    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher provides you with insight to the world of literature. He challenges your mind and your skills. Although the class is a little tough, it's very beneficial and it will give you that extra push you might need! I would definitely try it!

    Course highlights:

    Mostly I learned great stories, but I also learned a lot of history about certain time eras that took place. This broadens your perspective on stories, past history events, different languages, and more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! Make sure you come to this class prepared. Don't be religious! Allow the professor to express how he feels regardless of your opinion (because it's HIS class). And just relax and have fun. Once you take your first test, you'll catch on to the pattern and it'll become easier.

    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.
