Not a terrible class given it was Shakespeare & The Environment. Some participation is necessary. Not a heavy grader and is willing to work with you. However the class focused more on the environmental issues then Shakespeare.

Comment:
I took Rachana's Asian Literature course and enjoyed her teaching style so much that I also took Shakespeare with her as an elective my senior year. Her classes are on the easier side, so as long as you do the readings and participate in group discussion you'll be fine.

Comment:
Really lovely woman - she makes us cupcakes and is very nice. Everyone calls her by her first name. Super easygoing, doesn't care if you're late, barely cares if you did homework. You don't learn much and she gives everyone an A, so she's a real catch for requirement classes.

I have Rachana for both of my honors classes this year, and I love her! She really gets you to think of the topic she approaches in a new and different way, as she is always willing to look over your papers and really help you out. She is one of the best teachers out there.

Extremely easy grader. You watch a lot of films. The skits are hard only because people's schedules are so different, but really fun when actually performing. (No acting experience needed!!) Really fun teacher!

Comment:
I'm very surprised to see so many low ratings. I had Rachana for Shakespeare, and man was it fun! (As a business major who hates Shakespeare, that says a lot.) She was not a particularly hard grader, the skits/presentations were fun, and the field trip to D.C. was a blast. Nothing funnier than Sachdev getting a little tipsy at dinner.

Comment:
Thought & Civ was horrible. focused soley on the death penalty, all analysis of issue on her part was superficial. boring discussion, wasted paper with lots of readings, pointless trips (went to a prison & almost set off the alarms.) A lovely person outside the classroom, but avoid like the plague!

Comment:
Had her for writing and thinking. She missed a total of 4/5 classes. Her grading system is horrible. You read 5 books then write essays on them. Essays arent hard. All you do is talk in class. Everyone has to volunteer or you will write essays. She is a nice teacher and all, but the class is very boring (also considering I had the class at 8 a.m.)

Comment:
Dr. Sachdev is very disorganized, and gave me an 80 for class participation when I had attended more classes than she did. I learned some things in her class, but I honestly felt that her class was very dull. I would absolutely not recommend her.

Rachana's a very special, memorable prof. She took a personal interest in me and helped me to find my passion for teaching and language. She does miss a lot of classes, but she has a very active scholarly career, and she coordinates a Shakespeare conference. She opens minds.

She's a very hard grader and doesn't give the student any feedback about their grades. Assignments always seem vague and unclear, and class itself is very dull. Also, the 100 point system is completely ridiculous.

Misses tons of classes, very hard grader, her 100 point grading system is absolutely ridiculous and makes it hard to do well. I'd avoid taking her in the future.

while dr. sachdev obviously loves the material which she is teaching, it would be very nice if she took any interest whatsoever in the opinions of the students in her class. not only is she completely immune to others' mindsets, she takes forever to respond with critiques and grading assignments.

This prof. really knew how to connect with her students. She helped me realize my true potential in writing and gave me the confidence to follow my true desire to be in Communications, not biology. Due to Rachana I'm working in a field I love.
