Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted May 13, 2020 Grade Received: A

I really enjoyed taking this class with Professor Burke. He is really nice and approachable, extremely knowledgeable on the topics taught in this class, and made the topics interesting. Dr. Burke read the class climate quite well and tried to do his best to engage the south campus seniors trying to meet their GE requirements. The more you thought about the topics in class, the more interesting it became. I guess you get out of it what you put in - just like in any class. Professor Burke didn't require a textbook and instead posted short articles or PDFs instead. There was a weekly two to three page double-spaced writing reflection assignment on the topics taught that week. This was the only homework. The tests were fair if you studied a little bit and paid attention to dates and names. The TAs were incredibly helpful and were really welcoming during their office hours. This was a great class and I would take it again if I had the choice. In fact, I signed up for a study abroad for CS in Israel for summer 2020 hoping to learn and explore more (although this won't happen unfortunately due to COVID-19). Tip: if you (A) like history (B) want to learn more about stories of the bible or the true history behind them (C) stay engaged and listen during a history class - you should try ANNEA 162.

Do not take this class. It is EXTREMELY boring and the final was so unnecessarily hard (a six page essay during the whole coronavirus announcement). Burke doesn't teach very well, your TA is the one who actually explains the incredibly uninteresting material.
