Always Do the Reading
Pretty easy, overall.
If you like to read and interpret literature, then I highly recommend this course! At first, I thought this class was going to be difficult and boring, but most of the reading assignments that the teacher assign are interesting and good to read! In order to get an A in the class, you have to be able to think outside of the box when analyzing, and you have to do the reading assignments.
The biggest gain that I took from the class is learning how to interpret and analyze different types of literature such as short stories, poems, and plays. Expect to study works from different eras. The hardest poem that you will probably encounter is The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot, but the professor really helps break the poem down. Many of the short stories that we read in class were really really interesting. Most of them had a twist at the ending. Be prepared to go in depth on the play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams! It's a great drama!

Advice for students:
To succeed in the class, it is important to keep up with your syllabus because it will provide you with the reading assignments. The professor may or may not remind which text is next to be read, so it is important to refer back to your syllabus because you WILL be quizzed on what she assigned for that day. Also remember who wrote what and when because those types of questions will appear again.
