Overall an interesting and easy GE.

Midterm- 40%
Final-40%
Discussion Participation- 10%
Weekly Discussion Prompts- 10%

There was also a 3 pt extra credit opportunity towards the end of the quarter as well. The exams are pretty simple because the long/short responses are based on the weekly discussion questions and the rest of the exam is matching quotes with readings. No textbooks required, just do the readings diligently and make sure you can answer all the discussion questions. There are no essays or long writing assignments, so this class is ideal for people like me who dislike writing. Lectures are powerpoint and the slides go by too fast to even take a picture. No worries-- the lectures are useful, but more like supplements to the readings. I think that it's totally possible to not attend a single lecture and get a 100% in the class. Professor Ishida did take attendance once though. Best part of the class is the entertaining and relevant films.
