Comment: Prof Oakes grades fairly and gives useful feedback. She has helped me become a stronger writer by challenging the me to write papers that have arguable claims, address a real-world phenomenon/issue, and integrate research to support the essay. Make sure to check the theme of your R4B course's section on the College Writing Program website. As you'd probably know, the class is far more enjoyable if you like the topic and readings - otherwise, it'll feel like a burden. Most importantly, you'll likely be writing a research paper on the class' theme - my COLWRIT R4B theme with Prof Oakes was "Music and Social Movements".
