Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A
Jan. 2, 2020

Kaufmann is a really good lecturer who clearly lays out what she will be testing on and what she will be looking for students to take away from the class. Only problem is that some of the rhetoric she uses can be problematic at times, particularly for POCs and immigrants, but besides that I would recommend the class!

Kaufmann is fantastic - one my favorites at UCLA. Genuinely cares about her students and is a great lecturer.

The class is straightforward (weekly reading quizzes, exams with no surprises, and one paper that you can get feedback on before final submission). Frankly speaking, the class isn't too difficult: but it's very interesting and engaging, even if you don't particularly care for the topic.

Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A-

This class gives an introduction to how US federal policy - both before and after the passage of the Civil Rights Act - engineered, permitted, and maintained residential segregation. It also explained the mechanisms by which segregation intensifies and perpetuates economic and social inequalities. It felt like information that *should* be common knowledge, but might not be.

Professor Kaufmann's teaching style was engaging and very accessible. Grading was straightforward, generous, and all expectations were crystal clear -- there was no busywork and to do well on exams you had to understand the main points covered, as emphasized by her lectures, rather than memorize many unimportant details. Because Professor Kaufmann was friendly and supportive, students shared their personal experiences, which made the class even more interesting and thought-provoking.
