Tufts University: Wentworth Bowen - 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.

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!
