The comment here about her "f***ing up the grading scale" and causing everybody's grades to be lower is false. Complete nonsense. The grades ended up being within the range that the Professor wanted them to be in, and the TA over-shared about the behind-the-scenes process, confusing some students, apparently. Amazing class to take for students interested in the history of the Reconstruction Era or of the history of the treatment of Black Americans in US History generally.

Prof Orren has very unstructured lectures (over zoom) and she doesn't use powerpoint slides or record the class. Her lectures are literally her just trying to figure out technology or reading off a textbook we aren't required to read or yelling at our TA. The readings are tedious and she doesn't connect them well to lecture materials. She gets frustrated with students for asking questions, and when you do, she doesn't answer them. She didn't provide reasonable accommodations for finals and fucked up the grading scale so that the class average dropped. The only reason I got a decent grade was because of the TA. A shame considering how relevant this course COULD BE in our current political and social climate.
She literally lives up to her name. take at your own risk lol
