Studies in Formulation of American Foreign Policy
Winter 2021 - I feel like this Professor is OK but not my favorite so far. So this is the grading rubric for the class: Quizzes: 8 Each Quiz worth: 12.5% That's it... Basically whatever score you get in the quizzes will then be calculated for your final grade. It sucks because you either may not do well and it weighs down your grade or you may do well throughout the quarter. There is lots of reading so take note of that. Find people who will be your study buddy. If you cannot take the quiz, he will offer you an assignment instead. Go to the Writing Center because he is a harsh grader. LIKE REALLY HARSH. FYI, the quizzes are timed and open-notes but in reality, you may not have a lot of time to go back to the assigned reading to find the answer. The quizzes are 30-minutes long. Questions range from 18-21. Like I said, if you are a good test-taker, take his class. I had to switch my grade type because I screwed up on the first quiz. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend him because I get extreme anxiety during timed tests. I would recommend Professor Leslie Johns (123 International Law) with TA Abigail or Kye Barker (116B Continental Political Thought) or 149 with Sasha Issenberg (Presidency). These are the best professors I've taken and lenient with gradings.
