While his lectures may seem dull to some, I personally found them very interesting and eye opening. Not only were the topics we discussed and readings we read very interesting, Professor Hernandez generously broke down each reading via powerpoints so that we could get the main ideas to help us with our final and midterm. He expanded on the course material and related it to current issues which I very much liked. There were 3 pop quizzes during the quarter, one of which was dropped, a takehome 5 page midterm and final, and 4 2-page response papers. Very doable. He's very fair and you could tell that he actually cares about student learning because he tries to engage all 300 kids in a discussion during lecture.
Chicano 148 has a lot of reading. Some are boring articles and some are more interesting. His class is straight forward. He likes having discussions in class. I like how he shows videos and his essay prompts are pretty fair. I do recommend this class and if you do the reading that should help you for the essays and pop quizzes and you can get an A with that.
