I took this class with no interest in the course whatsoever. It was the only upper division course that was open and worked with my schedule during registration. This course is cross listed as Gender Studies and Chicano Studies BUT this course is also heavy in Political Science. I ended up enjoying the course and do not regret taking it! His lectures are engaging and interesting but there is a lot of terminology to understand in this course. He allows you to choose different formats for assignments, I chose to write 3 papers. He graded fairly but the class isn't an easy A per se. The readings (PDF's on CCLE) are very heavy (long) and most of the readings I did not understand what I read, it felt like a lot of political science technical jargon. I chose to write my papers on the readings that I actually understood and that were more straightforward, but I spent a considerable amount of time re-reading and outlining. He randomly has us complete in class assignments that you turn in with groups so it's essential to show up to class and participate.
