Cha, Sowan has attended my history class for two consecutive years, during which she has developed sincere interest
in the subject and confidence in her analysis and judgment. The topic of Nihilism in Russia was given to her as a simple
term assignment (for which students are given one month); she spent extraordinary effort and wrote a comprehensive, solid
description and analysis, in a field (Russian cultural and socio-political history) which had been alien to her before she took
on the task. In the age of the internet I want to stress that her usage of Korean language sources, her understanding of the
matter and minor flaws in her English expression, which have been corrected for the online version of the text, prove that she
had full ownership.
Her paper compares to a first year college seminar presentation.
