Quarter Taken: Spring 2016 Submitted June 4, 2016 Grade Received: A

Professor Hirabayashi is truly an interesting professor. I didn't know what to expect when I enrolled in this class, but I really enjoyed it in the end! I learned more about what being an Asian American entails, and the readings were engaging. There is no required textbook for this class, and the professor provides all the material the students need on CCLE. The TAs Juliet and Josephine were wonderful and very kind! Thank you to both TAs! They are willing to help students with any questions we have, and I can tell that they are passionate about what they teach us. Although the professor does not use slides during lecture nor records his lectures, you should be able to retrieve all the information you need by just attending lecture and listening, reading the required text, and participating in discussion section. I would recommend this class to other UCLA students !

This class is really interesting!
Professor Hirabayashi is a great lecturer, I really enjoyed listening to the way many concepts of this class have applied to his own life. The class lacks of PP so if you are the kind of person that needs to have a PP to take notes, I suggest not to take this class. You don't have a specific book but rather weekly articles to read (THEIR CONTENT IS IMPORTANT FOR BOTH THE MIDTERM AND FINAL!)

You also have to write 2 papers in topics related to the course (don't worry, they are not research papers and are fairly easy to write after doing some minor research)
You also have to do a group presentation during discussion section. (EASY AS WELL)

Though this class doesn't offer extra credit, you ready don't need it. If you pay attention during class, go to section, read the articles and revise the study guide you should be fine!

As an Asian American myself this class is really interesting, it brings awareness of certain topics that are overlooked in the As American community.

My final grade: A

I think this class will be offered again during Spring 2016! Highly recommended!!
