Comment: A very easy/fair instructor. He reduced the amount of reading when he realized that he was assigning too much reading, so the reading load was manageable. There were only two papers in this class - a 5-page midterm (detailed analysis of a primary source) and a 10-12 page final (a research paper). The essay assignments were very straightforward, and he graded them fairly. If you are looking for an easy way to satisfy the reading and composition requirement, I would highly recommend taking this class with this GSI.
