my experience in this class was pretty different.
it was taught by a new prof, dr. yong.
he clearly hated the class, as did many of the students.
i personally didn't mind it that much. it was pretty boring, and the readings were tedious and long.
he also didn't make a coursepack, forcing us to photocopy $15 worth of readings that were on course reserve at the library.
- 4 middle stakes (basically one page single spaced summaries of readings. he shortened it to 3)ake
- midterm paper (8-10 pages)
- take home exam essay (8-10 pages)
- attendance and participation
overall, i think he would be a very interesting prof perhaps in a different course situation. he had a lot of stories about field work which are always fun to hear.
