    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Sinclair is a wonderful teacher who grades fairly and loves teaching Human Ecology.

    Course highlights:

    The final project is a slideshow featuring a topic you learned about in class and tying it in with S.P.E.E.C.H. It's a fun assignment. I got 100/100 on it. My file was so large I had to upload it on YouTube as a video.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the work. Anything is better than a 0. He grades fairly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course for anyone who intends to work with people, social workers, nursing aids and nurses, recreational therapist, etc. This course provides knowledge about how we humans are impacting the Earth we live on and how we are suffering the consequences of our influences to this planet. Information such as this can be useful when determining why certain people behave the way they do, eat the things they eat, or the traditional beliefs that they have. I feel that this and other things are important to consider when developing a plan or providing assistance to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    The two things that stood out to me the most were the impacts of our carbon footprint on this planet and the theory of the quadruple squeeze. Both of these concepts emphasized on how we have impacted our planet negatively. Things like cars, the food we choose to buy and eat, other methods of travel, our commerce and trade methods, waste disposal, and overpopulation have all contributed to the weakening of our planet Earth. After reading about each of these concepts I took it upon myself to try to reduce my household carbon footprint but choosing alternative heating and cooking methods, properly disposing everything, and driving as less as possible. These changes can also help to decrease the pressure from the quadruple squeeze, on my part.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course has a very extensive reading load. I recommend completing all of the required reading before beginning the assignment for that particular week. Unfortunately, I was not prepared at all for the amount of reading that was required for this course. I did find that the more that I was able to get read before doing my assignments the better I did with that assignment.
