Professor Givvin is such a gem. This class turned out to be one of the most interesting classes I've taken so far at UCLA. Each day in class, you review 1-2 articles of studies or literature reviews about educational topics. Some of the ones I remember off the top of my head are if professors providing powerpoints affects students' exam performance and how gender stereotypes affect working memory capacity. Professor Givvin makes each study manageable to understand and makes sure everyone's questions are answered. Her dog Jake is super cute too.

Class is 15% participation, 25% each for two midterms, and 35% final. Her tests made sure you understood the studies she went over, but there were no trick questions and she was always willing to clarify question during exams if you were confused. If you take this class, you will definitely take away lots of valuable information! It's (by far) been my favorite psych class.

I took Psych 133 F with professor Givvin and she is very nice professor. You will see what I mean during quizzes. The articles are not too hard to read and if you pay attention to mostly the lecture you should be fine. I mostly skimmed the discussion section of each article before class and reviewed the power points. I got an A- but if I worked a little harder I could have gotten an A. If you can I highly suggest you take this class before it fills up. Its easy and you learn a lot.
