If you can, avoid Streeter for AfroAM6... She is a sweet lady however, her lectures were confusing, she was always late and most of the time the lectures had nothing to do with the books we read..

On the plus side, only papers.. no exams.
Three 2page thought papers throughout the quarter
one midterm paper
and one final paper

All you had to do was skim the books basically and you're golden..

I would take this course again, just I would not have went to lecture..

Easy A course tho

As the other reviewer said, the lectures are sometimes quite repetitive, and the slides usually don't contain much information relevant to what we're tested on. She'd also go off topic easily about current events or her daily life.

The grading scheme was:
20% attendance at discussion (every absence after the first is -1%, and they were all at 8 or 9am so yikes)
20% two 2-page double-space papers (due Weeks 2 and 4)
30% take home midterm (due Week 6)
30% take home final (due finals week)

For the entire course we were required to "read" six books: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, The Light of Truth by Ida B. Wells, The New Jim Crow, and two books by Angela Davis.

I got by without reading more than a chapter of each, as the first two books are on Sparknotes/Cliffsnotes and the rest you can find as pdfs or just buy hard copies. The lectures were sometimes useful before Week 6: she would drop quotes with specific page numbers from the first three books with the page numbers, and you could just use them on the 2-page papers and the midterm, which was a few short response and one three-page essay. After that, though, the lectures became propagandist and mostly irrelevant to the final, which was two 4-page essays connecting the last four books (she reuses Ida B. Wells from the midterm), as well as an additional 3-page essay you could write for 5% extra credit, all of which were due on Wednesday of finals week. I did fine just pulling a couple random relevant quotes from each book and tying them all together. (One tip for my TA: insert a sentence or two of fluff after every quote, even if it's background info, because she said that shows her that you actually did the reading.)

IF you've never taken a class with her, YOU MUST. Professor Streeter is awesome. Her personality and teaching style is refreshing. I especially recommend ENGL M104. On of my favorite classes because of the readings and the discussions in class.

Dr. Streeter is an amazing professor. The work load is light, 3 mini essays (2 pgs each) and a final paper. As long as you read the texts and come ready to discuss you will do fine in the class. Streeter is an engaging professor. Highly recommend.

Professor Streeter is a very smart woman, kind, very considerate, and open to a students concerns. She will work with you, even allow for a creative project if your so inclined. I did not find her to be at all arrogant as others have said, quite the opposite in fact. On occasion she is scattered, but brilliant non the less!
I loved her seminar and can recommend her to others!

I Definitely recommend this course! It is one of the best courses I have taken at UCLA. It truly made me think more than the obvious. The course itself is doable and truly enjoyable. She is an amazing professor and I could absolutely feel her passion and enjoyment for the topic. You might consider yourself as African American but I definitely recommend this course for further personal exploration and basic awareness of the problems in other ethnicities.
