course
Religion and Social Organization

Dec 2007

Do not take this course if this professor is teaching it. It should have been a really interesting class, because we read great stuff and there were only 11 people, so I was expecting a really discussion based course. I did not get that at all. He didn't break down the material well, so nobody really knew what was going on, and it made it impossible to start a discussion when we were all confused as hell. He also never really established a rapport in the beginning, like never introduced himself or let us introduce ourselves, and the only reason our class ended up getting along is because we talked about how much we couldn't stand him. He happens to be very inarticulate, so his questions are awkwardly posed in class and when he lectures he just reads long paragraphs he has typed up, and it's kind of hard to take notes from that. Just avoid it, no matter what.
