Fall 2019 - Professor Gaye is so inspiring and an amazing leader at UCLA. She doesn't just care about her students regurgitating information onto a test, she wants them to absorb the info and actually apply it to real life scenarios. I loved her lectures and the discussion section is very hands on with a group project that you visit an organization and make a difference in their social media usage. There are a few key word quizzes in this class but they are no big deal. Between guest speakers, the easy workload, and the real life wisdom learned in this class this is an awesome option.
Spring 2020 - this class was amazing, professor johnson is the sweetest and most understanding professor i've had at my entire time at UCLA, i wish every professor was like her! given, i did have her during the first quarter we went online so she was much more lenient, BUT here work was still there. she will do her best to accommodate any concerns you have, it is very evident she cares about her students. her content is extremely interesting because she uses direct sources for numerous topics, there is SOOO much more to resistance than what we were taught! she educates on numerous forms that most have not heard of and I'm so grateful to her for introducing me to those who have gone unheard but whose work have been critical. i really enjoyed this class!
Winter 2017 - I had Prof. Johnson for Chicano 10B, and it was my favorite class that quarter! She is such an engaging lecturer I was able to pay attention for the whole 2 hour class. She is also very passionate about the material which shows in her teaching. The exams are not difficult, and she gives you a straightforward study guide that is actually like the test. She definitely wants to see her students succeed. Would take another class with her for sure. Readings were dense but very interesting.
