Pretty easy, overall.
The Grand Challenge Learning class structure is unique and this makes the class very interesting. Every week there is a lecture from a different professor, tying in their knowledge of their field into the overall theme of inequality. The diversity of their areas of expertise and the freshness of a new speaker each week gives the atmosphere of attending TED lectures and contributes to a broad, interesting and insightful discussion of the theme of inequality.
The professors in the course are from a wide range of areas of expertise, and thus each speaker brings a unique aspect of inequality into an ever broadening and enlightening picture of inequality in our society today. Baseball, public housing, prisons, and restaurant workers are all examples of how many different themes play parts in the overall depiction of inequality. This class really opened my eyes and gave me a good idea of how inequality affects the people around me on both the individual scale and the global scale.

Advice for students:
I was not in the advanced composition course, so the workload was really just a couple readings and a quick summary of those readings each week, which was very light compared to my other classes. This let me really enjoy the class for the information and insight it gave.
