Drama, 1842 to 1945
I took modern drama with Professor Goodwin, and while I think a lot of the comments are pretty harsh, he did give me the only B I have received at UCLA. I loved the material (and I cannot stress that enough, the plays are awesome)and his lectures were informative and engaging. However, as others have written he does not like the people who don't attend lecture or don't participate. Personally, I thought I was participating but... Also, the final paper was on a play that was not discussed in lecture, and we were apparently expected to produce some hard hitting material. I did not miss a single lecture, took extensive notes and still had a hard time with both exams. If you GPA is dear to you, avoid this class unless you are unusually talented at the art of kissing ass. Otherwise, it is a wonderful break from the monotony of literature but be sure to show up, speak up, and read up.
