Ms. Beach was a very nice teacher; she's not exceptional, but she's good. She raises challenging questions and points out interesting things in the artworks and historical contexts. She really just agrees with most all comments in the discussions, and only rarely will she challenge your point. She's a fair grader, and if you put in the effort, you can do well on the essays. Be sure to be very specific on midterms and finals, but most importantly in this class, PARTICIPATE! Go a little bit above and slightly beyond. Go to office hours, talk in class, have all the requirements when you turn in your papers, do the readings; these all factor into the participation portion of the grade (25%) and she notices. Overall, I would be totally willing to take another Art Humanities class with her again!
