I took her for History 111C. She is completely disorganized. No one pays attention in class and those who bother to pay attention and ask questions she yells at. Her study guides are long and impossible to do. I would not recommend this classs AT ALL. I took it because it fit perfectly in my schd and I totally regretted taking it. the midterm is 45% attendance is 5 % in addition to weekly outlines you have to do and the final is 55%. Even though I did the outline + terms there is SO much information to memorize that it's really an unrealistic expectation she has to make us memorize those MILLIONS of terms and essay questions and only put a few on the final. don't take her. you'll dread every moment in her class. she jst has no spunk to her.. she needs to spice up the class! this course was an interesting subject but as I looked around the class theyre were people fast asleep! oh and if it's any consolation i'm not bitter I have a 3.8.
Spring 2020 - This class taught me a lot. Professor is very knowledgeable about the subject, but sometimes takes for granted that students might not follow as easily. However, she is nice and will always explain again of you ask her to. Make sure to take notes during class, many topics cannot be found online, only through the teacher and some course materials
Winter 2019 - This class was very informative and covers a lot of history. The teacher was very passionate which made the class more interesting and engaging. This history is important, especially now while the jewish people are so misunderstood in media. It really sheds light on the reality of history.
Winter 2020 - I took Professor Pirnazar's class this past Winter 2020. This was one of my favorite classes I have ever taken at UCLA. Professor Pirnazar goes through the history of the Iranian Jews with clarity and patience. She always takes time to answer questions and is always diligent while teaching her content. She uses Powerpoint slides to present her lectures and they are super clear and easy to follow. If you are ever confused about something she is super sweet about answering questions during the lecture. The class consists of an in class written midterm, final, weekly homework assignments which are just a brief summary of the weekly readings and participation points. You can find the textbooks on reserve at Powell. Overall I highly recommend this class! I would 100% take it again if I could!
