I absolutely loved my class with Kristina. Her lectures are very engaging and entertaining. She is funny, very approachable and and I could tell she loves to teach and interact with students. I ended up learning a lot in this class and feel much more knowledgeable about the subject. The midterm was fairly straightforward and she gives study guides. Being familiar with the readings helps with the essay portion of the midterm. However, I think attending lecture is essential for doing well. Be aware that during some of her lectures she covers a lot of information quickly. If you got an A on the first midterm you had the option of doing a movie review instead of the second midterm which was nice. The prompt for the final paper is given to you on the first day of class so you have plenty of time to work on it. Overall a great class, I highly recommend her!
Kind of a cool class if you like comic books. Assignments were graded pretty leniently and it should not be difficult to get an A even if you never paid attention in class like me. Midterm is open note and you can even collaborate on the discussion forum. Professor Markman was pretty cool too
Definitely recommend this class if you are looking for an easy upperdiv history class.
Fairly easy class, but I did not have good interactions with the professor. I felt like she was standoffish and checked out. With the exception of the midterm, all assignments were writing, including the final. The midterm was based on class readings. It was multiple choice on CCLE, but the options super subjective to interpretation. The plus is that you were able to work collaboratively. Overall, easy class with extra credit options. I just couldn't get on board with the professor, despite the other positive reviews.
