Overall not many difficult areas; mainly open-book quiz, final exam, & group presentation

However do be prepared for the tutor to be prone to picking on random people and mood swings, especially during presentations or opinions he disagrees with.

(P.S. do not take the attendance sheet without his knowledge, people learned that the hard way...)

啲戲又悶又舊 個professor唔鍾意人上堂傾計
一做啲佢睇唔過眼嘅野 就當眾奚落你 黑你面
每星期就花三個鐘受佢氣 group discuss埋啲無聊野
Overall, 爛grade course, really not recommended.

The teacher is a bit weird and has strange mood swings. It's quite hard to grasp what he wants from the students. However, you just have to complete an assignment, a quiz and a group project, which are all pretty easy tasks.

The teacher does pick on people whose English ability is weak and he publicly embarrassed one of my group mates.

I would recommend this course for those who want to chill during class.

呢科真係好悶 又唔知點樣拎好Grade
一定要上堂 冇得走
尤其係dr.harris播d戲勁悶.. philo其實唔悶 只係佢教得好片面
present係自己揀一齣戲 再揀一個theme黎做
lawrence好hea 但唔似好grade
佢出既final test勁難 佢只係播過一齣戲係Hunger game
但個test係問頭半齣戲死左第幾個district既人 其實問d好細致既野

Students are just required to write two 500-word essays, work on a group project and complete the end-of-term quiz so the workload is in no way considered heavy. However, I do find the group project somewhat challenging since the questions given by the professor were rather problematic. As for the quality of the lectures, I believe that they are not that beneficial to me as the materials covered were just general. It is not that easy to get a good grade but it is still a recommendable course because of the extremely light workload.

有三個topic 1.human nature 2.sexism 3.racism
功課唔多,兩份assignment(各500字), 一個present, 最後一堂exam,好似係五擇三長問答
