    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is extremely passionate about her job, and she enables her students to think outside the box. You do many different readings, but she specifies which sections of the books she wants you to read. The discussions that arise from the readings are all entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the dark sides of fairy tales. I also learned about Kafka's "The Metamorphosis," and the class took a trip to watch Shakespeare's, "The Crucible." We also read several short stories to help increase our thinking level. I learned about Poe's theory on short stories, which made reading them a bit simpler, but not too much. However the teacher does not ask much of her students, all you need to do is pay attention, and if possible participate in the discussions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to enjoy discussions because you will gain a new insight to stories you did not pay much attention to in the past. You also need to enjoy the readings assigned, but it is normally not too much, and the reading are always interesting. Finally, this class is great if you enjoy having fun because Mrs. Trela is a fun teacher!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's likely to introduce you to literature you've not read in high school-- it's going to be a challenge and challenge your thinking by providing a world view-- very exciting stuff.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the postcolonial literature that we covered most of all-- there was beautiful writing and challenging stories. I learned a lot that put other books I'd read into another perspective.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the reading! It is a great deal of reading but you'll regret being late and behind in the course material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Tela is an energetic and passionate teacher. She challenges you to think critically about the pieces you read, and to relate them to each other. She is also very knowledgeable about the pieces, and their authors, and the time periods they were written in.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was finally getting to read Arabian Nights. I had wanted to read this for a while, and was excited when we got to it. It is very interesting and has many layers.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read everything she assigns. Make genuine opinions on these pieces before you come to class. She asks for your opinion on the pieces. Don't give cookie cutter, or general responses. Be detailed.
