Professor Rothman managed to present essentially difficult material in a well-organized manner. She provided adequate examples in a sophisticated and innovative approach with respect to her experience. Students, did however, cite work load to be very extensive and difficult to carry at a second year level.

Students felt that far too much reading was required for this course and that, because the readings were so in-depth, they were only able to grasp their content once the professor discussed them in lecture. Professor Rothman was found to be enthusiastic and helpful. She also responded to questions very quickly. However, some felt that she had excessively high expectations and did not provide students with sufficient guidance. Some felt that the course could have been better structured and would have appreciated it had the professor provided more guidelines for pre-lecture preparation (i.e. key terms or events).

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.
