Amr was a super helpful TA. You get your feedback on written assignments through zoom meetings with your TA as opposed to written notes. I found the meetings to be super helpful and he was very knowledgable on the subject as well as helped clarify the structure of the final paper. About 70% of your final grade is based around the final paper, from writing your thesis statement to an annotated bibliography to your final draft. You won't feel unprepared at all in this class.

I took this class excited to learn about ancient leaders from Dr. Cooney. Having Amr as my teaching assistant made the class absolutely amazing. He would bring in primary resources from Egypt and teach us how to interpret the history of the items. He taught our class hieroglyphics and how they were used in a historical context. Amr made me feel confident about my writing and the complex history of these ancient rulers. He was one of the best teacher assistants I have ever had at UCLA. Would highly recommend having him as a teacher!

I took AN N EA 15W with Dr. Cooney as the professor and Amr Shahat as the TA and I really enjoyed the class (my section was a hybrid with Dr. Cooney's lectures online and my discussion sections with Amr in person). I would definitely recommend taking the course with Amr as the TA. He did a great job of expanding on the course material in discussion + reviewing it with us, and he also tied the material into different areas of history and the present. The final essay for this class sounded overwhelming when they first described it to us, but the course breaks the project down into manageable steps/checkpoints so you don't have to stress as much. Amr was also very available to answer questions via email or during office hours, help us find more resources for our papers, and work with us on our outlines/drafts. I was definitely a little nervous about taking this class because I don't have much of a history background, but I ended up really enjoying it and if you're looking for a solid writing 2 class, I'd definitely recommend this one.

AN N EA 15 the most engaging class I have ever taken as a GE! Amr is a very organized, responsible, and accessible TA. Every week he posts videos to help his students focus on certain aspects of the readings and is always willing to meet students outside of class during office hours. I can tell that he always has his students' best interest at heart as he even allows for students to make individual appointments to check in on their progress.
