McDermott, Rachel Silver_nugget

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

This class was excellent - very interesting based on just the information alone, but also taught very well. Professor McDermott passionately cares about what she's teaching, and is always eager to talk to students and help them in any way she can. She brings in her travel slides to class, gives handouts with key terms for every lecture, and shows some interesting movies. The reading load could be heavy, but with a little bit of corner-cutting you could get the main ideas and do well.


A lot of reading, two 6-7 page papers, and a final, which, by the way, you get a review sheet for that tells you EVERYTHING that's going to be on the final, explicitly.
