All Ratings and Reviews for Keith Camacho
Keith is the best professor ever! I went on his guam summer travel study and he is the funniest person I ever met. He feels more like an uncle than a professor and he does a lot to cultivate relationships with his students. All of his lectures are so interesting and engaging and he likes to draw on his own personal experiences. I wish I could take every single class with him!!!! He is AMAZING!!
I took this class W19, saw it had no reviews and I have to do Keith justice. He's an amazing professor. SO engaging. He took time every single lecture to go around and have people share how their week was going, make any announcements, etc. It was such a supportive academic environment and I really enjoyed going to class and discussion.
From what I can recall:
Participation (in discussion, don't remember how much it was worth)
3 essays (2/3pg, 5/6 pg, and final 12 pg research paper)
Each paper is graded 20% draft and 80% final (although draft is graded on P/NP basis)
Final (multiple choice + essays)
I had Paul Mendoza as my TA. A true king. He was so real, down to earth, and inspired me to become a better writer. I feel like I learned a lot from this class, not only about Asian American history, but about intersectionality and how a lot of these issues are presenting themselves in our lives today. It was a refreshing course, filled with honesty and built-in support. I look forward to taking a class with him again!
I took the fiat lux called indigenous art, service, & justice. I don't think the seminar subjects stay the same, but if Camacho is teaching a fiat lux and you're considering it, TAKE IT!! He's so funny and chill and just so welcoming and makes you feel comfortable, which is saying something because I took the class online. The workload for my class involved biweekly readings + one page reflections, a group presentation, and an (pretty informal) essay at the end of the quarter. It was definitely more work than my previous fiat lux but it was so worth it, the conversations I had in this class never missed and the guest speakers were phenomenal. If you have a chance to take a class with Camacho 10/10 recommend.
