Benita is a good professor; however, be prepared, there is A LOT of work in her class. Some of the questions on her tests can be very tricky. Requires a lot of studying and try to ask have her answer all of your questions. Use those answers later when your paper is returned. Stay organized! She grades pretty fairly and is respectful.

If you want to take this class DO NOT take it with her. From the first day forward she speaks Italian, even though no one understands Italian because it's supposed to be a beginners class. Even if you understand Italian you won't be able to understand her because she fumbles and stutters all the time and it's really unclear what she's saying.

I loved Benita Blessing, a lot of students didn't like her just because she was hard to follow at first. Learning a language isn't easy under any circumstances, but she was always available and MORE than willing to help any student she had. Loved her<3

If you're considering taking a class with this psycho- DO NOT! I'm not sure why she's even teaching at Umass when she got released from her last position for legal reasons. Most importantly, she is a terrible teacher! Always late, never organized, more concerned with catching students misusing technology than getting her point across...just dont.

DO NOT TAKE ANY CLASS WITH THIS TEACHER. Seriously the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced. She lectures on NONE of the chapters in the book (which since it's a history text is jammed with superfluous information), she makes you read supplementary novels, one of which was 700 pages, and her tests are almost impossible to study for, AVOID

one of the worst classes i've taken in my life. I feel like I'm back in middle school. She is SO disorganized, talks SO fast (like, incomprehensible) has you read a 700 page book that does not pertain to anything at all in the class. She looks at what you're doing on your computer...she is just completely a mess. AVOID if you want to stay sane.

Claims she's organized, but totally not. She's rude to her TAs bossing them around during lectures. She talks fast and all over the place.

Do not take! Her lectures are completely irrelevant to what you'll be tested on and seem to be thought up on the spot. The readings she assigns are long and rather silly. Discussions were the only tolerable part of this class, I recommend avoiding it.

AVOID. Do not let her teach you anything. She can't form a sentence without saying "um" or "ah" every two seconds. Makes you do response papers every week, her final was the most ridiculous thing I have every seen before, she never taught anything on it. She will make you want to slam your head against a cement wall. GREAT TA's tho
