    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has already taught me a lot and I'm only halfway done. I've learned how to analyze and take a part pieces of literature to find hidden meanings and literary techniques that I wouldn't have noticed before.

    Course highlights:

    Learning literary techniques and finding them in literature have been one of the big ideas throughout the course. I love how I don't just read a story now, I look for things like symbols that the author may have included for a purpose or message to readers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the books you're assigned. He will do reading checks to make sure you've been reading the book and at the end there's a final summative essay on each book.
