    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Baumgartner's passion is contagious. He is always prepared to have mature conversations about subject material with his students, and never condescends to assert his authority over us. I have had lengthy discussions about gender roles, female sexuality, and environmental issues with him, and he always treats me as an intellectual equal. He makes every subject interesting with his excitement for teaching and writing, and I would highly recommend his courses (even if he does assign quite a bit of homework).

    Course highlights:

    In my particular English101 course, we analyzed the story of Little Red Riding Hood and its real-life parallels (men=hunters, women=hunted). Baumgartner introduced me to what is now my favorite short-story, "The Company of Wolves", and kept me endlessly interested in what could've easily been an outdated fairy tale. We also discussed the way women are equated with meat (in his words, are "objectified and fragmented"), which opened my eyes to an entirely new genre of sexism in mainstream media. I could feel myself grow as a writer because of my sheer passion for what I was speaking about, and emerged from the class as a more well-rounded individual.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE HOMEWORK. There is no way to fake it in Baumgartner's class. The readings or writing assignments he gives are essential to the next lesson, and you will be completely lost if you slack.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    you need to read the text book, and do the homework. Attendance is very important.
