she is a very good teacher and she is really demanding. you must read a the chapters well and understand it well before going to class. her class can be boring but be sure to understand what she is saying because surely you will get it for the exam. the questions for the exams are given a week before the actual exam. Do not expect a grade on omnivox until 3 weeks after the end of the course. she is really kind and she is readily available anytime after class. There is no Social events.
At first you may be deceived in thinking her classes are very easy but make sure to pay attention during her classes because her exams are everything that's covered in class and you have to make references to what she discusses. She is a VERY hard marker so a good essay that covered everything will typically give you about 78% tops (class average mid-60s). But she does offer a lot of extra credit. Also if you have friends in the class you can take turns paying attention and copy notes later.
Okay, do not take her, and I am not exagerating. She has no clear criteria for her essay corrections. She just gives you a grade and in your texts are random illisible comments. She expects too much and will give you the minimum grade even if you did more than the minimum. she NEVER posts grades. She waited until the last day of grade updating in december to actually just post a final grade, a number, without st. dev. and without the actual grades. I could write much more. dont take her, or fail
Valerie Broege is a disgrace to humanities. I am passionate about philosophy, and have always enjoyed my humanities courses to the utmost degree, while getting amazing grades in them ( 99 % and 94 %). This woman did not only succeed in boring me with my passion, but she also wasted my time. Her Science & Society course has no critical thinking aspect to it. She just throws random facts at you, without challenging your beliefs and knowledge. Plus, her tests are unreasonable. I expect a bad grade.
she teaches humanities not gym. u shud avoid her if u want to get good grades. her marking on tests are unreasonable. she expects u to write everything she says in class on the test, if not she takes a bunch of marks off. dont take her!
AMAZING teacher VERY knowledgeable!I learnt so many interesting things in her class!I actually enjoyed attending her class ppl who complain are closed minded Her test are easy you just have to listen and take notes!!If you dont intend on showing up then dont expect to pass one of the few teachers who actually teaches things you want to know about!she expects a lot from her students because she believes everyone is capable of learning and in turn using that knowledge to make good decisions
Had her for Science and Society, really awful. A lot of work, and a lot of responses and assignments. I had a full course load, and she made me put in a lot more work, and shes a hard marker.
Took Science and Society. Watched movies and then answered questions. Her exams are pretty straight forward, but make sure to take a lot of notes!!!!!! I don't know why people do not like her, she's
Very hard teacher ! Avoid if possible. 60% of class failed. your call.
I read the 600 pages books and regretted it. She summarizes the book's part, so take note if u didnt read. The only downfall is lost of participation marks for not answering her questions in the book.
Wow. She's really informative. When you speak with her, you can tell she is really intellectual.
Mkay, just don't expect to pass with flying colors cuz it ain't gonna happen. The tests include what was talked about n class.. so take notes. You don't even have to read the books, but she'll ask q's
I took both meaning of life and archetype classes. Meaning of life is totally boring, and some material is totally irrelevant. It's really hard to get a good grade in that class. Don't take her for that. The archetype class is more interesting since it deals with mythology and real life. Essay exam is easy for the archeype class if you read the book. She loves when you write a lot, even if it's not totally relevant. She can be funny when she talks about real life examples...
very hard marker. picks on you if you don't do the readings.
If you have a positive attitude, you will last through the classes...if you are interested in greek mythology and C.G. Jung, you'll find this class to be a breeze...the classes do get awfully repetitive, sometimes, and I just had to miss a few for that reason...Ms. Broege is hilarious when it comes to discussing things that are in style nowadays...she's like anyone of your parents; tries to keep up with the times, but can't. She also has funky jewelry.
She's a veryhard marker. Had her for humanities102, lots of reading to do. Very very hard to get over an 85.
I think she's a great teacher. To me the course was very easy .If you are interested greek mythology and psychoanalysis (Jung) you will adore it. The class is very easy and relaxing and interesting!
can you spell boring. Now her class is a total waste of time. She talks about random stuff and it makes you want to get up and get the heck out of the classroom
Yes,she is hard, you must work and participate,it is only boring if you let it be. Have a good attitude and you'll have a good semester
It might be boring to be in a class with almost no work but just read and go over it class. 2 tests and one paper; ALL THE WORK REQUIRED, (but lots of reading!)
Know ur myth(names,function etc.)perfectly write about it on ur essays N u'll have an easy 90+ u must be ready all da tym cuz she asks students on wut dey read
shes tree beard from LOTR: two towers. long boring talks with useless boring work. if you really want to know things you will never need to know take her.
She gives you 6 questions that are on the test and chooses 2 for u to write 2-4 pages, not double spaced, about these goddesses. Honor student found her hard.
essay form tests. hard to know exactly what she's expecting u 2 write but she gives u the questions b4 hand to prepare
BORING AS HECK!!!! She doesn't like it if you don't participate in class and if you walk out all the time!!!
She was wonderful. Open to field trips - great prof for expressing your ideas. Be prepared and you'll have an easy semester.
take notes in class and review them before the 2 tests and u'll get an easy 90. plus one essay to do for this class, its easy but very boring!
she let you prepare for exams at home, didnt give much work
