9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
It felt like we covered the same material repeatedly. Often during lectures the instructor would say we are going to go over... and then never did. The pure lecture atmosphere in the class was difficult, I find I do better with classes where class discussion is a regular part of the coursework as opposed to a once in a while thing.
Shes actually a great, wonderful teacher. She makes the class very interresting every single day. Give's good lectures.
The only thing I might add is that maybe more could've been included in the course that has to do with the ancient Greeks and Romans--but that's just a personal interest of mine. Overall, the course was very well structured.
none
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed the instructors enthusiasm and the way the material tied in with the stories that were told.
When she brings in artifacts so we can see, I love reading.
Archaeology has always been an interest of mine, so, naturally, I enjoyed all aspects of the course.
artifacts.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
All though it was a bit chaotic I do feel I came away with new information. I definitely learned from this class. As an aside- through not fault of the instructors own, it was frustrating to not be able to get into the classroom. On several occasions the room was locked and security had to be called to let us in. The instructor only got the keys mid way through the semester. As a result we had to take our final exam outside. The exam was given by another teacher due to the instructors absence.
My overall evalution of this course is that shes aa great techer and she needs to keep doing what shes doing keeping students focused in class all the time giving excellent lectures.
Good course. Interesting lectures. Fun teacher.
great

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Needs no improvement.
Honestly, this is best course I have had, including the other classes I have had with Ms. Six. She is by far, my favorite teacher! You can have no interest in the subject until you meet her! I can only hope to have more classes with her. There's nothing she could do to improve her classes because it is not needed. The only thing i could think of is having her teach more classes and different subjects that also pertain to anthropology and archaeology.
I think it would be interesting to keep this course growing. There are so many areas we only got a taste of. I would love to have more time to explore the ways archaeology is used in everyday jobs, like monitoring.
offer more time slots in the future (not just Saturdays)
maybe bring in some outside people to talk with the class
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The hands-on experience; it truly gives one an idea of what archaeologists actually do in the real world.
One word: EVERYTHING!!! She can make the most boring topic interesting and fun. She is entertaining and insightful. She is very knowledgeable and has a way of transferring that knowledge to you even if you, the student, are not trying.
The course expands your general fund of knowledge. Even just trash on the ground tells me a story. Driving across the Pali, I realize the stratigraphy layers of the moutain bear a presevered history. I feel I have found a direction in education that I did not have before.
The show of respect for cultures past and present, as well as the dedication to making things better for the future.
the filed trips as a class
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I would definitely recommend this course for anyone even remotely interested in the subject.
A+++++++++ I hope she teaches other classes and continues doing the field school. I will continue to take her classes although I no longer need them to fulfill my degree. Hands down- she is the best teacher I have ever had throughout all my schooling. She truly cares about her students, and I have never met anyone who could say anything bad about her. I will also keep telling my friends and other people I meet to take her course. Even if you have no previous interest in the subject, I think most will find an enlightening change of heart. I never wanted to be an archaeologist until I met her and took her classes, and I also never thought I could have made it a career that encompasses so many aspects of life. Thank you Ms. Six!! I will see you again next semester and you're one teacher that I will never forget. <3
Excellent ! Love it!
Great job!
she has help me to become one step closer to my dream
