6. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
learning about photographers
understanding of photographic processes of the 19th century.
Lew's ability to incorporate a wide range of side references from the field of art history as examples and context for photographic images presented.
I feel that learning about the early history of photography was very compelling, to see how and where it all started. And how photography revolutionize many things.
The slides
Professor Andrews puts heavy emphasis on specific reoccurring themes to pay attention to, which helps make connections between artworks while studying the material.
dry humor, mostly those UHHH and UMM's. Has anyone ever seriously evaluated this guy. He is about as normal as the guy who leaves his bags outside the art building. evidently all those WI, E, and O's will make me a successful artist. thank you

13. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
recommend some writing assignments
To be honest I think Lew Andrew's teaching style and methods are spot on, nothing needs to be changed.
There's so much to cover, I wish there was a study guide to show focused sections. But I'm sure he wanted us to know everything.
I could never pass a public speaking class in the manner the lecture is given. It is unclear, the Uhh and Umms are uhh ridiculous.

17. Other comments:
Professor Andrews is quite funny and willing to bring in items to promote understanding of mechanical devices used during the time period. He also recommends and uses good texts for this course; I wish the classes were only on two days and about a half hour/ 45 minutes longer
Old fashion blue book essay tests took some getting used to.
He's funny
