Quarter: Winter 2022
Grade: A
April 1, 2022

This class is more trouble than it is worth. For a GE that doesn't qualify for writing II credit, it requires quite a bit of writing. Expect to not receive clear directions for the assignments. The one good thing about this course is the lecture. Professor Lyndon makes it quite engaging and relevant. Most of what is graded does not heavily depend on the lecture so I would not worry too much if you cannot attend. Attendance is only important for discussion although she will say attendance is mandatory for lecture. Your TA for this course will really make or break your experience.

I really like the professor, but not so much the class. She was really nice and you could tell she really cared about the subject matter, but it was really hard to stay engaged in lecture. You have to work for an A in this class, as the TA (Galaan) does all the grading and is pretty harsh on the papers and especially the formatting of the citations (chicago style). You have to talk in discussion to get points, and you actually have to say something insightful, which was stressful at times on zoom. It was pretty average GE honestly, not amazing but not awful either.
