Submit a very simple weekly paragraph, take detailed notes during lectures, connect the poets and their unique writings to one another in your papers, understand the material and you will be fine. Very helpful at office hours and not a tough grader, would recommend for units compared to other classes

I took Iranian 103A and 103B with Professor Ingenito. He is probably one of the most knowledgeable professors in the department. He is extremely lenient and caring. I really think he deserves better reviews. For lectures, he goes over meaning, grammar of the poems. There are some weekly reports which are really easy. The class consisted of two exams which is translation of poem to English or modern Persian. I recommend taking his class.

I took Dr. Ingenito for Iranian 103A, 103B and 150A. He is one of my favorite professors at UCLA. I really enjoyed all the classes I took with him. He is very approachable and he cares about his students. He is so knowledgable and I learned a lot from him . I was really surprised when I read the bad reviews about him and decided to write one. Neither of the classes I took with him were hard and the workload wasn’t heavy at all; the grade distribution says it all. Participation and weekly reports had a great percent of the total grade. Mid term and final of Iranian 150 were take home essays about the readings we were supposed to read through the course and he gives guidlines about how to write them. For midterm and final of Iranian 103 series we had to translate poems to English or modern Persian and it was from poems that we had gone over in the class. We didn’t need to buy any text book and he posts all the files we needed. I RECOMMEND HIS CLASSES TO EVERYONE. Take him and you won’t regret it.

Clearly the person who gave Professor Ingenito a bad review was one of the many people who just talked over him and was not paying attention. This is UCLA don't expect to get an A handed to you by doing nothing.
This class on the other hand was not difficult at all and the professor is extremely lenient and kind, he cares about his students and is passionate about what he teaches. He is not picky at all I always submitted just a few sentences for my weekly online posts and I would get full credit because what I wrote showed that I understood what he said in lecture. All you have to do is listen, just like any other class and you will do fine! NOT HARD AT ALL. Just take him if the subject interests you.
Professor Ingenito is soo knowledgable and has a great teaching style that is soo easy to understand! He lectures in depth about the poems and goes over the meanings, background, and style of the poet. He really cares about his students learning the material and understanding it as well. The class consisted of two papers and a midterm exam, and one weekly online post about your understanding of the lecture and poems (the online post actually helped me big time when it came time to write my papers) all were graded extremely fair! All you have to do is grasp the basic understanding of the poems if he sees you are trying and you aren't just making things up he will give you credit. He is not a hard grader at all, the subject is very fun if it interests you, and he is pretty funny too!
Take his class he is great, I learned a lot about Persian culture and it was actually a GPA booster for me. If I knew how to read and write in Persian I would take all his classes!

Ingenito is a great teacher. My brother and I took him during the fall 2018 for an iranian poetry, it was by far the best class I have taken at UCLA. Anyone who says other wise never took a UCLA class, and I question how they got admitted to the school if you can’t handle his workload. His style of teaching is simple and he always takes his time and does open office hours to you! He’s very chill and and has a good sense of humor. Don’t let the reviews fool you. 11 out of 10

Professor Ingenito is probably one of the most knowledgable professors in the department that I have encountered. His class is super fun and the workload is not too heavy if you dedicate a little bit of time to go over the poems after each lecture. He knows the answer to all your questions! I absolutely enjoyed taking this course and recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the world of literature.

Professor Ingenito is definitely one of the WORST professors I have taken at UCLA. He has clear favorites in the class and acts as if his students are doing well but gives them terrible grade. Too much work for a class like this. He does not want his students to do well and is not a nice guy. I dreaded going to his class and he was such a rude professor. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. You will think you are doing well and you end up with a B. Students would ask him questions and he would reply back in a sarcastic and rude way. Just don't take this class, I regretted it and it ruined my GPA.

I feel like ingenito posted the review below himself because nobody got an A+ in his class.... even people who got A's on everything got flat A's. He plays clear favorites, is rude when people enagage in class materials and is probably one of the most unhelpful teachers Ive had at ucla. He has a g-d complex for sure and thinks he knows everything about Iranian Poetry. Save your GPA. Not worth it and i didnt learn shit

Dont let the grading scale fool you. This professor is nuts. He was unclear, unhelpful and his grading is all off. He refuses to discuss your grades with you in person. He claimed half the class did badly on the final and gave half the class B's. He said he was tired of getting the easy teacher reputation so he did something about it last quarter and screwed everybody over. There are weekly assignments 500 words minimum, in class midterm exam, midterm paper 2500 words, final paper 1500 words. His class was the most boring class I have ever taken and everybody is on their laptops the whole time - literally nobody pays attention. His grading is horrible and he is horrible as a person as well. He does not care about his students and will trick you into thinking youre doing good by giving you good grades on the midterms but will then give you a horrible final grade. DO NOT RECCOMEND!! SAVE YOUR GPA
