    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Goldberg is witty and fun to listen to. She chooses interesting material to read and really helps you develop your own research ideas. Goldberg had us create speeches about a topic we had researched over the course of the semester. Through her insightful comments and criticisms, I became a more confident public speaker.

    Course highlights:

    We read "I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem" and "The Crucible" to compare the representation, or lack thereof, of Tituba in the Salem Witch Trials. It showed me how everyone has a "second story" and how different sides to people can just be lost to time if we let them. As mentioned before I also learned how to create and perform a well rounded informative and persuasive speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the readings and really listen to her. Her messages are really important and are applicable to daily life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class, while dull and at times repetitive, taught me a great deal about ancient philosophy and the ever-changing shift between rhetoric in 2000 B.C. and today.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts of this course were the easy, ten point assignments that inflated your grade and ensured securing at least a B in the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students taking this course that the material is boring, but not unbearable.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As far as the curriculum is concerned, the things I learned were not only just applicable outside the classroom in other classes, but in life in general as rhetoric seemed to be more prevalent all the time and I would constantly hear the word now that I have a better understanding of it. Also, the scaffolding tactic made it a lot easier to construct arguments and write different pieces since everything related to each other. It created a very circular type of learning that confirmed my hard work in the class and permitted me to complete assignments in a confident fashion, since current tasks felt like something I had previously completed. Personally, the make or break components of a class consist of a unique professor, connecting students and an insightful curriculum; therefore, this class did not only meet that criteria, but it far excelled my expectations. Furthermore, I have been provided with useful insights into my progress in speaking, thinking and writing. Finally, though thinking was implicit in any activity, discussion or exam in the course, I still became more aware of certain life lessons that have subconsciously integrated themselves into daily life. Since the beginning of the year, I have been progressing toward accepting a life in the grey where everything is together. I am starting to reconcile the fact that it is permissible to keep going in the dark as long as you have faith that the path you are on will lead you in the right direction. I was reminded to get an education for more than just the grade and to be excellent because a “good person” is about action, not only intent

    Course highlights:

    The professor was relatable, quirky and innovative, making each day something different to look forward to, especially with our 6 minute complain window on Mondays. We also had incredible class chemistry that made it easy to express one's opinion in a safe space knowing others would not only respect your opinion, but would respond to it in a challenging, interactive way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in the work, and it won't be difficult at all. In fact, it won't seem like work and without realizing it, you'll see how each of the lessons and activities have a very circular direction applicable in life and other activities in the class.
