    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Within the course we read 6 books.for the semester. I do not usually enjoy reading, but this class completely made me rethink that. Dr. Strait makes you think about a book in a way you never thought possible and can really relate each on to our own lives. I really learned alot from this course and grown in various ways.

    Course highlights:

    I gained better critical thinking skills when reading completely unusual books for my own enjoyment. It allowed me to appreciate and understand different concepts and lessons each of the authors we read from had. In almost every book you read, you can find a deeper reality and clarity in your own life, even though it was a quite small discovery, it was new.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to be caught up with the reading the professor assigns. The study guide questions do help you understand better and will show up on the exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Penner is an engaging and wonderful professor. I took her this spring for American Lit II as well. She loves to hear your feedback and pushes you past your comfort zone to learn as much as you can. She is super nice as well. This course was fun and engaging and had a nice broad scope with the different reading we did.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different types of literature from different time periods and cultures. All of the selections were very different. They were challenging and fun if you will let them be. I learned so much about the culture through them as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would totally take Lit and Culture with Penner! If you work hard and read the books, you will enjoy it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because Dr. Penner is a brilliant teacher whose energy is contagious. Even so, she makes it her mission to connect with students on their level, making the class both exciting and intellectually stimulating as well as practical.

    Course highlights:

    How to connect aspects of literature to real-life situations and current events, as well as looking at literature critically from a Christian Perspective.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard for the tests, take plenty of notes in class, and listen closely to everything she says. That said, take some time away from simply looking at it as a class to take and truly take the lessons from class to the outside world.
