Tufts University: Brigitte Lane - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Lane is a sweet, soft-spoken woman. In fact, she's so soft-spoken that after the first 5 minutes of class, you're already falling asleep. For a 3 hour class, that's bad news. The class is supposed to be a mixture of literature and cinema, but movies definitely take up a much smaller portion of the class than expected. Instead, most of the time is spent recounting the plot summary of the book we read for that week, never really delving into much analysis, and each week there's a new book. Participation is a big part of the grade, but "discussion" is superficial and lacks energy. Also, unless you're a grad student or knew Professor Lane previously, don't expect her to know your name, even in this relatively small class.
Typically one novel (in French) a week, 2 oral presentations and 2 papers over the course of the semester. Meets once a week.
