Pretty easy, overall.
I expected this class to be very boring. Reading Shakespeare can often times seem dull or hard to read for many people, including myself. Much to my surprise, this was my favorite class I have ever taken at Moraine Valley Community College. The professor, Dr. Dow, is very knowledgable about this subject. He is also the head of the entire English department at the school. Dr. Dow allows every student to be creative with the assignments and class activities.
The best part about this class is that we watched every single play that we read. The students are expected to read the plays either at home or follow along while watching in class. Dr. Dow stresses that plays are meant to be viewed, not read. He understands that people have a difficult time reading through plays. Viewing the plays made it much easier to understand what was going on. All of his class activities are very engaging and he always makes class fun so that you actually want to participate. There are few projects and papers that are assigned, but the ones that are leave you to be as creative as you would like. He is open to pretty much anything as long as it is on topic.

Advice for students:
Make sure you make it to class as much as you can. He explains a lot of history of the time period during class and makes comments as you view the play so that the class can best understand what is going on. He also gives points for class activities so it is important to show up.
