Professor Lavagnino is kind, patient, and supportive. I’m so thankful that I had her for my professor, I wish she was teaching Italian 2 next quarter. There are three quizzes and a final. She gives practice tests for each quiz and the final. The practice tests include questions that end up being on the quizzes and final so they are super helpful. She also assigns 3 short compositions. With the compositions, you turn in a first draft, then she makes corrections, and then you turn in the final draft with the corrections. She averages those scores (and your final draft should be 100% since it includes her corrections) for your final score. The compositions can also help you when you take the quizzes since the short essay portion asks a similar question to topic of your composition. The work and pace are very manageable. All in all, I give this class a solid 10/10.

Lavagnino is such a fun and engaging professor, I also took her for Italian 42B. She makes sure you understand the work unlike most professors and takes the time to know her students. She also grades pretty lightly.

Professor Lavagnino is the bomb. Took 42B with her winter quarter (class isn't listed though ) and it was such an easy class- great for a GE and also pretty interesting. You are basically guaranteed an A if you do the work.

I took 42B with her but it isn't listed. EASIEST CLASS EVER. Good for a G.E and your GPA. The homework is a little annoying but doable. The midterm was fill in the blanks, and the final was that plus short answers.
