Undergraduate Variable Topics Research Seminars: History -- East Asia
Spring 2019 - If you’re feeling reluctant about enrolling then don’t be. This class was stylish and prudently planned to encourage students to begin the writing process early. Which is good for you because, let’s be honest, you’re lazy. So am I. The texts were highly curated and, if I were a better student, I could’ve written my capstone paper by sourcing only the assigned readings. What Andrea Goldman has created is a capstone course that is uniquely different and distinctively cool, and its seamlessness is an example of her creativity and capability as an instructor. Assignments & discussion: 30% Peer review: 10% Preliminary draft: 15% Final paper: 45%
I took this history sem and thought it went weel. There was a lot of reading that has to be done before you go to class otherwise everyonesits there and doesn't talk. The grade is based on class participation and papers. He grades the papers very thoroughly and gives very detailed reasons for the grades, which is helpful. overal it was a positive class expeience.
