Ciolkowski, Laura
First Year Seminar: Women and Culture II

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

The readings were much more than I had anticipated because I had taken W&C:I and thought it was going to be like that..not exactly. now, my review of prof. c. may be biased because she reminds me of a teacher from h.s. who is like her doppleganger, but bipolar. while prof. c. is on the manic/happy side, the other teacher swung from manic to depression within a matter of minutes. so i am going to cut prof. c. a lot of slack. she does try very hard to bring the material to life (which is difficult considering the material). she has enthusiasm for material that i honestly dont know how anyone could. a very loud enthusiasm. she will force a discussion, she will not pick on the person who always raises her hand. she will force you to do a presentation on a book (with a partner), save yourself and pick a book you have already read. she is approachable (she really wants you to speak with her), and she will grade down on your revisions if you only do what she tells you to do. work hard, and then some. read the texts, learn to speak up if you aren't the type to speak up, and go to her for help on essays.

Workload:

2 essays with a revision each (which she counts more, and harder), one big research essay (which could have a creative part to it) in the end, one presentation with a partner (basically, you act like the professor of the class for the class time).
