Groeling’s approach is unusually interactive, illustrating key concepts with examples, surveys and experiments that draw on students’ own experiences to drive key points home.

They also tell me that they have become much more sophisticated consumers of advertising (and news, in fact) after having made their own ads.” ( 202 ) LA WeekLy / OCTOBER 5-11, 2012 / laweekly.com
