    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to English lovers and non English lovers alike! Mrs. Chambers creates an unique environment and takes the time to learn what interests all of her students. I left the class with an even larger love for literature.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of this class were the times when we had discussions after each one of our reads. These were the times when I felt I learned the most about that piece of literature, the entire class participates and you hear analysis from several points of view. I also learned the most about literary techniques when we discussed, because you get to see them actually put into use and just how the author incorporated it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Expect to be challenged. This class and teacher expects the best from you, but also prepares and equips you with enough tools to accomplish that high quality work. You will be expected to read and write about several books and poems. Read the books throughly, and take notes on various motifs and themes that occur throughout, this will help you not only on the test, but during the discussions as well. This course focuses on being able to articulately deliver poetry analysis and address the prompt with ease. One thing I wish I would've been prepared for going into the class is how many hours a week are necessary to put in, in order to get the most out of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Chambers is such an incredible teacher. She is so knowledgeable in her field of study and spends the whole year preparing her students for both the AP Literature and AP Language test. This class is for people who love to read, analyze poetry, and work hard.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the sense of accomplishment I felt after finishing a challenging book or receiving a good score on an essay. In this class you learn how to use literary devices to analyze poetry and how to dissect on a complex level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find time to read your books and study for test that Mrs. Chambers will give in class. Take your time seriously in class and actively participate in class discussions. Be respectful for Mrs. Chambers and she will treat you with respect as well.
