THE COURSE TAUGHT WAS ACTUALLY: ARMENIAN 152: Modern Drama as a Vehicle for Social Critique

He's a great human being who knows a ton about the Armenian people, culture, and literature. He will provide ample information (too much if one may say) and his lectures are therefore somewhat long and boring. The good thing about this class was that both the midterm and the final are a take home. The grade is based on midterm, essay, final and participation. It was a class of about 15 people. A lot of us are scared that we will get bad grades. He expects so much from us in term of doing background research for the paper. The biggest "let-down" or negative aspect is the fact that our first assignment (the midterm) was due like 6 days before Thanksgiving. We literally have no idea how we're doing in the class. It's nerve wrecking and that's why I wouldn't recommend him. He also made two trips to Armenia during the quarter so he cut about two/three weeks worth of lecture. At the time, we thought it's nice since it sounded like vacation but I would have rather had him present (we met 2X a week) than gone since I'm clueless as to what to write for the essay.
Overall, yes, he's smart and learned in the subject. I just wish I knew how I was doing BEFORE the 9th week of the Fall Quarter. Whether I, or the other 14 ppl., would like to drop the course, well, it's too late for that so we're all stuck with Cs and Bs... O yea, and the two girls who might get an A.
