Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to any student. The class (and the teacher) have helped me improve my writing immensely. I also feel more comfortable with writing the essays I will need to write on the AP Exam, SAT, ACT, and in college.
The highlights have been working on our final project, which consists of various kinds of essays. So far, we have written a (humorous) personal narrative, extended definition essay, and are working on a Description essay. In the beginning, I thought it would be incredibly hard to write so many different essays of various styles. But, as we have worked through each of them, I have learned that I am a better writer now and also that there are many ways in which I can improve my writing.

Advice for students:
Be patient. In the beginning, you may not score a 4 on all of your practice ACT essays, or a 6 on the practice AP essays. But, by the middle or end of the class, writing begins to come more easily. Essays begin to just fall into place.
