"Inspirational" "Lectures are long" "Participation matters"

Dr. Stir is a really cool person, but classes consist of lectures every single day. Tests don't are structured around his study guides, but the study guides are just outlines of your notes. READ AS YOU GO. He doesn't give book pages, but you should read on your own. If you're active in classes, he won't let you fail.

Poor transfer of his lecture notes to the test. They have nothing in common. Read the book.

Dr. Stir is kind and helpful. He knows the Bible and makes it interesting. He genuinely cares about the students and takes time to talk with you outside of class as needed. Ask questions and interact in class and you'll find yourself enjoying every minute of it!

Chri 1313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof Stir is a nice person but a horrible teacher. His lectures were never clear. Test reviews were him reading back his terrible class handouts. He rarely kept to the class syllabus or schedule. we were either behind or didn't cover enough in class and often left on our own to figure our what we were suppose to know to do well in the class.

Old Testament Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

you have no idea what the tests are over, so you have to read everything - bible and textbook. tests are NOT over lectures (except maybe 1 event).

CHRI 2243 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not operate heavy machinery after taking this class… may cause drowsiness! Most students pass the time with solitaire, magazines, or a nap. However, his tests are easy and come directly from the lecture notes(usually handouts). Also, a twelve page paper is due at the end of the quarter.
