    Advice for students:

    I would recommend putting forth an effort in reading every night even though it may be tough. You can also read the book first and if you still don't understand the material, go on sparknotes or cliff notes and read the analysis.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Barilich is a wonderful teacher and he really makes you think. The course opens up your mind and teaches you things about English and Literature that you never could imagine. Those that are acadcemic buffs like me will totally understand.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new English superpower if you will. I learned how to analyze a novel and get to the root of what the author was trying to say through these characters and get a feel for their underlying message. Certain novels like Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison and As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner paint a big picture that you can only see looking through what is overlooked. That is what this course taught me and I'm grateful for it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you choose to take this course (or it is given), you will be just fine. Focus and DO NOT get off track with your work. Mr. Barilich is like a college professor but he will help you as long as you ask. He also won't tell you what you want to hear and he sugar coats NOTHING. This class was fun and worth taking. Barilich has so much to offer you.
