Lectures were dry and boring. Yep, I said it. He never states an "opinion" and is very ambivalent as to what his point is. It was only until two-third into the course that I had an epiphany in my dorm as to what the hell it was that he was trying to say. I was like a whatever class,.... meh.. I got a good grade and I didn't do all the readings... would I take him again? Probably not.

I chose this class with Professor Macias because I needed Chicano 101 for the [email protected] Minor. I was scared of him in the beginning but I guess he has a resting serious face. Disadvantages of Macias: He is very vocal (So he rarely uses Slides and lots of us had to bring laptops to type everything he says), expensive textbooks (But I learned sooo much from the readings), The TA's were confused by his instructions, he assigns lots of readings and even wanted us to do "Matrices" for them but the TA's stopped assigning them cause they were a waste of time. I'm a first year and I got an A! I honestly think it was because my TA graded our assignments nicely lol. In the first week of Discussion, my TA said "Professor Abrego is teaching this class in the Fall so maybe drop this class now if you don't like it because Macias asks for a lot." That made me regret taking the class but honestly the readings were the only hardest part of the class. He gives 2 midterms and a final (But Macias calls them all midterms) and a Book Review. They were take-home and a bit hard cause you have the find the info from the readings. I took advantage of AAP's PLFs. That really helped me get an A. If you have to take this class with Macias because of your schedule then just take it because it is a nice experience.
