Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor was highly engaged in the discussion forums and went beyond just the course discussion posts, but discussed other Shakespeare related items as well. The course surveys different plays written by Shakespeare with a final research essay. The essay is based on student choice, but must be about one of the plays read within the course.
I learned a lot about the history of Elizabethan England and how to better read and analyze Shakespeare plays. The discussions were engaging and the professor took the time to respond to almost everyone and pose questions that kept everyone thinking.

Advice for students:
Begin reading the Shakespeare plays ahead of time or else it takes an entire day to read the play about 6-8 hours. Since the work is given ahead of time, it is easy to know the assignment and the discussion post before hand. Be sure as well to ask questions or have the professor read portions of the final essay to ensure the essay is headed in the right direction.
