    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because of how different it is from most other classes. In many other classes, you learn on the strong basis of proven facts. However, most elements in mythology can't be proven, which leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the class was Greek mythology because it's very present in mainstream media (i.e. Percy Jackson) yet the average person doesn't know very much about it. I learned in detail things such as the family tree of the main Greek gods and goddesses and the finer points of Homer's Odyssey,

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take concise notes, but don't stress about it too much. After all, it is an elective. Read all the required reading materials, especially when you do your book clubs. Also, having a little creativity helps because we did have to do art-centered projects.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a difficult course load and the class was not too interesting. But, the teacher made it fun. I'd take it if you want to challenge yourself or want to get ready for AP Literature and Composition.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were having deep discussions in class and learning more about everyone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books!!! Many times I didn't in that class and it was a struggle to understand what was going on in and be apart of the discussions. But, once I did, it was great!!

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the tools it gives you to take higher level English classes such as AP Literature and Composition or College Composition. Although some of the assigned readings can be a bit dry, the overall message of each piece arms you with another piece of historical evidence you can use later.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course for me was the connections it made to my junior year history class (AP US History). The thoroughness of this class really helped me characterize many of the overwhelming characters from history, such as Fredrick Douglas. Additionally, learning to cope with and completely understand a difficult text was an invaluable lesson I learned while taking this class. This lesson has already benefitted me greatly in AP Literature and Composition.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay caught up on your reading. Although your teacher may give an overview in class, reading it on your own will truly help you when it comes to giving your opinion. Also, I would advise students taking this course to start papers early in order to allow for time to ask your teacher questions or to revise your piece to ensure it's your very best!
