honestly i love norberg!!! i took her class (133A) based on the reviews below in Spring 2012 quarter, she was my favorite teacher. you really dont need to do any of the reading, just attend EVERY lecture and take precise notes and you will do great! I ended up with an A- in the course and i never missed one lecture…
Shes a great lecturer, and is VERY clear about what she wants and what she expects from students. Shes aswome during office hours and takes the time to get to know your name. I like her so much that im taking both her 97 course and 187 course in the fall! shes great, best lecturer ive had at UCLA thus far. Nothing is better than an organized teacher and Norberg is nothing short of that! take her you wont regret it!
This review is for the upper division women in European history course.
From the moment Norberg opened her introductory lecture with the meme of Lazy College Senior stating "'The lecture slides will be posted online...' See you fuckers at finals," I knew I was in the right place.
That being said, you actually do have to show up to this class because the ID terms for midterm and final are highlighted in red on the in-lecture slides, not online. She takes attendance. But, coming to class was a great experience because Norberg is an absolutely delightful lecturer and has a very vibrant personality. She often made fun of us lazy seniors and did her best to make sure it didn't get the best of us by constantly warning about deadlines. Also, you will never be confused about the 3 page paper assignment since she discusses key material pertaining to it from the required book almost every lecture.
It's impossible to fall asleep in this class with her funny remarks and engaging lectures, complete with slides. She is very approachable and encourages class participation so although she goes fast in lecture, you will never be in dark about covered material. The online readings are fortunately very short, succinct and interesting so no reason not to read the 6 or so total pages of the typical reading. There is no reason you should not get an A even if you are a procrastinator like I am.
One midterm and final made up of IDs only from the red terms in lecture. They are in in-class essay format. There is a 3 page paper assignment based on a required book. You must use the books assigned in your midterm and final as well.
This class was such an enjoyable experience that I wish I could take every class she teaches! I won't hesitate to take any class by her any time I see it.
Tips for success: Participate a lot in class when she asks questions so she knows your name, show up every lecture (I did), turn in your paper on time, study for the exams at least 2 days beforehand (she even encourages study groups!) Follow what I did and an A is absolutely attainable.
Norberg, if you're reading this, you're awesome and never change.
In my experience, professor Norberg is a great lecturer and I was never really bored in her class (I say this because some history classes are boring). She clearly knows her stuff and she talks alot but I was fine with that because she wouldn't go off on tangents and was always on topic (helps you elaborate on tests).
She is a very STRAIGHT FORWARD professor and there is no reason for you not to earn an A in her course. From day one she tells students exactly what she expects from them and when the big assignments for the class are due. She's ALWAYS reminding you about the essays and the upcoming midterm.
Her notes are available on the course website, I however never went on it to just copy just because I like to write things down better that way and I am more focused. Also you kinda have to attend lecture everyday if you want to do well in the class. (Students in the class tend to get distracted because the notes are available).
Her online readings aren't too long and I personally didn't read them all but I did read both books and you have to because she expects you to have read them.
Overall I like how organized she is and would definitely take a class with her again.
