    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was focused on literature of the Holocaust. Anyone interested in this subject would definitely enjoy the material covered as well as the delivery of instruction. It isn't a slack class by any means, but it was well worth the effort put forth. A wide variety of literature was covered (novels, poems, movies) so the class was always changing pace in a positive way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was simply having an excuse to spend hours pouring over literature. Each week a new selection was chosen, and I truly enjoyed each one. One way we analyzed the literature was through prompted journaling which I thoroughly enjoyed. Dr. Jedele made us complete a hearty amount of assignments, but each one was meaningful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings. I cannot emphasize enough how important this is. You may be able to scrape by a few assignments without actually reading, but you will be completely lost in most assignments. This course can truly teach you bushels of information about the Holocaust and yourself, but no true learning will happen without keeping up on the selections.
