I feel that this class has done so much to open my eyes to the situation in Israel and inform me of the history and events that have created the Israel we know today. I also feel that the class has offered a myriad of differing and important personal perspectives on the issue with all the different video conferences. The only thing I would suggest is a more rigid structure. I understand that it is difficult to work around others' schedules for video conferences, and I understand that things come up, but I have had a little bit of difficulty keeping track of what I need to do when. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but that is my only suggestion for improvement. I still firmly believe that all the readings (especially the Armstrong book) are essential to this class, and I like the project OR paper idea rather than forcing one or the other. This is a well-structured class and I have learned a lot from it, but if at all possible, I would suggest a little bit of a more rigid class structure as far as when to do what readings and when to prepare for which speakers.
