Quarter: Winter 2020
Grade: A
March 31, 2020

This was my first seminar class, and I want to let ppl know that this class is very different from other lecture classes. The general structure is mostly to do readings at home, come to class to discuss it, and the professor would lead the discussion& clarify important things. We are not informed of the participation grade/ paper grade but only know a final letter grade, but here are a few things that I think are important
1. Participation matters. In the syllabus, participation takes 30 percent of the grade!
2. The workload is HEAVY. For each lecture, we need to read 1-3 papers (30-100 pages). In order to do well in participation, you need to be prepared, which means to do the readings. The professor may also call people's names to ask questions if he thinks those people are not active in discussions.
3. Papers are long. We wrote an annotated bibliography (~15 sources) and a final paper. The final paper was 6-10 pages single spaced
4. BUT, you will find the lectures very interesting if you do the readings. Professor Kellman is very knowledgeable& esteemed in this field, and I really did learn a lot in this class

This class was pretty easy and very manageable to keep up with. There were 2 weekly readings and you have to do a paper on them like twice a quarter. 2 papers compose a majority of your grade. I didn't do too many of the readings, you can probably do the same. Professor Kellman is a good guy and a great lecturer, take this class. Also I'm selling my course reader for cheap!!

The course reader is usually $$$$, I'm selling mine very gently used for cheap! Text 9163975006.

Absolutely love taking classes with Kellman. I also had him for Psych 85, which made this class 100% better because there is some content overlap and the teaching style is the same. In the gradebook there are two papers, as well as some short responses to the readings. There are a lot of readings, but all very comprehensible - if they're hard, he knows it and will go over them sufficiently in class. He's a great professor and very helpful, and definitely makes it easy to get a good grade if you make it clear you are trying/doing the readings.

I wasn't sure what to expect for this class when I first signed up, but the grade distributions looked good so I thought 'why not'?

Its not bad. You do have to buy a 2-part course reader for $$$, and reading and discussion is the bulk of the class. He will call on you, so make sure you actually do the reading.

Not going to lie, the reading can be really dense. I maybe understood 30% of it, but Dr. Kellman does a really good job of explaining it. You can tell he really understands this topic. But be prepared to devote a significant amount of time to reading, some papers took me a good 2 hrs.

Grades are made up of participation, an annotated bibiliography (~35 soruces), and a 7-10 page SINGLE SPACED paper.

My only complaint was that we got no feedback or grades for anything we turned in. We just got one final grade at the end.
