Lederer suffers from anxiety, and that is evident in the way he randomly shuffles papers around during his lecture. hes extremely brilliant and encourages the class to think for themselves. LOVES to discuss deep issues. He completely changed the way i write, and I am very grateful to have taken his class. Tough grader. was surprised i got an A.

Prof Lederer makes english interesting. We have to learn to write about a lot of different things but he wants us to think. Doesn't push all the same old ideas. We write about current issues, internet criticism and use our ideas to criticize. Diverse viewpoints are appreciated. Props to prof lederer.

Knows his stuff. Very fair. Be sure to participate. Lederer goes into detail about everything--and I mean everything! Just don't say 'I think'. How you understand language will never be the same!

Wants us to think and make comparisons. Mixes old with the new and can relate to young students but still wants us to grow intellectually. Just pay attention, understand analytical writing and you'll do fine. The class moves quickly through lit and film and essays and news articles. Follow his guidelines and avoid fallacies.

Lederer is a great speaker and motivator and makes the subject interesting...he jumps from literature to culture and current events. Don't try to email him homework, but he is cool with checking your papers by email. His class is medium-hard because he'll catch mistakes you make, but he's open minded even when he pretends to play devil's advocate.

Very fair. Go to class and pay attention. Ask questions and talk to him after class. He's really into his work and it shows. Just show you care and avoid being really emotional and vague in your writing and you'll get an A.

Checks attendance until drop deadline. Gives regular reading, morning writing or quizzes, discussion, followed with videos and debate. He's into art film, existential philosophy, political debates. Seems pretty passionate about his job.

We basically covered debates and criticism. He splits the course into being half literture/art/film, half nonfiction and essays. If you can talk and listen and understand basic reasoning you should pass. If you can't think for yourself class is probably not for you. He's pretty outspoken and honest. Argue with him after class for bonus points.
