    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend this course to anyone. We all live in America, and reading literature specific to our country broadens and sharpens our views of our countries history and future and how far we have truly come.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading authors like Emerson, Lincoln, Faulkner and Hawthorne and seeing American Literature evolve over time

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, don't procrastinate and put time and effort into your writing.
