    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Cashier-Paz is a passionate, spirited, and highly engaging English professor. I can not imagine a better person to teach the very first class of an English degree. She is passionate about the importance of words and of being able to express ideas in writing. She teaches the theories in a way that assures there are many ways of being "right" in interpreting a work of Literature. Best of all, she encourages us to speak, to debate, and to actively learn.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a thorough knowledge of what is to come in later Literature courses. 500-word limits taught me how to significantly cut down my writing so that only the most important points were left said.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    We read one book the entire semester: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. That isn't to say it is an easy class, however: about ten theories will be learned and applied to passages of Huck Finn and to scholarly essays (which are extremely dense). I would read over the passages again before each class, as there are written responses assigned the first ten minutes.

    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.

    Course highlights:

    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:

    Have plenty of time to set aside ofor this class.
