Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Steingraeber takes what seems like a boring subject and brings it to life. He tries to cater to all learning styles by using different teaching methods. He'll vary between using slides, lecture, the document camera, and video to get his point across. Sometimes he will even bring in samples or do wild demonstrations to keep the class engaged. This is also helped by his personality, as he is always energetic when talking. He will go out of his way to help students in his class.
In the beginning, the class was mostly about cell structure, which was a review from high school. However, this class focused on plant cells, and we went further into the anatomy than any teacher has done before. After this, we focused on different plants and why they look like they do. Dr. Steingraeber was particularly excited to teach us how each plant interacts with the environment around it.

Advice for students:
Take good notes in class, and pay attention when Dr. Steingraeber hints at something. He usually puts subjects hinted at on the tests. Study with a few other students from that class, because often someone will make a subject easier to understand when in a group. If you are still confused, go to office hours.
