Most Helpful Review

Although sometimes Professor Brown can be vague, his lecture was always so interesting, and it was easy to see that he was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. He's a fantastic lecturer, and honestly has the voice of a motivational speaker. He keeps your attention throughout the entire lecture, and is very helpful when questions are asked during class.

my god, he's a terrible lecturer. it was painful to listen to him for more than 15 minutes. and he seemed a little sassy for me... as for the cluster. it's definitely not worth it. all of fall quarter was basically a review of the same damn thing we've all been learning since 3rd grade. AND THAT QUARTER, I GOT A B. so not worth it. make sure you get a good TA if you decide to take it. makes a HUGE difference. first quarter, i had a new TA that didn't even know herself what to expect from us. terrible experience. the next to quarters i had an awesome TA and got an easy A.

so you're choice, but not my suggestion.

Professor Goeman was a very interesting professor. She was very knowledgeable about Native American history and also personally knew the author of "Bad Indians," which I thought was cool.

Selling EVERYTHING you need for the whole Cluster, including "Bad Indians," which is the required book we need to read for the Cluster, for SUPER CHEAP!!! Text 916-895-1698 if interested.

If you want an easy A, want to get rid of a lot of GEs, and are interested in race, take this Cluster.

Absolutely loved this quarter! If you are looking at this review then you are probably already committed to the year long course.
Professor Fong and Professor Brown were Professors added in this quarter and they were very engaging and would play music at the beginning of lectures.
Professor Bunten and Ortiz were great Prof's as usual. Professor Ortiz also really was compassionate and understanding this quarter, she's actually so sweet!

Grading:
Participation (40%): Same as last quarter (during covid) 40% of your grade is easy participation points if you just do the readings, do lecture participation, and talk during discussion.
Media Paper (30%): They shortened the media paper from previous years so now its only a 1500 word paper, and they just want to see your writing improving across the quarters.
Final (30%): They implemented "biweekly" reflections and the average of those one-pager's was your final exam grade. (Ortiz even cancelled two of them because of our media paper deadline so the writing in this class isn't too overwhelming.)(She might not do the reflections after covid though)

Take Laura Terrance as your TA if you can! She is a really sweet, knowledgeable, and welcoming TA. Her grading is also extremely fair if you put in a good effort!

Final Course Grade: A+
Participation: 100%, Media Paper: 97%, Final Exam (reflections): 100%
