    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Lit is more than just reading and understanding literature; it also asks you what it means to be human and explores human nature and society.

    Course highlights:

    Reading through Hamlet and really, truly comprehending what Shakespeare is saying about humanity, and arguing amongst ourselves about different character interpreations were a lot of fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the Lit Device Glossaries out of the way as soon as you can. You really don't want to do them later.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Literature is a highly rigorous class that is challenging but rewarding. My teacher and the curriculum pushed me every day, and it was by far one of the harder classes I took in my high school career. Despite this, it was also my favorite class. The teacher made each discussion interesting and enticing. The course’s books were all fascinating reads, unlike most English classes. I truly believe that despite the class’ rigor, it was captivating enough to be thoroughly enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    Near the end of the first semester the class read Paradise Lost. This was a difficult read but the subjects covered in the book were fascinating. For example, some of the discussions we were able to have including if Satan was a hero, if God knew about Satan’s plan, Adam and Eve, and Eve’s part in the whole ordeal. Some of the discussions got a little heated between classmates, but that was the fun of it. It was actually the most fun I have had in a class. I would suggest to any students considering AP Literature is to stay on top of the semester’s homework. This makes things extremely easier in the long run. I would also suggest to make sure they read the summer homework and complete the worksheets that come with it. As a whole, just stay on top of the work and enjoy the course and classroom debate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging and exciting! You get to dive deep into classics such as Frankenstein and The Great Gatsby. Mr. Hollweg makes everyday fun and interesting. This class is by far one of my favorites.

    Course highlights:

    It was really fun to read Hamlet, and then watch different adaptations of scenes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read the books, short stories, ect. I couldn't imagine going through the class without reading them, it would be far more difficult than actually sitting down and reading the materials.
