    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, especially with this professor, because it helped me become re-introduced to ideas and analysis skills I had not reviewed in a while. In addition, it helped introduce me to the learning method of listening to my peers' ideas rather than being lectured wholly on the ideas and lesson plan of the professor.

    Course highlights:

    I gained information about mystery literature and making certain to pinpoint particular symbolism in a story that normally may be overlooked. In addition, it also taught me the idea that ideas and interpretations are not slimmed down to single specific angles. For example, in the story, The Life You Save May Be Your Own, Flannery O' Connor tells a story about Mr. Shiflet who chooses to take advantage of an elderly woman and her daughter to trick them into giving him their car. Even though the story described the girl as a special needs individual, the description changed and conveyed sexual connotations because the protagonist sexualizes her and makes the reader see her as a possible partner to marry. His slight guilt conveys the genuity of her sexuality. Before this class, I had not been introduced to the art of twisting a story's interpretation from the direct meaning into the complete opposite interpretation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keeping up with the reading assignments is crucial to achieve getting a good grade. Despite this course not being too difficult overall, it requires a lot of reading to be successful in class. Otherwise, you will be lost when you walk in to hear a lesson. This professor calls on people randomly to make sure they actually read the material.
