Comment: Interesting class! Came in a bit late and just let everything soak in for me in the summer of 2013. If you are really interested in social sciences and are observant and look at things in a critical way (well you could say how consumerism in the US has flaws or has demeanor with something else) and are obsessed on analysis and historical contextualization, this class will be enjoyable and pretty easy. Loved it as I went on slight philosophical, political, and economic tangents. The GSI was patient enough that I made up a lot of the assignment and homework part by going through portions of the course (like slides, previous assignments) and demonstrating my understanding as well as the big picture of how it fits in! Fun final paper with fun videos to watch! Well worth the time and got a solid A! Take it to relax if you have a similar mindset like mine. It is easy, yet enjoyable and chill.

Comment: Do the reading so that you will get 100% on the easy, but frequent reading quizes. Talk a lot in class and visiting during office hours is a big help to getting a good grade.

Comment: Honestly, the other ratings are just completely unfair or have just been posted for fun. Loutensock taught me a lot about writing, even without intending to do so. She is enthusiastic in class, and tries to promote discussion. She does like reading quizes, and she will tell you wether or not your thesis works. It wasnt as bad as the others here say.

Comment: Seems to consider herself the ultimate writer, continually puts down students ideas until they've become exactly what she believes. Edits drafts reasonably well, but assigns grades that make little to no sense in context. A massive improvement between papers has been known to receive an improvement from a C+ to a B-, where a significant regression on the assignment has been known to receive the exact same grades. A true horror to spend a semester with.
