The negative reviews scared me, but a majority are almost 10 years old, and the class has really improved! Professor Camacho structured the class so there were recorded lectures with information needed for the midterm and final, and live sessions with guest speakers about the readings or other stuff related to being Asian American. Lectures were recorded and uploaded on CCLE for a week, but I wish they would have stayed up longer. The content was very interesting and the lectures were really informative. There were also a bunch of Asian American Studies department events that you could earn extra credit for going to (I think like 5-10 points for each event, and there were around 3).

The midterm and final both consisted of a short answer question (approximately half a page) and a longer essay (a page and a half). I was worried about how to answer them, but Professor Camacho provided examples and also gave a study guide.

My TA was Carina and she was super nice and helpful. Discussion was mandatory, but she was understanding if anyone needed to miss or attend a different discussion time. She didn't quiz on the readings, but did have us write a reaction essay for each of them. We also had to write 4 "journals" about anything we wanted that were due by the end of the quarter, and did a short presentation on something related to Asian American history. Carina was very lenient with grading/due dates and everything was graded based on completion/effort.

Overall, a very stress-free class with interesting course material. The AAS department is super approachable and willing to help, so I'd definitely recommend this class.

Professor deGuzman is a great professor to begin a path in Asian American Studies, or simply fulfill a GE requirement with. Although, I did not visit lectures often, he used engaging slides, brought in guest speakers, and even simulated group discussion via Jamboard and other platforms. The way to achieving an A in his class is to always finish your paper ahead of time (1-2 days before), and schedule a private 1 on 1 session for him to review the content before submission day. If he signs off on the paper, it is an automatic 100% eyes closed. However, if your rough draft doesn't completely fly on the first try, he gives spectacular feedback which will enable you to ace the paper for sure. I even failed to complete a quiz on time, and he extended the deadline for me, meaning he is lenient on tardiness and cares about the students. He gives weekly readings, which are quizzed on. However, to be honest, the quizzes were open note, so I did not stress about reading them at all.

This is my first time writing a Bruinwalk review and it's because I LOVE PROFESSOR FONG. She is the best professor I've had at UCLA thus far, and I've been here for three years now. She took such care to convert her class to an online format that was organized and well thought out so that students were never confused about their responsibilities or expectations for the course. Though the class was online, she was able to connect with her students and provided a space for us to connect with each other. She has such a mastery of the subject matter she teaches, and explains extremely complex issues with incredible clarity. Beyond that, she did extra work to connect course material to current events that helped me to understand the underlying issues much better than I would have been able to on my own.

He's a really nice guy! I came in LATE at the end of my FINAL and he let me take it still. I think there was a percentage dock, but still! That was super nice of him. He's really involved in the general community as a community historian. The class is a great foundation for anyone interested in learning about the community and their own family history.
