You can definitely tell that she loves this subject. This was probably my favorite class. The assignments and tests are not too difficult if you pay attention, take notes, and study.

Professor Bishop is not very helpful at all. If you have any questions she will not answer them. She gives you good grades on all your papers then on the final fails you. Even if you study for the tests they are not worded well and results in only average grades. I do not recommend this professor at all.

She doesn't explain what you are supposed to do and when anything is due.

Confusing, Rude, and Irrational. Stay away from this teacher. She grades 5 analysis easy. Then she grades you like she is a different teacher on the final paper. What a joke of class in the first place. 12 hours of service learning project are required to pass this test. Do not take this class from her.

Do your speeches according to the directions in the packet and you'll do well. As long as you prepare in advance and practice her grading won't be too hard. The only con was that almost 1/3 of your grade was just attendance and she was not willing to work with anyone on that. Great professor overall, though. Study guides are great for the test.

Tests are very vaguely worded. She is NOT willing to work with students, even in extreme circumstances, and is extremely rude. She NEVER updates her grades, and doesn't tell you what your grade is even if you ask. Honestly, she is the worst professor I've ever had, and her expectations are unreasonable, especially on the final paper.

She is happy when she wants to be and if you follow her instructions down to the letter. At times she could be downright stubborn but overall just go to class, read the packet and analyze test study guides CAREFULLY and you should do good.

I would not recommend her at all even if you do all your work and all the tests and think you pass but you miss six days you fail. She was not very helpful and i felt like i was being treated like a 10 year old

Hard Class. Group work where you need to work with others all through the class. Bishop is fair but you need to listen to her and follow instructions. Tests are tricky but if you study - no problem.

Dr. Bishop is very knowledgeable and a great professor. She is straight forward and only expects you to act like the adults we should be. I recommend her and appreciate her class!

DO NOT TAKE IT FROM HER!!! Rants and complains every class. Tests are HORRIBLE! Half the test questions are Dr. Bishop says? Super critical and stuck on herself she is out of touch with reality and thinks her class is the most important class at Weber. One whole class was taught about APA format!

Her tests were easy to study for but all answers came from the book. She gives you guides for the exams which are helpful. This class has helped me get over my public speaking fear and made me a better public speaker. She doesn't grade hard on the speech as long as you do the paper work right.

This class was great! A *TON* of your grade is just basically attendance. It's great. I've gotten about 80's on all my tests, but if you level it out with speeches you will get an A. She grades more on your paper work, and goes easy on your speeches. I've gone from someone who stumbled in speeches, to someone who hasn't. Make sure you read the book

When I decided to take this class, I was worried because of all her bad ratings,--I took this class anyway. During these weeks I learned to speak, and I must say it was a great experience. If you are failing her tests--read the book, not the study guide. If you are failing her speeches--Write your outline well, and practice. She's fair. I got an A-

Bishop's class required a lot of work outside of class. Test's were vague and difficult. Not willing to work with you outside of class. She had test dates LISTED WRONG on the syllabus and when I missed the test I called several times and emailed her... A week later all she said to me was "You had plenty of time. You should have prepared better."

The class was somewhat easy but I did not like the professor. She was very rude and disrespectful to her students. I remember one particular day she went on for about 20 minutes on how we are stupid and we don't know anything but she isn't because she is the professor. In this class you have to do a 12 hour group service project outside of class.

She is a very enthusiastic teacher. Her exams are vague and confusing and result in average grades. She tries to be structured but gets behind schedule sometimes. Overall she is an ok teacher.

If you're looking for an easy A, this is not the class for you, but Dr. Bishop is fair. So long as you do your work, study, and show improvement on your speeches (there are 4), you will get an A. Also, if you really use the study guides that she gives, the tests are a piece of cake - no surprises.
