Tufts University: Melissa Wender - Japanese - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Melissa Wender | JPN080 - Japanese Film| Japanese2005-11-07

Fun class with an interesting and exciting instructor. Professor Wender is very knowledgeable about Japanese society and cinema and loves to teach. Class discussions are quite fun and provoke deeper insight into the films. Some of the films are long and a bit dull, but also very good. Others are less interesting and absurd, but usually shorter.

The reading is fairly heavy, especially with the way the class schedule is set up (Class Tues and Thurs, movie Wed). However, I found that most of it was not necessary. Most discussions break from the readings and move on to general commentary on the film or Japan. Weekly movie responses are not difficult, however with her 5 point scale, most people get 3's until they figure out just what she's looking for. Only other work is one 6 page paper as a midterm and a take home final.
