none.
N/A
None
the presentations.
some of the lectures were boring.
the group project. though i understand why group projects can be helpful, it's hard when people don't do their share.
The written assignments.
Having to write a paper
The fact that a major portion of the final exam grade is based on an book that wasn't mandatory to buy, yet is on the final exam. What's the deal with this? We weren't made aware of the fact until a week before the exam...
The group paper.

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
We can learn more about Japanese Americans by visiting the exhibition and listening to the group presentations.
group presentations
Incorporation of the stories with concepts which made it easier to remember things.
discussions
I liked the oral presentations and the lectures by Dr. Ogawa.
I liked the reviews and how we went over the lecture lessons and how the books were really helpful since they matched with the lectures. It was also very itneresting stories and aspects.
i liked how we each got to tell a story to the class of a time in history, like we were the ones teaching for a day
Having class discussions and not feeling like what we had to say was incorrect or not viable.
The review sessions before the test was helpful
I enjoyed the fact that everyone had to do their own research on each topic, and shared it with the class.
I enjoyed the class discussions.
Individual chapeter projects Midterm review
Going to the JCCH and examining the exhibit and learning more from it.
The history of the Japanese Americans, things you don't learn in U.S. History in High School
The group presentations were very interesting and the chapter outlines helped a lot.
