The best aspects of the course included the knowledgeable, approachable, and funny professor who encouraged group discussion and emphasized understanding and problem solving with the materials presented. Students enjoyed the format of the class, which included group essays and the use of published papers as course materials. Some students had difficulty with the lack of guidance of the open?ended assignments. This class could be improved by posting more detailed lecture notes, and providing more detailed feedback on written assignments. Prospective students should know this course will require a lot of group work and writing. This course was highly recommended.
