Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted March 31, 2020 Grade Received: A

Tony is the best!!! He's so supportive of his students and encourages growth over anything else. He's a great grader for essays, always gives totally fair grades that encourage you to try. However, his comments on every single essay are helpful and wonderfully guided and give so much to work off of for the next papers.

The course material is so interesting, he explores different ways history is told in fiction, nonfiction, and theory. This is the best class I have taken at UCLA so far, and it's largely because of Tony. He's so inviting, and I wish I could take another class with him.

Tony is one of my favorite professors I've had in my time at UCLA. Everything we learned in class was so relevant and he was so so empathetic during the circumstances we were in. I couldn't ask for a better professor. The class is structured perfectly, there are weekly readings that were pretty interesting though I struggled with some of them as they were fairly difficult, but Tony allowed us to collaborate and leave comments throughout the readings. We had 3-4 papers in total, but he cancelled the final paper as protests were happening around the country. He is a fair grader and his comments were insightful; I truly feel like I improved every paper.
I wish I could take another class with Tony because he was truly such a compassionate person. Taking writing 2 with him was the best decision I made, if you're considering taking this class, ABSOLUTELY!! You will not be disappointed, as a STEM major I learned so much from this course.
