Grading:
20% InQuizitive quizzes that have unlimited attempts
20% Midterm Paper (1000-1250 words)
30% Participation (includes weekly 300 word discussion posts and attendance at discussion sections)
30% Final Paper (1500-2000 words)

I liked this class a lot. It was definitely the class I looked forward to going to the most this quarter. I liked how Marino gave a holistic perspective of US History. Lectures were super interesting. Her slides had fewer words on it and had more pictures. My advice would be to be attentive and take a lot of notes so that you can use some of the points she made in lecture for your paper.

This class was essentially just APUSH Periods 4-6. I think anyone who took APUSH in high school and got a 4/5 on the exam will do extremely well in the class because most of the class's content will be review. However, this class also spends more time talking about the history of all groups in the US--stuff most APUSH teachers and classes largely ignore. For people who enjoy US History, I seriously recommend this class. It's an easy GE imo and it was always super interesting. Also, Prof Marino is a great teacher.

I would highly recommend her! She is a great lecturer and her topics are very interesting. For this class, it relied on participation, weekly discussion posts, and two essays. Attendance is required, but the topics and her lecturing style makes the class not dreadful (I actually look foreward to going to class). Go to her office hours as well, she is super helpful when it comes to your essays.

Dr. Marino was super encouraging and loved hearing students share their thoughts. The class was both live and recorded for us to watch. There were six discussion posts/reflections (~30%) that we could complete at any point in the quarter, so if you wanted to do them all in the first few weeks you could. I'd recommend finishing them early, so you can focus on your primary source analysis (~10%), annotated bibliography (~15%), final research project (40%). The workload is very reasonable, just pace yourself.

This class was by far my favorite class I've taken at UCLA. Professor Marino genuinely cares for her students, not just for their success in her class but also as human beings. I love the format of this class, the class is so small so it's not intimidating to speak up and converse with your peers. However, get ready to read in this class--readings are mandatory to succeed in this class. On heavy weeks I was reading 200-250 pages for this class alone. Also, you must participate at least twice each class as participation is a large portion of your grade so if you are shy, that is something to consider. Professor Marino is amazing and I recommend her to anyone!
