Ohaneson, Heather (TA)
Religion and Its Critics

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

Heather was a great TA. She really cared about the discussion section and that we all got a better understanding of the material. She was really good at provoking discussion and challenging questions. While the class was great in it of itself, Heather definitely added something to make it especially awesome. She was always available to meet outside of class/office hours to clarify the material or help with the papers. She was really good at giving advice on picking paper topics and starting research. However, just as she puts a lot of effort into the section she had high expectations of the students: she was, so I hear, a bit of a harsh grader, although I didn't have a problem with it myself.

Workload:

come prepared to discussion section with a question or a comment on that week's reading.
