Quarter Taken: Spring 2020
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
Submitted July 19, 2020
Grade Received: A

This was a pretty fun class. We met 3x a week and had readings due for each class, ranging from 2-5 stories or occasionally a movie. We also had to get a certain number of participation points to get an A in the category overall, and she was pretty fair about letting us either participate in class or write a 350 word response. You could not participate a good number of times and still get an A as long as you were careful to keep track of your points. We also had a short quiz each day but they were very easy if you did the readings. There were also 2 midterms and a final paper. I actually found the midterms to be sort of difficult and I wasn’t sure why I lost points on certain sections because she seemed to take off points for no reason. You’ll have to study the slides really carefully to do well on the short answer section of the test, she tests for memorization of random quotes that are on the slides which you might not know even having read all the stories. I have no idea how the paper was graded because she took so long grading everything that she ended up just posting our overall grades the day grades were due and didn’t record the paper grades. Overall the class was pretty interesting and I learned a lot about Hans Christian Andersen. It’s not a super easy A because there is a lot of work but if you’re at all interested in fairy tales it’s definitely worth taking.
