Creamer, Paul
French Lit of the Middle Ages

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Creamer's course was by far the best I've taken at Columbia. Although his teaching style may sometimes remind you of first or second grade, he will impart a great deal of knowledge and you'll have fun. Kinda nerdy sense of humor (you'll laugh because he's so ridiculous at times), but endearing and keeps you awake and interested during class. Cares a lot about his students - truly wants you to learn, be interested, and succeed in his class. Extremely lenient about paper deadlines (but he says that's different in undergrad courses). Class included a trip to the Cloisters - a wonderful opportunity to follow him around as he spoke at great length about the art - he has lots of interesting info to share.

Workload:

Two papers (if I remember correctly) of reasonable length - he seems to like giving good grades on them. Midterm and final very reasonable with no surprises - you really have to know the stuff, but if you do they're not a problem.
