Quarter Taken: Spring 2015 Submitted Feb. 14, 2016 Grade Received: A

This was a class on Arabic literature, taught in English. Professor Cooperson was a great lecturer and made the differences between the different Arab scholars and writers easier to understand; however, it was a bit difficult to not get mixed up between all the names. History played a large role in the course. In terms of assignments we had some multiple choice quizzes, three 3-page reviews of different readings from the course reader, and a final consisting of multiple choice and an essay. We had a lot of different readings, many of which were whole books (biographies, mostly), plus the course reader. However, the material was interesting, which made the reading a lot better. Would definitely take this class again.
