Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted July 30, 2019 Grade Received: A

Keith is, hands down, one of the best professors I have taken at UCLA! At the beginning of class, we take the time to talk about any announcements, birthdays, events happening, how people are doing before going into the actual work for the day. Personally, I loved the collaborative nature of the class. From the beginning, we split off into groups of three and we have to do attend class, turn in reaction papers, and submit the final together! The group work makes the entire class so much more easier. Furthermore, half the class is spent watching a film and then the second half is to talk about the discussion questions we posed in our reaction paper. With meeting once a week and Keith having to cancel a class to go to a conference, we only met eight times. I highly recommend this class for people who want to get to know more about Pacific Islander studies through a cinema!

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Dec. 19, 2012 Grade Received: N/A

Took his gender and media in the pacific class, great class! I know most film/media classes seem cool but then you end up watching really boring movies but this one actually wasn't so bad. The movies in the latter half of the quarter were definitely a lot more entertaining and easy to analyze.

The readings were definitely not that bad, we had about 2-3 articles a week and they were usually easy reads (except for Judith Butler, that woman is on some other level). He definitely encourages class discussion and participation which I think is a lot easier to do with movies as opposed to discussing readings since people are more likely to not have read.

The work was very manageable, we had a 10 page research paper on a Pacific Islander related film, which was our final but it was not that bad seeing as how he made everybody team up to write it, so really you're only writing about 5 pages if you divide the work up evenly.

Take the 3 question quizzes seriously, they're usually on the readings, show up to class and contribute to the discussion (which should be easy because Keith is a very talkative guy and loves to hear what you have to say), and you should get an A. Keith is a pretty understanding a very approachable guy, so any concerns or trouble you have he'll definitely accomodate you.
