First Year Seminar -- Family: Historically and Cross-Culturally

January 20, 2005

Weisgrau, Maxine
First Year Seminar -- Family: Historically and Cross-Culturally

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

While she had her faults, Professor Weisgrau was caring, interested, and involved in her class. We had incredibly varied and interesting readings and open-ended essays so that we could take our own view on whatever readings we decided to use. She talks too much (especially when she's specifically assigned someone to lead the class) and she does have a habit of searching for the "right" answer. Still, it was a great class. I'd recommend it to anyone who's not too judgemental--she's very politically correct, but keep and open mind and you'll enjoy her.

Workload:

really small amounts of nightly reading (but do it if you want to enjoy the class), and four 3-5 pages essays. very doable.
