professor lemelson really tries to give you a feel for what it would be like as a graduate student. he really tried to engage students and is happy to answer all questions by sometimes turning lectures into a semi discussion type course. there is a separate discussion section to 133G which is also very interesting. the research oral presentation was cake with each group or pair going every week starting week 2. you also have the option of doing 2 medium sized papers or one long paper which is worth a lot of your final grade. there is no final exam!! i had more time to study for my other classes because i chose to do the big paper which was due at week 8. biweekly assignments (2 page mini papers due at discussion) are based on your own commmentatires of the week's readings.
i highly recommend taking this class. not only is it easy, you'll learn some interesting things about cultural development.
i love the 133G class with Dr. Lemelson. he is not only very organized, very caring about his students but also very stimulating as a lecturer. i loved going to class and engaging in the class discussions. i would highly recommend this class!
I thought this was a wonderful class. Lemelson is extemely interesting and brings himself to a personal level with his students. He actually takes the time to e-mail the class himself and approaches the learning process differently than any other psychology professor that I have taken at UCLA. There are no crazy multiple choice exams. Only papers and projects, which are not too bad because you always get to choose what you want to write about. Lecture is not mandatory, although every time I went there was always a full house with people sitting on the steps. That shows you that his lectures are pretty interesting. I thought they were! I would suggest this class to anyone. Its been one of my favorites.
During these last 4 years, I have not met many professors concerned with student learning. Professor Lemelson is definetly one of these professors. I was not very interested in the material before I took his class, but I did learn alot and I enjoyed what I was learning. He is an awesome professor who seems to truly care about his students. UCLA is lucky to have a professor like him.
