Tufts University: James Watson - Spanish - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
James Watson | SPN021 - Composition and Conversation I| Spanish2006-05-05

Professor Watson's class was laid back and even fun at times. He's a nice guy and a good teacher, but if you want to do well in the class, you need to participate and get on his good side. There was definitely favoritism toward certain students, and he would call on them much more than others. He is a tough grader when it comes to tests and essays and is very particular about grammar. Although the class wasn't that bad, I probably wouldn't take another class with him since there are easier Spanish professors out there and only took the class as a requirement.

The workload wasn't too bad, although there was consistently some assignment due every week, which got really annoying. 3 tests, 4 essays, a few quizzes, a presentation, and other little assignments throughout the semester. The readings weren't bad. The final is an essay on the last day of class.
