    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to every student no matter what their major is.

    Course highlights:

    Being in African American Literature has taught me that there are many trials and tribulations to many writers in this world. But the author and or poets of African American Literature has helped the english literature, and to acknowledge the obstacles a writers faces due to racial background.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When being in this course, attention is key. Paying attention in class can assure a passing grade. Also being in class and on time will help when being in this course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because not only is it considered an easy course to help boost your GPA but it's very informative on some of the African American people that were not really mentioned in the history books.

    Course highlights:

    This course not only opened my eyes as a reader but as a writer as well. When you think about literature classes you think they're going to be boring and unfulfilling or not beneficial to your life or future career because you think the knowledge of these characters and stories are just people and stories but you learn to evaluate deeper into it and you learn that it's about life. Some of the stories you can truly relate to. Some make you more apreciative of what you have rather than what you don't and some make you feel just a bit smarter for gaining more knowledge that someone else might not have because you'd have to take the course to learn about people who weren't really mentioned in history books.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When your teacher asks you to read a chapter before coming to class, READ IT. Because when it boils down to it, that's information you're going to better understand when you come in class rather than allowing it to be new information and you waste time not knowing.
