i love this man so much. half our class from lit hum signed up for his cc because we didn't wanna leave him. if you can take his class, you should. he's very kind and a very good teacher. someone I'll remember forever from Columbia. don't miss out!

I took Larry Jackson's Lit Hum class last year as well as his CC course this year. He is an excellent lecturer but thrives at facilitating discussion. He knows when and what to add and how to direct conversation. This quality did not translate to the online environment perfectly, although it was still very engaging. If you are taking one of his classes in person, you will not regret it. He is very knowledgeable and approachable, top 3 profs I have yet to find for sure!

I had Larry as my LitHum teacher first semester, and he was fantastic. Truly one of the best teachers I’ve ever had - he facilitated in class discussions really well, and made the texts interesting and memorable. On top of being a great professor he’s also just a really nice guy. Really understanding, really kind. Everyone in my section loved him - he only taught for the fall and we were all really sad to part with him. Highly recommend!
