he's a really good professor. Engaging in class discussions and pretty chill but not at all boring.

Workload:

3 essays each worth 20% (gives you over a week to do them but no drafts allowed)
no midterm!!
SUPER easy reading quizzes every two weeks
2 creative projects (not taken s seriously and quite fun to do)
a bit more reading than other sections
final (resembles all other classes)
an Ok grader - not difficult to receive a B or higher if you listen to his feedback

[HUMA 1002] Lithum

I'm shocked at the (lengthy) negative reviews about her. I absolutely loved Zanou for lit hum. I'm writing this at 3am in the middle of writing my paper for CC, and damn, I really miss her class. My CC class is okay, but our discussions in lit hum were much more interesting, and while my CC teacher has a much more student only led discussion approach, I preferred how Zanou would let us discuss a topic/theme and then synthesize the discussion with her ideas. I genuinely found her ideas so interesting and relevant. For example, she connected nostalgia themes in our books and connected it to how nostalgia plays similar roles in the experience of refugees in our current political climate. I also appreciated seeing the play adaption of antigone and how the creators connected themes from a Greek tragedy to police brutality in Ferguson. Maybe it's my tendency to idolize English teachers, but I will honestly carry our discussions with me. I was prepared to hate the core (and still do in principle), but she made Lit Hum my most interesting and important class.

not too bad; just be prepared for class discussions and pay attention and you should be fine

If you're a STEM student don't take this class! Eliza is a super inconsiderate Professor who doesn't care a bit about any problems you have. As a freshman, I found this class incredibly stressful and just wanted to kill myself because of her.

Too much

Zach is THE best professor I had freshman year, but even beyond class he is just an immensely caring and considerate person. Class discussion is always interesting, and his midterm is very reasonable and simple. Essays are graded pretty easily. If you want to do well on the essays, go to his office hours and bounce ideas with him and he will offer you good directions to take your essay. If you get Zach, you will end up loving LitHum.

Workload:

3 essays, midterm, SUPER easy reading quizzes every two weeks, final. VERY VERY reasonable and an extremely fair grader.
