    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Spaulding's lectures are fast paced and almost everything that he mentions in class can be crucial to your next essay. Assignments include 3 essays (1 essay is the final), a book report, and map assignments. Seems fairly reasonable. However, Dr. Spaulding does not grade anything. He lets his TA's do all the grading and they are very picky. For a map assignment, you can get points off (and by points off, I mean earn a C) if you have a city 1 millimeter away from where they think it should be. Although there is tough grading, if asked in class, Dr. Spaulding will allow a 3x5 note card for your essay written in class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that visiting the TA's office regularly and making sure they get to know your name/face, can pay off in the long run. Since the TA's graded everything for the course, it was necessary to get on their good side and ask questions about essays and assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Visit it TA's office hours regularly and go to every single lecture, even though you may not feel like it, it pays off in the end.
