Quarter Taken: Winter 2016 Submitted March 22, 2016 Grade Received: A

I took 4w and got an A
If you have to take 4w, take it with him.
Jay is a great teacher. His grading is lenient. He grades upon improvement; he doesn't have a certain standard for an A or B, but it's quite subjective on the students level (given that the student knows how to write at a proficient high school level).

Go to his office hours and be an active participant in the class.

His readings are quite heavy, but doable.

I'm not a sucky writer, but a slow reader and writer.
So I slept 1 hour for the midterm paper (A-)
and 45 minutes for the final paper (idk what I got but got an A in the class).

attendance 20%
Participation 25%
Poem assignment 5%
Midterm Paper (4-5 pages) 20%
Final Paper (4-5 pages) 30%

also there is some acting we did, which was enjoyable.

on a difficulty scale of 10 being "wtf that was a joke" and 0 being "wtf"
I give this class a 6
