7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Her rebel approach to the subject material.
The daily seminar, and the instructor.
Aspects of the coarse were the heavy, in depth discussions that we engaged in and the books that our teacher picked played a huge part in our learning experience.
I enjoyed learning the fundamentals of briefing court cases and also appreciated the focus on discussion, critical analysis and thinking. The course really taught how to ask tough questions and evaluate each issue specifically and beyond their face value.
Lisa taught this course from a very interesting, engaging and applicable perspective that helped me appreciate the Constitution, realize why understanding it is valuable to me and understand the role it played in shaping American society. Every political science student has to learn about constitutional law but Lisa made me want to learn about it. She made this historical document relative to my life and she offered a critical discourse that helped my classmates and me to genuinely connect with the material.
The structure of the class was excellent. The instructor provided a detailed syllabus that help me to know what to expect from the curse. The readings were great. The instructor is very knowledgeable, and has good teaching skills.
Class discussions. Lisa encourages students to express their own opinions so we are able to hear different sides to each subject. During discussions, she addresses thought-provoking questions that really challenge us to think beyond the obvious and use the concepts we've been learning about. I personally think the way she structured the class allowed for more learning and growth than one would get in a typical lecture setting.
Awesome books and awesome class.... I really loved the discussions and applying law to class room thoughts. I felt that her teaching methods were very good and I would love to take another class from her again.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
None.
It was all valuable in one way or another.
No part of this class was invaluable.
I thought there could have been a little more emphasis on the basics of constitutional law (like terms, important concepts and processes), but overall, Lisa explained anything that came up in the cases effectively.
Lisa made it all valuable :)
