13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He would explain some points in the books that were confusing or hard to understand.
He related the theories and things we discussed to current events
He is very knowledgeable about the topic and always available to help us to better understand the topics he taught.
That he likes the subject matter
He is very intelligent and wants his students to do well in his class.
The course work and extra credit. He allows room for error, only if the student can provide the work to correct the wrong answers, which is a good method for learning.
Knew the material very well, I liked that he answered questions people put on the back of their quizzes, the simulation was helpful in understanding and implementing the theories we learned.
His knowledge about the subject
Allowed the students to correct quizzes
He was understanding and tried to pick are brains about certain subjects to think outside the box.
Consistent improvements of course grades.
If you make a mistake you are able to learn about your mistake, yet if you explain to him on how you learned from your mistake then the point is given back
His lectures are awesome!
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Time allocation
Working on the simulation was pointless because most people weren't even there to attend class making it 2-3 people per country, sometimes not even representing a country.
He sometimes goes off on a tangent and gets off topic
Concept were difficult for me to understand. He gives too long of lectures.
Not to be offensive, but he is aging. His grasp with engaging the students and presenting it in a way that makes the students want to work is low. He does give content and sources which are very useful toward understanding the content, but the lectures feel droning. Also while he uploads revisions to the syllabus, he does not debrief his TAs so they barely know what to do, and he does not give clear enough instructions in a timely fashion.
His teaching style of straight forward lecturing is not exactly engaging/
everything was valuable
Sometimes he would make it difficult to grasp what he was lecturing about because it was very dense material especially for it being my first and only politics class.
Doesn't communicate well.
the least valuable aspect thing about Chadwick would be that he talks and gives so much information that sometimes he loses the crowd. Knows an abundant amount of information about the subject manner.

19. Other comments:
Dr.Chadwick is very knowledgeable and i enjoyed his class.
While I appreciate his lectures, there were times during our simulations when I would have wanted more time to negotiate. Many times our negotiations were about to bear fruit when we would be cut off. I feel that better management of time would allow students to go deeper into what goes into negotiating with other countries. I also felt that the simulations were the only time students were actually wanting to be active and participate in discussions. More learning was done in these group activities than through lectures.
See above.
Needs to explain the parameters of the simulation prior to beginning simulation
great, fun course!
Very dense material and could be hard to grasp all the knowledge of the course if it's not your major or haven't taken any politic classes in the past.
Getting old.
Good teacher enjoyed his class and learning from my mistakes
I loved the simulation project but next time make more groups.

Statistics and politics
I took this course because it's requirement for my major.
It fulfilled my political science pols390 requirement.
The reason to why I have chosen to attend this class is due to the requirements needed for a political science degree.
This course was required for my major.
Requirement for POLS major and fit into my schedule
Political science minor
Major
This was a required course for POLS 390, and it interested me as to how Political Scientists derive conclusions from the models they create regarding questions pertaining to political questions.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Everything
I find Richard Chadwick valuable with the way he teaches. He's very helpful with helping the students with research papers.
The correlation between political research and research models.
What I found valuable is that Prof. Chadwick always wanted to make sure that the class understood the material. He was able to help each student individually to construct their research design. He was also able to mention other political theorist and recommended several books.
What I found most helpful about Mr. Chadwick was that he knew how to simplify the more complex, mathematical applications, into a more understandable form.
His love for teaching and having the students do well on test and quizzes
Always challenges me to think deeply and has a lot of thought provoking lectures
Student oriented
He has a massive wealth of knowledge regarding a lot of political issues and keeps very up to date regarding current events.
Chadwick has a wealth of knowledge and experience, unfortunately this wasn't always communicated efficiently. The ability to make up tests and quizzes was helpful and demonstrated the importance of understanding concepts instead of taking tests well.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
None
What I found least valuable about the course is not having a detailed outline of the semester schedule on the course syllabus.
While some subject matter seemed to be discussed in more than one class session, it was still necessary.
What I feel that Mr. Chadwick could have improved on throughout the course was have homework assignments for the final essay throughout the semester to have the class practice the analysis techniques in their own essays. This would allow the class to form a more general structure according to the class materials in the essay and make it easier for the students to ask Mr. Chadwick for help in modifying them.
Not having a course outline
N/A
None
Slightly disorganized.
Almost everybody in the class did not know what was expected of them and did not understand the class. Many found office hours unhelpful and information unclear. The syllabus did not go past the first week. For students who plan on actually doing political inquiry and analysis, do not take this class. It will not help you.

