Below is a sampling of emails I have received from students.

A student taking ownership for her grade:

“I understand the paper wasn’t very well written and also because it was my first time writing a scientific paper it was challenging, but overall I’m happy with my grade. I mean it would’ve been nice to have an A, but I’ll just have to work more towards getting it, so I actually feel like I deserved it.”

A student who appeared not to pay attention:

“Also, I’ve been meaning to tell you that, despite what you may think I was doing on my computer during classes, it really wasn’t anything other than notes and my email – I really was paying attention!  I actually did learn a lot about human evolution I hadn’t thought about before, so thanks.  I enjoyed your course this summer and I’m glad that I chose to take this one of all of the ANT classes as a behavioral science course that I need for medical school, so thank you. ”

A student thanking me for the course:

“I absolutely loved your class and the material covered.Thanks for a wonderful quarter! I learned a lot.”
