Culture and Personality
Fall 2021 - Not gonna lie, when I saw the syllabus and watched the first lecture I was intimidated and thought the class would be difficult, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. Overall it was a pretty good class. The lectures were pre-recorded and the instructions to assignments were all extremely clear. The readings are a lot, but not too hard to get through. Personally, I used a text-to-speech website to help me read them faster. Some articles are very interesting whereas others are very dense and even when I re-read them I still didn't understand them. There are assignments related to the readings that help you understand the material and honestly keep you from procrastinating. The final essay instructions and rubric are very clear. There were no quizzes/tests, just the assigned sources reading assignments, 3 reflections about COVID/personality/culture, and the final essay. She's very straight-forward. Discussion was cool and helped breakdown the week's reading and overall main points. Ty was my TA and he broke things down really well and was super helpful.
