Reflection/Assessment:

This was the very last tier requirement that I needed. I chose this class because it addressed a time period that I was already very interested in; the time of the Tudors. The Tudors were a ruling family in England between the years of 1485 and 1603. This family was full of intrigue and drama; most of that centered around King Henry VIII and his wives and two daughters. I thoroughly enjoy historical fiction books about these historical figures, so it was cool to learn about the real people behind all those fictional accounts. The class itself was given at a good pace and I got to learn many interesting things. I also think that the information I learned in this class would definitely become useful if I ever have the pleasure of editing a historical fiction novel about this time period.
