Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
This course really prepares you for college level reading and teaches you how to delve deeper than the surface meaning in books, poems, etc. It allows for a deeper understanding and, often times, a more interesting, intellectual read. And, just an added bonus, the skills I have learned in AP Lit have helped me better understand movies, tv shows, etc.!
The highlights in this course include: an expansion of your close-reading skills, preparation for college-level reading, and gained knowledge of "the classics" and the time periods and movements in which they were written/ set.

Advice for students:
Don't give up and don't let all the reading scare you! Mrs. Delguercio gives you plenty of time to read and annotate. At times, the course load can definitely appear to be a little daunting, but stick with it because the knowledge you emerge with at the end of the course makes it all worth it. Also, warning: this class is not all reading! You will have to write and work with poetry as well. And one last thing: there are not many opportunities to gain points in this class. While there are many assignments, such assignments are usually worth no more than 10 points, so give it your best with all assignments!
