Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Lobel is an incredibly engaging lecturer, who can make even common sense topics really interesting and insightful. She makes a great effort to get to know every student beyond simply being a name on the attendance roster!
One of the highlights of this course was the level of student involvement - Dr. Lobel really invited discussion and participation. Her class on prejudice was especially illuminating (and emotional) as she had students share their own experiences with prejudice to show how prevalent it is in today's world.

Advice for students:
Make sure you keep up with the readings - they aren't a lot, but it helps to read them as the lectures come up. Also, go to Dr. Lobel's office hours! Even if you don't have questions, you're guaranteed to learn something from her simply by having a discussion. The ESMs are an easy source of extra credit, and are also usually interesting.
