Archaeology of North America
Fall 2021 - Professor Neubaeur was great! I honestly was hesitant when I enrolled in her class because she had no reviews and she is new to UCLA, but this class was amazing! Very very easy to get an A, there are also two short extra credit papers you can do to bump your grade but I didn't even need them. There are two quizzes and two papers, with one of the papers being 45% of your grade along with 5% of a debate participation based on that paper. She grades superrr leniently and is very fair. The quizzes were open note and based on the readings and powerpoint lectures she had. As long as you do all the assignments you won't get less than an A.
I thought the class was pretty interesting. We only had to write four short essays, which were graded fairly. Yeah, so Scott is very uptight and anal, but it's part of his character. He's obviously very knowledgeable about archaeology, and I'd take more of his classes in the future.
He is a very knowledgeable professor and very cute! The things you have to do in this class to get an A. 1. Attend Class and take notes, he has power points online but he has said himself those are there to help him! 2. Memorize sites on a map, they will be on the exam. He has two papers for his class, both are two pagers. Really easy in my opinion. He will have you summarize two articles he picks and have you synthesis them in a cohesive well written manner. Just don't be lazy and write them a night before. His exams aren't that difficult it is just a lot you have to memorize. I stopped reading the book after 4th week, but sometimes if you are stuck on a concept the book will help.
