    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There is a lot of reading involved in this class, so if you don't have time to read much, you should not take this class.

    The highlights were the stories we had to read. It was a variety of everything out there. I learned how to structure stories, poems, etc. I also learned about writers in the 19th century and how hard it was form them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was very bad at communicating what he meant. He would frequently change his mind about what students were meant to do or how to do a project. He was very confusing. He wouldn't explain things well and then would not understand why so many students had questions. He also refused to give perfect grades when they were deserved and instead decided to take points off for things that were unimportant. He was however, helpful in that he refunded me for a project that he told me I would be refunded for and then said that I shouldn't have paid for things even though previously he had said that I could. He was overall very difficult to comprehend. The class itself was different than what it was when students signed up. It was completely different. The book that was up for the class was incorrect. The class was more so about Mystories and Zora Neale Hurston than about theories of literature. It wasn't so much hard as hard to understand because he was bad at communicating and hard to do well in because he was such an unfair grader.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that with dedication and hard work you can pass any class. I also learned that I hate group projects and I learned more about Zora Neale Hurston. I also learned about what a mystory is. It is very confusing and doesn't really make sense in a lot of ways.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need it for your major if you are like me, but try not to take it if it has anything to do with a mystory or if you do just work on it regardless of how confusing it is. Also, be careful about picking groups for the group project.
