Most Helpful Review
Winter 2020 - This class consisted of 4 in-class quizzes and 2 papers: 1 paper being a collaborative essay with a partner from your discussion and the other paper being a self-reflective paper. There was no official midterm or final. Participation counts as well. Depending on your TA, you may have extra assignments, but nothing too serious. The quizzes were based off of assigned readings, and the readings themselves were easy to understand and not too long. The readings were given to us through CCLE, meaning we did not have to invest in any textbooks. The quiz prompts were hinted or given to us ahead of time in lecture and sometimes talked about in discussion, making the quizzes fairly easy. The quizzes were essay-style and limited to 2 front pages in a blue-book. Attending lecture is definitely necessary to do well in this class. Lecture, however, is very interesting overall as Professor Basarudin takes this class very seriously and cares about her students. The papers are bit more on the difficult side, but are still very intriguing. The prompts given are based off documentaries we watch in lecture and again, assigned readings. It's definitely doable and a very interesting GE! Important to note that tardiness is not tolerated. Doors will close and you will not be allowed to enter. Be sure to be on time! Although Basarudin may appear a bit strict at first, she will grow on you. She encourages student participation (not just for your grade) but for your own learning experience. I have genuinely enjoyed this class and 100% recommend.
