    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone that loves reading old literature. Especially when thinking about them in different ways and opening your mind to more underlying meanings. I would say this was more difficult for me since I really only like the lesson on the creation myths and Thomas Paine.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the Iroquois Creation Myth was the most interesting to me. We even got to create our own version of their creation story afterward. I felt that this was the one time I got to be really creative in this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for a lot of reading, and if you have this professor be prepared for lectures with a small amount of humor. It's a good course to take it has moments where you'll be interested and moments when you'll be a little bored.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a class everyone needs to take because it's beneficial to grammatical growth.

    Course highlights:

    The warm-up/attendance question was always the best part. You get to learn a bit about how your classmates think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you always have your book, syllabus, and schedule because you never know when she'll check your material for a grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you have the option to choose another professor then safe yourself from many nights of stress and wasting your energy on hating her guts. I took the short session and first week of class, she will tell you her class is not easy, and not everyone will pass. Third week, she will email almost everyone in the class telling them she thinks you should drop the course. SHE IS A VERY STRICT GRADER!!!!!! She has favorites and will show them off to everyone else in the class.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn a lot about the history of literature even though she is a B word, the class is interesting I just wish she wasn't so strict.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't do it unless you want to get the lowest grade you've ever gotten in an English course.
