Although Professor Toyota can be repetitive since she would summarize the assigned readings, she is still a great professor since she would share her stories as a former journalist and emphasize how social science skills are necessary and are still used out there in the vast variety of jobs. The readings she assigned were excellent choices because they were interesting to read. And the book she told to us to buy isn't necessary, but I would buy it since it has some interesting articles to read if you're highly interested in Asian American communities. To supplement the readings, she would show us videos or invite guest speakers.

The grade of the class is usually composed of an in-class essay midterm based on the assigned readings and two assignments that contribute to your final essay. The workload isn't heavy unless you plan to keep up with the readings. Furthermore, if you think this would be an easy solid A, you have to understand the grading requirements of your TA. I should had received a B+ in the class, but I got an A- instead since Professor Toyota promised a grade bump if your TA recognized you for participating in or showing up for discussions.

Big heart. I remember the night in 1985 when she had to report the death of Ricky Nelson on an otherwise happy occasion, New Years evening. She lost her composure and could not hold back her tears through the breaking news. As the credits rolled, they played Rick's "Easy to be Free", a good choice for Rick's swan song.... Thanks for the memories, Trish.

Toyota is a very nice professor. She has a good background in news journalism so she definitely knows what she is talking about. I took her class on "Politics of Race & Media" and it was great. She grades fairly, and is not too hard to get a good grade if you work hard in the class. Although some of the material was a bit dry, it's manageable with someone interested in media. Just do the reading and take the practice questions for her short answers seriously, and there's no reason why you shouldn't get an A.
