"Inspirational" "Respected by students" "Hilarious"

One of my favorite teachers. Highly encourages group discussions and debates on topics. Average class was "Discuss previous topic, short powerpoint over new topic, class discussion, video related to topic". Also posted 'Test Bank' questions each day that would be the exact question on the upcoming test. Highly recommend taking this prof.

ANTH 2201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He has a strong accent which can be difficult to understand. He can get distracted very easily making it harder to pay attention. Each class he makes a test bank which is exactly what the questions on the test will be but the tests are short answer. He is an overall great teacher but not very tech savvy so its hard to get help from him.

Great guy. He is hilarious and entertaining. He gets the students involved in the discussions, that is pretty much all this class is. Made it very easy to come to class. Each day he writes "test bank" questions on board, basically those are things he is lecturing about that day and those are the test questions so write those down with the answers.

GG is hilarious! Writes test questions on the board and then spends class giving you the answers. You need the book for your presentation. There is a fieldstudy report where you interview 2 intl students. Attendance is at end of class. Wants students to pass. My class was doing poorly, so he made one exam takehome! 4 tests, final is NOT cumulative.

Professor GG is awesome. He gives you a test bank at the beginning of every class so that you know exactly what questions are on the test. He doesn't want anyone to fail. He is very straight forward with his lectures and pretty much goes by the test questions. Attend every class and keep up with the test bank. Doesn't really use the book much.

Easy class, book is necessary for your presentation but other then that you don't need it. Go to class, take note of the Test Bank he uses, and you'll be fine.

Easy class. Hes an awesome teacher. We pretty much teach each other. Only a few tests, very easy if you go to class. Takes attendance. I would definitely recommend him.

Very awesome guy, Interesting and funny. He can go off on tangents yet I feel i gained from the class. A lot of the test was opinionated and were very easy. Least stressful class of all!

Great professor, I'd recommend! By the way, the textbook is VERY important in this course, contrary to what some people on here are saying. Most of his tests are "fill in the blank"-style questions, so you have to be familiar with the material. Just do this and you'll get a good grade.

He is a nice professor, however very unorganized and tends to get off on tangents. He will give you test bank questions in each class make sure you get him to answer them otherwise you will wonder what he was teaching. You do not need the textbook so don't waste money on it. 1 presentation and 4 tests. Overall: Easy but boring.

He is a such a sweet guy but he is a little unorganized. Lucky all of his test cover information that his has given out. Pay attention to test banks and the review, if you study properly you will make the grade you want. Yes he is a pastor, but he has an open mind and allows everyone to share their point of view. Great guy, fun class.

He's a really nice man, and if you pay attention to what he's saying you can associate his crazy stories about Kenya with the different aspects of anthropology.

He lost my emailed paper six different times. I asked him every class period if he had greaded it and he said he never got it and I would show him proof from my school sent box. I was in his class every day yet he did not know my name. He also gave us a semi easy final and his review at the same time and left us all alone in the room hoping that we

He makes up the tests right before he gets to class and always admits he forgets about the test until earlier in the day. He'll say "study this" but that is usually misleading. Expects you to memorize 8 chapters worth of useless definitions for one test that he doesn't even teach. Brings up God in the class room as he's a pastor. Stay far away!

He's a nice guy and seems funny at first but the longer you stay in the class the more useless you realize it is. Tests are half vocab and half random questions. Doesn't speak English well & doesn't understand anything. Besides tests, gives papers back ridiculously late. Class has nothing to do with the tests but he takes attendance. Don't take him

He's a sweet man, so I feel kinda bad complaining about him, but his tests were incongruous with his classes. Basically, he provoked discussion, and the class argued, and then he tests you on things you never really learned. Read the chapters before the tests or you will absolutely fail them. He doesn't like to give bad grades if he can help it.

The tests are fairly easy if you study the defination handouts throughly. We had one paper, which was 3 pgs, and extremely easy to write. He gives everyone plenty of opportunities to get their desired grade, even the slackers. He loves everyone and his job. Would most def recommend you to take him.
