Raphaeli-Slivko, Ruth
[MDES W4512] Readings In Hebrew Texts I

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

Nice lady but not the most challenging class if you have completed the required Hebrew classes to take this class (which is considered an upper-level language class). Very easy to get side-tracked on conversations about the roots of words or how to remember the grammer of a word. Not a difficult grader and will regive a quiz if the class does not do well. Overall I am not even sure that the quizzes factor into our grading, and I doubt the homework did either. Homeworks and assignments are given two grades: content and language. Most people get an A on the first and an A or A- on the second. Overall the class was enjoyable and I would take it if it fits your schedule.

Workload:

Lots of Quizzes, 2 written assignments, final assignment or a written final (depends on her preference), periodic homeworks (mostly sentence writing on the words for a quiz or summaries of readings)
