    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Margaritis is wickedly smart, and he offers a rich and thorough introduction to the works of Shakespeare. We went through some works that were slightly more off the beaten path, which was very refreshing!

    Course highlights:

    This class helped make Shakespeare much more accessible to me! It was awesome to be able to get to a point where I could read the plays and follow the plot while making connections and analysis as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dr. Margaritis holds his students to a high standard, so be prepared to put in the work if you want to get the grade!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was fun, though the performance project was a bit stressful.

    Course highlights:

    Mostly I learned to do scansion and how to paraphrase. I also learned a bit about how to stay calm in front of an audience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep and open mind and do the reading and journal. You do not want to do it all last minute. Also, the performance project requires that you perform a scene with a few other people. This will require you to find time to rehearse outside of class. Don't take this course if you have a really busy schedule.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The way that he teaches is different than anything than I have ever experienced. You can tell his pure love for the subject that he is teaching which makes it very enjoyable for his students. He has so much information to give and his sense of humor makes the course even more amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a new experience

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to study for an exam when I didn't have a study guide. I learned how to take the professors idea in a lecture and out them into annotations in my book which was a very good skill for me to pick up and it will help me throughout my college career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading that comes with this course, and with it being Shakespeare some of it is hard to understand. What I did was go on spark notes where they have "no fear Shakespeare" where they put the real text next to the modern interpretation of it which helped with my comprehension of the plays we were studying.
