10. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I appreciated learning about the various forms of inequalities and injustices different people all over the world face. It is not just a problem confined ton one population.
The combination of reading, writing, and visual materials made learning in this course an engaged, active experience. Hiroki Igarashi set up the course in such a way that participation, critical thought, and reflection were necessary elements in completing the required work. Igarashi implemented the use of videos, most interesting of which was the India Rising documentary. Teaching the course in this way, he was able to maintain a demanding yet rewarding work load that accomplished and covered a large span of information.

Very good class, I enjoyed the varities of ways in which we were engaged in discussion. The different movies and documentaries, made me think a lot more and analyze how much social is straified.
Excellent, although instructor does ask for quite a bit in such a short period of time.
the writing was good. the reading was kind of alot. i didnt like how much attendance affected your grade
I liked the course. I learned a lot and I was able to contextualize what I have learned in the past in order to frame what I want to pursue in graduate school. Thanks Hiroki
