    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my mind and awareness of poetry. Having never appreciated poetry before, I learned how purposefully it is written.

    Analyzing poetry! Having small group discussions stimulated thoughts and allowed for a more creative learning experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the poems. They are all generally very short so it won't take too much time.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Iannini chooses poems that he truly believes can spark students interest and make them want to delve into the world of poetry. He also provides a good baseline to help students who've never been exposed to poetry understand how to interpret it by teaching them about rhyme, meter, etc. He also offers plenty of extra credit to help the struggling students.

    Course highlights:

    I liked that he covered poetry across different time periods and not just any certain type. I learned about a lot more modern poetry because I usually only ever read Shakespeare's sonnets and poetry generally written before the turn of the 20th century; this class renewed my interest in modern and contemporary poetry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the poems and annotate them before class, you often can get extra credit for this, it makes it a lot easier to discuss the poems in class, and provides a lot of groundwork when it comes time to write essays.
