Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
This class was extremely insightful and interesting. As this course was my Eloquentia Perfecta class, we spoke in a discussion-based environment, which was very welcoming and encouraging of all students to share their thoughts and ideas. Although I do not plan on continuing to study anthropology, this class has definitely helped me consider different cultures and allowed me to become more open-minded and aware of the world around me.
Primarily, I learned about different world cultures. The class read bi-weekly articles from published anthropologists and discussed our own thoughts on how the world worked in places that we've never been and for reasons that we may not have understood prior to taking this course. The largest takeaway that I received from this course is that anthropologists are not interested in solving the world's problems. That task is much too large to be completed by a single group of worldwide professionals. Instead, anthropologists strive to understand. With this mindset, I believe the world could be a much better place. With just the single ability to understand, the world's problems and conflicts could be absolved.

Advice for students:
The key to success in this class is very simple. Students merely need to follow class instructions. Keep up with the bi-weekly readings, post a small paragraph online about your thoughts on the readings, and come to class prepared to discuss what you have read. Most significantly, do not write more than the suggested amount for essays.
