Papers, papers, papers. All the time! It's crazy the amount of writing there is to do in Pierre l'heureux's class. I took Social/Cultural Changes in the United States with him, and we had at least 20 pages to read for each class (2 classes/week) and for each text (20 to 40 pages/text) we had reading questions to answer. It was a lot of homework. For his exams, forget the multiple choices and the short answer questions... Each exam is distributed into 4 parts. The first part is made up of 2 questions which you have to answer in about 150 words each; those come at the time of the exam. Parts 2 and 4 come in preparation. Part 2 in made up of 3 questions that would answer in between 200 and 400 words. Part 4 is a 1000-1500 words essay. And finally, for part 3, he will give you 4 questions from your homework reading assignments. If you do the math, one exam is about 2000-3000 words...! That is a lot of work. And he is not an easy grader. You might put all the work in the world, the class average for the exams were 65-ish and the Term Paper (yes cause of course we had a term paper! ) was about 70-ish...
