Jour-Ua 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Vivien is a fun person, but as a teacher she is vague and gives confusing and unhelpful feedback. She goes on tangents, her class is unstructured, and she often sneakily left class during "multimedia workshops" she delegated to a grad student. Her grading is arbitrary and unexplained. Take a different professor for the beat.

This is a great class and a great teacher. As a person-she's wonderful, as a teacher-she's so helpful. I learned so much about journalism, about my role as a journalist, and how to write well and to the point. I definitely recommend her!

I loved this class. Orbach-Smith is really helpful and always gives you a chance to rewrite for a better grade. You actually learn how to write well in this class. You have to do work and it is what a true skills course should be. She is very friendly, funny and open. She cares about her students and you can ask her anything.
