started off the lecture by telling

use the microphone. Honestly I
believe I was on my phone until
she said that. It caught my
attention because normally our

only missed 1 day all semester

getting there every day but after
Taz spoke I can't wait until her
book comes out. We have had

Additional
comments:

Learning about the use and


abuse of Adderall and how the
media portrays it. In college you
hear a lot about it from students
and peers so it was insightful to
learn about it from an
anthropology point of view
5 I don't even like anthropology
how it was so relatable to the
but she made it super interesting class
5 I really liked her Medical
Anthropology lecture. I enjoyed
her ice breaker of classifying
what was a disease and what
was not. It made me look at
diagnosing things in a different
aspect which is what
Anthropology is suppose to do.

extremely informative. Taz

I enjoyed talking about the


Adderall use on Twitter because
that is so strange to me that
people want everyone to know
they are taking it. That seems so
strange to me because usually
people try to hide their
medication use.
5 I thought this was the best guest her tone and sense of humore

Yes, I am a pre med student and


I believe that medical

4 She was engaging and tried to
relay a lot of information in a
way that we can understand
what she was talking about.

What was most effective about


this lecture?

The fact that anthropology can


be so interesting and hearing
what it is useful for.
I liked how the topics that you
covered in your lecture were
about a variety of things, even
though they all related to each
other. It was interesting
because it didn't just focus on
one aspect the whole time. It
made it easier to pay attention
and actually learn something.
What I liked most about the
lecture was that Taz was able to
connect this to a movie
(Limitless) the majority of the
seen to see how much of instant
gradification we as americans
want and need.
I found this presentation
enjoyable because I was able to
relate to the part about Adderall.
I know many people that have
used it without a prescription.
I liked the material and new
concepts I learned

The material was very


interesting.

I enjoyed the content because


Medical Anthropology is a
discipline that is often
overlooked. She did a good job
of explaining what people in the
field do.

Would you take a class with this


instructor?

Yes, I would. It is easier to learn


from those who are passionate
about a subject and show
enthusiasm
Yes. She was able to make the
subject actually interesting. She
spoke well and wasn't monotone
or boring. She was able to
make some jokes and kept the
subject interesting while still
making her point and teaching
us something.

I liked how relatable the lecture I would definitely like to take a

in this lecture that college

the abuse of Adderall and other
topics.
How she seemed so upbeat

5 I thought she explained her


material very well even though it
was dense and there were a lot

well thought out and that
adderrall is very prevalent on
campus and should be talked
about and not ignored so I'm
glad she is doing this as her

insight into a very interesting

a lot more about what she was

4 The guest lecture is relaxed than
a regular lecture, although both
of them are related to academic
topics.

Would you take a class with this


instructor?

the advertisements because I
thought the Adam Lavigne ad
was hilarious. I thought it was
presented in a very tasteful and
anthropological way.

The personality of the lecturer.


She was not nervous, (or didn't
appear to be) put all her facts in
a logical sequence, and was
clearly in control of her subject.
It was easy to stay focused.
The ppt slides. To be honestly, a
new kind of ppt slides display
makes me pay more attention
on the lecture.

Yes, she's very informative,


clear, and concise and the
material is really cool

Yes, she is very charismatic and


passionate about that she does.
She makes the material more
interesting with the way she
portrays it as well.
If I was going into the field of
anthropology, I would definetly
take a class with this instructor.
She is very entertaining and I
think the lectures would be very
interesting. But I'm a business
major so I wouldn't take a class
with this instructor because of
the field I'm going in.
Yes, I found the information
presented to be very interesting
and important in today's society.

Yes I would, it seems like there


would be a lot I could learn, and
the topic was very interesting to
me.

No, I am not in ANP major.
