Don't be fooled by this thread on this course. I admit I used this as a reference tool to find some easy courses but from what I've seen, these comments don't pertain to the most recent adaptation of this course. Theres a new prof running it, and because of the current circumstances regarding in school learning, the online version of this course is NOT that easy. There are 2 1500+ word essays, and 2 tests. I wouldn't say this course is too hard but in reality its not easy either. It's in the "if I slack off my grade will largely reflect that" category, and I slacked off a bit which got me somewhere in the mid 70's. First thing prof Clark mentioned in announcements when we started was "Do not think this is a bird course", he must have been looking at this site lol.

Danesi was great and easy. For the final essay and exam the TAs took over though, and made both harder. Still managed to get an A though. Just do your readings, they're pretty short.

tests are true and false, essays may be collaborative.
