Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because of the life skills learned through discussing literature. After everyone shares the same reading the interpretations are vastly different. Once these ideas are shared with others, one develops a less bias view and can learn to understand how others view the world differently and to accept that. Cultural differences was one of the main topics of the course and this has allowed the students to be further educated on the world and how there is more out there than what we are used to.
The highlights of the course would have to be the discussions. After every reading the class would discuss his or her interpretation or important thoughts they had about the story. From this the students learned how to understand others opinions and what might cause their views to differentiate. I learned about the lives of other cultures or people from other backgrounds and it has helped me learn to not judge so quickly or view the opinions of others as irrelevant.

Advice for students:
I would advise any student taking this course to read every story assigned. Though sometimes it seems he gives too much to read it will be discussed in class and you do not want to be lost in the discussion. Enjoy the class and put effort into the major essays, he is a strict grader but you get the grade you deserve.
