    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class! Brian is an excellent teacher who tries to know each student in his classroom by name. The course was challenging at times but, the open discussions made learning easier. The information learned in the classroom applied not only to teaching situations but also to dealing with other people in real life situations. Even if you are not an education major, I would suggest taking this class anyways. The class will give you a look into the minds of children and different factors that attribute to personality traits.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that most children are eager to learn in their early years. They are open to new ideas and it is important to present ideas in a way children can understand them. Being helpful, patient and understanding helps children to realize you are on their side and learning can be fun! Discouragement is one of the biggest reasons children lose interest in learning. It is important to take time to understand each child and their learning needs so as to teach them in a way they will understand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always show up to class! There is an incredible amount of information that is presented discussed in each class period. Come prepared to work with others and openly discuss. A large part of your grade is based on whether or not you participated in group discussions. Group projects are another important part of this class. There are multiple group presentations you will be required to participate in. One of Mr. Raftery's favorite things to do is to, instead of sitting in class and reading the chapter, split the chapter into groups and have each group teach the class about the chapter. The professor believes there is much we can learn from each other because each person has a different mind. Therefore, come ready to express your opinions and learn from others.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Danuser is probably one of the greatest at GCU! I'm a psych major and took his class for fun and honestly I had a blast!

    Course highlights:

    There was so much structure to his class that you knew what you were walking into every day. I learned many critical vocabulary terms that I can utilize in my profession.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Flashcards! Flashcards! Flashcards! There's an exam every other week and knowing the vocab is crucial! He recommends reading the chapters (which is exhausting!) but definitely worth it! There are also a few "trick questions" of ideas we didn't discuss in class explicitly.
