WAY TOO MUCH WORK. Every week there is something due, though at the end of the semester I was a bit relieved knowing that I've already written some parts of the paper. At least not all the weekly assignments were useless!

Prof. E herself is caring and accommodating to different learning needs, but at times her condescending tone is hard to miss. Like some previous reviews mentioned, she tends to treat you like middle schoolers but somehow doesn't always make herself super clear.

And lastly, no, you will not spend all your time watching cute toddlers walking around.

Workload:

too much, which is true for most psych labs.

Students should expect to work hard and learn a lot in Professor Etengoff's Developmental Psych Lab. While some of the assignments may seem insignificant, she is actually teaching very valuable skills and lessons through the assignments. She is a remarkably sensitive and kind person and is happy to work with students on personal needs. She cares about the success of her students and will put in extra time if a student cares enough to put in the effort themselves. Students shouldn't expect an easy A from this class, yet it isn't difficult to succeed if you do the assigned work. She is very specific about what she wants, which is remarkably helpful. She creates a nice dynamic in the classroom which fosters teamwork and encourages collaboration.

Workload:

Very reasonable - a number of smaller assignments and a final paper. She is available to review parts of your paper prior to the due date. Save yourself by doing the smaller assignments because those points add up quickly.
