    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because not only is it very vital to learn the lessons in this specific course, but the learning process was very fun and the professor made it amazing. Professor Black is a very intelligent and easy-going professor who taught you the information and lectures until it stuck in your brain. She did not make it easy, but she was excessively helpful, sweet and entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the high lights of this specific course was learning how to write research papers. Our professor assigned us three major papers and one big project that was more than 50% of our final grade. Our first paper was about development as an adolescent and we had to write 8 pages using an experience that impacted our lives for the better. The second paper was a choice and the first option was to write an anecdote about our favorite memory and how it lead us to where we are now. The second option was to write an experience that had a negative impact on own lives and how we changed for the better. My professor shared so much brilliant insight on this course and I knew she was very passionate about what she was teaching. She loved teaching and she enjoyed watching her students succeed and she did everything she could until you learned the lesson.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Best way to succeed this course is by listening to the lectures, participating in the debates or the group activities, and to do the work. Study for the exams, midterms and final and most of all, put your own effort into your work. She is extremely helpful and she can answer any question you have. She will teach you the information until your brain bleeds, she is very efficient and all she wants is to see her students succeed. The course is extremely easy if you just try and give your best effort.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    this class is a requirement so you have to take it but i recommend this teacher because even though i didn't during a summer term and they go fast, i recommend this professor because she explains and with her you do learn what she is talking about.

    Course highlights:

    i learned how to go more in deep with my essays and how to expand them and put two arguments or two papers together.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    just do ur reading before and annotate.

    Hours per week:

    Advice for students:

    Do the research project a head of time, so that when it is due you will have finished it way before it is due.
