    Pretty easy, overall.

    I liked the seminars, and the reading material- which was interesting.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to stay on top of assignments. Do the readings early in order to have time to write your papers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the curriculum is very interesting and Mrs. Tenenbaum is very helpful. I would occasionally stay after class to work on essay's with her.

    Course highlights:

    The assignments were definitely challenging, but in a good way. I came out of this class being able to write an essay in an hour (previously it took more like a week). Mrs. Tenenbaum gradually gets you to write the essays faster and faster. We studied books such as Writing with Style by Trimble and 50 essays. We also studied works like allegory of the cave (which was the most difficult).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get lots of help. I learned a quarter of the way through the class that the best thing to do when you get a new assignment is to go straight to the tutoring center. After I would get help from tutors in starting the essay, I would go to the teacher and make sure I was doing the right thing. For each assignment I would go the the tutoring center twice and go to the teacher twice.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Don't need a self-study because instructor will tell you clearly what she needs, what should we do on major papers.

    Course highlights:

    Before, I had just literal understanding of the text. Now I read it very closely, very slowly, so I can think about what I've just read, explore the interpretations. I makes your reading more interesting, efficient and critical.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay active. Teachers prefer attendance. Try to answer every questions instructor give you in homework when you are reading. If you have answer you will nail tomorrow class.
