Sex from Biology to Gendered Society
Arnold was a but confusing at times but tried his best to clear up misunderstandings. His exams were extremely difficult and tricky. I often relied on my TA for help because he was so terribly confusing. Overall though Arnold was not horrible. You have to pay close attention in order to do well.. and seek outside help. lots of it.
Fall 2015 - WARNING: A LOT OF READINGS (but all the readings are provided so you don't need to spend $$). Don't bother to buy the Course Reader. I didn't even use it. The class itself was quite interesting, it really made you be more aware of issues that you may not ever encounter in any other class (e.g. intersex individuals). However, since Clusters are 6 units, you need to invest some time in this class. The quizzes can be tricky but they're very fast (15 minutes long for 12 questions). The papers were intensive but that's given. Class Breakdown (+ list of requirements you fulfill) Two Papers: the second is worth more than the first Three short quizzes: these are based on the lectures and readings Final exam: like a quiz but 40 questions instead of 12 Section work: - Presentations: very easy, based on that week's readings - Writing exercises: also very easy, just do it and hand it to your TF - Participation: just speak up in discussion and you'll be fine - Library stuff: you'll get an explanation from a Powell librarian about how to use the library Course evaluations: an easy way to get 1% You fulfill 2 Social Analysis GEs, 1 Historical Analysis GE, 1 Life Science GE, 1 Writing II requirement, 1 Diversity requirement (6 requirements in 3 quarters) IF you finish the whole 72A, B, C series.
