    | Would not recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Do not take her, she is very monotone and makes you want to fall asleep during class. All we did was read children's books during class and she would read to us like we were preschoolers.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the course was okay, I'm not trying to become a children's teacher so I wasn't that interested. But I think I learned some detail about children's books author's.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest only taking the course if you plan to become a children's teacher or you are looking for just an easy class to take. But my opinion look for a different professor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great course with an excellent instructor. I learned so much about children's literature and got to explore the local library in a way that will definitely help me as a teacher. I also got to read a variety of different books that I may not have otherwise picked up.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the Dr. Seuss extra credit project. I learned a lot and got to make a lesson plan that I would have used while teaching about this subject. I also liked the final project where I got to create a lesson plan using books that I chose and explaining why I chose them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you put in the effort that you expect to see. If you are on top of things, it is not a hard class. But if you procrastinate and don't communicate it will come back to bite you. It is key to communicate with the professor and your classmates. That's how you'll succeed best.
