POLSCI-110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

Pols103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

PSci103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

POLS102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

POLS102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

POLS102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.
