Most students in this course responded quite well to Professor Boughn's knowledge in this area, and rightly inferred that this has become a bit of a signature course for him. Some felt that his prepared notes were an advantage and a sign of organization while others felt the lectures felt too scripted at times. A number of students referenced the size of the class as a problem and suggested either smaller classes or else tutorial sections, but also allowed that Professor Boughn made the best of it and even tried to engage in class dialogue. Many noted that a lot of class time was devoted to the historical context literature without any indication if this would be tested (apparently not) but many also suggested this was among the most interesting content. A couple students noted this course is especially interesting to anyone intending to teach elementary school or work with children.

Some students felt that the late scheduling of the course and the length of the lectures (7-10pm) were a detriment. Others noted that there was a great deal of reading covered, and went on to emphasize that this is 'not a bird course.'

Professor Crimmins was an enthusiastic lecturer, and his classes were well-organized and easy to follow. There was a fair amount of reading in this class, which does not cover contemporary authors. There was little feedback given back to students about their term essays.
