Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class was a special topics course, the topics included: Verbal, Intercultural, or Gender Communication. My class with Dan was focused on gender communication. Dan is a young, relatable teacher who has the students best interest at heart. He talked straight to the point and related the class material to his personal life and to the generational norms of people our age. He made the class very interesting and fun to learn! He also offered many chances for extra credit.
The highlights of this course were learning just how complex the term "gender" really is. Most people grow up learning that there is only two sides of gender; male or female. In today's ever-changing society, gender is not so black and white, there is a lot of grey area that is important to learn! I especially liked learning about feminism because it has become such a relevant topic in society, and I believe it is important to learn every aspect of this topic before taking a stance on it. The course was definitely very eye-opening, with a lot of valuable information to be gained from taking it.

Advice for students:
Definitely take notes in class, there is no book so the exams are straight from what Dan says in lecture. Also don't forget to participate in the weekly class discussions! They are all opinion-based topics, so they are easy points to earn as long as you participate. Lastly, take advantage of the extra-credit opportunities, they add up and really helped me achieve a 4.0 in the class!
