    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are enjoy to read about 15 books a semester and write essays around 10 pages for each book, then you will be perfect for this class. She grades very tough, but at the same time, she will let you turn in something a second time, with corrections, for extra credit towards the assignment.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to strengthen and expand my thoughts in an essay. I used to just write a typical 5 paragraph paper, about 3 pages, now I can write 10 pages, with all of the pages having meaning, not just filler content.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to analyze the meaning of text very well, you do not need to have the same opinion as the teacher, but you need to be able to back it up, whether that is with quotes, historical proof from the time the book was written, etc.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend this course although it's not for those who like to get away with doing the minimum things required. The course gives you choices of many classics to read and have a better understanding of the time period as well as the literature itself, if there are any that love to write and analyze these types of literature then this is the course for you as there are many short essays.

    Course highlights:

    I believe the highlights of the course was the reading, there are multiple projects and wonderful books to read. At first I wasn't so sure I'd be interested but with the lesson material it really draws you in and makes you curious of what the author was trying to get across.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep on top of your work! Making schedules to complete your reading on time as well as knowing how to organize your essays is key to this course, knowing your vocabulary from the books helps as well.
