Govt2306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Did not take this class online but wish I had. In class she is too hyper & loud. gets off topic. Don't miss a class bc then you'll miss test answers. While she's very knowledgable/energetic about govt., she's a bit too much at times. 3 tests, 10 online quizzes, 1 research PowerPoint. Made an A. I don't recommend her.

Ms. Bell is a character. She is LOUD and she is OPINIONATED. She will keep you awake during class that is for sure. She is really funny and gets off topic a lot, she can come across as offensive at times but just listen and do what she says and you will do fine.

Professor Bell was by far one of the best professors I have had in college. She truly helps engage the students in the material and even posts video lectures so you feel as though you are in a classroom setting. Although parts of this course were tough, I definitely recommend taking this professor and would take her courses again.

Taking her class online is easy. I didn't learn a thing. She has very easy assignments, you just have to make sure you turn them in on time. Because she didn't set up the grade section in angel right, your average in angel will not match your actual grade. Just read the syllabus to figure out how she calculates your grade. I don't recommend her.

Hyper & gets off topic easily, so a lot of studying u will need to do on your own. Attendance is MANDATORY. Tests cover a lot of information. There are 10 online quizzes. Tests/ quizzes are more like "did u remember that exact number/year?" rather than "did u comprehend the material?" type questions. Did not really enjoy class. She's too loud.

Professor Bell is very energetic which helped make the course easier to understand for me. This was my second time to take this course (with a different professor) & I have definitely learned a lot more in her class. She does post all of her notes on angel so the book is not really necessary unless you want to read the chapters in your free time.

GOV 2306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

5 discussion posts, 3 tests, and a paper. She tells you exactly whats on the test, and the tests were multiple choice, HOWEVER she told us today that she is switching to essay questions next year. Shes very loud and thinks that she is all that. She's big on catching cheaters, she always talks about busting kids. Kind of annoying. Easy class though.

She really does tell you what will be on the test, but you do still have to study. There is a lot of material covered for each test, so it's important to come to class and pay attention. She likes using numbers. Don't buy the book, total waste of money.

Very energetic and tells you exactly what is on the test. Make sure you are in class. She is very helpful and spells out exactly what needs to be in your 4 microthemes and 1 small research paper. no need for the text book. Gives you lots of opportunity for extra credit. Just go to class and pay attention. Shell help you on anything you need.

I'm a 5th year college student and took this freshman level course cause I never got around to it. Best professor I've had BY FAR. Don't let the long paper scare you. SHE WILL HELP YOU WITH WHATEVER YOU NEED. JUST ASK. She is young and really knows how to relate the information to college students. Eye opening class as well. She knows her stuff.

Mrs. Bell has a lot of energy and is very passionate. We really took time to discuss the subject which was fun but it also put us behind. Therefore you have to learn a lot on your own. Print off the notes! That is really helpful. she'll give you extra cresit opportunities, take them! She'll also throw stuff on you at the last min so pay attention

Mrs. Bell is an awesome teacher. She's passionate about what she teaches which provides for easy learning. Upbeat and direct, this class is a breeze. BUT, do not slack on the research paper! Again, easy class and she's very pretty, which can be both distracting and a way to pay attention. Best teacher thus far.

Bell is a good teacher, her tests are easy and she doesn't use the book much. However, her final paper is insanely long and difficult; very few people will make an A on it. Take her if you like to write huge papers.

Bell is amazing! She engages in and relates topics to what students can relate to like The Simpsons and Teen Moms, etc. Her paper is quite lengthy, and she is a tough grader since her prior major was journalism. But, she basically wants to help students out in the long run. Tests are based on the powerpoints so attend class! R

Lecture attendance is mandatory for passing. Print all notes to study. Toughest research paper I have had to write so far. But, she always helps!!! Good Luck!
