Introduction to American Folklore Studies
I took World Arts and Cultures 22 (WAC 22) with professor Polk and my T.A. was Anna B. Creagh. I have to say, this class was awesome! There are 5 quizzes that are 2-3 questions based on the readings. 4 announced and 1 pop quiz. (These arn't too bad, you just have to know the main ideas of the readings). There are two collection assignments about 3-5 pages. You just interview a informant about a topic discussed in class and do an analysis. Just talk to your T.A. if you need help. Anna was extremely helpful and gave us many examples and advice on how to do well. No biggie, just ask professor Polk or your T.A. for help. The midterm wasn't too bad. Just 2 questions with parts A. B. and C. they ask a question and you have to use course topics and readings to answer them. If you pay attention in class and skim the reading, you'll do fine. lastly the final is take home, so no biggie here either, just take your time on it and proofread. Oh and did I mention, Professor polk is a funny guy and plays videos in class??!! Honestly I had fun in this class and ended up with an A+. Don't get me wrong, you'll have to do some work, but in the end, its worth it and you'll realize that it was a very fun and interesting class. I highly recommend you take it!!
