This class will make you think about climate change in a new way. Through oceans, indigenous groups, poems, creative writings... the material was organized and Professor DeLoughrey takes great care to include everyone. Discussion posts are due once a week and you have a final project that is super open-ended. During the class periods we went on a field trip to an art gallery and were able to meet the artist, we zoomed with one of the poets whose poems we read, truly such an interactive experience. One of the best if not the best honors class I've taken! Do it!
Professor DeLoughrey is a light soul. She is very engaged in her material and truly is passionate/knowledgable about the subject. Know that the class has weekly discussions where you have to post each Tuesday, there is an average 4-5 readings per week, a final paper/project (8-10 pgs) as well as 50 point project. The 50 point slide project was the most work as you do have to make a partnered presentation, run it by her, and present it for an entire class period. She is flexible, very kind, and is easy to talk to. Just make sure to communicate with her and try to come to each class since participation matters.
Yes, this class is 3 hour, yes that sounds like a lot but it's truly tolerable with her. If you are an honors student, this is a wonderful Professor and I highly recommend but know this class is mostly writing. At the end, she did give an extra credit opportunity and she did take us on a field trip so super enjoyable class, I learned a lot, and became very interested in the topic. Good luck!
Professor DeLoughrey is a gifted teacher and a neat person. Her class was very interesting and she is passionate and very knowledgeable in many areas of the bigger picture of the issue of climate change. The class is a small intimate setting and she gets to know you and encourages every student in the discussions to be a part of them. She is also very helpful and easy to approach about any concerns you have. I loved exploring this difficult subject in her class, I felt very respected and felt that the class was beneficial to my growth as both a student and a person. That said, it is an Honors class and she sets a high bar so come ready to work! But it's well worth it trust me!! Have fun :)
