This might sound like a stupid question but I'd like your opinions. My reasons for still considering AP Lit: college apps and it doesn't feel right to "give up".
I am currently an AP Lang student. My teacher claims to grade essays harder than AP readers; out of about 10 essays I've gotten two 6 and rest 4 or 5. I don't see English as one of my strengths, more of a weakness. I find it difficult to read books I'm not interested in (which are 80% of books the course will require me to read) and fall asleep, end up going on SparkNotes, and failing quizzes. I get really annoyed and frustrated when I read text 10 times but I comprehend nothing because either the text is difficult to read or I'm half asleep.
What I like about English: There is a deep meaning to the books we read that relate to the world and it gets me thinking. I like to express my ideas and beliefs through speech or writing.
What I dislike about English: Difficult text. Having to write about topics I do not have interest or care about. Writing about what I believe in but someone tells me my writing sucks because I didn't do this or that.
What is the difference between AP Lang and AP Lit? Would you recommend that I take AP Lit?
