    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Bouchard's Robert Frost course was one of the most enjoyable, gripping, fun courses I've ever taken. Whether you generally enjoy and appreciate literature as I do or it's something out of your comfort zone, Professor Bouchard will meet you where you're at and make material humorous, poignant and interesting. You will leave this class a better person for having encountered excellent poetry with the instruction of an excellent person.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read poetry in a way which was not a constant search in vain for some kind of "hidden meaning." I learned how to read it in a way which was slow, careful and concerned with detail. I learned how to read poetry not only as singular poems, but as sections, as books, as periods of life. I learned how to write about poetry effectively and creatively.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend class to really experience and engage with the poetry. Read the poems before class to get a taste for them. Read the biography and take notes - they'll help you significantly on quizzes. Listen to what Professor Bouchard has to say. He's one of the smartest, wisest, wittiest people I've ever met and I feel as though I am a better person for having encountered him in an academic setting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My poetry class has allowed me to become a more proficient writer in addition to becoming a better student. I am encouraged to think outside the box which has allowed me to look at assignments differently.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course involve having the ability to create original works every single class. There were a variety of prompts given to the class and with an emphasis of having peers grade your work, it allowed for beneficial feedback.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you have to be willing to fail as a poet. Many of the poems you write are going to be torn apart, but ultimately it is going to make you a better writer.
