Upenn Class: History of Sexuality & Modern World History

Classes at Upenn. Thanks to John!
A History of Sexuality: A lecture on the evolution of sexual mores and sexual attitudes and sexual norms. Students take notes with their Macbooks in the lectures. Sometimes they check on Facebook. The lecturer takes time to clearly communicate assignment rubrics and ideas. She lectures with the aid of visuals.

Modern World History. The lecturer is relaxed. Most of the time using youtube videos of pop culture & music to illustrate the values and circumstances during WWII. His lecture is helped by many adult students in the midst who, having lived through, the period, were open and gracious in sharing their experiences. Students leave when time is up and they have to be at another class, even when the lecturer is still going on. It's ok.
