Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I for one am not a big fan reading old literature. I have the toughest time understanding their perspective and the language used to write the story. I showed up every single day and listened to her explain what each story was about. I ended up learning more than previously anticipated. I recommend taking the course with Dr. Berni. Super fun lady.
Dr. Berni is amazing! She is funny and brings her own insight into the class. I learned the most about racism and the prejudices held towards minorities in the past. My favorite, most disgusting story is Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle." Learning the horrible truths about the canning industry and what was done to immigrants was a real nightmare that opened my eyes to the reality of the world. What was even more disturbing is that chicken will now be processed in China without inspectors from the FDA present.

Advice for students:
Show up to class and listen to the discussions. Take part of the class discussions even though what you say may not be correct. By committing errors in understanding the story and speaking out, you learn how to understand most of the stories.
