    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Bethany Hunter is an enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about literature. Class time is spent in discussion about the assigned reading. She leaves a lot of the reader's responses up to interpretation, so as long as you do the reading and put in the effort you will get good grades. She takes the time to interpret difficult texts if students are having a hard time following.

    Course highlights:

    American Literature I covers a lot of historical documents in the first half of the course. During this period of the course you learn about analyzing works and testing the credibility of the authors. The second half of the course cover a lot of transcendentalists' writings and everyone's favorite - Poe. There is only a little fiction found at the end of the course. This is more about critical reading and understanding cultural contexts than fiction.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a literature course, so expect to read and write. There is usually an assigned reading before every class and a required typed page response. There are two essays and two creative projects. The creative projects are easy A's to help boost grades for people who struggle with keeping up with reading assignments. The essays require the most work, but it is not excessive. Ultimately, stay on top of your assignments and engage in discussions. She only asks for effort and understands not everyone is a literary critic.
