Professor Duranti is one of my favorite professors. He teaches in a way where you actually learn the material instead of just memorizing it and forgetting it. Showing up to discussion is extremely important because that is where you will go over the readings. You don't necessarily have to read every book he assigns, just read the important parts that are relevant to lecture. There are no midterms or finals. Pop quizzes and tests only, which are usually one or two questions each. Overall, this class is interesting and fairly easy because you learn the material and retain it, so you don't have to study that much.

Duranti is a nice guy, but it is VERY hard to understand him. Nothing in this class was consistent. The material was very repetitive and when asked to evaluate on it, there was not much to go off of. Nothing was expanded on in class. Everything went on side tangents. TA never knew had to grade anything right and when asked for a re-evaluation nothing would get done about it. Speaking of the grading system, it was terribly set up and your grade is based off 60 percent online quizzes and 40 percent final paper. FInal paper does not get explained in class and you will most likely get an F if you can't read their mind. I dont recommend taking this class because to end up with a bad grade in a class that should be fun and inspiring is very disappointing.
