I loved this class. The other reviewer clearly just didn't show up to class, it's what you make of it. He was extremely engaging in lecture and the readings were interesting. At times he would make changes to the syllabus, but that was always to accommodate the students complaining about too much reading, so it was ultimately in service to us. The assignments were reasonable and the grading wasn't too harsh because his emphasis was on learning the material, not earning a grade. Overall, I loved this class and enjoyed lectures and would highly recommend it.

I thought I would write a quick review for those who are planning to take this class as an online GE during summer:

There are basically only 2 aspects to the course if I remember correctly - one is to reply/post on the CCLE forum, and the other is a set of 3 papers you do over the 6 week period. All 3 papers are really really short (the first two are 5 pages and the last one is like 7 pages or something). Once I had detailed plans for each paper, I made 15 minute zoom appointments with my TA, who was really helpful. She gave me insight on what I was doing well and what needed to be improved. I ended up getting 100% on all 3 papers, and a A+ in the class. Dr. Kelley is really cool in real life but his recorded lectures were actually a little monotonous. The lecture lengths range, but it usually took me 3 hours to get through a 1 hour lecture because of the notes you have to take. He speaks really fast.

P.S. You don't actually have to do the readings, but you must have some general idea of what is going on because you will need to cite the book for the papers.

The group project is a joke, but the Midterm and Final essays require some real reading and critical thought. Professor Kelley is a star professor. He's extremely clear in lecture and thinks outside of the box. I'm sad I only found him my last quarter, I would have liked to take more classes with him.
