Quarter: Spring 2019
Grade: B+
June 25, 2019

Horrible class- Mediocre professor who acts like a wannabe chola and her fake woke TAs. I had Dafne as my TA and she is by far the WORST TA EVER. Always late to discussion with no solid excuse and would take forever to reply to emails. I ended up getting a B+ even though we did great in our presentation and would always attend and participate in discussion and did very well on my reflection. Can't forget to mention that it took her 2 weeks to submit grades that she probably gave at random. This class was a mess from start to finish and it's incredible that the TAs and Professor had the audacity to act the way they acted. I agree with the first review- absolutely half ass class all quarter. The professor stopped giving lectures since around week 4 with the excuse to work on our projects and the TAs (at least my terrible TA) admitted she didn't do the readings since like week 2. We never touched the readings and instead would focus on our site experiences, which explains why so many people did bad on their essays since we were practically teaching ourselves. Please avoid this class and take it only if you need it. They took 4 weeks to assign us to our sites and had the audacity to be upset because people couldn't finish our hours. This class is a total fail and they should own up to their mistakes.

I honestly think that this has got to be one of the worst classes in all of the Chicano department, mainly because at how ridiculous the TA and Professor are. Strict graders and extremely lazy with high expectations, yet, they do not invest any time into the class. Professor used the excuse of the presentations to stop teaching lectures after like week 5. TA's are so damn lazy, literally my TA said during discussion that she didn't do the readings herself because she doesn't like reading. This class was a whole entire mess with the site placements and it just went downhill after that.

My favorite professor at UCLA by far!!! She is extremely knowledgeable on the topic and builds her lectures off the power of the community. Readings were all interesting and the workload was very manageable. It was a little unorganized in the beginning of the quarter because we had to assign everyone to their community organizations but that was out of the professor and TA's control. The group presentation and final paper were all super easy. The prompt is handed out at the beginning of the quarter so there is more than enough time. Overall, the professor was amazing. The TA's were very lazy and mentioned they stopped doing the readings since Week 3.
