Quarter Taken: Fall 2019 Submitted Jan. 7, 2020 Grade Received: A+

Very easy class. I enjoyed learning about Brazil a lot. Most of the classes were run as discussions based on the readings or movies, so a good chunk of the time is talking with your fellow classmates rather than being lectured. There are only a few small writing assignments and one group project and they are all super easy, if not high school-easy, graded very easy. Professor Bivona is very knowledgeable and understanding to the student perspective, and wants you to get an A as long as you show you're engaged. If I had any complaints, it's that there were a LOT of movies to watch and I personally had a hard time keeping up.

This is the class to take if you are looking for something stress-free and an interesting, new topic to learn. Professor Bivona gives you every chance on Earth to get an A+ in her class. Most of the class is reading articles, chapters of a book, and watching films.

Professor Bivona will let you know when a quiz is coming and from what material.

There are a few papers which range from a page to 3 pages in length, all very straight forward.

Participation is easy, just raise your hand and answer a question every now and again.

The group presentations are interesting and everyone must do one. They are pretty easy and should only take a 2-3 hours of group work to complete.