I took this course because I was planning to major in international relations and needed a brief introduction to it.
Relates to international economics... But not really.
I chose to take this course because it fulfilled one of my major requirements.
It fufilled a requirement.
Just because I've never taken a political science course before and this course did not require any pre-requisites.
Political Science Major requirement
I was just interested in international relations although my major and minor is not related to pols. I thought this class would be good for me to learn general ideas of international relations and i learnt even details, too.
This was one of the accepted electives to fulfill my curriculum for International Business.
Major requirement
I am majoring in Political Science and interested in IR. i like this class since the it is short so that i can concentrate on the lecture better.
It's an upper elective that ties into my business major
POLS requirements and interest in the topic

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He is a funny guy that knows his stuff! I liked that he was flexible with taking quizzes late especially since there were quizzes every week. At first I was a little scared about having a quiz every week, but I actually liked it because I was being tested about the materials from that week so the material was still fresh in my head.
he was helpful and loved to answer questions
N/A
Professor Chadwick is very knowledgeable, and seems to really love teaching. If you have any questions concerning an assignment, or need anything clarified he is always willing to help you out.
lots of knowledge
He is very passionate about the subject and had many examples
What I found most valuable and helpful about Chadwick is how he try his best to teach the class in a certain way for us to understand and learn from it and also makes us write questions that we want to ask about a anything that we have discuss in class.
Chadwick was really knowledgeable about the subject matter and always appreciated questions.
The amount of knowledge he possesses.
He was very knowledgeable in the subject matter
He is a very knowledgable expert. He is willing to explain and answer questions.
He really cares about his students.
Professor Chadwick made it sure to clear the air of any questions by providing a section of the class to answer proposed questions on the previous quiz. Professor Chadwick also provided great insight by asking a question, stating a historic counterexample, then relating it to contemporary politics.
He can explain IR theories in very clearly with examples. I really liked how he used the book, "Why nations go wars" to give us authentic examples of how IR theories were or were not applied.
The questions that we were able to ask on the back of our quizzes --- I found it valuable that he took the time to answer them during a class period and go over parts of the lecture that people found to be confusing or needed extra clarification.
The simulation was really helpful. I could think beyond the domestic level of politics and consider some foreign policies in realistic ways.
He's super knowledgeable on the subject
His great knowledge of the topics.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
it was hard to listen to lecture with our more visuals
The continual talking and referencing to questions that people only put on their quizzes to earn an extra point. The also reference of material that was way above the heads of most of the students.
N/A
no powerpoints
Sometimes I don't feel my questions get fully answered.
Nothing
Sometimes he would go on and on about a particular question and seems to be too fixated on lecturing endlessly.
Lecture style schedule can be very boring.
His tangents.
He was very scattered. I found lectures to be confusing and often times I left class wondering what I learned. The texts that he chose for the course were excellent. I learned mostly from the text.
Nothing. He's awesome.
He answered questions for a long time during class that were often irrelevant to the subject matter.
Often times, Professor Chadwick would leave 10-15 minutes left of the class period to complete an exam. It was a difficult thing to accomplish with a substantial amount of time to critically think and answer to the best of my ability.
There were a lot of tangents but in the long run it helped broaden my knowledge, even if it wasn't exactly related to the chapters we were discussing at the moment.
writing questions made the course little bit confusing. so many off-topics. some were related to the lecture and some were not.
No attendance makes it so that you don't want to go to class

Great class! Thanks!

Iʻve taken Prof Chadwick before and really enjoyed his class
Currently I'm very much interested in pursuing a Masters degree in Political Science with a focus on International Relations between the United States and Southeast Asia.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Dick Chadwick is a genius!!! Upon entering any classroom with any amount of students from 3-20 you have an instant "political think-tank" because of this man. His forum is immense,insightful, and thought-provoking! He keeps at pace with current political news and events daily or maybe up to the hour. He is a "jewel" in the U.H. system and lacks due recognition and campus-wide notoriety. I firmly believe Chadwick is the top-man compared to political scientists in Yale, Harvard, Oxford, or any other reputable political science schools on God's green planet. Any high-level government politician should ALWAYS have highly secured consultation lunch with Chadwick before speaking or doing anything else around town,i.e., Gore, Obama.
He allowed us to ask any questions we wanted.
He genuinely cares and has a simple and unique approach to untangling complicated concepts. He is open to helping students with their problems and is very approachable.
He knows his subject very well and he is very passionate about it. This passion and knowledge was pass on to his students.
his years of experience, approachability, and relaxed teaching style
Prof. Chadwick challenged me intellectually by providing different interpretations of political theories in situations and examples that were very engaging. He also made sure to answer any questions or concerns we had and addressed them thoroughly. It was very reassuring to have a professor that was willing to discuss and explain theories in very interesting ways.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Nothing!, if you or anyone else knows tell me ?
He didn't give feedback on all papers.
Student participation felt very forced, and when Professor Chadwick tried to encourage more students to speak up, he often overrode them before they had a chance to utter their thoughts. His research approaches/advice feel very narrow, inflexible, and sometimes dated. The course materials felt very flat and uninspiring.
he never brought food to class for his students :/ *tear
N/A Prof. Chadwick was very helpful and is a valuable professor to have.

