Tufts University: Gerard Gasarian - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Gerard Gasarian | FR032A - Readings in French Literature II| French2005-04-27

Professor Gasarian is one of the most unique and best professors that I have had. He is extremely bright and adds a wealth of insight to the class discussion. At the same time, he respects each individual's views and ties them in very well to the main themes of the readings. He has a goods sense of humor and doesn't put too much weight on participation, although it still is important. He is enthusiastic about the material, and is available out of class (although he won't speak English to you!)

This is one of the few classes that I have taken at Tufts where the workload is actually perfectly reasonable. There is a good amount of reading but nothing that will take you more than 1-2 hours (per class). The readings can be tough and there's a lot of difficult vocabulary (especially with the poetry) but a lot is explained in class and it's not like you need to know everything. There are three compositions for the semester with relatively open topics, 2 mandatory presentations that you must do on the reading (they're relatively informal, just pick an aspect of the reading that will promote class discussion), and a written final exam on the last book that you read. Very reasonable.
