Quarter: Winter 2015

Redo-Post, you'd think they'd make a delete button for this site. I hope an administrator will see within time and will delete the post below. I just, changed the scores for the workload. Now to think of it the reading load isn't much and by the end of the quarter you get to view movies. Its just that the time frame to write the essays were short, especially when you got 3 other classes demanding the same.

Original post: Ok I see some bad reviews on Professor Sharpe, but I really ended up enjoying something I imagined to be boring. The reading amount can defiantly get dense, if you are taking other literature classes, but the reading selections for the class were excellent. In class, Professor Sharpe tries to engage classroom discussion and expects everyone to ask questions and have read the material before coming to class. So if you don't do the work, your not going to enjoy the class.

That being said, I thought her lectures were brilliant. As someone who did not have a clue about postcolonial literature, by the end of the quarter Eng130 became my favorite class. I strongly recommend taking the class, especially if you never have read anything from the Caribbean Islands. Take a leap faith in learning something new, instead of going for the 'cooler' sounding classes. I always felt like the best classes I took during my 4 years were the classes of my third choice. For me, the literature could touch me on a personale level and made me really re-think about how i see myself. During my four years here, that never happened.
