I took Jim for Interaction & Communication and it was a great class. Really interesting and fun. A lot of readings and a couple assignments but all extremely easy. Very easy to do very well in his class. He always gives extensions and is very understanding. Highly recommend!!!!
Interaction & Communication was great. Many people say "Oh take him, you won't have any work to do and you don't do anything". There is actually some work to be done (readings and a few assignments), but the class is great. You learn a lot of things that will actually help you in life and will stick with you. I highly recommend this teacher and this course, take it if you have the chance, it really is great.
He is a great guy! Wise, intelligent and kind. His class(interactions & communication) is by far the easiest social science class you can take. Definitely take him if possible! His assignments are easy and his quiz are easy. I ended the class with a 97% class average 90%. All his assignments are based on yourself and how you feel which makes it all sooooo easy!
His interaction and communication class has to be the easiest class in CEGEP. The grades only consist of quiz each week and a few easy assignment. The class will lead you to talk a lot with your peers so if you're not comfortable with that you should avoid it. However, if you can take this class, just do it since it will make one of your social science class really easy. Also James is a nice guy.
This class is great. But there is one common problem with this teacher, he does not tell you when things are due. You have to hold on to the course outline and keep track of all the assignments. He wont tell you during class time either when thing are due. So that is kind of annoying since 1500 words essays are due before you even know what they are.
Interaction and communication is a great class, its so much fun and it is so easy! Jim is a really sweet teacher and he is so smart. I would recomend taking him 100%!
There is some confusion: HE IS NOT AN ACCOUNTING TEACHER!! He teaches a PSYC concentration Communication and Interaction. I believe he is THE BEST TEACHER AT ABBOTT! TAKE HIM!! :D Seriously, he is amazing, you sit on pillows, talk, do fun activities, listen to his super interesting lectures and relax. No tests, few assignments and he is an easy marker. I got 95% ;) he is Wise, Funny, Nice & I never missed a class, I couldn't wait to go to school (trust). My favorite class and teacher so far! :D
BEST TEACHER EVER! TAKE HIM!! Pillow class, you get to relax and liscen to his lectures, super interresting, i never missed a class! assignement easy! NO TESTS! REALLY NICE GUY!! BEST CLASS AT ABBOTT SO FAR! HE IS THAT AWESOME! Every class is SOOO FUN :D
Whoever says hes a bad teacher or the class is pointless is crazy. The book is probably one of the best Ive ever read, and the class activities were extremely entertaining to say the least. There wasn't a single class I wasn't baked for, and I still came out with an A- mark. Oh how I wish I could take this class again :'(
Interaction and communication was 3 hours of sitting on a pillow and talk about you and do meditation. It was interesting but sometimes long..easy to pass the class! the teacher is laidback
Awesome teacher. He reminds us of Clark Kent/Superman. He will save you from misery and failing his class! His **** makes you want to listen to him. If you want an eyecandy teacher, you need to ta
Okay was okay. It was long and at times boring, Teacher nice, just it specific with what answers he is looking for on the quiz
I took this class 18 years ago, have since completed a BFA and MBA, Prof. Katz's Human Relations in a Professional World class brought me life engaging skills as well as meaningful inspiration: a must
Best accounting teacher Abbott offers for sure. Very clear as well as fair. He will never assign anything too difficult to do if you have been following in class. No need to study if you pay attention
Best teacher ever! He is so helpful! Takes the time to explain until you understand. Always available if you need more help. Listen, do the work, study and you'll do great! Take him!
Amazing teacher!! very aproachable. Very good teacher knows well how to explain everything this is the teacher you wish you had for all your classes
awesome teacher and easy to get alone with.can approach and talk to him about whatever u have trouble with.very smart and knows what he's talking about .Very cool teacher i wish i had him for all my classes
He's one of the most insightful teachers you'll ever meet. His class isn't hard or slack, just study once in a while and you should be good.
James Katz is an amazing teacher! The class is a little long, but it is never boring because we do something different each class. You sit on pillows with your shoes off, and talk about your feelings. Do your readings and you'll easily get a 90. 64 percent of your mark is based on the easiest quizzes ever, so it's hard to fail. Take this class!
Hes a VERY intelligent teacher! Very approachable and he listens to the students. Maybe a little bit of a hard marker but he's very insightful.
Really Good class. Very easy but gets you to interact with others. Which is what the class is about.Awesome teacher too!! take this class
Best Class Ever!! If you like a chill class take this one...
James is a wonderful man. He helped me a lot when I knew nothing. So as long as you are willing to put in work, he definately will help you out. No Slakkers!!!
nice teacher, somewhat absract, read his chapters, do the two assignments and you will pass
Had him for interaction&communication. His class is really slack, you do activities and whatever during the actual 3 hour class. But the projects are long and the kind of stuff he asks you to do are really far out
seriously DON'T take this class. SO much work for such a slack class. you sit around doing nothing and then you're assignments are ridiculous. DON'T TAKE IT
these ppl must be kidding me,my first essay was 32 pages, my second 40 (and that was not alot for what it was!!) and i have a third to go!!
Fairly easy class as long as you read the book for the tests. He's an easy marker as long as you show effort. You learn interesting things in his class although sometimes his class exercises make you feel uncomfortble.
The class wasn't as great as I had expected it to be. The activities are fun but it's nothing you can use after the class is really over.. Also, the tests are incredibly demanding. Teacher hardly kept us the whole 3 hrs!
Easy class, but the man isn't as great as people are saying he is.
His course is great, very nice person, you do fun stuff in class - no lecture, hand in the assignments and don't be late and you will be fine. Doing the assignments is a lot of work, but take your time + you'll get a 100%
If you let yourself enjoy the class and stop worrying about what people are thinking about you the class is amazing!
Great class and really nice teacher. Really worth taking the course
Alright.. So the class is nice, relaxing and you basically interact with others the whole class. (Also no lectures). However, test asks for specifics about the book, so watch out!
This class is ok. A bit pointless at times, however his classes are relaxing! You hardly do anything in class and there's not too much work either. Nice guy, but don't be late!
easiest class at John Abbott College! 87% without breaking a sweat!...only 3 assignments all semester and they are Simple!
VERY NICE MAN. HE IS VERY INTERESTING AND THE CLASS IS QUITE EASY JUST BE SURE TO ATTEND THE CLASSES. HE IS DEFINITELY WORTH TAKING!
ProbAbly the only class at abbott in which i learned something helpful in life. get it, its easy!!
great teacher this class will teach you something for life
Greatest teahcer I've ever had...take his class he is great!!!
Friggin Awesome! this is a must! take this teacher and his class when you can, trust me, you won't regret it
great teacher, fun and easy going, no note taking and tests are easy.
Fun class! I did no work and got an A...just made up anything for the assignments and it made sense so i got amazing grades! And the classes themselves are fun!
super fun class,sit on pillows.little work,but ppl got lower mark than expected
Just don't apply the comfort you have in class (on the pillows) to the homework.
