    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very challenging for me because it involved writing essays in a 50 minute time period. Professor Berkeley is an awesome person but don't expect her to go easy. Honors in high school weren't that bad, but this is the the type of course you would expect to call honors.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting thing we learned in this class was the psychological approach to literature. Another fun thing was the squibs, 5 little creative papers we had to write and were 5% of our final grade.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are confident in your ability to write well in a short period of time then go for it. As long as you read what you're supposed to and can write a good essay then you'll be fine.

    Course Overview:

    The course as clear and helpful without being completely overwhelming.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it, as always have open contact with the professor. Office hours and meetings after class are key!
