Overall, the course material was informative and the professor seemed fairly passionate about the class, which is good. This class, however, is one of the harder GEs in my opinion.

First of all, the readings she gives out every class is a bit much (around 40-60 pages). Secondly, the midterm and final, which are both based on the readings, are graded unnecessarily harshly. These exams are fairly straightforward: she gives us the prompts one week in advance and we're expected to write short answers to those questions during the allotted exam times.

After getting the midterm scores back, I was disappointed with my overall grade and decided to ask what I needed to work on for the next exam. Basically, she had told me that I needed to write more. Personally, I felt that I had answered the questions well enough and it was unfair for her to grade based on how much I wrote. Additionally, (though I may just be a really slow writer) I was writing nonstop for the entire exam. Even if I did not write in enough detail, she doesn't give us a rubric so it's hard to do well if you don't hit the mark from the get-go.
