Reactions to this course were mixed. Most students felt that Professor Rothman attempted to cover far too much material in a short period of time. They also felt she assigned an extensive amount of reading. Further, several students complained that one book on the syllabus was not used at all. Nonetheless, Professor Rothman was deemed to be enthusiastic and helpful though she did not speak very clearly (which made it difficult for students to follow her lectures). Also, some found the key terms and themes she provided to be useful. However, some students noted that because the key terms and themes were only shown at the beginning of class, many students did not have the chance to write them down. Moreover, expectations and evaluations were found to be unclear and students disliked the use of Blackboard for the final essay.

Students thought Professor Rothman was an enthusiastic professor. They also agreed the professor was informative and helpful. One suggestion students have for Professor Rothman is to reconsider if the purchase of two required textbooks were necessary considering most of the readings were online.
