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

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

Likeable, nerdy, and ever so slightly narcissistic, this definitely felt like a class with a graduate student, but not always in a bad way. For example, with all of his own work, he's not as eager to dole out lots of essays. It's a student discussion-fueled course, but he really enjoys talking too... Good grades on re-writes are easy: insert and elaborate all the ideas he suggests. He's also exceptionally understanding about giving out extensions. The class itself can seem like a chore unless you manage to get really into it. In the meantime, Karl's a fine teacher.
