I feel like this class was the perfect class for someone who doesn't care about their degree. It's an easy A- class, which I actually enjoyed because I need to graduate in three years. I think a lot of people that are going here for their education would be really triggered with this class, which I can understand. The in-class assignments were weird and busy work. Most of them were just to fill time. There was this one time week eight that we were just sent outside in groups to do a worksheet that we weren't supposed to complete, so a lot of people got triggered but it was just to fill time. Participation is required for this class sadly. You do have to show up to TA sections, which were the most stimulating times, and you do have to show up to lecture to fill out an answer about that week's reading in your bluebook. It's just for attendance. What's annoying is that you do kinda have to do the readings to complete the quizzes, which felt very randomized. Some questions were too easy while others were extremely obscure and hard. I scored poorly on the quizzes but I got a 98 on the final essay. It helps to be a good writer throughout this series. They don't really help improve your writing, but they do help you understand broad concepts so you can write about them. There are two essays in this class, one is the midterm and one is the final. They are both worth a lot, but they also have the same topic. So chose you're topic early and get researching. This is how the other parts in the series work as well. I chose my play in week 3 for 101B and wrote the final essay week 6, so I was chilling throughout the rest of the quarter thank goodness. Knowing you theater majors, you're probably taking 22 units, so make sure the 101 series isn't as pesky as it can become over time. The final essay was to recreate a theatrical performance or ritual from that time period. So for example, you could write about the process of scandinavian burials or you could write about a Shakespeare play as if you were there. You would have to get sources from the time. You need three primary sources and like 7 secondary sources. I may have exaggerated those numbers, but I remember it being a lot. I actually think that was the amount. It was a real research paper. It was the most free-form out of all the essays you'll write in the series, so take it for granted. Anyways, this class was boring. Some of the slides had one photo on them with no context lol. There were a lot of inside jokes that came from this class, so try to find some enjoyment in it even if it may not come from learning.

Extremely easy class. Didn't read any of the plays for the final and still got a 49/50. Class can be borings at times but overall it's good and fun.
