I absolutely loved my English classes in high school. My 9th/11th grade teacher was more serious about things, so I guess I liked those classes for the "proper" reasons, haha. My 10th/12th grade classes (with the same teacher) had so many fun moments, though. For one, we were encouraged to add a cover sheet of sorts to all of our essays that we could write or draw anything on and then we'd have a "showcase" after all the papers were turned in. We'd also have reading days where we could find a nice spot on campus to enjoy the weather, which was always nice. I also at one point got to make an albatross glider and toss it off the top of the football stands. It went pretty far!
Also in high school... I was a bit lazy my senior year and they'd changed things so that instead of having six classes, we would have seven, and since I was already at a loss about what to take as extra electives I went for things where I could use minimal effort/have fun. I ended up choosing an introductory keyboarding class because as far as I knew it was taught by the chorus teacher who didn't know me and I could probably get away with pretending that I didn't know anything about playing piano (despite having taken lessons for years >>). Well, surprise surprise, the assistant band director (who knew me since I'd been in marching band and knew I played piano) ended up teaching and the first day was like... what are you doing here? >< He probably could have made me take something else, but he ended up basically letting me choose whatever I wanted to learn/play the entire year and he just checked to see if I was making progress - though I did still have to play the pieces he chose as tests for grades. He also made me choose something appropriate to my level (which was well beyond what anyone else was doing) at the end of year recital though, so that got some interesting reactions...
I was going to take American Sign Language as another elective, but they cancelled it, so after that I was like... well fine then, I choose study hall so I can do nothing. >> Because my school had incredible planning skills, they made study hall first period so it was incredibly unproductive for about two weeks, at which point they offered us the chance to help with tutoring some freshmen during that hour, which ended up being an incredibly rewarding experience.
As for uni... well, I loved all four of my organic chem classes, but that comes down to me just liking that particular branch of chemistry, it wasn't really anything to do with the classes. Although I will say that both profs I had were the funniest and most entertaining I've had. xD
I also had a couple of classes similar to your Classic Works class, Ashley, that I took to satisfy Humanities requirements. One was a music literature class where I needed to see a few performances and write reaction papers, which I loved because I really enjoy going to see (listen to?) the orchestra and the class gave me an excuse to go. The other was an online theatre class where part of the class was again going out to see different performances, and I saw a few that were put on by students, but then also got to see Beauty and the Beast which was so much fun!
I also got away with taking what was basically an acting class to fulfill a public speaking requirement, which was pretty amazing, lol.
