    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wood is very straightforward in his lectures and they are easy to follow. If you don't get everything down in your notes during class he puts the notes up on Canvas. He is also easy to meet with if you have any questions.

    Course highlights:

    In this course you learn about how children learn to socialize. Children begin learning language almost immediately after they are born. Also that the person you are today is not set in stone it is an ever changing process of socialization.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the full InQuizitive package and buy the book that Professor Wood says to or the course will be more difficult. The book he makes you buy has a free registration code for the site. Paying a little more for the book is worth it because you will also get the graphics that are referred to in the quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As far as introductory courses go, I would suggest avoiding this one for you Social Sciences requirement. In class tests are based on the lecture content only, so do not bring in any extra information from the internet. You are given about 45 min to complete 5 definitions, 3 short answer, and 1 essay. The essays are not only graded for content, but organization and all the other stuff you'd expect to be graded on in an English course. The online homework supposedly comes from the book, but I have not had that luck. Online open book exams are based on the book. It is helpful to have the online version of the textbook so you can ctrl+F the topic/question you're looking for. Also if you do well on your first test/paper, anything you get below your previous grade will average out and bring your grade down quite a bit. And 5 point attendance also makes a difference in the grade.

    Course highlights:

    I wouldn't say I gained anything learning how many people in the US use Facebook daily, but I did get a lot of homework for other classes done during this lecture.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are going to actually take notes during this lecture, don't just copy the key points from the slides. These are posted online so you can always come back to them. Consider taking digital notes so you can easily search the information you need for study guides. Also take notes on what the professor says to get enough information and examples for your in class test essay portion.
