Final extra credit is for you to write a review (as if you were writing one for an actual blog or magazine) of this class, in general. Please be honest!

Think of it as a mini summary and argument–and remember: have fun, be creative with your wording.
200-300 words in length
Evaluate both good and bad aspects; feel free to make suggestions, too! This only helps me better my own teaching skills 🙂
