I love Professor Nathanson! I had her for part of PSY 01 and for PSY 13. She is a sassy Israeli and keeps her classes really interesting by bringing in clips and lots of pictures etc. I loved both of her classes and am absolutely going to try to take more.

Comment:
She was a really good professor. There were a few moments where the lectures were a little boring, but then we also did a handful of activities that were both entertaining and taught something relevant. I would recommend her and the course.

Comment:
The pace is about 20 pages of reading a week in the textbook. The font is comparably big in the textbook, so the readings go by fast. Psych 1 is an easy course, as long as you do all the readings and study well. The lectures are all very interesting and fun. You won't be bored.

Comment:
Most interesting of 3 lecturers in class. Funny at times but went through some slides too quickly/jumped around. I got the impression that she thought we didn't want to be there, so that was off-putting.

If you are taking social psych, take it with Prof Sommers in the fall - you'd be making a mistake taking this section.

She was one of the best teachers I ever had. I really enjoyed her in-class demonstrations-- they make the reading material clear.

I enjoyed her in class, but not outside. She's in charge of determining if outside classes can be transferred in to count toward your psych major, and she's a hard-*** about it.

Able to relate material well to real life situations. Always going beyond the ordinary lecture, bringing in videos, newsclips, etc. Highly recommended.
