Overall, the course material was informative and the professor seemed fairly passionate about the class, which is good. This class, however, is one of the harder GEs in my opinion.

First of all, the readings she gives out every class is a bit much (around 40-60 pages). Secondly, the midterm and final, which are both based on the readings, are graded unnecessarily harshly. These exams are fairly straightforward: she gives us the prompts one week in advance and we're expected to write short answers to those questions during the allotted exam times.

After getting the midterm scores back, I was disappointed with my overall grade and decided to ask what I needed to work on for the next exam. Basically, she had told me that I needed to write more. Personally, I felt that I had answered the questions well enough and it was unfair for her to grade based on how much I wrote. Additionally, (though I may just be a really slow writer) I was writing nonstop for the entire exam. Even if I did not write in enough detail, she doesn't give us a rubric so it's hard to do well if you don't hit the mark from the get-go.

I thought this class would be hard because of the all the readings, required partcipation in terms to contributing to the web site, taking roll, and talking in class, and because of the pop quizzes. But Jennifer tells us the important things, or the key terms to focus on, and drops so many hints about the pop quizzes such it's pretty easy to know when they are. She gave a take-home midterm which I thought wasn't too bad, and she seems to grade pretty leniently. She occasionally breaks the lecturing of the course by showing us pictures and videos. I haven't gone to any of her office hours, but she responds to email fairly quickly. Contributing in class isn't very hard to do, just asking for clarfication for things during class counts, I think, and you just rant about whatever on the dicussion board, Overall, a friendly professor who make its clear what we need to know, and a lenient grader. If you follow everything she tells to you to do, it shouldn't be hard to get an A in the class. She's also the only professor that I know who has asked the students to post their review of her on this website. I thought that was pretty cool, since most of other professors really don't care. Recommended this class if you have any interest at all about Korea.
