27. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This class was taught in a new and different way to me, I actually enjoyed it I felt that I learned so much about how fashion has changed over the years and how you can see designs inspired from the past. Jennifer is an awesome teacher! Thank you for being a great professor and good luck with your new job :)
I thought this class was very interesting because we did not take notes on lectures or use a textbook. However, I really liked this because we only got some background information from the different eras, but we were able to do our own research and share our findings with the class. I think this would be a very good idea for other small classes like ours in the future.
Nice topic for eatch week classes.
This course is great! Beamer is an awesome teacher and she makes learning fun and interesting. I wish there were more teachers like her! She is so kind and her class was very interesting!
too relaxed,grade school level
awesome :)
I loved how she taught the course this semester. I was highly interested in all the lectures!
Overall, I think this class was good, I just wish I was able to retain all the knowledge that I learned throughout the semester.
This is a great class. Though others might not agree, I really liked the fact that we had to present our work to the class every week. Presenting is a vital skill in the fashion industry and also, because we knew we were presenting, it was a greater incentive to actually complete the weekly assignments well.
I enjoyed this course. I like her unorthodox method of teaching. Granted she does give lectures. In addition to that, we would have a weekly project in which we would have to give an oral presentation about gave me more confidence to speak publicly. I learned a lot about the subject matter because we would have to answer questions that allowed critical thinking. We would also have to collaborate with other classmates in groups in which we would have to check to see if our format suited our presentation. It was interesting to see what other classmates had to say about each topic as they would provide information in a different area of interest.
different and interesting. I have never had a class run like this and it was a pleasant change. I really enjoyed the layout.

Mrs. Beamer rocks
Thanks Mrs. Beamer!!
Definitely teach the class in this style for upcoming semesters. I retained a lot more information this way and it was easy to go back and read what other groups wrote. Really awesome class! I think you should teach more fashion classes!

8. What did you like best about the course?
I really liked the way she organized and presented the power points and included a movie as an example afterwards.
I liked how Beamer made the course content interesting with pictures and movies and she was always engaging students with questions. She made the classroom a good atmosphere by always being helpful and giving us research tips.
seeing the evolution of dress and how it reflects the ideals of the time
Learned lots of interesting material that will benefit me in the future. Class was enjoyable and assignments were not difficult and helped me develop a deeper understanding in fashion history. Professor Beamer was also a very generous and understanding instructor who does her best to answer all questions quickly and goes out of her way to help students. She cares about the students and always makes sure we have ample time to do assignments/projects so that we can excel in class
I enjoyed the projects. The individual one gave us the opportunity to challenge ourselves with the information we've learned in the course, and the group project allowed us to work with classmates and collaborate which was also fun.

19. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Having a better understanding of costumes in movies and how important of a job the costume designers have.
Seeing certain classic movies such as Cleopatra or Clueless and focusing on their clothing and how well it portrays the actual time period.
the word zeitgeist will remind me of this course
The fashion timeline project. Although some said it was difficult, I enjoyed the challenge and learning about the country's fashion history
Having had to study an individual culture's history and its dress also the influence and assimilation of western fashions or vise versa.
The trends I see coming back into fashion. I'll know where certain fashion style came from and the history behind them.

32. What changes would you make in the lectures?
More pictures
Lectures were informative but the power points could sometimes be a bit of a drag. Maybe if more interaction or hands-on activity were added, class could be more fun (like the time we made togas from bedsheets)
I like that the lectures were interactive so I believe you should continue to do that.
33. What changes would you make in the readings?
nothing
34. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I really enjoyed this course and learned more than I thought I would.
The course was interesting and it was fun to see how fashion has changed over time. I learned a lot and realize the importance of learning about how fashion has changed throughout history.
I really enjoyed this class and professor Beamer was an awesome professor!
I enjoyed the course. I learned a lot about fashion history, which really is important especially as a FDM major.

I absolutely loved this class and would not change anything about it! I learned a lot and grading was very fair. Jennifer Beamer was awesome and had the best attitude.
Prof Beamer's teaching style is very effective. I enjoyed her power points and watching movies related to the time period that we focused on for costume and clothing. Visual representations are very helpful in understanding the fashion of different time periods.

Again, I would not change anything! I loved all the assignments and learned a lot during this class. I also loved that we were able to take the quizlets in class with our electronics.
Great course. Clear, easy to understand, organized instruction.
Great teacher and great course! Maybe more mini quizzes?
This course was very fun and educational. I enjoyed learning about the fashion of different time periods. The textbook is also a good media for information of the times and examples of dress.
Professor Beamer is kind and thoughtful, very personable and easy to get along with. She is knowledgable and I enjoyed being part of her course this semester.
good course. very interesting material
Relates course to things that are relevant to today's world which makes it easier to learn.
Awesome class
