Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
I loved the anthropology part of this course- learning about human culture and how it has defined us for centuries is absolutely fascinating. And learning about what Anthropology is made me consider minoring in it- but the professor was extremely opinionated and tried to act "cool," when really he was just kind of annoying.
I loved learning about how to look at a culture from their own perspective. We talked a lot about NGOs and governments going into countries and thinking they know what is best for the people there, so they build houses and wells, when in reality, the people want a school and books for their children. When you don't consider the perspective of the people you are helping or studying, you become extremely ethnocentric.

Advice for students:
DO THE READINGS. Those little quizzes you take really add up in points. If you do the readings and participate in class, then you are pretty much guaranteed a "B," and if you write the essays well, you'll get an easy "A".
