Spring 2022 - She doesn't grade any of your writing and gives you feedback on 2/10 writing pieces. I just don't understand the point of a writing instructor who barely provides feedback, doesn't grade your assignments, and just inputs a final grade. Still don't know what I got in any of my assignments...
Fall 2022 - I'll split this review into two parts the class and the professor: The class: The class has a lot of work, she gives a lot of work that can sometimes be too much and feel unnecessary. Participation matters and your final is a final portfolio of your essays written throughout the class. There are also presentations and attendance is taken. The Professor: Professor Dickey is a wonderful professor. She is very funny and is very forgiving/understanding with late work and sometimes deadlines. Her lectures can give you the inspiration to write essays and her feedback for your essays are very helpful. I really do not like English but Professor Dickey made the class fun and interesting.
Winter 2020 - Professor Dickey truly cares about her students. From the engaging projects, papers, and informative group discussions, Professor Dickey has truly made me a confident and better writer. The class is discussion based which helped me develop a sense of critically analyzing a film’s underlying message in regard to race and racial identity. She strives to inspire and develop powerful writers. Like any other class at UCLA, there is a good amount of work but at the end of the day it is worth it, what you put in is the grade you will receive so make sure to participate, do the readings and watch the movies. I highly recommend this class for anyone trying to fulfill their diversity requirement or writing 2!
