14. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Have a new location, sometimes the classroom was too cold and it made it very difficult to focus >.<
I think we should be required to write a reflection about the assigned reading material at the beginning of each class. Just a short paragraph in order to make sure the students read. This would also provoke more discussion in class.
This course could be improved by having larger group discussions. It could also be improved by having a more hands-on project in addition to the current volunteer participation like creating a fake non-profit.
15. Other comments:
Great class and great teacher! I really enjoyed the field trips and the amount of speakers that came to talk to us. All the extra stuff Jennifer did for our class definitely expanded on the concepts we learned. Very pleased and very excited to make volunteering a regular part of my schedule.
I really enjoyed this class and learned more than i expected from it
