Evaluation Comments for Cason, J

  1. No Comment
  2. This course is extremely broad but it does give you an overview of many of the themes that influence international events. Sometimes, it can be frustrating to talk about Latin American development and then switch the African environmental policy, but I think the class is valuable overall. The workload is not crushing, there are readings for each lecture but you do not need them to participate in class since its a massive lecture hall. However, to contribute to discussion sections you will need to catch up. Next, there are four short response papers, a midterm (which was an in class essay) and a final research paper that is 10-12 pages. While I liked hearing from guest lecturers every week, others felt disconnected from the material. While I cannot say much for Sasson, Cason grades fairly and leaves generally useful comments. HIs discussion sections can meander a bit though when he begins discussing his most recent trip abroad. These trips are frequent and cause him to miss some classes.
