Professor Jennifer Braddock Reviews
Prof: Jennifer Braddock / Fall 2021
Dec 27, 2021
Relatively easy if you stay on top of things. There is a discussion post weekly as well as a quiz. There are 3 major assignments (a group assignment, an individual powerpoint with presenter notes, and a reflection paper).
The content is somewhat interesting. Not all useful. It is all presented from an online interactive textbook. There are some typos in there. The recorded lectures are embedded in the book and the discussion questions are embedded in the lectures. There are usually 2-4 lectures per week. I found reading the subtitles easier than actually listening.
Did not have many if any live interactions with her. She uses a very monotone way of speaking on her recorded lectures though. She was quick to adjust to our feedback though (added subtitles after a comment from a student, switched quizzes over to canvas instead of the textbook site etc).
DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE FOR THE POWERPOINT. IT IS MORE THAN YOU THINK WHEN YOU FIRST LOOK AT IT. I tried to do it a day or two before it was due. I ended up turning it in 2 weeks late (partially due to bad mental health but also due to just how much there is)
