    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone because it truly educates you on the essence of American literature. Along with being able to leave the class every day feeling like you learned something, the teacher is what made all the difference. Although Professor Anderson was very hard on us, I know now that it was for a reason. She truly wanted us to take something from her course and apply it to the rest of our courses. I must admit, I wound up using a lot of her reading skills she taught us in other courses I took at Jackson State.

    Course highlights:

    In Professor Anderson's World Literature course, there were a plethora of highlights. I wish that I could list them all, but I will only list a few. One highlight from her class was that she found a way to transfer the love and passion she had for literature to each one of her students, including me. I walked into the class on the first day not caring too much about English or any type of world literature for that matter. By the end of the semester, I wound up wanting to learn more about world literature and wanting to further my knowledge in this field outside of the classroom. Another highlight of this class was being taught how to read and comprehend effectively. Professor Anderson taught us plenty reading tactics that we could use outside of her class. For example, we were introduced to a method called "skim reading". When you skim read, you are not reading every word on the page, but rather every two words and you truly skim the page. The way that she taught the skim reading method to us was very effective and I happen to still use it in most of my courses that I am still taking at Jackson State University.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice that I would give to students considering taking this course is to not try and skate your way through the semester, especially with Professor Anderson. If you skate your way through the class attempting to do little-to-no work, you are only harming yourself. This class is more than just learning about Hemingway and Dickinson, it is a life course. You learn more about yourself as a learner than you thought you ever would. It is a very beneficial course to those who love learning and want to learn more about themselves and the world.
