I love Professor King. He's really intelligent and gives a lot of insight into the literature aside from the standard stuff the Core office wants him to say. He's really open to class discussions and the ideas students bring. Plus, he'll question or challenge what students say so the discussion is actually substantial, not just a person speaking to get their participation points.
He's also good with extensions if you ask for them, just don't get carried away and ask for too many; in his own words "i don't like feeling like i'm being taken advantage of."
He allows rewrites so take advantage of those to help your grade. i've also found that they help me understand the text better so i recommend doing at least one
Enjoy your year with Bruce
