Selected Topics in Biological Anthropology: Mother Nature, Father Time: Evolutionary Perspectives on Parenting
Winter 2023 - Dr. Scleza was an incredible professor who did very well even without a TA (though she absolutely deserved a couple). Her lectures were packed with information and she was very clear and accessible in the way that she presented. She left out superfluous topics, jargon, and information in order to clarify and emphasize the course topics, but she was not unwilling to delve further when prompted. She is very clearly knowledgable and passionate about her research, her work, and this class. This was one of my favorite classes I have ever taken. She gave us 4 quizzes and dropped the lowest grade. The quizzes were very 10 multiple choice questions and were very easy if you just pay attention in lecture. Her slides are quite hefty and definitely need her translation, especially for the case studies, so try to make it to class. If you can't it would be helpful to attend office hours just to gain clarity on some slides. She is super helpful and approachable. There was a final paper, but it was easy and fun!
