[H]er class is pretty straighforward. 3 essays (2~3 pgs.), you read about 3 articles/week and have to do a 1 pg journal per article and a 1 page summary about one of the articles. Don't get me wrong, this class is easy and Dr. Bates cancels class a few times and lets you go early all the time because she never has enough material prepared for the 2hr block. Oh, also for every essay, you bring it in once for peer review and then turn in a final copy the next week, which makes the class hella(norcal...sorry) easy. And there are no midterms and no finals. TAKE THIS TEACHER!!
Bates is a great professor. She tends to go off on a tangent every once in a while with her funny comments and stories, which definitely made the class more interesting. The class is definitely not hard either. The only homework you have is to keep a journal about articles you read and it's really easy if you do it weekly. Don't wait till the last minute!! There are only three essays and I would recommend bates to anyone taking this class.
