    I didn't know what to expect when I switched into her class in the spring semester (after having a rough fall LitHum section), but I ended up loving it! Was seriously so lucky to switch into such a great section. Liza conducts class discussions very energetically, which helped the material stick with me. She made it really easy to participate and feel engaged, especially over zoom. Note that she does cold call, but there is no shame if you answer with an "I don't remember" or an "I'm not sure". So while it's kind of scary when she calls on you, if you don't know the answer its nbd. I had a family emergency mid-semester, and she was sooo understanding about it. She checked up on me as well as understood if I needed to miss class or turn in assignment late. She doesn't grade super harshly (never got lower than a B on anything despite being a horrible reader), but gives great feedback! Overall she's a very happy, loveable, exciting person, and you'll probably love her too!

    Literally do not take this class. First of all, he barely lectures. He goes on tangents, never stays on topic, interjects unnecessarily with his weird social and political commentary, and barely reformatted class to be on Zoom. He worries more about his podcast than teaching this class and is extremely unaccommodating and understanding. It's almost as if we weren't in a global pandemic for this past year. extremely unavailable, doesn't have office hours, and is overall horrible. do not take this class.

    fair warning to STAY AWAY from john mcwhorter's intro linguistics class. the professor is extremely funny, yes, but a horrible and unkind teacher. he is extremely vague and teaches complex concepts that necessitate some sort of visual (ex: like syntax) without a PowerPoint or any sort of interactive material -- he didn't bother to reformat his class in any way for the virtual learning environment, instead opting to just bulldoze through the material in an entertaining but insubstantial and tangential manner, as he puts it, "podcast-style." further, his lectures DO NOT prepare for the extreme difficulty of his homework in ANY regard. I've talked to at least ten different people in the discord server and in office hours and we all have no fucking clue what is going on and. the TAs (some of them at least; Yael is incredible and the only reason why I am passing this course) are the only saving grace of this course, and explain concepts so much more clearly in office hours; this class should be 4 credits because office hours are basically mandatory if you want to get a passing grade on the homeworks. he is also extremely strict/does not care about the fact that we are in a pandemic and replies to requests for extensions in a very curt (read: 2-3 words) and insensitive manner. tldr: don't buy into the mcwhorter hype and DO NOT take this class with him. maybe it's better in person, but this intro humanities class is the most time-consuming and stressful class I'm taking this semester. his podcast and ted talks are pretty cool, but he is not a good professor in any regard.
