Lazy teacher, boring class. All he does is sits and lectures or puts on a movie (there are 10 throughout the semester). The classes are laid back but the amount of documents he makes us read for homework is crazy. His tests are pretty detailed but all multiple choice. He's needed to raise all the test grades by 10% because they were bad.

He is very nice and likes to crack jokes from time to time. He often refers to his own life experiences as an anthropologist so it shows that he knows what he is talking about. His classes are just going through LEA notes and watching videos that you have to take notes on so there is nothing "fun" as such but it is pretty laid-back. You can easily get a good grade if you do all the assignments and study for exams (there are only 2).

He is dull but his class is pretty laid-back and easy. If you read all his LEA notes and do all assignments on time, you can easily get an average above 90%. He is a really nice teacher and surprisingly very understandable. He projects a lot of videos, but if you take notes, they're an easy 5% to your grade! If you're looking for a dynamic class, don't take him. If you're looking for an easy class in which you don't have to attend every one of the classes, take him.

Had him for Research Methods and it was honestly the easiest class ever. Lectures and/or movies each class and you could easily get 100% on every assignment. However, he's extremely monotone and opinionated and doesn't make you interested in class material - not very approachable. Tests are all multiple choice and are easy if you read the textbook and pay attention to what he says. I'd recommend if you want a laid back class!

One of the worst teachers I've ever had. There is pretty much no point going to class if you do the readings. If you can actually get through all the readings the tests will be pretty easy but if you're the type of person that studies the night before the test I would avoid him. It's pretty much impossible to get through all the stuff he posts to Lea in one night.

He is a nice guy and he is probably the laziest teacher I had, but that isn't necessarily bad! All the course material is always available online and although he is monotone, doesn't speak very loud in class and made me fall asleep at least once a week, the sessions are usually very interesting and only listening is well enough to pass the exams. All exams are multiple choice questions on an OPSCAN sheet, so they barely take 30 minutes to complete. I recommend because he gives a relaxed course.

In terms of class work, he makes everything VERY clear in the online notes and it is not hard to get decent grades if you study.. However, he can be kind of inappropriate and rude sometimes. Those who say he is monotone, yes he is, but it isn't a teacher's job to keep your interest. You won't always have teachers who can make every class interesting so get used to it I guess. Anyway, overall a decent teacher and decent class (RM & QM)

Don't take him. i'm a good student and I can't do well on his tests because i simply can't pay attention in class. he is monotone. He needs to find ways to make his class interesting instead of discouarging his students on the consequences of failing

As long as you follow all of his instructions, it is extremely easy to do well in this class. There are 2 tests which are made fairly, 2 long essays with very detailed outlines and one family tree. It is very easy to get in the 80s and 90s in this class as long as you follow his instructions.

Kind of quiet and monotone, if you like to sit at the back you wont hear him very much, but if you sit near the front you'll find he's quite interesting and has funny stories. Exams are all multiple choice and have a few questions that are completely random, but also have a few questions that are so obvious by the answers he gives,so balances out. Assignments are super easy, as long as you follow his instructions to the point, you'll get an easy 90 on them. Overall, great guy,i'd take him again

He gives great notes and he explains everything in detail. If you do not pay attention, you'll have trouble with the assignments and the tests. What you do in class directly reflects what you're going to be tested on. If you pay attention and do your assignments you will get a good grade. Do not expect this teacher to make the course matter interesting because he does not.

at first I thought it would be a horrible class and was scared offailing, but after a while I came to realize that if u were present for all the participation videos and take notes there's automatically 10% right away, if you fail both tests u pass with a 60 no matter what, and assignments are very hands on if you follow all instructions, assignments is where u get most of the marks that boost your grade. There very easy,memorize ur material well for the test , it would help for multiple choice.

He is nice to you if you are nice to him. He is very friendly and helpfull if u come to class and do all your work on time. Hates people that don't show up to class and those who talk in class. Will take marks off if u have a big mouth. Pretty easy marker. I think that he's a great teacher and if he sees that you are making an effort, he will not let u fail.
