    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class, because it is very confusing. The professor has favorites and contradicts herself often. The professor does not specify what she wants, and when questions are asked she replies with smart answers, yet she announces, "there are no dumb questions."

    Course highlights:

    The highlights I did have of this course was learning more about the Hispanic Culture and Heritage and Empowerment of Women.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are enrolled in this course it is best to figure out what the professor enjoys. From there on you can base your papers and assignments on things you know she would favor in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'm not a fan of the one grade all semester type class. With this class yes you did 7 essays which she reviewed and critiqued. But the grade all came from the 4 essay correction portfolio/semester final. To me this left little room for improving your grades because we never knew what grade stance we were at. She had a great personality and knowledge base but to practice and see where it was we were going wrong was lacking. Even with the reviews she gave on the weekly essays I didn't see a big amount of correction advice and not knowing where I stood on her grading principles.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the best teaching the professor did give was through her articulated powerpoints. She went through these PowerPoints paying great attention to the details they had to offer. With these I learned a lot about writing such as, how to carefully organize the materials to be outlined. The professor paid extreme amount of attention to detail on how to write and format a works cited page. She gave us plenty of materials to utilize in this section as well as thoroughly explaining why each part was necessary. Over all her teachings were above average.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in with an open mind to be creative. Also prepare to learn how to use current event and sensitive subject material to wrote your papers. Keep yourself up to date on the assignments that are given because late work is not tolerated. Keep up on all the readings she gives because you will be expected to write little shorts about them. Also these readings she assignes are a vital part of what you will be writing about.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    show up to class and turn in your assignments on time.
