Sex from Biology to Gendered Society
Arnold taught the biology aspect of GE Cluster but did not lecture as much as the other professors. His studies involved bird song studies and other animal research which he related back to human biology. He basically reads straight off of the slides but is open to further explaining his points.
Winter 2016 - 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. romantic friendships, Victorian female sexuality, etc.) 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. Shout out to my TF Rana Sharif! Take it with her! Class Breakdown (+ list of requirements you fulfill) Two Papers: both worth the same, I think 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 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.
