    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it strengthened me as a writer. During this course, I got to write essays every week, read informative books, talk about my opinions, and express myself. The teacher's goal was to inform the student and prepare him or her for college. She kept each student aware of when assignments were due, and she gave each student an outline of how the semester would go.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I learned so much. My grammar skills multiplied, my writing skills expanded immensely, and my reading skills improved greatly. The teacher of this course would challenge the students by making the topics for essays wide open, which would make it hard to choose a topic. I really enjoyed that the teacher made an outline for the semester so I could know when assignments were due. The teacher of this course also made the environment such as a college setting. I appreciated that because I know this will prepare me for next year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course, I have some words of advice. First, do not procrastinate. Each assignment takes a good amount of time to complete, and if a student waits until the last minute, he or she will not complete it in time. The teacher assigns work every class and does not accept assignments late. Furthermore, ask questions. The teacher is there to help every student learn, and she will answer questions a student has. Lastly, enjoy every second. In English, there is so much that can help students not only at school but in everyday life as well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend this class to any college bound student for two reasons. One, Mrs. Sweet does not let up! She will push you to make sure you get all the work done and there is a lot. Second, this class is fairly fast paced so you get a good taste of what a college class is going to be like.

    Course highlights:

    In this class we read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, I really enjoyed reading this book and learning about how important her cells are. I obviously learned about the HeLa cells and their importance, but I also got to learn about Henrietta's life and her children.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say you need to be ready! This is not an easy class that you can sail through. I would be sure to keep up with all of your reading guides, because that is very tough at the end if you do not.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives an early college look to courses. It helps in every aspect of English. This course uses multiple books and gives prompts that relate to the books and daily life issues. The books that are taught in this course are educational and have a wide range of topics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are the reading and then writing portion. In this course, you read portions of a book and then write an essay with a certain prompt that is related to the book. Through this course, I have learned many things. I have learned proper English and writing techniques that can be used on essays and day to day use

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give students that are considering this course is that they should take it. It is college credit in high school that is free for you as a student. It is easier to get this course done before college and receive credit for it. Take time if you do take this course and put effort into your work and essays.
