Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because the professor was really engaged. For one, she not only talks the talk, but also walks the walk only. She teaches social problems process on how to attempt to fix them and such, when she is also a social problems activist herself. When I had her class, she started a protests because they murdered a mother and her daughter in her hometown of Long Beach. One day she came in fired up because the mayor of her city sent her a message telling her to quite down because she was making Long Beach ghetto when she was saying that there is a problems with gangs, the mayor reached out to her because she felt that Joy was scaring away investors. Professor came in mad showing us the actual evidence and telling us that she wouldn't back down. Another great thing is that there is no tests to worry about so people don't just study to remember the thing for the test, but remember them for a longer time.
Some things I learned were that social problems activists burn out faster because they go in all eager and working hard just to find out that it's too much. Also that social problems activists have to remember to take care of themselves first or they can't care for others.

Advice for students:
The advice I give is to go in with an open mind, ready to learn and actually pay attention, and if you go into this class or even the major/job profession tied to this class you should enjoy helping others.
