AFRO-AM 6 Submitted Oct. 20, 2014 Grade Received: N/A

Professor Streeter is well versed in the course material. We explored various authors such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, Ida B Wells. and Bell Hooks. By the way, the course title is, Black Intellectual Thought. I enjoyed the class because Streeter brought in her mastery of English and a feminist critique to the course material. Reading the assigned books helps you to lay a framework for the concepts discussed in lecture. The lecture compliments the readings by giving context to the social and historical realities of the particular time period, it is not simply a review of what we read. So, it definitely behooves you to attend lecture.

If you have a background in African- American Studies, you will absolutely love this course.
If you aren't so familiar with African- American Studies or history, that is fine too because Professor Streeter is really dedicated to making sure students understand the material.

Another plus is that her humor is quirky and lightens the atmosphere when discussing difficult topics (i.e. sexual violence of slavery).

You should take this course! You won't regret it! Professor Streeter is an amazing professor, who really cares about her students.Truthfully, I've never learned so much is such a short amount of time! Her lectures are really in depth, so it is important to do the readings before hand that she assigns and GO TO OFFICE HOURS. Sometimes the class is too big, so she can't answer all the students questions, so office hours is a great chance to meet with her one on one, and talk to her about the questions you might have about the course and the best way to approach the class. There are readings, but as long as you read, she will do the rest and show you what is important. Because it was a GE for me, I was nervous coming in not knowing a single thing about Black Intellectual thought, but she knows that; that is why asking questions on the things you don't understand is important. I really hope this helps. With regards to grading, which most students are concerned about whenever they take a GE Course, it is important to understand her lectures and do the readings, and if you have questions to go to office hours, and the grade will show. She is actually not that hard of a grader, even though you might have a different answer to her question, as long as you use what she has told you and give evidence and proof to support your answer, you will be great! Put in the effort, and your grade will show.

Structure of the class during spring quarter:
-Weekly quizzes just to make sure you attended lecture and were paying attention
- midterm and a final ( which was not cumulative, but could use material learned before the midterm on the final)

AFRO-AM 6, taken Winter 2017 Submitted April 5, 2018 Grade Received: A

Streeter is pretty confusing so if you like organization and clarity DO NOT take this class. I still maintained to get an A. There were 2 short essays, one midterm test, and a 6 page final paper. I managed to do well on everything because it's not too difficult, but I don't feel like I learned much from attending lecture.

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.

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.

ENGL M104A Submitted April 1, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

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.

ENGL M104A Submitted June 11, 2010 Grade Received: N/A

OMG! This woman is horrible - I'm sorry! I have never met a harder grader! I don't know what happened this quarter but she killed us! Although as mentioned above the class had no final or midterm, she based our whole grades on short essays and a longer one at the end. HER GRADING IS SO RIGID AND UNREALISTIC! She kept giving out Cs and B-! I'm not sure how she's an "easy grader" or anything of that sort. She was pleasant and funny and had nice lectures but I feel like half of the class got the axe! I REGRET taking this class as it ruined my GPA. I have taken M104A and M104B and to be honest, they were not like this. I have great knowledge of the subject and did spectacular in my other classes. I honestly do not know what happened this quarter but she KILLED US.

DO NOT TAKE HER.

I have to agree that Professor street is arrogant. her arrogance doesn't stem from her confidence, but rather at her inability or unwillingness to truly listen to other students and treat them in a respectful manner. In the class I took with her, her lectures were usually quite good but she constantly put me off by ingoring student comments (often saying, "we don't have time for discussion.") or rudely rebuffing students whose views regarding the material varied from hers in ANY way. Finally, she was a mildly difficult grader but I didn't think she was impossible. Over all she was a decent professor but not at all pleasant to be around.

AFRO AM 6

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.

M104B: Literature of the Harlem Renaissance

You must take This course with Professor Streeter before you graduate! This is one of 3 professors I will remember when I leave UCLA.

Professor Streeter is extremely knowledgeable, yet very open to letting the students explore their own interpretations of the texts. She responds to emails within 1-3 days, and makes herself available to students outside of class.

I took M104B over the summer. The course consisted of two short essays and one 5-7 page paper in lieu of a final.

The reading list was 85% awesome. Some of the older essays can be a little dry, but it's not too bad. The reading load was heavy at times, but probably because of the 6 week timeframe.

This course really changed my personal perception of the world, and forced met or examine personal choices and relationships within my own culture. I cannot recommend it enough.
