Tufts University: ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Wentworth Bowen | ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society | English2005-11-15

Review:
I made the mistake of assuming this class would be interesting and fun because of the title, and it was the biggest mistake of my life. The film selection is terrible, and screenings quickly become a tiresome chore as opposed to a fun addition to the class. Professor is nice, but old-fashioned, stiff, and seemingly unenthusiastic about the material. He appears to casually dismiss all ideas and opinions that differ from his own, and does not leave much room for creativity in discussions or writing.

Workload:
Weekly film screenings, one group research presentation, and lots of writing. A few short, relatively open-ended essays to begin with, several longer papers about the films, and one 10-12 page research paper on a topic of your choice. Instructions are confusing, but profressor allows for an unlimited number of revisions, so you can ultimately get the grades you want.

Kristina Aikens | ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society | English2005-07-01

Review:
One of the nicest people EVER. Friendly and obviously interested in what was being taught, and more then willing to help. She made the class interesting by mixing current events, comics, novels, and movies in order to get people thinking.

Workload:
I didn't think the assignments were hard as long as you kept on top of them. Some people struggled with procrastination. 4 or 5 essays, 1 group project, and several responses along with many reading assignments. All the reading was interesting, and the essays were open-ended enough where people could pick something they were interested in to write about.

David Valdes Greenwood | ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society | English2005-04-27

Review:
Dave really loves film and he really cares about writing, both of which come clear in the class. He has made me a more critical thinker and really forced me to work on my writing. He lets us call him at home and e-mail him, which was cool. I have always struggled with English but Dave made me want to work harder and do better.

Margaret Toth | ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society | English2005-04-12

Review:
Professor Toth is very young and her teaching reflects that - in a very good way. The films she selected for viewing were eclectic and expansive, ranging from popular Hollywood films to foreign and independent films to new wave cinema and demonstrate her openness to new ideas. Discussions, though occasionally stilted by lack of participation in a 7 person class, were often interesting and though-provoking, stimulated by her insights and comments. She is very reachable and encourages students to use her office hours. By having taken this class I have learned a whole new appreciation for film and I feel that my tastes have become much more refined.

Workload:
There are 5 major papers and the occasional short paper, and while it's actually quite a bit of writing, it doesn't seem like it because of the spacing between them and the time you're given to write them. She's a pretty tough grader, but gives you the opportunity to rewrite them and offers copious comments.

Wentworth Bowen | ENG002M - Love, Sex, and Society | English2004-11-17

Review:
This is a film class, so you get to watch movies about love and sex, which can be interesting. However, the in-class discussions were stilted and assignments were very vague. It took a long time for most of the class to figure out what exactly he wanted in our papers, and he offered very little feedback about quality of writing - it was more about what was included in the paper.

Workload:
The assignments are not straightforward at all - he gives you a long paragraph with many almost unrelated questions that all have to be answered in your paper, no matter how much you have to stretch the topic to fit them in. There is a review due the day after you watch the film, so be prepared to spend Sunday nights writing. Due dates can nearly always be extended, so remember to ask!
