    | Would recommend.

    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.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the AP Language and Composition course if your high school offers it because this course allows you to go into more in depth in the actual writing of authors and being to analyze why they wrote a story the way they did.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was being able to do a "Cold Write" as Mrs. Porter calls it. As soon as you get into the classroom you get a released AP writing prompt and you have 40 minutes to sit and write the actual essay which allows you to think on your feet and being able to bust out an entire essay in 40 minutes and it actually score a 8 on the AP exam is impressive.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are assigned a book, make sure you stay caught up with the due dates. When you are assigned an essay, make sure to give one hundred and ten percent because she will take it with a grain of salt and look for improvements you could make. She will push you, but it is worth it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for students who are willing to think outside the box and look deeper into everything they do. This is a great course for students who are wanting to challenge themselves and wanting to get a head start on their college career.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course I have learned many things such as having responsibility, learning to read and enjoy the book, and how to prepare myself for the real world. This course was extremely beneficial towards my English ACT score and has helped me love to read. Without this course I would have moderate reading skills, but instead I enjoy reading!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work! This gives a good preview of how college would be and making time for this course would be the best for your grade.
