    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an excellent course for learning ancient stories and writings. You learn how ancient civilizations thought and what they believed. You also learn study skills that will be essential to your college course work.

    Course highlights:

    One of the lessons I learned was I must research information myself, rather than taking someone on his or her word. It is important that one thinks for one's self and decide if information matches reality, rather than copying another person's worldview because he or she is in a position of authority.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework and take notes. If you do not, you will not pass the class, let alone excell. Also, take what you learn in Ancient Literature and apply it to Ancient Civilizations. The two classes are meant to be taken in tandem because the literature offers insights into why ancient civilizations acted as they did.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The materials present excellent insights into what ancient civilizations believed and how they thought, and what lessons we can learn from the stories. George's teaching and testing methods are difficult; but he forces his students to think about the materials for themselves, rather than spoon-feeding what he thinks the students should think.

    Course highlights:

    Ancient Literature helped me to develop the skills I needed to evaluate the content of reading materials (extraordinarily useful when conducting research) and their author(s). I also developed a foundation for developing my religious and biblical views.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First, do all of the reading. If you do not do the homework, you will not pass the class. Second, take thorough notes during class, and highlight or underline quotes while reading.

    Hours per week:

    Advice for students:

    Use Sparknotes even if you read the book. Use sparknotes! Not Kidding.
