I took AAS10. One of the hardest classes ever. The TA's grade super hard and are in complete and total control of your grade. In addition,they are super slow at returning back your quizzes and papers. Going into the final, I had NO IDEA where I was standing in the class because I hadn't received two big things back! Camacho reads off a paper EVERY lecture and it is VERY hard to get everything he says. There are almost no powerpoint slides and when he reads, he's not very clear either. DO NOT TAKE.

I'm sorry I can't remember the course number-it was in 2010 when I had Keith's class. However, I couldn't believe these reviews so I had to write on of my own. Keith was absolutely one of the most interesting professors I had at UCLA. He is very passionate about the subjects he teaches and maybve the two students who posted here could care less about the subject. I had two classes with Keith-both of which were so interesting and fun. Everyone in the class was encouraged to speak up, ask questions, and really think about what it means to be a Pacific Islander. He is very passionate about the subject of empire and colonialism in the pacific and doesn't mince words about how he feels. His lectures are very fact filled and you have to be paying attention-there is no goofing off or sleeping in his lectures or you will suffer on the exams. His was always available at office hours for help and I was bummed out when he left for a year of research because I wanted to continue taking his classes. He is back now-but I have graduated already. Maybe these two students are used to just basically showing up to a class and sleeping through the lecture-but you can't do that in Keiths classes-I would tell anyone interested in AAS or PI studies that his class is a must take!

Took his gender and media in the pacific class, great class! I know most film/media classes seem cool but then you end up watching really boring movies but this one actually wasn't so bad. The movies in the latter half of the quarter were definitely a lot more entertaining and easy to analyze.

The readings were definitely not that bad, we had about 2-3 articles a week and they were usually easy reads (except for Judith Butler, that woman is on some other level). He definitely encourages class discussion and participation which I think is a lot easier to do with movies as opposed to discussing readings since people are more likely to not have read.

The work was very manageable, we had a 10 page research paper on a Pacific Islander related film, which was our final but it was not that bad seeing as how he made everybody team up to write it, so really you're only writing about 5 pages if you divide the work up evenly.

Take the 3 question quizzes seriously, they're usually on the readings, show up to class and contribute to the discussion (which should be easy because Keith is a very talkative guy and loves to hear what you have to say), and you should get an A. Keith is a pretty understanding a very approachable guy, so any concerns or trouble you have he'll definitely accomodate you.
