Professor Streeter is a great professor, she is very caring and helpful. She is not the best lecturer though but you can skip lecture and still have no problem getting an A (as long as you read the assigned books). There is a lot of reading but the course material itself is VERY INTERESTING and the class is fairly easy!

Professor Streeter cares deeply about what she teaches. She was always a ball of energy even when she was discussing some of the most shameful parts of American history. I was able to learn different perspectives and understand American history like I hadn't before. The assignments weren't too difficult. There were many readings, but that's to be expecting from this type of class.

I took this class as my first ever course as an incoming freshmen and it was not at all bad, actually a bit easy. The readings were occasionally a lot but they're pretty straightforward- nothing was a super hard read it was just really long. I was completely online for this course and we had weekly quizzes that were a larger chunk of our grade and they were super easy. The final was super specific questions from the reading- I got by by referencing the text a lot but it would've been super hard if you don't really read. Overall pretty interesting class, the prof is so nice and very helpful and engaging. As long as you're listening during lecture and taking notes you're fine-99% of what was on the quizzes was stuff she literally said word for word when lecturing. good luck!!

Took this class as a ge req., and it was not a bad class; however, the professor does tend to get off topic at times, stick to a certain idea for a long time, or changes what she says often during her lectures. Despite, she is very helpful, if you have any questions email or go to her office hours, she is clear and will answer your questions/provide the help you need.
YES you need to READ the books, her lectures and assignments are based off what is read and learned from lectures. Also, the final exam is multiple choice and will ask you in depth/specific questions on the books. So basically, if you don't do the readings assigned, you will not pass the exam, or if you do read, make sure you thoroughly understand the books (do not skim read).

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.)

Streeter is very passionate about African American studies, but honestly I did not enjoy this class at all. The lectures are very boring, and they are often repetitive. One time she spent a whole one hour talking about one slide (and many things that weren't on that slide), and it felt like the lectures were very confusing. Also, my TA was very strict on grading, and he took off points in places that I didn't expect him to. The other TA, however, was more lenient, so your mileage may vary when you take this class.
The workload for this class though is fairly light - 2 responses papers (2 pages each), 1 take-home midterm, and 1 take-home final. If you're willing to endure thru tiring lectures and get a fairly simple class, go for it. Otherwise, I'd recommend finding another GE.
