22. Other comments:
Very passionate teacher and I learned a lot! I really enjoyed taking this class! :)
I know the schedule was a little off due to unforseen events but it would be better for the teacher to send weekly due dates and a litle of what will happen that upcoming week just like it started in the middle of the semester. Also the weekly schedules should be given, no later than the Friday before the week comes up. IE: If the schedule for next week (9/15) is this and that, that schedule should be up a week in advance to prepare the students. Also, i believe in quality over quantity. I feel it would be more effective to pinpoint and teach certain chosen modules rather than all because some people learn better that way. rather than loading all material in a person's head, its better to give them the important information that you want covered in the semester. I feel that some of the modules were unimportant 'fillers'.
Thank you for taking the responsibility of being our teacher Nadine! You did a fantastic job and I feel as if you completely increased my knowledge of my culture and gave me such a great understanding of it. Continue to keep teaching!
This class was very good, however it just too long. This course should be broken down into twice a week than once a week.
This class culturally taught me a lot of my culture and made me embrace the fact that I am filipino. The only thing that was a struggle was knowing what to expect every week. There was many things to bring the next week and one disadvantage was meeting just once a week so it made it hard. But overall, this was a very fun and enjoyable class!
We never followed the syllabus. Not as organized. I was behind in my work because the syllabus kept changing. Other than that Nadene is a great teacher! Very passionate and has deep knowledge of the subject. I would take a class taught by her again. Very easy to get a hold of.
It was a very eye opening experience. I was also able to bond with my fellow classmates.
Nadine made the class more student-centered, which resulted in all of us getting closer through the course as we continued to spark our knowledge about the philippine culture. Very fun class!
