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

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

Prof. Steinkoler is a person who for all her intelligence lacks one thing, a heart. The woman is vicious in her criticisms which in no way are constructive. An example is once a student was absent and she proceeded to butcher her paper and call it "garbage" while constantly sighing in frustration and fixing her hair. She apparently forgets that she is teaching freshman in college who come from all walks of life and need help rather than bashing behind the back. If you want to listen to interesting commentary in regards to literature, take the class. Just be warned that her mouth and pen are her strongest weapons and that in the end everything she teaches is simply elegantly regurgitated and easily found in books on the literature we read.

Workload:

papers every few weeks of decent length, she is usually flexible with dates
