This class honestly made me start smoking again

I took Professor Lee's Chinese Garden's course. The breakdown of the class was really simple: 2 in class quizzes (5% each), two essays (25%) each, and an in-class final OR 4-8 page research paper (40%).

Her class really isn't that hard. Everything she goes over can be learned in the readings without going to class. But I found if you just skimmed the reading and went to class, you'd learn all she wanted to you. The two quizzes were supposed to 'keep us on track' for our readings, but they were done by like the 4th week of the quarter. She is a pretty harsh grader when it comes to the essays, since she's writing her book and all, but she's SUPER helpful if you do go talk to her about the essay, and she'll even read you're draft and give you advice on it.

The subject wasn't too bad, especially since she says she'd never taught it in an actual class before.

This is the second time I've taken her, and I would definitely take her again. She may be a big hard to follow in lecture since she's a bit all over the place and sometimes switches to Chinese, but.. I really enjoyed her.

Although Professor Lee isn't the greatest lecturer, she is very passionate about Chinese art, which makes the class worthwhile. He TA's are pretty easy graders and generous when it comes to the essays. They let us rewrite one to improve our grade. Options for essay questions for tests are given beforehand so you can prepare. Slide IDs are easy points. I'm taking another one of her courses. She might be a bit hard to understand sometimes, but the overall class is good.

Bright lady, but she's extremely difficult to understand.

I am an art history major and if I could go back in time, I would not have registered for this class. Big mistake. Lee is a very intelligent woman, but lectures poorly. You can barely see her or hear her from behind the podium. Everyone slept through her lectures or hardly attended them. She posts the notes online, and provides a study guide for the final. I personally benefited more from the discussion sections than her lectures. You will enjoy Lee's class so much more through the discussion section taught by the TAs. Don't miss them! They really clarify everything.

HORRIBLE. Don't take her lectures. It will hurt more than it will help. She spends the first, like, fifteen minutes telling you what she is going to talk about and then she finally starts. Once she starts, she always ends up saying (at least once every lecture): "But we'll talk about that later" (as if anyone is capable of keeping track of her travelling thoughts). Nothing personal against her, but, her lectures are very ineffective. And her voice is weak and quiet- even with the microphone. She does mumble a lot, and it is impossible to stay awake when she seems to be in her own world throwing out her ideas about any and everything, unaware that a class is trying to learn from her.

oh god! this class was hard to stay awake in. i have to say it was one of the worst classes i have ever taken. it made think that every class at ucla was bad. be sure to get a good TA's. TA's do everything (ie. grading).

When she leactures are goes off many tangents, and she ends are sentences by mumbling. Hard to follow.

The only way to getting a good grade in this class is to go to her office hours more, and talk to her more about the subject. The subject is interesting. Only short papers, and midterm and final.

I recommend not taking this class!!! It is not an easy class or GE. People tend to fall asleep while the professor continues talking about art. I dont recommend taking Evan, not a very good TA. The other TAs seemed okay. Don't take it! I agree with the other posts.. AH 56B
