    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While this course does spark adequate critical thinking, the workload is unreal. I have more work for her class alone than the rest of my classes combined. The course is very disorganized; we have many different groups to do different assignments instead of having one group to complete the assignments with. It is very confusing, unfortunately.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course, personally, was reading and discussing Herland by Charolette Perkins Gilman. I was very passionate about the subject at hand, and Mrs. Beasley seemed to be as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would not take this course unless you are willing to take on all of that work. Even with putting in time, I still do not make great grades in her class. No, I am not failing, but a B will not cut it for me. This is supposed to be the easiest class, yet that's the class that I have the lowest grade in.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Freakonomics is a very difficult yet rewarding course. The class applies basic economics knowledge in different, relatable scenarios and situations. The books are filled with interesting examples of these applications. Throughout the course, you will read two books on Freakonomics and read numerous articles that correlate to the chapter for that week. Although there is reading due each week, the reading is manageable and very interesting. The class requires critical thinking, and at the end of the course, you will have a better view of the world as well as better developed critical thinking skills that you can apply throughout any situation in life.

    Course highlights:

    Freakonomics provided a different outlook on economics in an interesting and engaging way. This course taught me to always question things and look deeper into the meaning. Many of the examples in the chapters are very interesting and bazar (like understanding how sumo wrestlers and teachers are similar), but these examples help prove a point and enforce the ideas and concepts. This class forces you to look at the relationship between different things and understand why certain things happen. "Is it correlation or causation?" is a common question asked throughout the course to better understand the reasoning of explanations of certain phenomena.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be nervous if you have not taken an economics course. This class deals with basic concepts of economics (like supply and demand), and the professor explains what you need to know. Always read the designated chapter and read all of the articles. Take notes on all of the articles and understand how they relate to the chapters. This class will require time out of class to read the chapter and corresponding articles, but I would definitely recommend taking this course because it has been one of my favorite courses at GCSU.
