This is not a hard writing class. Lecture is quite interesting. Lots of reading materials were assigned every week but I didn't read them all. There are three writing projects. I don't think the writing projects are based on the assigned reading since we can search online to have better understanding on the topic we want to write. As an international student, I made many grammar mistakes but what's more important is the thesis of an essay. Talking to TA about the thesis is the best way to get good score on writing projects. You need to writing another essay in 3 hours for the final, and it is not that hard.

Professor Tamai is an expert in Asian American studies. She is really passionate about the lectures. I did not miss any of her lectures.
The workload of this course is really heavy. There are tons of readings.
There are three papers in total. You really need to put effort into them. Your TA is going to grade the papers, so definitely talk to her/him.
The final is writing a 5-7 pages paper in 3 hours. It seems scary at first, but professor Tamai gives really general prompts so that if you studied this course, you know what to write about.
