    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend it because the course in and of itself is interesting. Most importantly, though, I would recommend it because Dr. Zimbalist is a wonderful, very talented instructor. She makes class engaging with discussions as opposed to one-way professor to student lectures. Also, Dr. Zimbalist is passionate about her subject matter, which only contributes more to the value of the class. I'd recommend this class highly; you'll learn a lot and have a great instructor!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the various aspects of Anglo Saxon culture, particularly that it is not all war and conquest. For example, the Exeter Book elegies show an individualized view of Anglo Saxons that shows a focus on emotions like sadness and longing. Also, the Riddles found in the Exeter Book show that Anglo Saxon culture had a fun, lighthearted side to it. Who doesn't love a puzzling riddle with double-meanings?

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to show faithful and on-time class attendance. Being in class is a way of both learning and "studying" material that you could need to work on or be tested on later. Going to this class is far from a waste of time. You will learn, enjoy interesting feedback from your professor and classmates, and learn the skills needed to succeed in the class.
