    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher is truly amazing. He is not the kind of teacher to lecture on and on, and he tells you exactly what you need to know for his exams. The exams are all papers and the books that he picked for us to read were very interesting (and I am not a book reader). Also, this course focused on race in the US. It was more of a ungraded debate in class. He lets people speak their minds freely with no judgement and he loves questions. My best advise is to go to every single class because even though he doesn't really take attendance, sometimes he will give you a participation grade which can hurt you in the end. Another tip that I found works is find a friend in that class, split the books and read them together and talk about the books. After you read it, try spark noting it and see how they interpret it. It is a very interesting class and highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course for me were definitely life-changing. The books that we read came from so many different perspective and it was helpful to see life through other people's eyes. It changes the way that I look at people and many of my actions. For instance, the author of one of the books was always made fun of because he was Mexican and he let it affect him throughout his childhood until he realized he was stronger than the way people looked at him and stopped listening to what everyone else had to say and did what was best for him (moving away).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice would be to attend the classes. He does not take attendance, but not only are the classes interesting, but he also will give a small assignment on some classes that count towards participation. Also, read the books, not because you have to, but because they are interesting. You'll thank me in the end.
