Not too easy. Not too difficult.
As an English major, I tend to enjoy English classes more than non-majors. However, this particular class was exceptionally fantastic. The content and readings covered were fascinating, as the course focused primarily on technology and theories of technology. While our papers were loosely based on this topic, we were given a great deal of freedom when it came to choosing what we wrote about.
The professor's feedback on each of my drafts was very thorough; however, rather than only picking me apart on grammar and editing, she really pushed me to improve the content of my papers and challenged me to sharpen my critical thinking skills.

Advice for students:
Make sure you put a lot of effort into your papers. Because there are so few of them, they are weighted pretty heavily, and while you are allowed to revise one of them, a bad paper grade could potentially drag down your overall grade significantly. Also, this is one of those classes where, in a pinch, you can probably just skim the reading, since the professor doesn't grade heavily on participation. As long as you can contribute to the conversation once in a while and turn your work in on time, she's pretty content.
