THE BEST PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD. She is extremely entertaining & makes the material very interesting. There is no textbook you watch movies, like Gangs of New York, instead. There are 2 essays and 2 exams, so you have to work hard to get good grades, but it is easy to make it to this class because she's so fun. I loved her & this class. As long as you go to class, take good notes, and study, you'll do fine. Didnt use the text books at all. She makes the lectures fun and its actually entertaining to go to her class. I definitely recommend her!
