    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hoppe is both knowledgeable and passionate about what he teaches. Whether you are leaning about the very beginnings of American literature and Walt Whitman to the Beats, you're in for one wild ride. You'll walk out of his course with far more than a grade; you'll leave with an experience.

    Course highlights:

    -No one is safe from being questioned about the material in Professor Hoppe's course. While this may seem intimidating at first, it should help you to stay motivated to stay on top of your coursework. You will gain a much better understanding of the works of literature that you go over in class because if you don't pay attention it could cost you some points as well as pride. -You will more than likely come to both appreciate and understand poetry. Professor Hoppe helps his students in any way he can so that they can understand the material. Before taking his course I was very reluctant to do any work regarding poetry. I left with more than I bargained for. You will learn that a poem is seldom ever nonsensical, that the poems themselves are like paintings created by artists. As the saying goes, a poem is a machine made of words.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading outside of class and never, ever show up late. Professor Hoppe is incredibly helpful, but one thing he is very strict on is puntuality. If you arrive on time and read the literature outside of class you will do well.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because I like how she will ask if we need any help and give us ideas. She speaks to the class about readings that we are going over rather than just talking the whole time, it's more engaging.

    Course highlights:

    She understands that we still have high school work to juggle and makes very reasonable assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate and speak during class about the assigned readings
