This class is an easy A for a Writing 2. 4 writing assignments - 3 of which are essays - and 2 midterms. As long as you work hard on the essays, you should be fine. Be sure to go to office hours and have someone peer review your essay before you turn it in! Collab with others and share notes for the midterms.

Prof Carter's Intro to Buddhism class is very enjoyable. However, you might not feel like you learn much, because every class is run like discussion where you have to participate with your thoughts and opinions (about the assigned readings). Any lecture he gives is super short and just serves as a gateway into that day's discussion. In any case, he is a good facilitator of discussion.

Writing II component was three papers, the last one being a 10-page research paper. No midterm, easy final (passage analysis). So you will be very busy with this class only at three times basically. Reading load is small for a GE. Lecture/section participation is 30% of the grade. Would highly recommend taking this if you need Writing II

I took him for Korean M60 and Korean 177. I got a B+ in both class (which I deserved). I never did all the readings. He's a generous grader. His lectures are boring its hard to listen to his accent. He gives you 4 short papers to turn in, in which you can choose the readings you want to cover. So you really don't have to do all the reading. The final is either a research paper 6-8 pages or in class essay writing which you are given 6 essay prompts and you have to write 3. He gives you 12 possible essay prompts for the finals.

His classes aren't hard as long as you do some of the readings and have a general understanding of Korean history. His lectures are boring but the information does help you when you write the 4 short papers and final. If you're lazy its still do-able to pass. He really wants to help.
