Comment: Hull is just the faculty advisor for this class. It is actually taught by a graduate student. (I had Rex). The main focus of the class is on a semester long group project that counts as the fieldwork component of the class. You are responsible for observation, data collection, field notes, a research paper, a presentation, etc. It is very manageable. Another component of the class is the "team teach" when your group project group is responsible for leading an entire (2 hour) class on whatever topic you choose (related to education). This was the most enjoyable part of the class. During the actual discussions of pedagogy, things could get heated and people in my class were very opinionated, which sometimes made me a little uncomfortable. I learned a lot from this class and it was a relatively painless education minor requirement.

Comment: Hull is a very energetic teacher and does earnestly want students to participate. She finds lot of different material/resources for students to indulge themselves in during lecture, but at times, she does stray into a droning lecture type of style. However, she still does a good job of making lecture an educating experience, adding on to the reading and clarifying/summarizing key concepts. No real exam, and assignment is mainly the fieldwork. She is very open to questions from students and is always approachable.

Comment: This was a really amazing class. It's great for Ed Minor students who need to complete field work units as 45 hours of field work are required (so really it's a 4-unit requirement). Attendance was mandatory for class, but the lectures seemed to drag on and the majority of it wasn't as useful (and I aced the class and every assignment). Also to note, Professor Hull did not teach this course - it was all GSIs and the majority of them were first year grad students. I got the one 7th year grad student who was AMAZING and really made the class worth it. There were no tests (final included) but there were 10 field notes (3-8 pages single spaced each), a small group project, and two papers.

Comment: I LOVED this class. By far one of the most thought-provoking and inspiring courses I've taken at Berkeley. If you're even slightly interested in teaching or education, I would highly recommend this class. Lots of reading and lots of writing, but the material was so interesting that it was not difficult. Quite time-consuming, though, with the field work hours (45 for the semester). But so worth it! And Hull is incredible. Try to get John Scott as a GSI if you can - he was one of the best GSIs I've ever worked with.

Comment: I took this class to clear the AC requirement, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to do the same. There's quite a bit of reading per meeting and the hours required to pass, which is a minimum of 45, is a lot. But other than that, Ed140 was a good experience.
