Soc 101 Just to let people know, the people who said she was boring aren't just upset at the class or their grade. Her lectures are ACTUALLY uninteresting as hell. I would exercise and be so energetic in the morning and somehow (I am not even lying to you) I got really sleepy as if I hadn't slept for weeks, I don't even know how she does it. Our TA was good, and so I ended up doing well, but if you're TA is f'd up then well so your grade will be, unless you just complain and complain for help and get tutoring with AAP. In retrospect, though, I really liked how she broke down the class into three parts and her readings were widely used in all the classes I'm taking now. Overall, it's kind of a burden to take this class and usually you take her because she's the only one teaching that class, and you get a limited amount of time to do the big assignments. She's nice though, it was just a hard process of committing. I got an A- though. You gotta be grateful for the hard work you put into this bullssshht class.
this professor is horrible. she has no concern for your grade whatsoever. her lectures are extremely long and boring. the essays, which are due the same that they are given, have the worst and unfair grading ever (all subjective). please please please, do NOT take this professor. if you actually want to learn something useful out of this class, please avoid her in every single way possible!!!
Professor Hart is a good resource of information on this topic. Her lectures could be a bit dry sometimes but paying attention and taking notes does help. There is a ton of reading you must for this class. I wouldn't recommend taking this class in conjunction with another heavy reading Soc class. If you do the readings and make good outlines on the key points and use the information Professor gave you as being the heart you should do well over all. I would try and only take this class with Kate as your TA, cause I don't know how I would have made it through had she not been there. Towards the end the material becomes more interesting, well at least to me. You learn a lot about food though and the sociological implications it has on us. Interesting stuff overall.
