Comment: This class is very interesting and the skills/knowledge gained in this course is valuable. It focuses mainly just on 2 topics: Hetch Hetchy and Owens Valley. It does not cover California's water history as a whole which was a bit disappointing and the course title is therefore misleading. This class is a lot of work: waaay too much for a 3 unit class. Nevertheless, it is rewarding and it will make you a better researcher and writer- something that will enrich your college experience. Professor Steenland is very engaged. Lectures were filled with lively discussions: the best part of class. If you put in the work, it is definitely worth it (unless you suck at writing). I knocked out both my AC and historical studies breadth. Note this class is the same as 150AC

Comment: This is truly a rewarding class, you'll learn to write like an experienced writer. The writing tools this class provides you with, will help you in all your classes at berkeley when you have any essays or writing assignments. Also, I've heard that the experience you have in this class depends a whole lot on who your professor is.

Comment: Never ever take her courses!! WORST professor I've ever met in Berkeley! Once refused to give comments to a student's essay because "She Had No Time". Extreamly irresponsible professor.

Comment: Never take R1A with her or you will regret. Worst professor ever. Shame of Berkeley. She is so irresponsible that you do not even have a chance to have your portfolio revised if she doesn't like you.
