Comment: The professor has her own ideas about everything, and it's rather unprofessional. Minutes after literally yelling at protesting UC Berkeley students that she disagreed with, she changed our assignment to basically take a biased view about those students and their cause. It had nothing to do with our reading or any topic we'd covered. Later in the semester when the Occupy Berkeley protests started, that she supported, she encouraged students to ditch class and made yet another impromptu assignment for us to praise the Occupy movement. Her GSIs followed her biased approach and would give low marks to anyone who dared disagree with them. They all claimed they would be happy to hear an "alternative opinion" but once given they would get revenge by ignoring the issue and grade on completely arbitrary grounds. I didn't get above a C in that course until I started playing ball, and as soon as I pretended to agree, all of a sudden my grades went to As.
