Tufts University: Melissa Wender - Japanese - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Melissa Wender | JPN080 - Japanese Film| Japanese2005-03-26

Professor Wender is a nice person, concerned with students' progress, and enthusiastic about the films (her selection covers many genres and time periods). The class meets twice a week, and one of those days is for film viewing after a short discussion. Class centers around discussion of readings and films. Class participation is part of the grade and Prof Wender is tolerant of other views. This class won't kill you and is interesting so long as students keep the discussion going.

Counts for world civ & humanities requirements.

Manageable amount of background readings for the films every week. 2-3 paragraph comment about each film (by email) graded on a check +/- system. 1 Midterm paper (6-7 pages) and take-home final (3 questions, 10-12 pages). If you like artsy films, comfortable with film/literature analysis, and put in the effort, you can get an A.
