Weinstock, Elizabeth
[FYSB BC1156/69] First Year Seminar: Legacy of the Mediterranean I

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

I haven't really made up my mind about Professor Weinstock. She's nice, and she fascilitates a good discussion. She got really excited about some of the material. I didn't feel that there was much direction in terms of what she expected on the papers. She left that to the writing fellows, and then I was always downgraded for not doing what she wanted...maybe that's not fair to say since it was my first college-level lit course, so something more is expected. However, when you can find that she is available, I advise discussing your paper idea with her first to get some feedback and focus. And participate in class--she likes that, and it can be really fun.

Workload:

a short close reading "practice" paper to begin, 2 papers w/writing fellow meetings and prof conferences afterward, and a final "creative" project. lots of reading, like any lit class.
