10. What did you like best about the course?
I really like the course contents and the teacher.
The class discussions
I enjoyed that Krissy questioned the intent of the authors of textbooks and encouraged us to think critically and treat the information we learned in practical real world ways rather than as abstract and hypothetical.
The videos presented in class helped clarify course content.
I didnt really much like the course but i did become more aware of culture and the idea that we are currently living in a westernized world and i need to be aware of that.
The videos shown in the class were very interesting and thought provoking. The group discussions were also very helpful.
11. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I have noting to say about it. She is the best teacher I have enver had.
Maybe add a few more videos
I think that during the regular semester this should be taught as a writing intensive course so that we have more room to expand on our reflection papers .
Review slides a little slower to allow those in class who prefer to take notes to do so.
make class more fun and not so boring
Have a strictly enforced time limit on the group discussions in order to ensure that everything that needs to be covered during a class period is covered.
12. I learned to identify main points and central issues in this field.

21. Other comments:
I really enjoyed this class. I am even sad about this class will finish. She is my best teacher!!
I felt Ms. Gleason was passionate about what she was teaching and displayed that through her class lectures. I enjoyed her class.
Very nice course, even though I have only taken PSY 100. I feel like I learned a lot about the field of Cross-Cultural Psychology.
