Professional Writing: Digital Writing and Web Literacy
Spring 2020 - I love professor Linzi!! She gives so many extra credits and was really able to build a vibrant class where people are encouraged to share their own opinions and anecdotes and I was really able to know everyone in the class. She's also super understanding and forgiving while ensuring we learn as much as possible in the class. This was class split into two: Tuesday and Thursday class. This really helped! Making the class smaller was more effective. The conversations in class were all very relevant to the world today and I felt very connected digitally. We had to write 6 posts and responses on slack about the reading of the week but she gives you lots of space to just ramble about the topics you read about so it was easy to be graded high. We also have to lead a discussion once during the quarter which was super fun! You also get graded for participation which is easy. Just try to talk twice in class but just treat it like you're having a conversation with friends. And lastly, we had a final essay which was around 9-11 pages long. I had trouble choosing a topic but professor Linzi really helped me. I kinda did it last minute so it isn't as amazing as it could have been. Overall, I would LOVE to take a class with Professor Linzi again! Super interesting class to take if you want to do something in digital media in the future.
Fall 2020 - Professor Samuelson is by far the best professor I have ever had at UCLA. She is accessible, helpful, and most importantly personable. This was an 8AM and I woke up everyday excited to join her class. Never in my time as an undergrad have I had such a caring professor who was genuinely interested in getting to know her students. The class itself was super fun and taught me a lot. Very politics focused but duh the election was happening during our quarter. Take this class! You will not regret it. Workload was just right! Some group projects, some individual projects! Very very fun class!!!
