Past Student Feedback
- Professor DeMarco's comments initiated further discussions or prompted action where necessary. Her grading was always in a timely fashion. I looked forward to reading her comments about my assignments. Thank you!
- Throughout the course she continued to give guidance on references and formatting. I very much needed help and appreciated it. I learned as much about APA style writing as ethnography and I'm very happy about that. She was also a very challenging instructor that expected a lot and held us up to that expectation. I think the class was better for it.
- I really appreciated how thorough Professor DeMarco was in her grading. She provided very detailed and thoughtful feedback rather than just a grade, which made my work feel more valued. I also appreciated how willing she was to be contacted for questions. I felt very comfortable reaching out to her when needed and she was very responsive. The conference call/webinar at the start of the term was a nice way to "meet" her and set expectations for the class.
