Steer clear. Lectures not recorded, notes/powerpoint slides not provided (just have to type as fast as possible while she talks), exams not open note (which is not something to typically complain about but considering that notes were never provided, it definitely made studying less effective) cancels class 2-3 times during the quarter, then tests students on lecture material that had not been covered due to class being cancelled.

Additionally, even after telling us the exams were based on stories from 1-2 novels along with lecture material, she will ask us the most random question that one would not imagine merit being asked on an exam, like "what was the author's first job?" and "did this story take place in New Mexico or Albuquerque, New Mexico".

Really ineffective way of testing for literacy and understanding of significance of chicano narrative. Seemed like she was just testing for memory of tiny unimportant details rather than comprehension of the greater historical/cultural context of the story. Determined to take points away, exams inappropriately graded.
