    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very fun class- Don is very engaging in his lectures

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight was going in the lab and doing gram stains

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay focused. Learning about microbes and disease is not the easiest subject in biology.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I encourage every student to take the Microbes and Disease course because it deals with a wide range of information. For example, there are a lot of group projects and presentations. You not only learn from your teacher but you learn from each other. A lot of time is spend in the lab. You will participate in different lab activities such as growing your own bacteria culture and identifying an unknown bacteria through a series of lab tests. Dr. Donald Dosch is invested in helping students learn as much as possible. He is there to answer your questions (even if he answers it with another question to encourage you to work through it), read any summaries you write, and to be your mentor.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included learning about dangerous viruses such as Pox virus and HIV. We learned about how the body reacts to such dangers and what these viruses target. We worked in groups to research a virus to present to the class. As I mentioned before, this class involves a lot of presentations and group projects. We learn by doing and participating, and we learn from each other.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd encourage every student to write summaries on the lessons (after reviewing their notes), or at least review their notes daily and ask questions. This class has daily quizzes, though only three points, they can affect your grade. Writing summaries to clarify your understanding will only help you. Sometimes there are concepts you may think you understand, but when tested on, it turns out you didn't know it as well as you thought. Writing summaries and having your teacher review them ensures that you understand the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Don was very straightforward with his expectations for the course and is of course characteristically caustic and funny. While there was a lot of work (wouldn't recommend it for second semester senior year), I definitely learned a lot.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about microbe structure and did significant lab work. Plus, Don was very willing to talk outside of class and encouraged people to come in and work on lab stuff outside of class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you're willing to do lab work during some of your free time. Also, study for the quizzes!
