Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend it because it gives you a background in the literary history of our ancestors, showing the development in their writing that reflects the issues and social standards of the times, and truly shows you how frivolous the plots of the current best selling works truly are.
In this course, I learned that literature should have an underlying message beyond the obvious, one that actually makes you think and see the world in a different light, taking historical events and making them better understood to students by making a story that's better followed by students- the CRUCIBLE- how religious standards were-the SCARLET LETTER- and have evolved, and the significance of how the American dream used to be- the GREAT GATSBY.

Advice for students:
Always do the reading, so you can depend on your own brain to know the answers, and not be relying on other students to be able to tell you them; the reading is not hard unless your brain is distracted, the language is easy enough for a middle school student to understand- if there are words you don't know, look in the footnotes or a dictionary. Pay attention and put away your phone, the teacher has more important things to tell you than facebook does.
