    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Willis challenges your mind with the way he teaches. You have opportunities to participate individually as well as team-oriented. He opens your mind to the world of literature and helps you understand it better. This course can be a little challenging, but if you're dedicated to hard work, I would definitely recommend this course

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding as to the time periods back then. I learned a lot of interesting new stories. I was definitely intrigued at how valuable and notable the morals of the stories were.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! Read your stories word for word. If you don't understand or can't comprehend something, feel free to find a summary of the story (from a reliable source) that analyzes characters, plots, and motives. Also, buy a lot of ink pens! He doesn't allow pencils.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class because the teacher didn't seem to care about the success of her students. The tests had hard and irrelevant questions and there was no semblance of contact at all.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the authors we learned about were really cool because we got to learn about their personal lives and their literature.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes while reading the stories and go to all the websites she recommends​ because this is not an easy A class.
