Pretty easy, overall.
This course taught me so much not only about how people think, but how to be the best teacher that I can be. Every class period we were given discussion questions to talk about in small groups, and then we would come together and discuss them as a whole class; always allowing for opinions on the topic to be shared. Of all my classes, I truly believe I learned some of the most knowledge and took away so much from that class.
One highlight of the course, although not fun, was it included DASA training which is very nice for my wallet as an aspiring educator in college. The professor I believe made the class. It was an 8am class and I was excited to go to class every morning, and that is a major accomplishment because getting up early is not my strong point. He really broke down all concepts for us; not in a direct, take note way, but in class conversation as the topic was brought up. To me, that made class not only fun, but interesting and beneficial. I learned about different theorists, learning styles, parenting styles, trends in schools, good learning environments, and the professor would often pretend to put us in situations in schools and ask us how would we respond to the situation as a teacher. I learned so much from that class and whole heartedly recommend it.

Pay attention in class and take notes! That always helped me when it came to his papers.
