She's actually a pretty good teacher. She's very understanding. Just follow the study guides she gives and you'll be fine. You'll have to do some article summaries and "mind dumps" which are pretty much no-brainers. Just put in a little effort, it's an easy class. You can get an A by studying on your own. Don't miss any assignments.

Dr. Somers was pretty cool and was a pretty good teacher. She knows what she is talking about and is always there for questions. STUDY FOR THE MIND DUMPS! They are harder than they seem

She teaches at College of DuPage as well under Pat Somers. She is a good teacher and as long as you attend class you will be OK. Great discussions.

Kind of ridiculous. Very egocentric and condescending. I took her for abnormal psych, and any differing opinion she will degrade you for. One thing I hated was her little in-class mini projects, and her refusal to let you out even 10 minutes early, despite being completely finished. I missed class due to a big snowstorm, and she took it personally.

This class was interesting and the assignments were fun and thought-provoking. She uses several mediums to teach: lecture, video and team-based learning assignments that you do in class. She prepares a study guide for each exam, tests are not cumulative. She gives serveral opportunities for extra credit. She's a very approachable and interesting pe

What an amazing instructor. Tests are easy. Just read the chapters before class. Presentation was super easy but required actual effort. Mind Dumps are easy too, just memorize some stuff from the chapter. She is very very knowledgeable and will make you think. No kidding. I love her and her class! I would take it again if I could.

Very clear and concise teaching. Offers a lot of extra credit. If you go to class and do the extra credit you're guaranteed an A.

Horrible teacher. She also teaches Sociology 100 so watch out. She's a psychiatrist also, she may be good or decent as a psychiatrist but she is horrible as a teacher. Her tests make no sense, her lectures are useless, and she doesn't follow the book at all.
