This course was very interesting and did not require too much time outside of class. There are roughly two papers plus one independent project. Professor Shapiro is very enthusiastic as well as lenient. She makes the time to meet with students and gives thoughtful feedback.

Shawna Shapiro is a wonderful professor. She was very understanding and willing to work with students and talk with them about anything they needed. The class itself was quite easy. It was mostly discussion based, which made it easier to bounce off others' ideas.

The course consisted of short readings (about 10-15 pages per class), a few papers and presentations, and discussions. No exam and Professor Shapiro is a lenient grader. Also, she is one of the most understanding professors I've had at Midd! Her care for her students and passion for Sociolinguistics made the class enjoyable. She gives detailed feedback on students' essays, too.
