A very enjoyable class. Her lecture style is not the most enthalling or interesting, but she herself is a very interesting person. You can really tell her dedication to her research and how much she cares about the autistic children she works with through the stories she would tell in class. It is just too bad that most of the time she reads off of the handouts she gives out at each lecture.
There are 2 projects and 2 tests, all of which are pretty easy. The readings were enjoyable and really presented a lot of iteresting issues pertaining to Linguistic Anthro and really opened my eyes to a lot of issues out there. Just read up on all the material and go over the handouts she gives you and the class is an easy A.
As an anthro major this class was disappointing. There was no structure to the class--every lecture we move on to different topics that seem to have no connection to the previous material. The required readings were absolutely painful: long, wordy, and vague. And the 2 projects are just a waste of time. I think the biggest problem I had, though, was the TAs. My TA (Eleanor) was just plain useless. Overall this class is bearable, but if you have other options for a social and historical analysis GE, don't take this class.
Not a good lecturer. Our classtime consisted of her handing out a handout (which ended up online) and then reading said handout to us. She showed approximately two movies, neither of which was on the midterm, and most of our grade is coming from two "projects" that she thinks are fun but really could be considered a nuisance. One said project was to sit for an hour, 3 different weeks and observe; i'll admit, actually pretty cool to people watch. But then we had to write a 10 page paper about something we'd observe. I never have too much trouble writing papers, and I couldn't figure out anything to write. We also had a lot of reading, which you sometimes you never ended up having to read because she puts the whole plot down in her handout. Basically if you want a class where you don't have to go to class and you only have 2 test and 2 papers, this class is for you.
