    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely recommend it if you are really into english and reading if not it will be difficult. Involves reading multiple books at a time and plenty of writing including thesis essays, research papers and plenty of practice essays before the test at the end of the course.

    Course highlights:

    Learn/ brushed up on grammar, writing skills, analysis literature and understanding the writers purpose and view point

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE BOOKS ASSIGNED AND KEEP UP WITH WORK DO NOT PROCRASTINATE

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you think you might be interested in any career that requires mastery of argument, voice, style, or all of the above, you 110% need to enroll in this class. Grimes is one of the most respectable teachers I've ever had; he'll get straight into the meat of the class at the very beginning of the year, and, yes, your first assignment is an essay, but you'll come out of the Spring semester not just a better writer, but a more critical and aware student (and citizen), capable of making and supporting your own arguments for the rest of your life.

    Course highlights:

    Again, Grimes is great. He'll walk you through the art of creating and supporting arguments, and, as you start to analyze and debate more sophisticated texts, he will treat every single one of your ideas with respect- provided you can make an argument for it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the reading. If you don't read the text, you can't understand it, and if you can't understand it, you can't generate any original ideas on the topic- let alone support them with an argument.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language and Composition taught me how to write cogently, and I learned how to dissect and discern an author's argument. Additionally, the texts were very thought-provoking and helped to mold me into the critical thinker that I am today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include writing around nine essays per quarter and reading passages for around an hour or more per night. It is very difficult but the writing and critical thinking skills I received made it so worthwhile.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course you have to be willing to put in a lot of time; you have to take responsibility. You have to know how to manage your time wisely and show up to class ready to participate.
