Quarter: Spring 2023
Grade: A-
June 26, 2023

Overall, Adam was a good TA. His lectures were concise, helpful, and always incredibly engaging. However, as somebody who hadn't been in Adam's class before, I felt that he showed favoritism to those who he TA'd for in the previous two quarters and, as a result, made it more difficult to reach out for help and guidance throughout the quarter. He also places a heavy emphasis on participation, so if you are not actively engaging with him in office hours, during seminar, or otherwise it makes it more challenging to get an A. In terms of the grading, it was manageable and honestly very easy. We had weekly discussion posts, 1 reacting to a given article/section and 1 that responded to somebody else's post; each was 100 words and not difficult at all. We had 1 paper due throughout the quarter but it all had to do with a content analysis project analyzing media sources and their coverage of different protests/protest groups. The paper was 10-12 pages and the project itself was time-consuming but doable. It was a bit tricky to get started because the directions were very open-ended and not explicit in many respects, but it went well at the end and overall it was a very fun quarter.
