Pros: Grades the paper and journals very leniently.
Cons: If you wait till the last second to do everything it's a bit much. 1 8page paper 4 3page journal entries and a final to end the semester.
Great teacher, but the lectures are boring and straight from the PowerPoint.

Grant is THE most vanilla professor I have ever encountered. This material isn’t boring, but the class isn’t interesting. It’s not hard, but it’s not easy either. I would avoid taking this class with Grant simply because you will hate going to class.

Pros: Interesting course, with interesting videos
Cons: She reads directly off powerpoints the entire class. She is extremely boring, and majority of the readings are completely irrelevant to the topic in today's society.
DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS WITH GRANT AS A MAYMESTER. She does not know how to teach a maymester. I could have taken this class online and found it more interesting and helpful. She takes her test questions directly off the powerpoint, and most people didn't even do the readings because of this. I did all the readings, and made a C on the first test because I didn't study the powerpoints as much as the readings. I made a b+ on the next test because I studied the powerpoints and only did a few readings. She takes no interests in students, and probably should have retired years ago.

Pros: Posts lecture notes and reserves are easy to access.
Cons: Has an attendance policy, but you really don't have to be in class to do well at all, so it sucks.

Pros: She's pretty straight-forward. Her tests are extremely fair. Everything she says will be on there always is. You know when your quizzes are and exactly what they're over. She gives you the opportunity to come up with your own questions that you would like to see on the upcoming exam.
Cons: She often goes over slides very quickly, so it's extremely easy to miss a point or two.
She's an extremely fair professor and seems pretty sweet. She's always willing to work with you if you have a problem despite the fact that she's super busy.
