Professor Leap is one of the greatest professors I have encountered at UCLA. Beyond the fact that she is brilliant, her life lessons as well as the information you learn in her classes will last a lifetime. She doesn't throw a bunch of material at you and expect you to memorize it and then regurgitate it on a final exam, but she provokes students' feelings and emotion, making a lasting impression on every student in her class. If you cannot handle or are easily made uncomfortable by vulgarity, then stay away from her classes. But in my opinion, it is refreshing to have a Professor using language that is as harsh and fitting as the severity of the things she is talking about. She seems tough when speaking to the class as a whole, but when you approach her during break or office hours she is very sweet. Her book, which is a requirement of the class, is INCREDIBLE. I actually enjoyed reading for once. It is such an incredible, detailed and well written novel that explores her own personal struggles as well as her experiences on the street with gang members or "homies" as she calls them. Another refreshing thing about Professor Leap is that her so called "research" is not numbers or statistics. She has real life interactions and interviews or "life stories" with gang members and records their personal history. GRADES: She herself thinks grades are bullshit. Leap prefers that you actually learn something in her class, which is why she lures students in with the promise of an A, and then makes it VERY easy to obtain the A. The only thing is that you must attend every lecture and stay the entirety of the class. Which is actually enjoyable considering you watch eye-opening documentaries or have a "homie" come visit during lecture and speak about their life which will bring you to tears listening to. TAKE HER. She's THE greatest professor and I do not have enough good things to say. All of the idiots on here that say she's terrible do not know what they're talking about. They are probably just extremely sensitive to a "bad word" every once in awhile and need to understand that they attend a public university and are no longer in the eighth grade.
