    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Johnson chose great text to analyze in class, so you'll love that if you're a literature fanatic like me. As a person, he's great; he genuinely cares about his students and truly wants to know how you're doing. His humor works for some people, but it may not work for others. The class really depends on you doing the reading since it is so heavily based on discussion about the text. The essays are not too difficult if you follow the guidelines and stick to the prompt.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the reading, and I feel like we really dove deep into the text we analyzed in class. Most of the reading is done on your own, while the discussion happens in class. My analytical reading improved throughout the course, as well as my annotations, since this is a big part of the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the annotations for the reading! Johnson does not consider it reading if you have not annotated, so make sure you do that. He will check often and this counts towards your grade. keep up with the reading for the most part of you want to do well on the essays. Make sure you meet the minimum page count for the essays or you will fail. Otherwise, the class isn't too difficult.
