A comedic amount of reading, that a student taking no other classes at all would probably not easily do. Lectures and nothing else. The canvas page was made two weeks after spring break, in week 8/9. His grading seems inconsistent and bizarre. Nothing personal, but I would not recommend taking more classes with him. Far too much reading, miserable classes, and so few grades means that you need to do well on whatever he happens to test you on.

This course was very fast paced but did not require prior knowledge of Chinese society. It is one of a few classes in Middlebury's history department to have sit down exams. Be prepared to memorize facts as that will comprise approximately 7% of your overall grade (a grade letter difference).

There is a lot of reading in this class. It is pretty much entirely lecture, reading, and essay based, and for the exams you need to memorize terms, dates, and people who relate to Confucius and/or Confucianism. There were some parts of the class that I found interesting, but if you do not have an interest in history, east Asia, or philosophy, I would not recommend taking this course.
