Quarter: N/A
Grade: N/A
Dec. 27, 2008

While I've heard decent things about him for 173C, perhaps the seminar setting of 182C is not where his teaching style belongs. That said, I took the 182C seminar on Human Rights Literature, and his conduct of the class was perhaps further skewed by the fact that he was teaching a class he was doing his own research on. As a result, I felt that instead of allowing ample opportunity for the class to make its own discoveries, to cultivate its own interests in the material, he steamrolled us. He definitely had a direction he wanted to steer the class in, and went to great lengths to make sure we spent 3 hours working towards his personal point. To his credit, he did have moments of clarity throughout the quarter in which he made efforts to be more inclusive of what issues we were interested in addressing, but those efforts were short-lived. Throughout the quarter, I couldn't shake the feeling that Huehls is still one of those intellects with some sort of chip on his shoulder, constantly having to prove how smart he is.

Overall, though, the class wasn't bad--the material was interesting, the workload a bit heavy (especially if taking other literature courses at the same time). A novel a week in addition to secondary texts, one-page response papers (which he--oddly, IMO--let people turn in up until week 9), all culminating in a final presentation and research paper. It's a bit of work, but as long as you put in a decent amount of effort in and outside of class, you should fare well.
