All Ratings and Reviews for Elizabeth F Carter
One year later I still have nightmares about having to go to her class. Sucks!!!
Awful, horrible professor. I hated this class so much that it killed my drive to learn in a slow and painful death. Her lectures were suffocating. I felt like I was going partially insane and partially brain dead... and really did not think that it was even possible to be both at the same time. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASSES UNLESS YOU ARE A GRADUATE STUDENT OR LOVE TO SEE YOUR THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE DIE!!!
Her lectures are very well prepeared, however, they are EXTREMELY boring. Essay instructionsa are unclear, very hard on the grading. Try not to take her classes if you can, but if you must take one, make sure you bring a pillow, or something else to entertain yourself with.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... slideshows everyday in lecture that have nothing to do with what she grades you on. Really no need to go to lecture. Just read the book occasionally.
boring in class. hard on grades. assignments that dont make sense.
This professor is probably a good teacher, but she grades hard on essays, which compose most of your grade. The lectures are also very boring and hard to pay attention to sometimes.
She shows slides and puts you to sleep the whole time. Some assignments don't really make sense and you don't know what she expects exactly. She accepts re-writes of papers. Take something else to satisfy GE, NOT this class!
I thought the class was fairly simple and easy to follow in the format. The 3 papers werent that difficult and the reading was appropriate, and the exams werent that hard if you studied. However, the lectures were incredibly boring at times and the powerpoints literally put everyone in the class to sleep. It was embarassing at one point because so many people were asleep and snoring out loud but Prof Carter acts like she doesnt notice. I got a B+ in the class.
Not good. Her teaching methods are hard to follow, as she jumps around from time period to time period without cluing in her students, and her grading methods are very uncertain - turn in a good essay, and see it come back with a C! She doesn't let us in on what she's looking for on tests, essays, or even how much reading you should be doing. On a good note, though, her TA Kerry Muhlstein is AWESOME!!! He won't be a TA anymore, but if you get a chance, take a class that he's teaching as professor!
um ok. so pretty much don't take this class. unless ur extremely desperate for a ge and u need a class to meet unit requirements, DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. the lectures were boring and hard to acquire information from. the ta was a little weird and not very helpful. the essays were pure crap. after evaluation, all u get is a letter grade on ur cover sheet. actually, on one of my essays, i was lucky enough to have the word "strange" scribbled on the side. and of course there was no explanation for it. the midterm/final were ok. just study the list of places/people and u'll be ok. for the tests at least. professor carter should really just stick to going on her archeological trips and AWAY FROM UCLA! oh and if u do decide to take her class, bring a comfy sweater that u can make into a pillow. u'll appreciate it when u fall asleep in every single lecture. but don't worry if u do cause u'll learn just as much as staying awake.
