Spring 2018 - The key to happiness is found in not taking this class. First of all her lectures are all over the place and her slides are some of the most unhelpful I've ever stumbled upon. Going to class is mandatory since she has an unidentified number of pop quizzes throughout the quarter. T.As are TOUGH graders too, they don't give you that long to address a question but expect you to hit EVERY criterion PERFECTLY. I had a terrible time and I guarantee if you take it, you will too. It doesn't even matter whether what we read was interesting or not because she is so all over the place it is really not worth it. Save yourself the stress and save your GPA by not enrolling in this class.
Winter 2019 - Lectures can be less than exciting, but the professor is kind and the materials in these course are free and posted online. Some of the readings can be enjoyable, and the course becomes much more interesting in the final week when comparisons are drawn between Athenian Democracy and America's democratic republic. For finals, review readings and pick four out of five quotes for which to provide textual, rhetorical, and historical analysis. It was a doable and rewarding course--I would take this class again.
