They\u0027re shaven and shorn, in black suits to pose as settlers in Tel Aviv for a wedding. Something goes wrong at the crossing, they\u0027re separated, and the action is postponed, long enough for renewed questioning of what they\u0027re about to do. Suha, the well-educated and well-traveled daughter of a martyr, challenges the action. She likes Said and has her own ideas. \"Under the occupation, we\u0027re already dead,\" is Khaled\u0027s analysis. Fate and God\u0027s will seem to drive Said. We must be moral, argues Suha.

First, I present a study of more than 5,500 student comments spanning over eight years of biology, chemistry, physics, and math courses and explore differences in sentiment pertaining to instructor competence, organization/presentation, personality/helpfulness, and overall satisfaction. \u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nOf particular interest are differences in perception conveyed toward male and female faculty, and between faculty of different disciplines. We also compare automatically extracted sentiment scores with quantitative Likert ratings that students enter alongside their comments, and report on the extent to which the quantitative and qualitative evaluations correlate. \u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nThe second project analyzes instructor feedback to student Guided Reflection Forms, weekly online reflections about challenges and setbacks students experience. Sentiment analysis supports the development of a stable basis set (rubric) to describe responses that are robust across both introductory and advanced classes. \u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nThe analysis also reveals the instructor’s subconscious use of the “praise sandwich,” instinctively embedding critiques and suggestions between specific and general encouragements.
