She is a great professor. Very willing to help. Tests are easy if you read the book. What you pay is what you gain during this class.

Best CF professor I had. Picks excellent readings and makes artwork interesting too. Tough but fair grader, and has a fun sense of humor.

Great professor. She's very helpful if you go to her office hours (helped me go in the right direction with my essay--went to her for feedback). The texts she chooses are very interesting (she also showed us a couple videos) The close reading done was great. I enjoyed the class and as long as you contribute to discussion you have an A.

She's great. The books she chooses are interesting, the movies are great. As long as you contribute to the class (about anything) you can get an A. Exams are reasonable if you study the books (barely uses stokstad. I loved her. Went to her for help on an essay and she really helped me in my direction.

More literature based than art based (less Stokstad) very entertaining and interesting class, she chooses amazing texts to read and does close analyses. highly recommend for CF2, participate in class and she will love you (and let you rewrite your papers) easy and fair grading can get boring if you don't do any of the work and don't participate

Not an enjoyable class, I took it as part of Global Liberal Studies. Unhelpful, vague, boring. Stay away, go for Tharoor/Martin

While Masri's class can be boring, she tries to make things interesting. Grading wise she is fair, a little tough on papers if you don't give her what she's looking for. She lets you correct major errors anyways. Recommended if you want an easier class with a low work load.

Great professor. Go to her office hours and have her look at your papers before you hand them in for feedback. She likes it when you participate and show enthusiasm. Not to tough with the amount of reading which I thought allowed me to remember/reflect more. She's also very flexible and a nice person.

Very nice and helpful. Not the most interesting class but she tries to mix it up and make it engaging. 2 papers a midterm and a final. All fairly easy. Tougher on papers than tests. Overall a pretty good professor.

Masri is a very kind, lovely lady. She's constantly aware of whether or not her class is interesting for us. She is flexible with class topics and midterms & finals aren't too difficult if you take good notes in class. She doesn't just give out A's, makes sure you work for it, but she's reasonable and not unfair.

Masri's okay. She's very nice, but her class is just very very boring. Some of it is the material, but she does not make it any better. There are better teachers out there. She's not bad.

Prof-what to say? If you're looking for an absolutely easy A, look elsewhere. She won't willingly pass out As. However, she is really fair with her grading and pretty lenient. When she speaks, she expects you to participate and seems to look forward to hearing your thoughts. The best thing about her is that she is not, by any means, condescending.

Pretty average class. Not hard, not easy. She is nice and willing to help you. Midterm/Final are straightforward and pretty easy. I guess you could say she is a tough grader on papers but she does gives As and her grading is definitely reasonable

Heather is amazing. She is so smart and she really knows what she is talking about. You leave the class really understanding what is going on. She can be tough grading papers but she is helpful when you talk to her. Her midterm and final are pretty easy. She can be boring at first but can be really interesting and fun. She does like participation.

Don't Take her if you want a Capable Teacher...I think she might have stumbled off the street into the silver building one day and then decided to come back every week and fumble around in front of students.....she is nice though

extremely knowledgeable tough grader. i had one negative comment on 2nd paper after going to a 40 minute meeting & got a B+. class was pretty boring & dependent on students kissing ass with weird interpretations of the text. texts were boring but its GSP. office hours= awkward but extremely helpful if you came with a decent 1st draft to discuss.

Masri is a nice lady who seems intimidating and kind of boring at first, but after a few classes you'll really start to like her. She's helpful and cares about her students. Her essay topics are tough, but manageable. I'm taking her again next semester.
