She's fun, she's passionate about her work, but take away her notes and the class is useless. She practically reads off her notes during class, sometimes even pausing because she forgot her place in the page. I don't think she's taught that many years so she still needs time to lecture from her mind and experiences, and not soley from her sheets of notes.
She's not the best at explaining things, but she does try. She encourages class interaction which is good...her reader was relatively short and the readings were reasonable...and she shows a good amount of videos which is always a plus.
She does give you an outline of everything you need to know for the midterm and final, so there isn't much room to complain if you do poorly. I wouldn't recommend her unless you're a geography or social science major; otherwise it's not the best class for a GE (material is too dry) and it's definitely not an easy A.
