Professor Brahim is an overall great teacher, this class definitely widens your perspective on racial and ethnic groups. You would leave class with your head pulsating a little bit, but it's just from all the information and concepts you've just actually learned. I loved every minute of it! :)
The most useful part of this course is the fact that I've learned and been made more aware of concepts having to do with the society I live in and experience everyday. Now that I'm aware of them, I can think more critically about them and relate them to the other concepts I've learned both in this course and before I took this class. I've always loved learning, but until now I've felt that my thought processes have always been slightly different than everyone else's I know, that I think about things in such an interconnected, underlying way that no one else really got it when I tried to explain things more linearly; at least, not until they've been challenged to weave together concepts and go beyond the text's definition of what things are. It's gotten me farther in my ability to connect to my classmates and consider them "peers."
I recommend students to take this class because this class opened up my mind about how society is today. I really enjoyed every part of it.
Group discussions were very helpful in thinking more critically about the texts. Professor Aoude was approachable, open to questions and discussion, and very knowledgeable about the field of ethnic studies.
Professor Ibrahim not only presented the material effectively, he also made us question topics we never would have thought about. I am also happy for taking this course since it pushed my interest in taking Middle East Studies with my favorite teacher. I would highly recommend taking a course with Professor Ibrahim if you are interested seeking the truth and resisting conformity.
I enjoyed this course very much. I wondered at some point whether or not to make this my major. Mr. Ibrahim Aoude did a very good job and his teaching methods were good.
Instructor is very helpful and can listen to any questions or concerns regarding the subject itself. He will be very proud to help any one of you whenever you needed one. Additionally, he was lenient work-wise.

Professor Aoude is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Ibrahim is an excellent professor. I had a rough start to the semester with a major illness and he went out of his way to keep me updated and in the loop of class activities so I didn't get too far behind. With his help I was able to catch back up to the rest of the class. Going into this class I knew NOTHING about the middle east besides what I see on the news. It was a big eye opener and broadened my view of the middle east. He was also very funny and made his class more interesting than I anticipated.
Loved this class! Learned a substantial amount and was able to draw more connections between things occurring in the Middle East and the factors that led to the changes. Bravo!
I took this class without much expectation, however I learned more than I would have ever assumed. It broadened my view on politics in the Middle East and I learned that one should considered the actions of countries like the US on lesser developed countries especially those in the Middle East.
The instructor is very productive with student concerns, and he addresses all topics clearly.
Great class and great professor. As a political Science major who recently added Ethnic Studies as a second major, Ibrahim has been great not only as a professor, but also has an advisor helping me navigate through the new requirements of the ES department. I highly recommend Ibrahim to anyone and everyone interested in the Middle East or Ethnic Studies.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Dr. Aoude is an excellent professor. He is entertaining, knowledgeable, and always available if you want to discuss an assignment. He is very generous with students in the sense that he gives a lot of opportunity to do well in his class. His person connections to the subject matter he teaches do not interfere with the balance of this class. He gives a contrapuntal analysis of all subjects, and I really appreciate that.
Professor Aoude is very enthusiastic about the course and encourages students to ask questions and explore new topics.
Excellent professor.
Very easy to talk to and meet with. Classroom always engaging. If we didn't know the answers or did not understand a point correctly, he explained it again with other examples and did not make us feel bad for not grasping ideas 100%. Also, he was very open to free speech and opposing opinions.
A very knowledgeable and helpful instructor!
He is a great teacher. I learned so much. The topic is so timely. Everything about the course was great. I had to stretch and the course is not easy but I had a great time. I will always remember what I learned. The Professor has so much knowledge. He doesn't tell you what to think. He lets you come to your own conclusions. I am so happy I took this course.
He is a very passionate professor who feels strongly in a student having an interest in what they are learning.
I am grateful to have gotten to know Ibrahim and absorb some of his extensive knowledge on the pressing subject of the Middle East. He is the type of intellectual who is able to take something so complex and daunting and make it approachable to students who are intimidated by it. Ibrahim is someone I hope to know and learn from far beyond this course.
Great. Being a local from the Middle East, he gives his own explanation, along with some historical contest, about eh situations in the Middle East
This course was very informative. I will even continue to read the assigned books annually for stimulation...

19. Other comments:
This is an excellent course, and should be required for more majors and programs. American students can learn a lot from Dr. Aoude about their government and the things done in our names, and with out money overseas.
I learned so much from this course. It's enabled me to take a broader, analytic, and deeper view of the Middle East and the world.
This course was educational and worth taking!

21. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The oral presentations for both chapters and our final paper were good. The presentations on the final paper were very interesting... it was nice to see the interest of others in our class.
I really liked student presentations because it made learning easier. it also helped to better understand class readings. i also like current events because it let's the class know what's going on in the middle east.
The readings and open discussions. Also, the map quiz was a lot of fun.
Learning more about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
The readings assigned were incredibly interesting and it increased by understanding and changed my viewpoint on issues and conflicts in the Middle East.
The History of the Middle East, and its current politics and economy.
This course blew me away by its content within.
Just learning more about the Middle East.
current events. historical connections to issues affecting our times that i never understood/was aware of before. great case issues.
I like the fact this course challanged the mis-education that American citizens have been indoctrinated with. The professor presented information from all perspectives regarding issues surrounding the middle east, and was not biased. He often kept his person opinions to himself, and stated that he was neutral on certain issues.
Entitlement of our own opinions
The current events were great.
This opened my eyes to a great amount of controveries going on and it had prepared me to embrace the outcomes of the future. The knowledge I gained will allow me to take an extra step forward beyond everyone else who hasn't encountered this information. Most of all, I enjoyed how Professor Aoude is so halarious. He has some awsome come backs / jokes.
I enjoyed our presentations, they helped me to become comfortable with my classmates. I also liked looking into topics that the media does not always cover, it really opened my eyes to what is going on in the world. I also like that we can have opinions and discuss them in class, the environment was friendly, the discussion was applicable not only to school but to life. I also liked the professor, there should be a box where we can comment on him, but there is not. He was not only knowledgeable of the material for the course, but he also knew above what I expected him to know. He knew the most interesting dates for different wars in the Middle East. He knew so much, I rarely saw him refer to notes, it was very natural for him to teach us. I think if the class had a different professor, it would not have been as good. I am WAY more ready to learn from someone who knows the topic, and he knew it very well! He also helped to guide us in our projects and was very available for meeting with us outside of class to organize our thoughts and ideas.
Discussion of Orientalism.
22. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I didn't care for the guest speakers we had. They were really radical in their thinking and forced their ideas and ideals on us instead of just presenting facts. Also, I didn't like the integration of the subject of religion. This wasn't a religion class and so I thought we spent too much time on it.
the short turn around towards the end for our papers.
The Said Reader was the least enjoyable due to the fact that it discusses mainly theory.
Although student presentations are good in that it forces the student to learn the material well enough to teach and I realize that it is out of the teachers control on how well students present, but many of the student presentations were so boring and horrible that it was a complete waste of time that could have been better spent doing something else.
maybe... speaking in front of people.
I don't think there was anything about the course that I didn't like.
none
I would have loved to have more guest speakers from Mddle East.
Current events often ended up just being presented for discussion by the instructor. Which was not bad, but the class did not always have many opportunities to discuss single topics openly. Honestly the instructor knows a lot about the subject that is always very obvious but I think sometimes he talks about topics that might be very constructive and intellectually challenging for the class to discuss and think about.
There were no videos in the beginning, only until people's presentations. I think if videos were used, the class would be more attentive and engaged in discussions.
Nothing.. only the room was very small and the door is a little broken, these are facility issues. The CLASS was wonderful!
23. What changes would you make in the writing assignments?
nothing.
The writing assignments were essential in better understanding the course readings and makes the student think more analytically.
None
None
I will prepare for it a lot earlier. Because its not easy!! Though I must say it was kind of fun as well. Learned a lot...
Nothing. They seemed fair.
none
None.
Nothing.
Writing assignments were great. I would not change anything because I can tell the instructor has tried many different methods and this one has worked out best.
None, equally challenging yet simple enough to do if organized.
I wouldn't make any changes. The assignments made sense. We were able to apply what we learned reading the materials and explain different themes presented.
Would be better spread more evenly across the semester.
24. My overall evaluation of this course is...
it was a good course, i would recommend it to other students and would take another course taught be this professor.
The professor has a lot of knowledge in the course subject/material and made it comfortable for students during discussion.
This course helped me to develop a deeper understanding of the course cirriculum and contributed to an interest in learning more about the topic.
Great course, I was able to gain a lot of knowledge and insight about the Middle East and its people.
Great! It is a course that everybody should take, especially considering the global climate of fear and tension in regards to the Middle East and Muslims.
Excellent
fantastic! amazing teacher. full of knowledge full of kindness
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wanted to learn more about the Middle East.
GREAT! THANK YOU Professor Brahim!!!!
it was excellent, it's the perfect course to take, at this moment, especially since this country in is the middle of fighting two wars with on end game.
highly recommended
Very positive course. I think that it should be broken down a little bit as a lower level class (maybe less about the Palestinian Question) and then reinvented as an upper level or advanced topics course.
Great class, interesting Professor, criteria and class mates. I had a blast!
I really enjoyed it! My classmates were polite and knowledgeable. The instructor was great and friendly, approachable and informative. He should get a raise! :0) Don't forget to add that! Thank you for a wonderful semester! This class helped me understand many new ideas.
An excellent and very relevant class.
