Comments on the course

Good way to get a hass in over the summer. Hard but not terrible.

Course Content

We read 2 books. The Plague by Albert Camus and God's Bits of Wood. There were 3 mini essays (1 per week) that were 1-2 pages each, with a longer essay due at the very end. Course was entirely online with no lectures or required meetings, so you could do it anytime that worked for you.

Comments on the professor

Dr. Straker is an extremely harsh grader. On the first assignment I put in a ton of effort and got a C. Then a B on the next one. Then another C. But by some miracle I passed the course with an A- at the end. I think he tries to scare off some students at first but them compensates in the end with very nice grading and extra credit. So if you get hammered with bad grades at the start don't worry too much, that's just how he does things.
