Contemporary Issues, Method, Practicum

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

Totally agree with the other reviews. I don't think I know of anyone who hated or even disliked her class. She's truly passionate about the class and encourages her students. She creates a sense of community in the classroom which I find to be rare in college classes these days. She really cares about each of her students, which is why there may be more work than usual but trust me you'll want to impress her. It's a lot of reading, but I try to read two or three pieces and skim the rest...participation is a must in her classes. The class thrives on discussion.

Workload:

Contemporary: one 10 page research paper but broken up into a literature review and an article review and drafts in between with writing fellows. weekly reading responses and faciliation of one class with group.

Methods: weekly responses, autobiography, one group project, lesson plans

Practicum: classroom observation, notebook with observations, one class faciliation with group.
