Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted June 17, 2019 Grade Received: A

Took Acabado for Anthro 116S: Southeast Asian Archaeology. The class was pretty straightforward. He provided a practice midterm exam, which was almost exactly the same as the midterm. For our final, we had to write 3 four page essays. This took a bit of work to complete. During the quarter, we had to write weekly precis on the readings. This was pretty time-consuming since some of the articles were difficult to understand. There was also a group project where we presented on some of the weekly readings and led discussions on them. Although this class was a bit of work (mainly due to the weekly precis), I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in this topic or needs to fulfill the Archaeology requirement as an Anthro major! Acabado was a fun professor and was always available to answer student questions/concerns in office hours or over email. He offered extra credit to the class if we made 5 memes about the course material.

I took both his Anthro 8 and Anthro 118 class. Unlike his Anthro 8 class which can be boring, Dr. Acabado's Anthro 118 class -- archaeology of Southeast Asia -- is a more exciting class as he delves into his specialty of the Philippines and Southeast Asia. He seems disinterested when teaching Anthro 8 (he told me this personally). In his upperdiv class, he knows his students well and there's a fun project at the end. If you're a Filipino/SeAsian who wants to learn more about your culture, take Dr. Acabado! Remember that "balut" unites all Southeast Asian cultures.
