Ugh. I can't explain what a disappointment this class was. I love the course material but I still dreaded going to the class because she was SO boring. Even her reading selections were not all that great, and in-class discussions were always stilted and dry and never EVER engaging. To top it off, she's anal as hell (so anal that a student got up to go to the bathroom and she yelled at him and made him sit back down, what is this--5th grade?!) and it carries over in her grading. So instead of being graded on the quality of your arguments, you're instead graded on margins, footnotes, etc. I guess that's fine for people that don't really mind that, but in courses like these I always want feedback on how I'm thinking about the issues, and you definitely won't get that in the class. It's surprising because she's won lots of accolades and is semi-prominent in the field but I think in her case, it is all fluff.
