Awesome teacher. If you ever need help and you are having a hard time with anything just ask him for help and he'll be more than glad to help.

COMM1201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I am surprised others thought he was difficult- I had a very easy time in his class. One thing I will say is that his midterm was tricky. You need to study for it. But you will enjoy his class because of how great and involved a professor Turk is. The class is informal, and he loves to chat instead of lecture. Take him!

Really nice professor, tries to help you anytime he can. He is also really funny and tries to keep things interesting. If you miss a speech he lets you make it up at the end of the term as long as you have a valid excuse. I'll miss his class!

If holding a person accountable makes him hard then I guess he's hard but if you show up to class, read what is given to you to read, do your speeches to the best of your ability and ask questions when you are lost, I don't know you get anything less than a B and you will get an A more than likely. You will learn in his class !

I really enjoyed his class! 3 speeches, two tests (midterm and final). The midterm was multiple choices and the final was a take home) His class is not difficult. He is really helpful! I really recommend him!

COMM1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I somewhat enjoyed his class. But so much reading!! The articles got boring after a while. He is very knowledgeable, but makes it harder than what it has to be. He uses difficult language and when he teaches he is all over the place and he talks, talks and talks. He is only alright.

I enjoyed the subject matter of this class. The instructor seems very intelleigent and knowledgable about human communications. He made sure we knew what assignments were due and when they were due, if i had any questions he was very helpful and explained things so that i could understand them, sometimes though he would speak too quickly. I learned

Other than there being too many speeches, 1201 and Dr. Turk I thought were a very very helpful. Don't assume his relaxedness about attendance means you're not gonna miss a lot when youre absence. He doesn't take roll but if you don't come to class you miss a bunch!

I took Public Speaking with this prof in Summer. It was fast-pased course but overall I really liked how he taught. Very interesting and understands his students. Group presentation was one of the best parts of the class. don't miss class unless you want to fall behind.

He is the best teacher ever!! Take him, you will not regret it. You will wish he taught more than communication. He is very fair in his grading. I received an A and even people who did not do so well received a good grade. Take him!!

Go back to the first few pages of these comments for the truth. He treats students as if they are stupid if they ask a question. He wastes so much time talking in circles until it feels like your head is going to spin off and you still don't get an answer. Pop qzs. Outlines were full sent. Take home final? Write the equiv of 3 more speeches.

Don is everything a good professor needs to be. Everything seems tough on paper but he encourages you to work for your grade and that is very rewarding. He grades on content rather than deliver because he understands that people may be nervous. He is also a very interesting person and extremely well-spoken. I don't recall a single "um" or "uh."
