    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot in this class, not just about literature but about history and the course of events that lead to the language we have now and the societal expectations we have now. The course related a lot to modern day, and Prof King made the readings understandable, so we were more focused on what the text meant rather than trying to figure out what it said.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight came in the Shakespearian unit, as we learned to appreciate puns dating back to the 1600s, and I found myself able to understand Shakespeare with ease for the first time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you complete the readings before class. You don't have to fully understand them at all, but if the whole class comes in completely clueless as to what the text was even about and she suspects you didn't read, she will give quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very easy! I recommend taking it not only because you have to but because it provides a historical background on all of the famous 17th century poets, Beowulf, and a great lecture of Macbeth!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write poems in many rhyme schemes. I learned about Macbeth and Beowulf. I learned a few pretty cool aspects that can help you in the real world like being grammatically correct, taking notes and so much more!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always take notes! Study! Study! Study! Re write your notes, this gives you a chance for studying!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is challenging, but it definitely helped me get out of my comfort zone. It was really interesting, because the stories we read required you to think about what you were reading in a different way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were learning about the Middle Ages, Renaissance and the the Enlightenment. Each time period had different literature from that time period and how it reflected the ideals of the people living in that time. I learned how to "close read", which is something Dr. Taylor taught us. It's reading, but really picking a part what you are reading.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate what ever you do! Read the stories carefully and know the history of the time period to connect it to the story.
