Although this course was reading heavy, (for a stem major), all materials were very interesting and were always helpful when writing essays for her class. The class had a great mix of collaborative work and individual and I felt like the only place where this class caused me to lose sleep was with readings. Rachel Joo also always gave the opportunity to revise essays which was nice to have.

I really enjoyed professor Joo. She is clearly so passionate about what she is teaching, and that translates to your own enjoyment of the material. Definitely pretty easy, very minimal work, discussion posts that are graded for completion, and only 2 papers. Would take again!

The readings in the class are very easy to read. The readings are mostly important for the discussion boards which are due every two weeks. The discussion boards can take time due to the word count but are very easy to understand. The class is also very easy to understand. There is a presentation that is mandatory to do but it only is 5 minutes. This class is great to take!

The coursework is for sure interesting and relevant although at times It feels like we are beating a dead horse. Joo is a really wonderful and knowledgeable professor and person, however, I find her lectures boring and uninteresting. As long as you put in just enough effort, you're golden.

This class is very informative, and Professor Joo is very knowledgeable on the subject. The readings can be a bit long and heavy, but otherwise the workload is very light. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone with any interest on the subject!

The class was delightful. We had something to post every week based on the reading/ a video/ movie. It was very low-stress. We also had 3 papers. I really enjoyed how varied the material was for the course. We watched movies, read interesting books, read short articles, and did academic research. I would recommend it, the professor is awesome!

I learned a lot in this course. The readings are interesting, easy to grasp but really informative. The papers/projects were creative and flexible. Prof Joo really cares about the material and students, so overall a really good class to take, not super challenging and very interesting!

The content itself was very interesting, though Professor Joo didn't seem super enthusiastic / passionate in class. There are a lot of readings, but she goes over the content again in class so you can kind of pick and choose which homework you want to do. Interesting a laid back.

Prof. Joo aims to make the class as interactive as possible and expects you to participate for the grade. The lectures and slides presented are easy to digest. You get one quiz and two essays, which are easy to complete. The weekly assignments are graded based on completion, which makes the class super chill.

This class was pretty chill and the material was interesting. I think I would have liked the lectures and papers to be more organized but either way I didn't mind the class. The professor is really sweet and she loves insightful discussions.
