Here is a run down of my classes:
|The two main books we use|
The first week of school, I ended up switching sections of this class. It fit my schedule better, and from looking at the syllabus, I could tell I would do better with my new professor's structure. I have Father David Theroux. He is so nice and always happy, he says good morning to everyone by name when we walk in to class. His class is early in the morning, from 8:30-935 on M/W/F, and even though sometimes I am still waking up, I enjoy it a lot. You can tell he puts a ton of work into his slideshows because they are really informative and fun to look at. We have already covered the Old Testament and the New Testament, and we have moved on to the early Church! Every student at Saint Mike's has to take a 100 level religion course, so this class fulfills that requirement. I am also considering adding a Religious Studies minor because I am enjoying it so much.
|My Psych text book- it cost $8 on half.com!|
General Psych is probably the most challenging class I am taking. It's not anything I can't do, it's just that we cover a lot of information. My professor, Professor Adams, is really straightforward with the material we are learning and the evaluations, and really helpful if we have questions. I have this class right after Christianity, from 9:45-10:50. His slide shows are also really well done. They usually have some amusing sound clips or videos to demonstrate the concept we are learning about. He also puts all his slide shows on eCollege, which is the class website, so we can download them to take notes on or study from. He starts every class with a little music and a comic on the overhead, which is a really cool way to begin. Because I am a Psychology major, this is a required class.
|One of the books we use|
My first class on Tuesdays and Thursdays is The Examined Life, my First Year Seminar. I have it from 9:45-11:20. The class is longer than my M/W/F classes, but it doesn't feel like it. My professor, Professor Inness-Brown Monley (long name, long story) is awesome. In the class, we are learning how to write Scholarly Personal Narratives, telling a story and weaving in research we have done. It's great because we are learning how to locate and deal with sources while becoming better writers. There are only fifteen students in my class, so it is really small and we have all gotten to know each other really well. We do a lot of group work like peer editing so we can get feedback on our writing. Every First Year student has to take a First Year Seminar, so this class fulfills that requirement.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me! Have a great week, everyone! :)
