Quarter Taken: Fall 2020
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.

Grade Received: A+

I took Professor Shuger's class during the COVID-19 pandemic so all the lectures were prerecorded to watch in our free time while the live lectures were just optional office hours where students could pop in Zoom with questions. Her lectures were very interesting and she is obviously passionate about what she teaches. The grading was dependent on the TA with 3 papers total and a weekly quiz. The weekly quiz consisted of 5 questions based on the week's reading with 1 of the questions always being extra credit, so a 4/5 was 100%. This obviously helps out quite a bit! The extra question always ends up being about poem metrics where we would be asked to scan a line from the text. She was understandable that not everyone is amazing at poem metrics so Professor Shuger included an optional Final Exam for those struggling with quizzes. The reading and workload is quite heavy and difficult, but overall the class is doable as long as it's taken seriously. I'm not sure how much the class format will change after the pandemic, but I assume the extra credit on the quizzes and the 3 papers stay the same either way.
