History 02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Insightful, considerate, funny. A wonderful complement to Lobell's haughty delivery. Class discussions were fun... will banter back and forth with the class. Can't wait to take her again.

Form-Culture Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Alessandro's excellent - very well versed, especially on phenomenology. I got more out of Form and Culture with her than Arch History because of the subject (dry and retrospective). Do the assignments and you're set. Signed up for round 3 (Arch history 2).

Arch History Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is awsome... extreemly intellegent and knows what she is talking about. Take her book suggestions to heart, you will learn something. She is probably one of the best teachers I have ever had.

Alessandra is a great teacher.Though she might have a thick accent,you can clearly comprehend.She might look mean,but she's friendly.She brings philosophy into the subject,and other sources to give you a round,full understanding.I recommend her over Lobell.Finish your work & study for exams,then you'll do fine!Also participation is a plus in class.

Great professor...knows her stuff and is like a walking source of information.. Goes off topic but it's worth it and all discussions are insightful. You'll definitely learn a lot in this class.

History of Art Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a good grader as long as you do all the work and study hard. You pretty much have to just pay attention in lectures because the seminar won't help you. Although her accent is rough she's a nice woman and easy to talk to.

ARCH 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

accent is difficult at times, doesn't follow the lecture in section. Her focus of architecture history is much more socio/political/trivial than about forms and space.

ArchHistory 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great professor if you like discussion. Will force participation (which I feel is a plus), and doesn't mind if class discussions move off subject (another plus). A very interactive class, even if she can be a bit stuck up (at least during beginning of semester).

Art history Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's very hard to understand sometimes. and sometimes she calls on people and its a little high school like. she doesn't go over what happens in the lecture. she totally changes topics. she's a good grader if you do your work you'll be fine.

former princeton professor. accent is difficult sometimes, takes getting used to. section is hardly helpful in terms of the course, but she brings up interested topics. she knows a lot; take advantage of this in section.
