    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Although this is a required course, I would not recommend this professor. He isn't a bad teacher, in fact, he's pretty good at explaining the material. However, his lectures are very boring and so are the reading assignments. So, if you do end up taking this professor, do not take him early in the morning. You might fall asleep.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is that I was able to learn more about folklore from around the world. It was interesting to see how similar a lot of the stories were despite originating from very different places. Learning about Egyptian poetry was also interesting because many of them were about love. Although the place and time they were written are different from the world I live in, the overall message of the poetry was very relatable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the reading! All writing assignments and pop quizzes will be based on them. Also, start the reading in advance. Dr. Whitaker often assigns a lot of pages so starting the night before class won't cut it.
