Comments on the course

The class had good information that is necessary for English majors, but it is also a lot of information you probably already know if you're an English major. There are three papers, four quizzes, and nine discussion posts (most require two replies, but not all).

Course Content

The content relies heavily on the Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms and several selections from three literary genres. Be prepared to do a lot of reading, especially in weeks 5-8.

Comments on the professor

The professor I had was not great. She wasn't familiar with the editions of the short stories and plays we were assigned to read (even grading a student poorly for using an edition of the play without line numbers even though the edition we were given did not have line numbers). She only gives feedback on the papers, so be sure to follow the rubric to the T for the discussion posts.


I highly recommend having annotation software handy. It will help a lot with the close readings necessary for the assignments.
