Comments on the course

The course includes both the textbook and the novel "Holes' (really easy read, short chapters). Basically each week you're meant to connect the concept that you read about in the textbook to the book 'Holes'. I'm not sure how the class is being conducted now, but during the summer each week in the discussion groups you would be split into different groups to collectively answer the questions and submit as a group. Then there was the option of either a final exam or final essay. Content was interesting, connecting it to the novel worked to tie it all together. I wish I could have seen a little more contextualizing into broader contemporary social issues, but it worked.

Comments on the professor

Neil may come off as passive aggressive at first, but that's just his sense of humor. Office hours are helpful if you need help with writing your essay.
