Amazing course and instructor!!! My favorite class and one of the best I've ever taken at UH Manoa!
great teacher!
I really enjoyed this course because the subject matter was controversial and intellectually engaging. Lee Ann's engaging attitude and informal discussion-style classroom helped me relate to the material. Her attitude was always understanding and compromising. The only things that I found difficult with the course structure was the changing of the dates and material on the syllabus. It is helpful to have a structured course that does not deviate from the plan too often because it then creates confusion with student's various workloads. Also, that the "original" plan for a weekly writing assignment that was at least two pages long, is a bit much for a course that is not writing intensive. With other 400-level courses, keeping up with a weekly writing assignment may be a bit challenging.
Wonderful teacher and a very engaging class to be in.
Lee Ann is freaking awesome and I loved her class, ill definitely be aiming to have her as an instructor again.
I cannot stress enough how wonderful this class and Lee Ann were. Lee Ann was so nice, caring, understanding, patient, and down-to-earth. She made the classroom a comfortable environment and really got the class talking. She was never hesitant to explain a concept and was never impatient when students asked questions. She made sure everyone understood what was being discussed. Lee Ann's assignments were both intellectually challenging and time consuming (i.e. the readings), but were also eye opening and interesting. I can honestly say that this is an amazing class with an even more amazing instructor. UH really needs more instructors like Lee Ann!

Lee Ann was one of the best instructors I have had. She challenged you but in a very approachable way. She was almost too cool for school. Which is a weird cliche to use, but the best way I could explain my experiences with her. I think she represents what I would like to see in more college classes in the future and that is her undeniable grasp on the subject allowed for her to give us reading materials that were some of the most relevant materials I have gotten in my four years of college. The materials always seemed systematic in its purpose and assisted the topic we were learning in class flawlessly. Also her persistence in meeting with each student one on one for every paper was refreshing and seemed crazily ambitious but was appreciated more than she will know. She was also insanely understanding and lenient with a lot of her students and I think that comes from her ability to identify with students. I could tell that this built a trust between her and her students, I wish a lot of the materials she had made optional weren't so, but it allowed students like me to read them and students that didn't want to, to have a choice. Which I think is good for college because it puts your educational experience as your responsibility. So maybe this is an overstatement, but I think what Lee Ann created represents what I think college courses should be like.
I hope to be in another one Lee Ann's classes in the future!
Lee Ann is very good at explaining complex ideas so that everyone in the class is on the same page even if someone has never heard of a certain topic before coming to class. I appreciated how understanding she is when it comes to any personal issues that conflict with deadlines. She also does a great job, when meeting one-on-one, at making sure you're understanding everything and to make sure she is doing her best in general. Lee Ann is very approachable and I would recommend her to anyone taking this class.
Fantastic class to take!
Awsome teacher! Topics. Are really interesting!
Best new teacher ever!
Great teacher and perfect as is!
Really enjoyed the class. The readings were a little long but very interesting and interesting topics as well. Lee Ann did an excellent job on helping us if we needed and really explained the readings in a intriguing way. Our class discussions were also helpful and she was able to keep us interested.
