Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was fantastic if you love American Literature, it really covers a wide range, as well as time period of American Literature and all of the books assigned are interesting. Mr. Bradley is transcending in that he is able to tie the old traditions of literature and bring it to his students in a fun and exciting modern way. The course does include mild writing but there is also a lot of film study on plays and other great works.
Through this course you will learn how to effectively use literary terminology beyond the basics that you learn freshman or sophomore year of high school. This course teaches you how to be an eloquent writer while also teaching you how to interpret and analyze excerpts and texts. The highlight of the course was watching the films after finishing reading and analyzing the text as a class. The films provide an unique third perspective and we watch multiple versions of the same film to really try and understand how different producers analyzed and interpreted the text.

Advice for students:
The teacher is very understanding but it is very important to check the course website. Mr. Bradley puts almost everything necessary to succeed in this course on his website so remember to check that regularly to avoid any late assignments or failed tests. Also, make sure you read the works! Not only is it interesting and fun but the course calls for in-depth analysis of the works and while schmoop or cliffnotes are great to use as a study tool, they cannot replace the full experience of reading a novel or work on your own!
