    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sharon has such a great course offered! She makes the course very intriguing with her electric and exciting perspective on the course materials. She does not present the information like your traditional teacher would approach. It is laid out so that we are learning the materials, without feeling the pressure of just reading a bunch of studies. Instead she adapts the materials so that it is learner-friendly for all types of learners. Sharon is really good at explaining the information and keeping it up to date with today's terms. Lastly is the amount of videos on certain studies we watch. This creates opportunities for us visual learners to have a chance at understanding the materials.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me include the topic on conformity and how we are exposed to different types daily, without even realizing it! I think for any student it is a better learning experience when you are able to witness the first-hand usage of what you learned in life outside of class and how these issues really can be applied to our daily lives. It serves as reassurance that you're not learning these things for no reason or that the information is just temporary.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students considering this course is to not be nervous, but open your mind to receive this new information and don't be afraid to question why certain norms are the way they are. Sharon loves when we question the theories or how studies were done back then, and still now. Asking questions shows that you are interested enough to wonder why for certain things and want to know more. This course is very inclusive to all genders, sexes, and races. Even though some people tend to stray away from psychology but you find yourself going about your day, seeing and applying the information learned without even realizing it! It is truly amazing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course applies general ideas of health and fitness to real life scenarios. Sharon is extremely passionate about the material and puts in real effort to ensure her lessons make impact in her students' life.

    Course highlights:

    The course includes participation points - including participation to an event called Fitness 4 Finals, where students can participate in free yoga classes, in free meditation classes, spend time with therapy dogs, engage in art therapy, and other activities to help reduce stress during finals week. I loved participating in fitness 4 finals and I learned that physical activity (kinesiology: the science of human movement) is a lifestyle. It's a way to be passionate about how the body works and how to inspire others to strive for a healthy lifestyle.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The material isn't difficult. Unlike other courses, it's not just about memorizing facts to spill onto a test. However, there is a lot of work - tiny assignment and projects. I believe the points added up in the thousands and I remember reading a review saying that the assignments were "tedious." So you definitely have to apply yourself and stay on track with the assignments/projects.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The reason that I do recommend this class is because it is so interesting looking at the way that individuals when in a social environment behave in a different way just to fit into a crowd/group and most don't even know that it is happening.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this class, I have actually noticed the way my friends more when i'm around them versus meeting someone for the first time is completely different. Also, the way that they want to fit into society instead of being there own person. Probably the greatest part of this class was the teacher Sharon Jalene, she is a very calm and personable person. She is very interesting, also when away from school she teaches yoga, and helps UFC fighters heal physiologically after taking a beating in the ring. The class also does get to meet a few of the UFC fighters throughout the semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to everyone in this class is to really pay attention to the teacher closely, she gives a lot of information verbally and is useful on quizzes and exams. Also, don't be afraid to approach the teacher she is very understanding and kind, She will help you individually if you need help.
