Many students in this class were concerned and frustrated that the course relied heavily on group discussion without direction rather than on lecture material presented by the instructor. Several noted that in a B-level course students cannot be expected to learn extensively from one another without guidance. Some students, in contrast, felt empowered by the flexible format of the course and noted that Professor Gorman was supportive of their efforts. Many suggested that the reader was over-priced and the required readings too extensive and under-utilized.
