Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted Feb. 21, 2019 Grade Received: A

Grade breakdown: 20% attendance/participation (lecture/section), 10% short essay #1, 15% short essay #2, 20% midterm, 35% take home final essay.

This class was really time-consuming and had a lot of strict rules. This is not a chill GE. The readings due every class were dense and you had to read them to understand what was going on in the class. Slides were used in lecture and uploaded but there wasn't much useful information on them. Attendance was mandatory because TAs took attendance at some point every lecture. Phones and laptops weren't allowed in class and if you wanted to use your laptop you had to sit in the front row, and if they caught you with your phone you didn't get attendance credit that day. Section was mandatory but helpful because the TAs went over the readings and you did little group exercises to understand the material better.

I never went to Mchugh's office hours but in lecture she had strong opinions and totally disregarded the opinions of others (seemed arrogant). The course satisfies the diversity requirement which is good but I really didn't enjoy this class at all and wouldn't recommend it.
