American Literature, 1900 to 1945
Fall 2021 - Professor Huehls is one of my favorite professors in the English department. His lectures are saturated with humor, and I appreciate how he values diversity in perspectives among students. He always provides numerous interpretations of the readings and allows us to make our own inferences about the text with the provided information, as opposed to enforcing one view upon us. We did have short quizzes every week, but they were brief plot questions; I'm normally a bad quiz/test taker, but doing well on his quizzes was more than manageable. That being said, he's definitely not an easy essay grader, but I do think he's fair. He's immensely helpful as long as you reach out and don't wait until the last minute. I highly recommend going to his office hours, as they've provided me a lot of guidance about how to approach the two papers for the quarter. Overall, I really enjoyed Huehls's class and found the experience rewarding.
