I feel like responding a little bit to the single review that currently stands here. The review worried me, and it almost made me consider switching out of his class, which would have been a mistake! Yes, he lets the students drive much of the discussion, but the things we talk about require nuanced and critical thinking, so at least in my opinion, it wouldn't make much sense for him to just lecture at everyone how we are supposed to read these texts. And the important points are always covered. The discussions we have in class are helpful and memorable, and he pushes students to articulate clearly and defend their points. So yeah, not really an "easy A" type of class if that's what you're looking for. But if you want to be pushed to improve as a student, this is a great class!

hard, but definitely not the worst I've heard of. No pop quizzes or anything weird
