The required readings were very engaging and interesting. Participation matters in this class so be sure to do the readings and be aware of all information.
She is a tough grader. Simple reading responses (mainly essays on your opinion) she grades for content. Also, for her essays she grades VERY hard. The class average for our first essay was a "C" and she was proud of that. Personally, I have very high standards so I was a bit upset when she stated that. To do well on essays, I highly recommend to get additional support. Go to the Undergraduate Writing Center or Writing Success Program, book an appointment and be sure to carefully edit your essay before you turn it in. She is very picky about formatting, grammar and just everything. In the beginning of the quarter, she did signs of favoritism which made me feel uncomfortable however as the quarter was ending, I just got over it. Also, she doesn't really respond to emails BUT
She is a good professor and passionate because she supports you by having workshops (grammar, MLA format, word choice, passive voice) and mandatory office hours.

Overall, I found this class to be boring but it was really easy. Professor S is super nice and really aims to connects with students. Discussions were very interesting every class period and involved a lot of personal reflection. Workload was decent and graded super easily; basically if you do it, you'll get 100. You create 2 blogs, 1 personal, 1 group, a few written responses, 1 project and final is an e-portfolio. Professor S was great but this class was boring. Easy A though and you meet some really great people.

I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning about digital media and applying it professionally. I'm an English major and tend to be more introverted, but this class really brought out my creative side, teaching me how to create blogs, websites and stay connected with the news while listening to the assigned Daily podcasts. The class would consist of lectures over the readings (in-person), 2 group presentations (zoom), and one assigned reading-day leader who would discuss the chapter we read the night before (in-person). Class discussions of cancel culture, student activism, and opinions on controversial podcast episodes were very engaging. This class was my favorite of all my courses, and although it contained the most work with the project-based assignments and two-page responses, all the topics were relevant and fascinating to learn more in-depth about. Honestly, the projects felt more like fun than homework. She grades very fairly, and her feedback is always lovely and thorough. Professor S. just wants everyone to participate and express their interpretations of the topics creatively. Bottom line: THIS CLASS IS AMAZING!!! If you want a break from reading and writing essays or a chance to discover something new and helpful, take this course.
