ANTH102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ridiculous amount of writing for a 100-level course. 2/3 through the semester we only had 2 grades, so I made the (bad) decision not to drop it. I have no idea what she considers "good writing," considering that she thinks a good thesis can start with "My thesis is..." and gives no constructive feedback.

I feel like all the previous postings are from one person with a personal vendetta against her. With that being said, she is a fairly easy grader and has a very interesting curriculum. She is extremely understanding and will go very far to help students outside of class. I recommend taking her.

THIS TEACHER IS A GPA KILLER! the material is easy, but she doesnt teach, and her idea of a paper is graduate level. this is a 100 level class seriously. if you have the option of getting out DO IT. worst teacher ever. o and she doesnt tell you your grades so you dont know your failing until you have.

She is the worst teacher I have had at Loyola so far. She expects way too much out of sudents and she doesn't explain things well. According to her, there is a right answer to a subjective question. Her class is a GPA killer. I'm an A student and I ended up with a C+ in her class even when I did really well on her Midterm papers.

This class sucks! She fails everyone on her midterms. She is very unclear in her directions and is very political. Her big project was only worth ten percent of our grade and she expected an eight page paper and ten hours of fieldwork. DO NOT TAKE HER!!!!!!!

For all the negative comments about Professor Singleton, the material we are learning is fairly simple, but the workload is RIDICULOUS!!! Four 8-page papers and a 10 to 15 page project. I'm doing much more writing in here than my writing intensive class or other advanced-level classes. WAY TOO MUCH WORK FOR A 100-level CLASS!!!

The worst teacher ever! You don't learn anything about anthropology! It feels like a writing class. You have to write about 30 pages at the end of the year. And whatever you do, DO NOT say anything conservative or she will fail you.

ANTH102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

DON'T TAKE THIS CLASS! She talks down to everyone, as if we're three years old. And she is so one-sided when it comes to class topics, that to disagree with her would be suicide for your GPA. She'll talk about her personal life or go off on random tangents. Midterms and finals are take home papers, but she is an EXTREMELY hard grader on those.

This professor was one of the worst i've ever had... Her lectures are difficult to follow because she always goes off on useless tangents, she talks quietly and can make one of the more interesting topics extremely tedious and boring. Projects are time consuming and useless, and uses the same format for every test issued all essay tests 9 page min.

okay all the positive comments are from people who got lucky on those midterms - i was one of the people that dropped out and was smart about it before the withdraw date. she insulted not only me, but a lot of people telling them that they couldn't write and that they should call their high schools and yell at them for not teaching us how to write.

Let's just say she came in after our first midterm and yelled at us for getting her in trouble with the head of her department. If you want a C you have to agree with her. If you disagree with her political views and personal views there's no way you'll get higher than a C. She shoots down anyone who disagrees with her, and turns it into a fight.

Prof.Singleton is an extremely hard grader when it comes to papers.There were about five people who dropped the class after the first midterm (which was a take home paper).In fact, so many people complained about her that the head of her department forced her to give us optional extra credit, which is yet another paper and probably worth 2 points.

Dr. Singleton is a great professor! She is very passionate about her field and has really amazing perspectives. She does expect well written papers. You will not do well in the class if you don't go!

terrible teacher. judges anyone who doesnt believe in her political views. uncomfortable classroom situation. goes completely off tangent in her already unclear lecture (brought in a speaker to force her views down our throats). expects graduate level work from a 100 level class. 8 hours spent on a paper is "not that much time". DONT TAKE THIS PROF

Has SUCH a political agenda. Class is always uncomfortable. I haven't learned much about anthro, just her political views. Gives awful examples for new terms because she makes sure to only use politics. Bashes on our writing, even though she claims that a thesis statement should start with "I argue that..." or "My thesis statement is..." Seriously?
