    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The material is a great for anyone interested in learning about American literature, and the assignments are challenging but easy to get done. That being said, not all of the readings are going to be looked at in the class itself aside from the ones that will be discussed. I think that

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the course was one assignment where we had to do it in an online presentation. You could do it as a podcast, a movie, or even a parody--we had the freedom to choose how to present it. It was a fresh break away from the typical paper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't have to read everything on the selection list. Focus on the selections that will be covered the most, then look at the ones that you want to use in your assignment for the week.
