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!

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.

I took 3 STEM classes along with this class winter quarter. And honestly this class took MOST of my time. She is a great professor and you learn a lot of stuff about diversity which is very interesting. However, the workload is just INSANE. She makes you watch upwards to two movies and read passages in a span of two days. Also, your final grade is basically just one essay because you revise it and submit the final draft in your portfolio. Overall, I would seriously look into other professors because the workload is just too much and not worth it especially for an ENGCOMP3 class.

Some people would say that this class had a lot of work, and it did but it was always "fun" and very personal so in the end it isn't really as much as it looks like in my opinion. The topics and movies we watched were interesting. I really liked the professor, she was always understanding. The one thing that I kind of hated however was that we didn't get a single grade until our final one (just one for the entire quarter, no individual ones). It makes it kind of hard to figure out if you need to put in more work during the quarter and because she doesn't give her email, you have no way of contacting her if you want more details about your grade.

This class was half online and half in person. As long as you show up, participate, and turn in everything on time you will be totally fine. Dickey is super nice and tries to personally connect with the class which is great.

As someone who genuinely hates writing, this class was not terrible at all. All of the assignments are very clear and quite easy to grasp. And besides the class itself, Professor Dickey is also very nice! I recommend this class if you're looking to easily fulfill your writing requirement.

Professor Dickey is one of the best professors and person I have ever met. Classes always started off with checking in and asking how everyone's day was. Then, we went into a discussion about the movie, article, essay, or whatever there was. I really enjoyed the class, but the workload is insane. Out of all 4 of the classes I took that quarter, I was up so many nights trying to finish over 10 essays. A lot of the assignments are due back to back so I was constantly stressed over the next essay. Luckily, the prompts and assignments that Prof assigns are quite interesting and engaging, so I recommend.

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...

Love this professor. I'm not a writing major but this class makes me consider it. She enphasize participation and group projects. Workload is more than average, but worth it. She gives clear instruction and feedback so you can improve. It's an easy A if you talk to her.

I enjoyed taking this class, it has been one of my favorite classes thus far. This class is not difficult at all, the professor is really helpful and guides you step by step. Prof. Dickey will engage throughout the class discussions There's not many assignments except for article readings which are to be read before class, Journal entries based on class discussions/articles, a podcast group project and one portfolio in which you edit one of the 2 essays you write, along with small 1-2pg reflections. Make sure you read the articles/skim, because they will be discussed, and you are graded for participation. Also, most of the class will be just classmates and prof, having a discussion on the articles.