Courses in academia in this day and age don't get any better than Chadwick's brand. In all these decades Chadwick has not lost a step, he only gets better and valuable as time goes on. Other old-timers in the department as well as new professors cannot even get close to "tying the laces" of Chadwick's shoes. He is the BEST there ever will be! TOP-MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How the course materials tied together to produce an overarching theme felt very puzzling and confused. I did appreciate Professor Chadwick's flexibility when it came to papers.
I would strongly recommend this course to other students who want to pursue a Masters in Political Science as an introduction to the Political Science department. I also want to thank Prof. Chadwick for being very patient with a student who does not have a strong political science background but has a very strong interest in international relations (me).

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The lectures and quizzes were most valuable and helpful.
He knows the material really well.
It is really hard to rate professor Chadwick, his experience and his knowledge goes beyond anything any student can ask for. So much, that his lectures and quizzes sometimes do not meet up. Although personally I don't see a problem, trying to make a quiz based off what he has to say seems almost impossible.
He forms the class to help students get a good grade and allows them to slip up to a certain extent while offering chances to get ahead
He is incredibly experienced in the subject. His expertise is something that I feel really lucky to be able to take advantage of. He encourages students to learn their own views and perspectives.
He was very knowledgable.
Professor Chadwick is very smart and professional.
his deep expierence and knowledge of subject matter
His character. His enthusiasm. His authority on the subject.
He brought the experience of a long career to the course. His understanding of the material was a great help, he was able to explain complex ideas in simple ways and through his experiences.
Funny, knowledgeable, and excited about the material.
He really wants you to succeed, the course material can be challenging but his teaching style sparks an interest in the subject.
Professor Chadwick has effective teaching methods that get the students involved and give them a hands on, social experience which allows students as close as they can get to a first hand experience. Great teacher. Very knowledgeable.
Richard Chadwick was incredibly well-informed and was able to easily convey complex ideas about international relations in way that makes it understandable to those with little to no background in the subject. He encouraged students to think critically about the material and was more focused on providing a quality education rather than having students compete for a certain grade point average.
I enjoyed the text "Why nations go to war" and the quizzes every week enabled me to try and keep up with the course work and schedule.
Helped to foster a well-rounded understanding of the subject matter.
Knew the course material very well.
He was a smart guy
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
N/A
He is very hard to approach and is unorganized. When we would ask him for written explanations of what he wanted for papers and things like that, he would get really upset with us and tell us to listen in class. It was hard to ask him for help.
Quizzes, maybe this should be turned into a written based class. Quizzes are just to hard in this class. Especially because many of the theories and ideas are very abstract.
He was a little brash in class sometimes, but it was not a major issue
I would have liked to gain a better grasp on global politics but I think that might be something that I need to practice more rather than just learning it for one semester.
He was very vague. When I asked my classmates if they knew what was going on, they were as confused as I was.
He was just perfect professor.
n/a
N/A
sometimes questions were not answered clearly.
Flexible, approachable, and practical. Funny and gets excited about every aspect of the course. He enjoys teaching the course.
His personality can be a little abrasive at times.
Nothing comes to mind.
Snappy attiutude. And lecture would tend to drag on without making much process
He's pretty old and is hard of hearing. He has a short fuse and a quick temper

21. Other comments:
The simulation was a great experience and should definitely remain part of the course. I liked the way it was run as well.
Thank you Professor Chadwick
He is very professional and has a superior knowledge on politics.
Ty
the only complaint I have is the short class time. classes were too short (50min) to get really deep into the material. Some of the material warranted long classes to grasp. A twice a week meeting time would be better or a once a week meet up would be better still.
Awesome teacher!
Question number twenty is pointless and shouldn't be in this survey.
Excellent course. Would recommend it to my peers.
Especially liked the Simulation. However, the simulation needed more guidance and rules.

