What was your favorite class in college?

I love these prompts!!

My favorite class in high school was American Government with Mr. Robert Morgan because he challenged us, did not talk down to us, and because 🙂  I could use the notes from his class in college the next year.

Most of my favorite classes have been the most challenging English classes..or at least the most memorable.  The Shakespeare mini-mester class..you can’t beat ten people, most of whom love Shakespeare, talking about what makes those plays great.  The Chaucer class..basically ditto.

English Grammar was an exception because I didn’t really enjoy the class, but learned a lot, including how to put my particular take on everything I write.  I try to have a (slightly sarcastic) sense of humor about most things, and actually did insert that into papers for this class.

I think that a huge part of what makes a great class great is if the teacher loves that topic.  Can you really imaging a accountant waxing ecstatic about Shakespeare in a knowledgeable way?  I could never bring enthusiasm into a Algebra class.
