I loved Professor Frankel's class so much! I He assigns a 5 page essay (Essay 1) and gives you plenty of opportunities to meet with him to help improve your essay/writing. He also assigns an 8 page paper (Essay 2) about basically anything you want, and gave you until the end of the quarter to turn it in. However, the catch with this is that IF you decide to turn it in at the end of the quarter, you can choose to combine the workload from Essay 3 (6 pages) into Essay 2. In other words, instead of writing two essays ,(Essay 2, 8 pages and Essay 3, 6 pages) you can completely skip writing Essay 3 and make your Essay 2 a 14 page paper. I personally chose to do the 14 page paper, as I found it much easier to focus on one topic, instead of having to write to shorter essays on different topics. Again, he's very sweet and flexible with your schedule and will help you find time to meet with him to improve your writing and look over your essays.

Throughout the quarter, he assigns small assignments (reading an article and writing a small response, sentence structure exercises, watching videos, etc.). This is basically just to help you engage in the conversation in class, and only counts for a small percentage of your grade. One assignment was actually to watch the movie Pretty Woman, which I thought was pretty cool, considering I had never seen the movie. There is also a Vocabulary Quiz at the end of the quarter, but he was so sweet that the day of the vocabulary quiz, he gave us a very cool surprise...

He is very sweet and I would really recommend taking this class! You really just need to focus on the essays, since those counts for most of your grade! Also, our TA was so nice! She would always bring us candy! Overall, this class is the best class I've taken so far.

Professor Frankel is a great professor and also a great person. Taking professor Frankel's class is different than many other classes because of the warm atmosphere. It's too bad I won't be able to take another class taught by Frankel due to me not needing any more English classes. He grades fair, very fair. He's organized. He's humorous. He's smooth too. I will continue to stay in touch with professor Frankel after UCLA.

He is the best professor I've ever met at ucla. It is a huge pleasure to talk to such a knowledgeable and wise man. The TA that we had, Will, is also an amazing person. Definitely recommend his class!
