    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher is great and she really knows the material and how to help the students understand it better.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be reading the novels because she picks some really interesting books. Also watching the movie versions of some of the books and comparing them in class discussions was insightful and fun. In this course I learned how to write synthesis essays and I improved my essay writing overall. She taught us how to maximize our annotations to get the most out of the novels as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you to be well prepared for the reading because once you finish one book you'll probably have an essay coming and after that it's right on to the next novel. The reading assignments are not too long but they are assigned day after day sometimes. Also, be ready for weekly annotations checks.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My teacher was absolutely brilliant, he went in depth for every single piece of work we read, with an open mind to other interpretations on essays and tests. Overall, the best English teacher I have ever had.

    Course highlights:

    Best part of the course was definitely reading Dante's "Inferno" because our teacher was a dark minded man who tore apart at the imagery and opened our minds to all of the tools being used in this work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ READ READ and read some more, you can never annotate too much and you can never go to far into the text.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course. It was a great experience reading the novels and the teacher add a lot of fun activities to the course.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest things about this course are the midterm and final essay. These require a lot of research and writing. What I learned from this course is how to write synthesis essays and annotated bibliographies. I learned how to better annotate my books and found the best databases to research critical articles about the novels we read.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading and essay writing as well as quizzes over what you read in the form of a body paragraph. You have to be prepared for the weekly annotation checks because she expects you to annotate.
