History of Rock and Roll
Fall 2023 - Carlos was an incredible professor, however, this song is more about song analysis rather than history. Her teaching style was charismatic, informative, and organized while keeping a room of two hundred people interested, but you don't even need to attend the lectures to succeed in this class (I have been to about two and I have a 99% haha). I thoroughly enjoyed Professor Carlos's course and teaching style, I can't see one real weakness other than I had to frequently teach myself the basis of song analysis, such as some song forms and time signatures. The real test is your TA, I had Lang and she was decent. She was kind of picky on random things when grading and gave us one pretty sizable listening journal per week plus another assignment every other week but it was manageable. Our Friday discussions also oftentimes feel like a high school class full of pairing up in groups and doing an ungraded assignment that passes the time. Seems pointless most of but it's easy. This class is just a lot of writing! Once you get the format of the first two weeks down you're golden- it's the exact same for the rest of the quarter. Take the class for an easy A!!
