UGC 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

TAKE THIS COURSE. Your grade is made up of 2 easy papers and 2 tests. Amount of use of the textbook depends on the TA you get for recitation. I had the easiest TA and didn't use the second book at all, just opened the main textbook here and there to catch up on necessary info. Tests focus on in class info, and the review pages she super helpful.

She's a really nice professor and sometimes even brings her dog to class. She went to Yale so she really knows her stuff, and she is extremely passionate about it. Her lectures are mandatory because she has movie quizzes, but you learn a lot from the movies. She is great just make sure you read the book and pay attention and its easy A!

Wasn't a fan. If you take her make sure to not be in her recitation section, makes everything 10x harder. All around nice woman though

Shes the best professor you can get for World Civilization. Her lectures are made simple enough that a glance while studying is enough to get a decent grade.

Not bad just really boring.She talks about such a broad period of time always skipping around which made it difficult sometimes. Gives a movie quiz randomly thats worth 10% so don't skip class. Her tests are 12 mc 12 short answer and one essay chosen by your TA. Fairly easy if you read the book and study her review sheet. I got an A.

This class is pretty easy. You watch a ton of videos in it and all her quizzes are video quizzes. As long as you attend lectures and somewhat pay attention then the midterm and final should be no problem.

Very boring class. She reads powerpoints and you watch a lot of videos as attendance quizzes. She is a huge feminist and focuses on women a lot. She also says 'k' a ton. Overall, easy class, though.

She's a very nice lady, just try not to get her for your recitation, she assigns loads of work to them. She's very intelligent and passionate about the subject. Shows video clips often. Assigns easy film quizzes. Just show up to class everyday and you'll be fine, no need for textbook readings. Easy A.

She is a very easy teacher to get an A in. There are a lot of videos that you watch (one about every day) and the tests are fairly easy. I barely read the book and got an A in the class. Make sure you go to class because she gives a video quiz that can help your grade.

This course was pretty good. Theresa really made the lectures interesting and we watched a lot of videos which keep your interest. I never did any of the readings and still got an A. The two exams and two response papers make up your grade. Attendance is necessary becausee she gives out lots of quizzes that add up, but overall farely easy course

Really easy professor. Gives in-class "quizes" that are require you to fill out definitions while you watch a flim. 2 tests that are SUPER easy you just need to study her study guide. 2 papers that only have to be 3-5 pages and is really really easy. Shes very approachable and a nice person to talk to.

Thank god for my TA, Paul McCutcheon. Im not one of those people that hates school and thinks that every teacher is an idiot- but this one is. The way she says her words gives the impression that she thinks she knows more than everyone on the earth. She should go back to canada and hunt caribou.
