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.

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.

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.

She was fine throughout the quarter. The trouble came with her "grading" our short papers. She would give V, V(+) and V+. Many people stayed in the V range for their papers (we wrote a 2 page paper per week) and then at the end she announced that the ranges represent A, B and C although throughout the quarter she kept saying the opposite (that they don't stand for a letter grade) and that she would grade us based on improvement, etc. She got sick the last week of class. She gave us the chance to rewrite one of the papers and then when sher rescheduled the class for Friday (not a normal time so people went out of their way to show up) she emailed us 2 hours before to say she's won't show. She then wouldn't accept revised papers via email and said we would not get the same grade if we turned them in late.... YEA! There is no midterm or final. The final is a 8-10 page paper.
She's NICE. REALLY NICE. She spent a long time with me in office hours. But when it comes to grading, I feel like 5 people will get As and the rest of us will hover around the B/C range.
OVERALL: take her but be cautious about your grade regardless of what she tells you. She grades really hard. We were relieved there is no midterm but those 5 - 2 page papers took our lives as she was harsh and expected miracles from two, double spaced pages!

Class: Literature of the Harlem Renaissance in the Twentieth Century to 1960. Overall, easy, easy class. Easy essay essay assignments, easy take home mid-term, easy final. I found a few of the books enjoyable and some were more boring than KCRW's, "Bookworm." The one thing I got really tired of with some of the book selections was that almost all had female protagonists. Not to sound like a misogynist, but there's movies for guys and their are "chick-flicks." A lot of these books are aimed towards a female audience and seem like they would make for an excellent Lifetime original movie. Aside from that, the class was very enjoyable, Streeter knows this subject inside and out. Yes, her lectures are a bit chaotic at times, but if you pay attention you can follow along with ease. Her chaotic method may also be due in part to the subject matter being related to sociology, history, economics, music, and art, just to name a few. But like I said, it's an easy course, with an entertaining, easy, knowledgeable teacher.

Professor Streeter is a nice person and the text we read were great, but she has taken forever to post final grades for the class I had with her last quarter! I am going into the second we of Winter quarter without my grade from her class in the Fall...WHAT THE HECK!!!! That is unprofessional and unfair to students. So if you're looking for a "nice" professor she is cool, but if you want your grade on time....you might want to pick another teacher.

Professor Streeter in my opinion is a mediocre lecturer...sometimes they would be engaging lectures and other times, more often than not, they would be completely off topic and hard to follow. She has a tendency to be all over the place and is quite unorganized. In addition, she has been late to every single class this fall '09 quarter since the first day of school. It used to be about 20 minutes late, one time 40 minutes late, and now it has come down to about 7-10 minutes. As students, we are expected to come on time as well as turn in our assignments on time and you'd think a professional would be able to meet those standards as well. She is a nice person but I feel that she is not one of the best professors on campus. She tends to call on those students she knows. I have never taken a class taught by her before and it took me a good 10 minutes to get noticed and called on even though I sit in the 2nd row from the front. The actual class is interesting and I enjoyed the reading but taking her is under your own discretion!
