    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you plan on attending college. While difficult to balance everything at once in the beginning, this course teaches you to multitask and to get everything done. In the first couple months of school, I was overwhelmed. I even thought about switching out of it. But by the second semester I was glad I didn't. This course taught me to be responsible and get my priorities in check.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I had the chance to work with my classmates and bounce ideas off them. I started this course fairly closed minded about what I thought was right. But by the end of the course I was more open to listening to others opinions. Not only that, but I learned how to analyze what I was reading and how to pick out what was important.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to make sure you always read the book, Mrs. Mohr goes out of her way to look up the summaries and base her questions off of what you cannot find in them. And her tests aren't multiple choice so you have to be able to understand the materiel and put it in your own words. It also helps to talk to other people in the class before you take the quiz because they may remember something you didn't. Teamwork is essential.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives you a good literature basis. You will read and analyze classic books that you can use in later essays and are very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    We started the year with reading Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein" and ended the year with F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby". You learn how to write a proper essay on a book which will be extremely beneficial to you in upcoming years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you love to read I would highly recommend this course. Even if you don't it will make you love reading!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because this course helps improve writing skills and one's understanding of literature.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed books that made me think about people and the ambiguity of "right" and "wrong," such as Frankenstein, the Kite Runner, King Lear, and Atonement.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with your reading. Take what you write seriously, as you will be writing a lot of essays and, if your dedicated, will find that your writing will improve by the end of the year, making the prompts on the AP exam easier to write about.
