Professor Ward is an engaging professor who was very fun to learn from. The discussion posts were helpful in my understanding of the material. He was accommodating and a fair grader. If you study the handouts, you will do fine on the exams!

Professor Ward isn't the best lecturer, but the readings and sources make this class worth taking. I would have preferred a seminar-style though--with a smaller class but full group discussions (he is a much better discussion leader than lecturer). Beware of 500 word weekly discussion posts. I also wish there was a big paper rather than all the "journal entries."

Professor Ward was excellent. He was really passionate about this course and its subject and really thorough in his lectures, and helping us understand the reading. He also went out of his way to make sure we could meet with him during office hours and was good at answering questions. Although the short response/essay portions of the exams were difficult he gave us the tools in class to help us by telling us the structure of the exams and extensively reviewing things in class that could be on the exam. If you keep up on the readings for discussion and pay attention in class you will be fine in this course and get the benefit of a great professor.
