Professor : R. Barron

Comment :
Barron is a typical movie type of psyc prof. White beard, slightly balding and wears argyle sweaters. He's extremely nice and approachable however, you have to sit in the front of the class of you will fall asleep because his voice is extremely calming. The prof is extremely dedicated to his students, and will take that extra mile for you. He hand marked 150 essays in my class because he felt that the TA would have no clue how much process work we all put into it since he had many email correspondences between students. I highly recommend this course if you're interested in child psyc. The only bad part is the group project, however, if you end up with a good topic and good group, the project isnt bad at all. Textbook is not extremely necessary, you should read it, but get it at the library. This rating is strictly based on Rodderick Barron's class, may be different from other profs who teaches this course.

I found this a bit of a rough course to get through, but I am definitely not a structure/functions of the brain kind of person. Still it is a survivable course psychology. You just need to stay on top of the information.
