Balmer, Randall Silver_nugget
religion and american culture

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

Prof. Balmer is an interesting lecturer. He uses engaging materials, including different films and speakers. However, he is unorganized in the class structure in that he did not plan how long to spend on each topic. So, while we spent over a month on one unit, we spent only two days on another.

Workload:

The workload is not bad -- four papers, an EASY midterm and final. Really not a big deal. But, in your response papers, be sure to put in your personal opinion. This is not a class where you should avoid using your own voice. Write "I think" and draw in comparisons to your own life -- he loves that!
