    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While this class is a lot of work and can be stressful at times, it is the class hat has helped me the most out of any class I've taken in high school. I use skills I learned in this class to help me with my work in other classing, and with other AP tests I've taken. I highly recommend taking this class and trying your best to retain everything you can manage. It's worth it.

    Course highlights:

    This class taught me how to identify real, factual advertisements and understand the fallacies companies often use. I also learned how to evaluate texts, such as newspapers and articles, and fictional writing that helps me in my AP Literature class currently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you get into the class, make sure your work is completed on time and submitted. Do not procrastinate your work, because things will start to pile up and you won't be able to catch up. Apply yourself to the best of your ability, or you won't retain the information and the class won't be worth it. Try your best.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Our teacher, Mrs. Meckley, prepared us immensely well for the AP Exam. For those who don't know what an AP exam is, it's a class that is a college credit that you take, and at the end of the year, you take the college exam. I myself passed the exam at the end of the year. We did tons of practice in class. I didn't feel nervous when I sat down to take the exam. I highly recommend Jamie Meckley as a teacher. She had a positive attitude every day, and always tried to make every student feel they could succeed.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me a better understanding and a powerful appreciation for the English language. We read books such as Anthem, 1984, the Scarlet Letter, and Great Gatsby. We learned how to analyze everything from tone to why the author used the style they chose. We learned how to write a well written essay in less than 40 minutes; these essays were known as Rhetorical Analysis, Synthesis, and Argumentative. A synthesis essay is like a DBQ (Document Based Question) essay in History. Rhetorical Analysis essays require you to read a prompt and find rhetorical strategies used and explain why the author used them. Argumentative essays require you to do just that - argue your opinion. You would think that argumentative essays would be the easiest to write, but that is not the case. Rhetorical analysis was the easiest for me. Highlight wise, I gained an appreciation for the English subject. I grew closer with my classmates. I learned to accept other's opinions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this class is: do not procrastinate. I know that that sounds obvious, but it is very easy to put off on your assigned independent reading and then expect greatness the night before it is due. Study your rhetorical strategies. Know them. It will help you immensely when writing rhetorical analysis essays. Expand your vocabulary. Broaden your opinions - don't be closed off and think that your opinion is the only opinion. Be prepared to hear other's thoughts.
