I absolutely love Professor Dubois. She is so knowledgeable and passionate about what she is teaching. Granted, I had her for M147D (History of Women in the U.S.) which is her specialty, so I can only speak for her with regards to this class. She is like your quirky, hip grandmother who's very frank and says the most hilarious things.
Reading these, I've seen the most common complaints are her lectures. Many of these people are correct: her powerpoints are not very helpful to note taking, because they are mostly images. However, her lecture itself is actually pretty easy to take notes from, as she has a very organized outline in front of her and she doesn't talk very fast. I didn't find her lectures boring in the slightest, but 1) I am interested in Women's History and 2) SHE is super passionate about it, which makes the whole thing much more interesting. This could (potentially) be different in her other courses or if you aren't interested in the subject material at all.
I wrote both of the short papers (10% each) and the midterm essay the morning of, and got an A- on all three. (So if you put in just a little bit more work on them, the A shouldn't be that difficult). The textbook is interesting, and it's not entirely necessary to read every chapter because the lectures are very thorough.
LOVE LOVE LOVE her, super recommend, if you're at all interested in women's issues or history, or need an extra upperdivision that isn't too much work or reading at all, this class is awesome and super rewarding.