I took this class as an elective.
It sounded interesting and as someone interest in running for political office someday I wanted leadership skills
I chose this course as a part of my required course requirements.
Pols Major.
POLS elective requirement
It seemed interesting.
It filled my electives requirements for my political science major. It seemed like an interesting subject.
I wanted a focus on political leadership. I wanted to learn more in depth about political leaders within our society and history.
To gain leadership skills
Believed the knowledge would benefit my personal goals.
I choose this course because i needed for my electives.
I am very interested in learning about leadership because I would like a career in politics. I signed up for this class purely out of interest. Not out of need.
I wanted to take more courses within my major.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I found that Professor Chadwick was very knowledgeable on the course content. He is very helpful to the students and is always available to talk to. He gives numerous ways of succeeding in class. Professor Chadwick really breaks down the course material in a way that students can grasp the concepts.
This professor was very knowledgeful and
His life experiences that could be related to the course subject matter. Professor Chadwick has offered real life experience to us as students to show us how adaptive leadership can be used and to better explain the materials in the course we were learning.
His immense knowledge and experience. I personally love Chadwick's style of lecture, especially this semester. The circle style class discussions really allow for intellectual dialogues and forces students to engage.
He knew the material and he wanted everyone's opinion about the topic discussed. Even if it is in writing or said in class.
He likes to talk after class about the course content.
He gave a solid explanation for any question that I might of had about the subject at hand.
He had a good understanding and many sources to refer to. He also allows us to make up our quizzes which shows that he intends for us to learn something rather than memorizing it for a grade.
Lectures and reading were really helpful
Allowing us to write down questions after the quiz which he addressed the following class.
The thing that I found most valuable and helpful about Richard Chadwick is the way he teaches the class.
He seems to know a lot about his subject and current events.
He has a lot of experience and uses great references to back up his lectures. he is also willing to share those references freely with the students.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I have taken a couple other classes with Professor Chadwick and notice that he likes to use books on theory (i.e. Viotti and Kaupi and Heifetz). Although these books are good for their subject matters, they are often times not related to the real world, they are just theory. I suggest that he takes those various model and theories and show how they apply to today's society.
The Book 13 bankers
Nothing
none
I feel like I am the only person in the class that can interpret his Chadwickian phraseology. I understand his points but conflicts arise in class discussions that, from my view, happen due to a lack of mutual understanding. Many times, Dr. Chadwick and a student are trying to say the same thing, but they don't understand each other.
He sometimes asked us to read before answering a question i may have had.
Talk a little too much at time. But it wasn't a big problem.
Students were not asked to apply the models. We would have a better understanding if there was more discussion on the models rather then lecture.
None
I wish he would have used power points. I am a visual learner, and taking 18 credits this semester. It is difficult for me to recall all of the readings constantly because I need to refer to a memory of an image. PowerPoint would have helped with my success in this class. As well as, better understand course content.
I am not sure how to answer this question. Please consider revising it.

Great teacher, his methods just need minor tweaks and adjustments.
The book 13 banks made me feel like I was in a economic class not a political leadership class
No matter what any of your colleagues say, keep teaching! I will always stand up for this mans integrity and effectiveness as a teacher.
This was one of those courses where I feel like I'm not learning anything about being a better leader; but I see myself being better at leading. it is easy to give up on the class and not pay attention, but it is worth it to go to class and participate.
he could be more engaging with students
class had good people in it
Circle discussion would have been useful earlier on in the course. Having quizzes on Wednesdays might motivate the students to do the readings before class discussion; by having quizzes on Fridays students are more likely to put off the reading until Wednesday and Thursday.
I feel very strongly about having PowerPoint. I feel the class would have benefitted from it. Overall, Professor Chadwick is a really nice professor, caring professor. He gives us opportunities to make up quizzes if we missed them, and allows us to correct mistakes.
I wish we read the adaptive leadership book first and then moved on to the other books. It wold have been fun to analyse the other books with the adaptive leadership book freshly in my knowledge.

5. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really benefited from the option to make corrections to the quizzes
Dr. Chadwick possesses a tremendous amount of knowledge about the material he covers in this course, and was able to answer any questions that students had regarding his lectures. Honestly Dr. Chadwick has one of the better class structures that I've experienced here at UH.
The readings and weekly quizes really challenged me
class discussions
Professor Chadwick is a wealth of information, as are many students as he has pointed out, and being able to listen to his perspective, take and understanding of various theories, concepts, and events is eye opening and inspiring.
He explained many of the important terms we needed clearly and gave us a summary before hand.
Professor Chadwick was very passionate and allowed students to do written work to make up points missed on quizzes. This was great because it both helped the students to learn the material and improve their grade which decreased the amount of stress that the students felt.
I really liked the book Why Nations go to War. It was very informative and a new perspective
The lectures was most valuable and the group discussions. His lectures were understandable and great to listen to. The group discussions were based on his lecture and/or a question he gave out for the students to ponder on and discuss about. In addition, he allowed us the opportunity to recommend suggestions to what could better the class discussions and/or his lectures.
Learning about future issues that are rising up was valuable.
The way he quizes, it based of actual knowledge
3x3 Global Drills
I enjoyed both required books for this course and thought that in-class discussions and lectures were very insightful.
I liked Professor Chadwick's style of lecture. He always related what we were reading to the course and could easily explain the relevence of the texts we would read.
6. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Doing the 3x3 drill during the second half of the semester didn't do anything to enhance my learning
Although interesting...I did not feel incredibly stimulated from the mock exercise. At times I felt extremely confused on what was going on...but overall the exercise was interesting and got me to think of politics in a completely different light...so my suggestion would be to have clearer directions for how the exercise should be conducted...maybe make a recording of a previous class and then show that recording to future classes to show how the exercise is conducted.
the 3x3 drill
I know the class ended up spending a lot of time on it, and no offense to Martin, however the 3x3 group activity felt lacking. I understand the focus and purpose of the simulation but besides a couple of the simulations the 3x3 activity was not engaging and became monotonous. This could have been because over half of the groups had the same topic. The 3x3 activity also seemed to drag on quite a bit and I felt it was cutting in to hearing what Prof. Chadwick had to offer us through lecture. The smaller group discussions we had early on, with Q and A right afterward felt more fruitful. Don't get me wrong, I do believe thinking long term, global problem and solution drills are good but as a class I didn't think we got very far in truly thinking and working together to come up with possible solutions. Sadly I do not hav a better idea of how to do this.
N/A
Martin Schwab's 3x3 global drills was somewhat poorly planned and not explained thoroughly so students had to guess at what they were doing throughout that portion of the course
The 3X3 drills need to be organized better. I think it would work better if you did a session where the groups could talk to their team members before they get up and present to the class.
NONE

I thought the 3x3 Global Drill was very invaluable and served little to no purpose as it pertains to this course.

thanks for a great semester!
This is a great course and it really makes you think and wonder what we are doing, why are we doing it, and so on.
N/A
I would have enjoyed this course a lot more if it focused only on Professor Chadwick's lectures and course material. The 3x3 global drills took away from his material and made students less passionate about the class.
I liked his style of teaching
I think more of the 3x3 global drills should take place! However, maybe instead of focusing the drills on what the paper was on, present a question/hot topic to each group for a global impromptu debate... Pass out a paper to the class containing 3 possible topics of choice, allow each group to decide what their topic is out of the 3 (don't allow more than two groups to cover one topic), and have them research actual policies/laws regarding those topics, as well as problems/solutions. Something like that, that involves not just solutions to global problems, but specific ways in which the policies and laws regarding those issues can be created/adjusted/abolished/etc... Overall, awesome course!

EVERYTHING! He is incredibly smart, it blew me away. Great professor, great instructor, good with letting you make up tests but making those quiz's hard keeps you on your toes and studying! Goes off on rants (which I love) and brings in knowledge from textbooks, his own experiences and current events. I haven't yet figured out his political affiliation, but I have a feeling I rather not no.

the class is much boring because of the lectures....it has to come up with some class activities base on the lectures or the readings of the weeks
Should have picked a better book for the International Relations Theory.
Would have been even greater if the class involved "model UN" where students can debate issues of great importance as they step into the shoes of a particular country's ambassador. Also, lectures tend to go off on a tangent and need to focus specifically on the dynamics of these international relations, as well as the empirical data.

His style of teaching is very different and really entertaining.

Both texts were great. Professor Chadwick is vary knowledgeable about the subject.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Nothing.
I wish there was a bit more interaction with the class, but I understand it is hard to allow 6 TI's to participate all the time in the course of the semester.
Professor Chadwick dislikes criticism which means that when he makes claims that are wrong (like: the french revolution took place in 1789 not 1815 like he said in class) I don't feel like i can correct him without him getting defensive and angry.

