Archaeology of North America
Fall 2022 - Dr. Neubauer is my favorite professor at UCLA after taking this class. She is so knowledgeable and cares a lot about the subject and her students. The course was divided into two quizzes, a short paper and a research paper+debate. All the assignments are manageable as long as you come to lecture and complete the readings (which are usually quite interesting). She offers a lot of extra credit that can boost your grade up to two ranges (B+ to A). She also notes that if you participate in class and care about your grade, she might even boost it to three ranges! Take this class you won't be disappointed, as long you somewhat have an interest for archaeology.
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.
