    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to others, as the teacher was very knowledgeable and approachable, which enabled me to learn quite a bit about contemporary american literature in the short semester that I had. The novels, plays, and excerpts of poems and short stories that we read from were all very engaging and entertaining. The language of the reads were easy to understand and fun to analyze as they are contemporary and not the standard archaic old English novels that we have all grown so accustomed to reading.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course itself would hands down be the several short stories that we read during the semester. One that I remember thoroughly enjoying was Everything Stuck to Him by Raymond Carver and A&P from Pigeon Feathers by John Updike. In addition, we also read several longer works, including The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien and the play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller. Along with the many fascinating reads, we also had the opportunity to hone our critical analysis and writing skills in the 2-3 papers we wrote throughout the course, including the critical paper at the end of the semester.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a relatively standard English class, meaning that you will not be required to do to much outside work besides the occasional reading and essays. The class can be more fun and engaging than your typically English class due to both the subject matter and the teacher, so I highly recommend to all that you participate actively and frequently in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the class. The teacher was very hard of hearing and if he did not understand the words of what you said, he just walks away. Also, he says no quiz tomorrow, but then gives a quiz the next day. Leaves many questions unanswered. Final was very easy. With my class, he was very oblivious to cell phones, but I heard from other classes that he is harsh on the cell phone policy. My class cheated a lot, so I don't understand why the personality flip flop. Books were great if you choose to read them. He does usually show the movie instead.

    Course highlights:

    Mostly read books. Not like other English classes where you analyze too much. Very basic stuff. Read Death of a Salesman, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, and a war book that has a title that is slipping my mind at the moment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Check to see who the teacher is first. This teacher was hard to work with.
