Professor Anderson really cares about his students, but goes about it in a pretty rude way. He is really blunt and laughs at students' responses to his questions. The class on the whole was easy, though. Each week you have to write a 500 word (usually less) response on the CCLE forum and respond to 3 classmates' posts, attend lecture, and at the end of the class you have to turn in a 5000 word essay. He never told us the breakdown of the grades, so I'm not sure of the percentages for each of those. He is really confusing when talking about the paper, but if you go to office hours he makes a lot more sense. He goes on a lot of tangents to his days in politics and they're interesting but not really applicable to the class. Update: the whole grade is your paper and he grades it incredibly arbitrarily. Do not take.

TOok him for 20.
Did not open book or attend lecture. Attended discussion only because attendance was required.
Passed with an A-. in lecture he just reads his slides. He posts his slides online so just read them there and then you'll do just fine. Easy Easy EASY A.
