If you're taking this class with the mindset of getting an A without working for it, then this isn't the class for you. The theme of this course is fairy tales and you'll be writing 3 essays about the structures or analysis about fairy tales. Honestly, there isn't that much work besides the essays and some readings here and there. However, you have to work and revise your essays if you want anything around an A. I kinda regret not starting early on my essays and constantly revising them because I'm pretty sure I could have gotten a better grade on all 3 essays. Don't just blindly pick into this class though. Try and look for certain themes from other classes that might appeal more to you. Overall, the workload for this course is not that much but perfecting your writing will take time and effort.

Bruce Stone will really guide you towards becoming a better writer. The work load is manageable and at times very minimal, so the main aim is to understand what good writing looks like and sounds like. He is more than a fair grader. The grade may not be as flexible as the other professors in terms that you have three assignments , but he makes up for that with meetings before submitting the paper where he gives in very useful feedback. Likewise the grading is not as strict because he understands the constrains, at least for the first assignment. TAKE A CLASS WITH HIM. You will not regret it, just put an effort and start working on your assignments early, go to writing center and revise like crazy. Once you are done you will feel the difference.
