    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the reading material is rich and interesting. The Professor is very good at keeping his student engaged and often hosts class discussions that stimulates the minds of students and encourage the development of their analytical skills.

    Course highlights:

    During this course I read a lot of work by authors I had never come into contact with and some that I had never even heard of. I enjoyed reading material that I had never been exposed to, particularly E.D.E.N. Southworth's novel, The Hidden Hand. It was a fantastic novel that discussed themes of slavery, gender, love, and fate that kept me engaged and made me excited to go to class so I could discuss it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to always do the reading. The majority of the classwork is discussing the reading material, and participation is a large percent of the final grade. While the readings might be long, more often than not they are very good and worth reading. When it comes time to tackle the final research paper, having done the reading will aid you in creating a well-rounded paper.
