professor was injured so the class was online. it consisted of a midterm, a 6-8 page paper due week 9, and a final. midterm and final consisted of 3 questions to be answered in a paraphrase and 1 question to be answered in 2-3 paragraphs with an extra credit question. professor is helpful though the material is dense. lots of information to cover so learn to take good notes

I really liked Professor Goodwin-White! I took ethnicity in American cities in winter of 2021 so it was online/ it was also geog 162 not geog 144 but it was still titled ethnicity in American cities! The course material was definitely not easy but if you watch all the lectures and do all the readings you will likely get a good grade. Her lectures were recorded and they were no longer than an hour lectures and sometimes they would be two one hour long lectures per week so not bad at all for a recorded lecture. The readings were relatively long but there was usually 1-2 readings a week (She posted the pdfs on ccle/there was no textbook) and they were fairly interesting! She does talk about the readings in lecture but I'd still recommend doing the readings because you have to bring them in on the midterm and final. The midterm and final (for the online version of this class) were both through ccle and there was a few day window to take it. Both the midterm and final were a few multiple choice questions, and short answer/ essay questions. There was also an extra credit question on both the midterm and final. The other part of the class was a research paper which had a research assignment before it. The part 1 of the research paper is where you had to pick a city and do research on it based on the guidelines she gave out and then you wrote a short research paper (I think it was approx 5-6 pages). The TA was also very helpful and answered all my questions about it. Overall, I'd recommend this professor and class but don't expect an easy A but rather like a doable A.

Race and ethnicity are contentious topics, and the lack of agreement between "professionals" in the field makes this class' reading material onerous - and there is quite a bit of required reading. Jamie Goodwin-White is not a poor professor, though lectures can be a bit boring. I had one important class assignment (broken into two parts), a midterm, and a final. The grading for the assignment was vague and unhelpful; however, the midterm and final were fairly written and graded. BOTTOM LINE: if you enjoy sociology, or if you are interested in understanding US racial dynamics, then you might enjoy this class. Would I enroll again? Not a chance.
