Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to everyone because the classroom discussions opened my mind to think and interpret many different things in different ways. I loved the professor because she was very funny and also very inclusive. And when I say inclusive, I mean she took everyone's feelings and thoughts into consideration when talking about things. She never made any assumptions about her students and their stances on things. She took a person's pronouns into consideration, their political stances, and made sure that no one felt like their opinions were wrong. Would very much so recommend this course to everyone.
I learned how to accurately write fiction and nonfiction stories, how to process readings, and really think about the text. When we would read in this class we would look past the initial impression the words left on us and we would see what more we could find. This class taught me how to be an active reader, and how to have a "conversation" with the text. Since taking that class, I think about reading in a totally different way.

Advice for students:
Think of the readings as more than readings. What I mean about that is think about the words more than as they are written. They may mean more than what you initially think. Also, make sure you actually do the readings and don't put them off till the very end, so that you have time to think about what you are reading.
