Fall 2018 - Espino means well, you can tell she is a sincere professor who cares about the subject and about engaging students. The only problem is her lectures are very slide heavy and I hate to say it, but boring. You can tell the class is falling asleep. The readings were interesting and I got a good grade, but you have to juggle weekly responses, participation grades, a paper, final, and midterm. You cant skip her lectures, so take the class if you want to learn about Chicana scholars or how the practice of historiography works. In these two areas I did learn alot, but it was a struggle to stay engaged during classes.
