    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class! The whole course is centered on understanding autobiographical works and their purposes. We read a lot of autobiographies and write short essays on them. Then we picked an autobiography or memoir of our choice and presented it to the class. The were no midterms, and only one final: to write our own autobiography.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to assess the events in my life that shaped me as a person. In my autobiography, I learned how to master storytelling through non-fiction, through the people I have met and the experiences we have shared. It forced me to look at my life thus far from a new perspective and I am forever grateful.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can't run off of winging every assignment. The professor actually looks for your voice and whether or not you are credible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I fell in love with this class and the professor. Professor Bender never turns down an idea and often encourages us to explore our thoughts more and come up with evidence to back up our claims. It helped me think more critically and she provided me with a safe and comfortable environment to express my thoughts without the fear of judgement. Without that fear, I was able to think with an open mind and to come up with ideas that surprised even myself. I never considered myself good at writing but through this course, I learned how to express my thought process more clearly.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained new found confidence in my point of view. But the best thing about this course is that it opened up my mind to new points of views. Although the study of fairy tales sounds superfluous, I have gained so much insight to the order of society, starting from childhood. The anthropology of the tales do not change over time and it establishes visible patterns and influences over children of society continuously.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely have to speak up during class. Let the professor hear your opinions and point of view so that you can further build and establish your claim. Professor Bender provides such a safe atmosphere that it will be a waste of an opportunity for you to express yourself. Do not be afraid of being wrong, because there is no wrong answer as long as you can back it up with proof.
