Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted March 30, 2020 Grade Received: A

This class was actually really interesting. You only have to attend 5 lectures but I found myself going to more just because I wanted to. Also, it's Bruincasted so eventually I stopped going to Dodd and just watched lectures online. But she's a very educated person and a good professor. Would recommend this GE to anyone interested in philosophy! It wasn't hard if you just put in some effort.

Super light and interesting class- literally just show up to lecture, go to discussion, and do your reading. Participation using opt-in tickets and discussion attendance are counted in your grade, and but around 70% is weighted towards the one midterm and final. Reading quizzes (10%) are held three times throughout the quarter, with the lowest one dropped, and they're generally doable if you go through the texts and the study questions. The hardest part on the midterm and final are undoubtedly the T/F questions, as they're super tricky sometimes and they're worth a bunch of points. Essay questions are generally easy to answer as you get a lot of exposure as to how to answer them throughout lecture and discussion. Pro-tip: I'd sit up front if you can- her mic is sometimes a little quiet and it helps to hear her clearly!

I felt like this class was actually very interesting, and if you go to lecture/watch Bruincasts and pay attention, the concepts are relatively easy to learn. Participation matters, as you usually do an “opt-in” ticket for at least 5 lectures, which you either write a question, or volunteer to have a chance to be called on randomly in lecture to answer a question. As long as you submit a ticket, you get credit. You have 3 quizzes based on readings, which are usually pretty easily graded and as long as you do the reading and go to lecture you’ll be fine.
