Professor Juvshik was very interested in the content of the course. As long as you did the reading you would be successful in the class as every class is a large discussion. There were also a few writing pieces that put together what you learned in the course.

I really enjoyed this course! We had about 7-8 writing assignments that correlated to class readings and discussions, but generally the writing was more informal. He is big on in-class participation, so coming prepared having read all the material was a game changer. I enjoyed that Juvshik allowed for creative freedom in the topics we included in our writing; he wanted us to be able to respond to the readings we individually found most valuable and interesting. We ended the class with a low stakes, in class debate which was a fun way to do group work and dive into some real-world ethical dilemmas. Overall, would definitely recommend!

I would say this class is definitely a solid option for people looking to get their DED credit or just have a class that requires minimal writing. Professor Grasswick is a fair grader - she won't go easy on you but she will also explain your mistakes well and all the feedback makes sense. She is also super nice and enthusiastic so the class never feels stressful to attend if that makes sense. Overall, the material is a little difficult to understand and it doesn't really apply to real life much, but if you practice often it is definitely manageable and there are lots of little assignments to keep your grade up.
