She doesn't go along with the powerpoint that she puts up. It's difficult to follow along. She gets off topic. Her tests are 100 questions & you have 80 minutes to take them. She has a very strong accent and is difficult to understand at times. She lectures for the full 80 minutes and at times it very difficult to stay awake.

The class was interesting and she is a good professor. She knows her stuff, attendance points help, quizzes and exams are from her study guides. Not a hard class, I slacked towards the end of the semester so I didn't get a good score.

Awesome professor! She really enjoys the subject she teaches and seems really invested in it! Tests are off the study guides she hands out. Papers & quizzes are super easy as well! Attn. is not mandatory BUT you get a point each time you attend class which can really add up! Take her!!

She is great! Not too hard when you study! I would recommend her to anyone and I'd take her again if I could. Very clear lectures.

Decent class, decent professor. She can ramble and class can be somewhat boring, but it's not hard. 4 papers, 4 quizzes, and 4 exams. Gives a lot of notice before each is due. The TA's did a lot of the work. Takes attendance before and after class, so attending is important. Has an optional exam review class before every test. Textbook is helpful.

Great and Interesting class. Professor Martinez is a little boring at times and goes off topic occasionally but the slides keep it interesting. The TAs were incredibly awesome and helpful. 4 tests confusing but if you study you will do fine. 4 easy film reaction papers and 4 easy online quizzes. You must buy the books.I definitely recommend her.

This is a professor who truly loves her job. She makes every class interesting and the two TAs she had this semester were also concerned with student learning. I took the Intro class and am looking forward to taking the Culture and Society class in the Spring.

This class is interesting if you like history. She never goes slide to slide while teaching she explains and when she feels that she needed to change the slide then she changes it. Exams questions are bit confusing sometimes too. She is helpful and TA's term paper checking to strict. So write properly else they will grade you bad.

She's pretty awesome, TAs give review sessions, and the tests are straight from her study guides. The class is a bit boring but you have to go in order to get attendance points! Only time I used my book was in the Discussion section with my TA. I enjoyed the class.

Good Professor, kind of hard to understand at times. Class is overall pretty easy. Consist of 4 quarters each with a Exam, Short Paper, and online quiz. Complete all of them and her exam is her study guide word for word almost. EC is given through I clicker and added to your exam grade (very helpful) ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY, very strict on this.

I took intro to Anthro a couple semesters ago, and made it out with an A. My advice to anyone taking her: Read the powerpoints, over and over. She takes her tests straight from them! She's a nice teacher, but her TAs roaming the classroom were a buzzkill. Overall an easy class if you study.

Fantastic professor! But you have to work for your grade. You don't really need the book as her slides are verbatim from the text. Accent is a little thick, but she's always focused on the subject. Exams are essays and id terms, so be prepared to speed write.

I am taking another class taught by Prof. Martinez because I really enjoyed her and her teaching style the first time. If you study her powerpoints you do not have to read the book at all really (it is a good idea though). Her study guides are VERY helpful, so use them! The lectures can get long but if you attend them, you will do great.

she did a good job at keeping the class interesting and even when the TAs for my class taught the class they did a good job. i personally didnt like that the TAs graded the papers because i thought they graded too hard but if you ever have any concerns about your grade go to the TAs office hours and they put up my paper grade by asking me questions

This class is not hard unless you actually study. I wish I would've studied more because I would have actually gotten a better grade than I did. She's a good teacher and she has 4 TA's that also help out with class. Attendance is mandatory so please don't skip because it can really help boost up your grade.

don't need to worry about getting textbook, all the info on tests is on the powerpoint slides online. if you study those, you will pass the tests. has a strong accent but she is organized, and posts notes online so its okay if you miss class. only thing is that she does iclicker attendance and regular quizzes for extra credit points

Not the greatest teacher. Prof Martinez has a very strong accent which makes it very hard to understand her at times. Exams are very difficult, some of the questions are very specific. TA's are not the most helpful and act like prison guards. Miss one of her lectures and you're already super behind. Plus she's not the nicest either.

Best class ever! Martinez is a great teacher. Anthropology is a fun and interesting field. I'll definitively take her again.
