She posted all of her lectures online, so there is no real need to actually go to class. She just reads off her slides the entire time anyway. However, she does add some clarifying tidbits that are not on her lecture slides, and also shows some videos near the end of the quarter. The readings in the course reader are not really that necessary either, as she goes over the meanings of the texts in class (and in plain English!). Discussions are mandatory and you are graded on attendance, but that was okay because it usually ended up being a very interesting debate. There are short essays (200-500 words) assigned throughout the quarter, but those are easy as well. The midterm and the final were straightforward (multiple choice and short essays). Overall, a very easy class (I got an A).

I had never gone to her office hours, but I did email her a few times and she is very nice and quick at answering questions.
