Winter 2022 - I would say she’s tough , I’ll admit but she is also very helpful. She gives you so much clarity and she is very very chill . The work you do might be a pain but it is very helpful. It helped me with my writing skills. Her group and individual conference which are mandatory are very resourceful , you get so much great insight and clarify on your writing.
Fall 2021 - The workload of this class was hell in the beginning but as you reach week 5 or 6, you will get comfortable with the pace of the class. Make sure you attend EVERY class and complete EVERY HOMEWORK on time. The class is a cakewalk unless you challenge the professor. You will genuinely feel yourself get better with your writing. The lessons are super useful. There are tons of group activities and he always appreciates new ideas and voices. Talk to him during office hours and discuss your narrative's progress. He is always friendly and gives the best advice. Pro tip: A+ is 99-100%, A is 90+% so don't stress if you mess up one or two homework.
I actually had Esha for Women Studies 10. She is an amazing professor! Not only is she adorable, but she is also extremely concerned, helpful, and sweet. She really gets into discussion during lecture, which makes the class a thousand times more interesting. She encourages everyone to participate, and even memorizes the names of those who do! She is very passionate about the subject matter, which personally, i found extremely interesting. There's a lot of readings, but most of them are pretty short and the ones that are long are fast reads because they're interesting, and, for the most part, pretty contemporary. She is the nicest lady ever; extremely approachable and very kind. I would definitely, 100% recommend this class to anyone, including guys. It's not difficult at all. The midterm is a breeze if you go over the study guide. It's very straightforward, simple, and short. They also grade fairly. The final is take home, and is pretty much formatted the same way as the midterm, just longer. I loved my TA, Jennifer Musto. So if you have the chance of having her, definitely take her! She's passionate, intelligent, and also really sweet. Although she posts the power points online, and even sends most of them straight to your email, I attended almost every lecture simply because I enjoyed Esha's stories and found the class interesting. The discussions can be hilarious, as are some of the stories Esha tells. She also shows great artwork and movie clips. Overall, great professor, great TAs, and great class! Definitely take it!
Fall 2022 - I'll split this review into two parts the class and the professor: The class: The class has a lot of work, she gives a lot of work that can sometimes be too much and feel unnecessary. Participation matters and your final is a final portfolio of your essays written throughout the class. There are also presentations and attendance is taken. The Professor: Professor Dickey is a wonderful professor. She is very funny and is very forgiving/understanding with late work and sometimes deadlines. Her lectures can give you the inspiration to write essays and her feedback for your essays are very helpful. I really do not like English but Professor Dickey made the class fun and interesting.
