Basically didn't have any assignments besides the midterm, final paper, and final. The midterm and final were short essay/response format but some questions were definitely harder than others, also open book and note. She gives exam preview questions and gives you feedback on what she wants (no extra credit tho); I turned in the wrong response but she was fairly understanding and let me turn it in late. Overall fairly easy class, but the few assignments can make getting a higher grade hard.

I took his kinship class and while i was very interested in the material before, after i was left confused and half learned. Read is a very nice, caring man but his lectures are confusing and his lecture style is very sloppy. At times he,himself puts up diagrams that once in front of the class has forgotten what the point or connection was. if you have already taken anthro 9 the begining of the class will seem very similar until you get to the complexity that is kinship and at this point the whol class was confused up until the final. while he tries to explain the fact that he is unoragnized at times does not help. there is a midterm and final as well as a family tree project and a second kinship projet. Overall if you can take it with a better teacher do so but Read is a good guy, hes approachable and the class is very do-able.

Silk is a great teacher for this class. She is knowledgable and her tests are fair. Make sure you attend lecture and learn the lecture notes well cause her questions come straight from that. I always had them printed and reviewed them for the midterm and final which really really helped cause I got an A on both. The reading is optional(in my opinion) cause the lecture highlights what you need to know from the readings. She taught this class with another Prof. Levine(also great and fair teacher)
