Evaluation Comments for Schwartz P

  1. Very easy class. Readings are terribly boring. Films are okay. I stopped doing the reading halfway through the course and still did well. Most students brought laptops to lecture to avoid falling asleep.
  2. This was a truly mind-numbing course, and it really didn't need to be. An upper level course should be far more interesting, but this one was absolute torture. Prof. Schwartz seems like a nice lady, but her French is pretty awful. She has a very strong American accent, which is hard to get used to, and doesn't help your spoken French get any better. Make sure you look over your corrections carefully on papers you write, because she makes lots of mistakes, and will mark words as being incorrect if she doesn't know what they mean, even if they appear in any French dictionary. Also, be forwarned that it takes her at least a month to grade anything, something she blames on her allergy medicine. Nice lady, bad professor.
