streetcar Names Desire are all read in the class and the teacher does such a good job reading. His reading makes the story interesting because he adds dialects and accents to characters which allow the students to be engaged in the book as well as be able to paint a picture of the scenes in their heads.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A majority of the class is spent reading. It is not a whole period of reading however. The class is writing based so if students considering this class struggle in writing, Mr. Vitale is always up to answer any questions that need to be asked and he is available to help anyone who struggles in writing. The AP prompts given are true to the AP test and help a lot.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to Lakewood High School Students because it made me an enormously better reader and writer. The course goes in depth on how to understand a writers purpose and message and was the perfect preparation for AP Literature and Compostition in 12th grade.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the advantages it provided me in learning comprehension and rhetorical skills in the English language. It not only prepared me for AP literature and composition, but gave me confidence going into College English courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    always go as in depth on your homework assignments as you possibly can, do not skimp on them because they are the biggest key to the in class essay is and the lectures in class