Chadwick welcomes true discussions, rather than demanding agreement with him or the texts. Questions and criticisms of the material are met with thoughtful, generous responses. Students are treated equally, and with respect.

The free style enabled discussion and critical thinking. The books and materials provided were very appropriate and very deep in content. The professor was very insightful.

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The text, groupwork
When we had the debate on a simulation held in class about Foreign Aid Policy around the world.
The environment the instructor offered was conducive to learning yet laid back in a good way. The text offered in the course was very easy to read yet extremely comprehensive. Chadwick is a career educator who provides a very welcoming environment and lectures in a colloquial way that is "grandfatherly" like but it seems to be suited for a subject like American Foreign policy. Flexibility in assignments and a very free and open discourse was appreciated. Chadwick knows his subject matter very well and is a great asset to this institution.
reading a chapter a week and discussing it and hearing lecture on it was very valuable and effective because it was a good amount of reading yet not extremely demanding so everyone was able to do it. it was just right in workload, with journals readings and quizzes, challenging but not exhausting
Profesor Chadwick is very knowledgeable of 20th Century American foreign policy. I like how he expounded on major events.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Lectures were a little hard to follow.
None
Quizzes and exams were rather simple but the weekly exams serve their purpose in helping students focus on the main points. Lectures can get off topic at times but usually provide some insight into foreign policy and politics.

I have taken three classes with this professor and it just doesn't make me feel weak to attend his lectures because he is an excellent instructor and very smart. Using all his knowlege in grasping the students to understand the concept of the materials and whatever it is presented in the course materials. With this i have strongly recommended Dr. Chadwick to be an excellent instructor.
Supplementing the textbook with some other reading material would be nice. The quizzes and exams could also be made to be a little more challenging. It would be nice to get some feedback on the weekly writing assignments or assign topics for the weekly writing assignment so that they may be used for a point for discussion in future classes.

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Got me out of my comfort zone, gave me tools for future development.
Books
the book discussions
The interactions with student was very good because it kept the students awake and focused.
The four required books. These books were wonderful application to not just class but life. I will keep these books for the rest of my life. Also i found a weekly write up to be effective. It keeps us (students) engaged to the course, week by week. It also calls for a moment of reflection, i feel too many times, the message just goes in one ear and out the other. With the requirement of a write up, your forced to sit down and contemplate the message, really soak up relevance and importance.
The content when presented in charts and graphs and on board were well presented.
I really thought that the book discussions were most valuable. It helped me understand the material and relate it to current issues. I also liked the group project at the end, it really gave a different perspective to the class and let us simulate real political topics.
I like the readings the most. There was three books that were required readings but they were very interesting to read.
EVERY SINGLE CLASS IS VALUABLE.
The small group sessions & the lectures.
Simulation activity and Lectures
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
At times unorganized, unstructured.
discussions with the group
None.
Your lectures that merely paraphrased the assigned readings. I felt that at the beginning of the semester you talked about things outside of the parameter of the books we were reading. However that could be because you set the foundation for the rest of the course, with topics of Stephen Covey, and Maslow, and ruler of China. Though, as the semester progressed, I felt most of the lectures talked about the readings, that most of us, read the night before. I enjoyed when you talked about other issues and make relevance to the readings and/or life in general, i.e. stress bucket.
Class was very disorganized, content very hard to grasp without being a specialist in the field.
I didn't think that any part of the course was not valuable.
Group activities. Most students were opinionated to the point that they overpowered those that were quite. It didnt feel like a true legislative session.
NONE THAT I CAN THINK OFF.
The lack of a solid & firm schedule. It seemed to change and it was hard to keep track of what was needed to be done for each week.

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Professor Chadwick's 40 plus years of thinking about the theory, data and culture and corresponding science, praxis and philosophy of American foreign policy.
All aspects were valuable.
The readings were outstanding. Class discussions were interesting and enjoyable. Professor Chadwick is incredibly knowledgeable, genuinely cares about his students, and clearly enjoys teaching.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Some lectures and presentations were clearer to understand than others. As with all classes in this department and perhaps in all academe, more deliberation among an international student body, especially in a seminar setting guided by the expert, the professor might benefit all involved exponentially. Of course, international students have a responsibility to contribute more substantively and imaginatively to the discussions that do take place rather than the usual manner of deferring to or passively resisting their U.S. counterparts.
