[FYSB BC1436] Families, Feminisms and States

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

You either like her, or you don't. By the end of the semester my class was pretty set on hating her because recently she'd started interrupting people during discussions and rather than respectfully disagreeing with things, saying someone was wrong as if it were a fact when we were all stating opinions. She lectures during discussions, but at least she admits it. She knows she doesn't and if she's got the energy and she's in the mood she tries her hardest to avoid it.

Getting advice from her on a paper is pretty confusing. She doesn't make much sense and she sometimes talks in circles. You leave the room certain she didn't like your idea but clueless as to what to write about.

She's a pretty easy grader-- no one in the class got less than a B, but only a few got A- and even less got As. Sometimes it was obvious what you'd done wrong, and other times it was totally confusing and she did not clear it up.

The material and the readings are interesting, and the discussions were usually interesting. The papers were tough and sometimes a hassle but other times enjoyable.

Workload:

twice weekly readings, four papers
