LECTURES:
Professor Matsumoto is very organized and clear in her lectures, but I think she's just reading off a paper most of the time. She doesn't take questions from the class - I always saw one girl in the front raising her hand for the first few weeks, but she stopped because she was never called on even though the professor saw her. Everyone thinks you can skip her lectures, but her lectures are a bit different from the readings, AND if you use info from the lectures in your midterms, you get credit.

HOMEWORK:
You write a journal entry about what you learned in your readings, show some thought/analysis in them, and relate to them somehow.

MIDTERMS:
The midterms required you to know SPECIFIC facts, anecdotes, numbers, laws, places, people. SPECIFIC and from ALL of your readings. She gives out 6 questions a week before the midterm. A few of these questions are chosen to be on the midterm. I recommend forming a study group, assigning a person to each question and basically WRITING the whole essay with SPECIFIC and RELEVANT info from ALL of the readings.
