    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was probably one of the best I've ever taken. Unless you earned the college credit for it in high school, every college student has to take it, despite the major. I read so many interesting poems and short stories in this class that made me think, or that I could relate to. Obviously we had to read some older ones that I didn't enjoy very much, but our professor made us well-rounded, which I liked. We didn't follow a curriculum, like in high school with Shakespeare. He chose the stories and they ended up being really wonderful.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about different authors from different time periods, which I enjoyed. For example, Sylvia Plath is one of the most famous and well-known female poets, and we learned about her life and how awful it was. This included in her death, which was really disturbing, but by learning this about her, it made sense why she wrote the poems that she did. I learned so many different literature pieces because of this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep up with his journals! They're repetitive, which can be tedious, especially when you have essays and projects in other classes due. It's not all for nothing, though. They're the main points towards your grades and he lets you use them on his tests. It's definitely worth the work, and he makes literature fun if you struggle with it.
