She's amazing! I had her in a smaller class and I LOVED her. Her essays were very fairly, if not easily, graded. She has done so much fieldwork, so her knowledge is reality based as opposed to theory based which makes the class much more interesting. I had her for comparative politics. HIGHLY recommended.

Awesome teacher for those who actually want to learn something and aren't just there to "pass". She has a ton of readings for her intro classes, but they're useful for the tests and she doesn't just reiterate them in lecture. This professor knows her stuff. Some people hate her because the class involves work.

of all the years at WSU I learned the least information from this class. The course reader was too hard of a read for a 103 class. You did not explain the material from the book very well and assumed we knew it. I suggest you move on to a different field.

First of all I do not hate my teacher but I do want to say that the course reader was very difficult to read and the material from class mixed with that book made it harder to comprehend. Of the 4 years at WSU I felt I learned the least amount of information from this class. You should consider quitting.

LIBERAL BIAS. It is the 2nd day of class and I can already read it. she said she wanted everyone to end the semester not knowing what political affiliations she has. Prefers CNN and BBC along with NY times for your information. It is obvious. If you're conservative be cautious.

This class is HARD, but if you survive you'll come out a better student. TONS of reading & lectures are a little disjointed. She is open to questions during lecture, so lectures can go anywhere. Sometimes adds interjects her political opinion, which is annoying. the class is interesting and forces you to think. You'll get out what you put in.

Organization of her whiteboard notes in class was pathetic, amount of readings were ridiculous for an introductory political science class. She didn't bother to completely read any e-mails I sent so she could never answer questions I had fully. Avoid this professor at whatever the cost, I wish I would have.

This professor could care less about helping the students. She is intelligent and knows about the topic, but has a hard time explaining the topics and ideas into terms which the students can understand. Also is a little moody.

Avoid her if you can. Amount of reading is ridiculous, and you won't do anything with it until the exam. Paper was so unclear. I had more work for this class than my four hundred level poly sci classes. She is so sporadic, and is not helpful at all.

she never finishes up her thoughts, which always seem to come out of nowhere. She treats her students as if they were idiots because the don't know the name of the leader of a 1950's separatist movement in some obscure country. She also grades as if you were pols majors and doesn't realize that most people are in the class to fill a requirement

worst teacher ever...all she cares about is iraq and terrorists and she has yet to complete a sentence without changing the subject halfway through. she doesnt make sense during her lectures and it takes her an hour and a half to give a half page of notes. i was forced to take her for freshman focus, and this is the class i hate the most-rediculous

Everything is related to "my research I got a grant for". seems very uninterested in undergrad classes. Take this from someone else.

Ignores student concerns. 15 page paper for a 102 class, I am a senior and could handle the tough research standards but freshman have little chance with this stuff--she frequently compares the work to grad school, forgetting that we are undergrads. A mid-term test question was 'Where did I get mugged in Africa?' AVOID

Workload was ridiculous for a 100-level class. Teacher regularly talked to students as though they were idiots. Reading assignments were not appropriate for beginning level political science class. Avoid teacher if at all possible!

Worst teacher ever.... DO NOT TAKE HER!!! The first day of class there was a hundred or so students then the next class 30 or so had dropped, and she said that was her goal. I wish I would have done the same. Stay clear of her.
