FOR EAST ASIAN 60:

Schopen is purely brilliant. As the winner of the MacArthur Fellowship award back in the 80s, he is a certifiable genius. If you appreciate a professor who knows his stuff, then I definitely recommend Professor Schopen.

He's funny, easy going and overall great. I learned more than I ever have in a class, and the format for the midterm and final are extremely generous. He gives you five questions that can be answered in a short answer form. Then, when you show up for the midterm and final he writes two of the five proposed questions he gave you a week before.

You MUST show up for lectures. It is essential for passing the class. The reading is unnecessary if you show up. In his lectures he literally cites the most important quotes from the texts that he perfectly sets up for you to use on the midterm and final.

TAKE THIS CLASS!

Professor Schopen is my favorite professor I've had thus far. He's engaging and it really shows that he does his part to make the class as good as possible. He keeps an open-ended view and gives a broad understanding of the topic. Homework is simple, to the point, and easy to score well on. Midterm and Final are identical- 3 essay questions in class. Essays are fairly straightforward and open book. Extremely glad I took this class- would absolutely look to take something with Schopen again.

Schopen is hilarious and the TA Sung Ha Yun was very helpful, she's the one who actually grades you for everything. Prof taught the lectures and Sung Ha taught discussions, which is where the weekly homework of coming up with a lecture and reading question to turn in came in. There was a lot of reading but I found the majority of them as leaked pdfs. The ones that have to be bought are explanatory and some people didn't buy them, but they were definitely helpful and if you get them from Ackerman you can sell them back.
The midterm and final are 4 questions given in the previous lecture and then you write 3 in the next lecture (75 min) with whatever aides you prepared. So each of those 6 essays are 10% of your grade then 30% discussion questions and 10% participation. This is an extremely easy class but your grade mostly depends on how complete your essay outlines are.
