TA 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her class wasn't the easiest, but isn't the hardest. She is a really great professor, she announces what needs to be done way ahead of time which is really helpful. We read quite a number of plays, but all the plays were very interesting to read.Her quizzes are super easy if you read it. None of her work was a big bore. I would recommend her!!

TA 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Readings on a lot of plays and quizzes on them as well. Take home midterm, 1 Research paper, Usher 1 play, see 3 plays, write a critique on a play and to wrap it all up is a final. I got an A on the midterm but her exams are really difficult. Also there's always extra credit.If you're not a theatre major I recommend taking a different GE class.

TA302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is eccentric in a positive way. She is also enthusiastic and passionate about the subject. Shes also very approachable. However, she gives numerous amount of work with 2 quizzes every week, 2 midterms, a final and a 5+ page final assignment. The class is also a lecture only class. It would be nice if she switched it up for once. I give her 3/5

TA303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Nicholson is a very interesting woman and at times a little bizarre, but other than that, she is truly a ball of energy. Although the subject matter can be a little dry at times, she manages to keep things going. Also, she detests cell phones in class, and also people coming in late so watch out for that.

You can tell she loves theatre. She was very nice and helpful. Lot of reading of plays (google is your friend). 15 quizzes about the plays. Some are take home. Have to attend 3 plays, critique a play, 2 mid-terms, 5-7 pg paper and a final to top it off. It was hard but can be doable.

She's clear on her lectures, it's easy to follow and very informative. There is a lot to cover so you have to keep up with the class and her exams are take-home, very fair but quit lengthy. Top the semester off with a term paper, nothing can't be accomplish. She's good, take her!

Christine explains lots of information in a way that is really easy to follow, and you can tell she loves theatre and really knows her stuff very well. The only homework was 1 paper, 1 critique, some take-home quizzes, and a lot of reading. But the plays we read were all very good and a lot of the history was interesting, too.
