    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was wonderful because it was only a few times a week. The outside of class work was spaced out nicely and very self explanatory. The readings were also interesting and kept you on edge while reading it. Professor Fort always knew how to keep the class going and kept us talking instead of listening to an entire lecture.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course, although some despised it, was the final project at the end. The project was to look further into your favorite piece read in that class. You had to learn more about the author and look up other's perceptions of the work. I personally found that very interesting ad intriguing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, make sure to do the assignments as soon as he assigns them. DO NOT procrastinate otherwise you will regret it later. Once you get behind it is hard to get caught back up, even with the generous "Get out of jail free" cards that he gives you for late work.

    Stay on top of your assigned assignments otherwise you will fall behind. Also, read each reading assignment because they are usually interesting and will help you out when it comes to take the quiz. Another tip is to have a notebook and pencil in hand when reading, so you can jot down information from the story.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was taught in a nice and easy manner which made it easy to learn new material, the weekly course load was not bad at all. It was manageable with other daily obligations and his grading system was fair.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn to critically analyze different styles of writing and find reasons why those writings worked for their time period. It also helped in raising my writing ability with weekly discussion posts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you stay on top of the weekly discussion posts so you can earn most of the weekly points. That way it will help buffer the midterm and final exam scores if you tend to do poorly on exams.
