I ended my first last week of my undergrad career by meeting one of the the classes I am TAing for. As we were going through the syllabus, I was nodding along with the professor I saw looks of terror come over the collective face of the room. What was being laid out seems daunting- foreign terms, extensive final project, and a bunch of reading. I remember sitting through this same syllabus, trying to suppress the feeling of fear from showing on my face. That got me thinking- How can I aid their learning and experience in this class? What did I find helpful that will be applicable to them? I hope that I am able to be more helpful than hindrance as they are attempting to learn the basics of academic research of Communication Studies.
