modern jewish thought

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I'd say this class was an easy A except that I didn't get an A. I went throught the entire semester in a little bit of a daze wondering what the point was and when we would start the actual material. I learned absolutely nothing which is a shame because I went to every single class and read every single book (in its entirety! because that's how much was assigned- a dense book a week). I'm not sure what the repercussions would have been had I not gone, not read, not volunteered. Honestly I don't care. I never even picked up my paper to find out how I did. The class was a waste of time. Kind of a shame, because Schorsch is a really nice guy and "Modern Jewish Thought" is a really rich subject.

Workload:

none of the reading is necessary except for the 15-20 page research paper on subject of your choice. I did mine on a topic that was basically unconnected to anything we had discussed in class.

this class is probably the most boring class i have ever taken! schorsch just goes on talking for the entire class without coming up for breath- or to even think about what he is saying. He does not care to answer questions, pretends to be open to them but then goes off on his own tangents. the only good part about the class is the easy work load

Workload:

response papers to each reading (though you dont need to do the reading) one 10 page research paper, class attendance
