Frank, Claudine
First Year Seminar: Secret Societies

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

Professor Frank, while a genuinely nice person, is quite hindered by her fluttery personality and general flakiness. She is unclear about what she wants in papers, and does not seem to pay attention to students in class except for a few very talkative favorites. Secret Societies sounds more interesting than it is, as the books are kind of inaccessible and boring, with a few not-so-bad ones thrown in.


Four 4-6 page papers on books/movies. Very easy workload. Fairly easy grading, and re-writes are accepted and expected.
