Spring 2019 - Prof Underwood is very nice and grades fairly easily, but in this class, she has timed writing for the midterm and final. These are easily upwards of 10 pages of timed writing, and while it is not hard to obtain a good grade, it can be grueling. If you are used to writing papers out of class, it will be a rude awakening. I only mark this as a major complaint simply because the class would be vastly more enjoyable without a load of timed writing, which is not a useful or applicable skill. However! If you prefer getting all of your writing done all at once in an exam, this will be perfect for you. Out of class, readings are fun, light, and easy to understand. The singular term paper is also easy enough to complete, though don't expect your prompt options to be very broad, or to be able to choose your own topic.
