Proffesor Hatton is awesome. Three tests, fifty multiple choice each. Basically a highschool class. She will give you a study guide before each test that will pretty much include everything. A very interesting class with very minimum course load.

meet twice a day. one day is all lecture and the other day you watch a documentary. READ the textbook and listen to the lectures online and you will be fine. she does curve each tests depending on what questions students had trouble with. and yes if you have trouble during the exam and ask her, she will practically give you the answer.

All lectures are posted online because she doesn't want students who use cell phones/laptops in lecture. Three tests non-cumulative which are all multiple choice. Stay on top of the textbook readings and go/watch lectures and you'll do fine. During tests if you're one of the last ones she'll basically tell you the answer to a question if you ask.

3 exams, gives you the textbook online free, post lectures online so you don't have to come to class, sends out study guides. However, she doesn't care for her students because she will not be there when she doesn't need to, tells you to not contact her, doesn't put many words on her powerpoints so you have to write from what she says

Barely went to lectures, we watched a number of videos, just understand the material posted on the exam reviews, read the textbook, she gave it to us online for free, 3 exams, 50 questions each, all multiple choice, fairly straightforward, slight curves sometimes, generally 2 pts at most, easy A for most people

She seems extremely ignorant when it comes to topics such as gender and race equality and pushes her own beliefs and knowledge onto the rest of the class. She also reads straight from the textbook which is ridiculous. I wouldn't recommend her i you are an accepting and optimistic person because you will get very frustrated.

I agree with what everyone else is saying about her lectures and attendance policy, but I have to stress the grading off of three tests. You really must do well on them, or you will not pass. She's interesting and can be funny. She DOES include questions about the in-class movies on the tests (So don't skip watching them!)

Dr. Hatton is a very fair professor. She posted a free version of the textbook on UBlearns to help alleviate student costs and posts recordings of lectures online after class. Not the best lecturer, and your grade is the average of 3 exams, but all in all I'd recommend. Pretty easy for the most part.

She posts recordings of lectures online as well as word for word lecture notes of almost exactly what she said in class. She often shows movies in class as well and then usually puts a couple test questions about the movies. There's only 3 tests so one bad test will hurt you.

Professor Hatton has extensive knowledge and genuine interest on the material and makes lectures interesting. She is an excellent professor and is always willing to help you with whatever questions you may have. I had her for two courses and I would definitely take a course with her again

She is monotone and boring.Can never tell when she is lecturing and when she is quoting. Class time wasted watching on movies w/ 1-2q on test, while there are a lot of q. from the txt she never mention.Also post EVERYTHING on online textbook site, so can't buy the cheaper paper txt.3 test make up the final grade, 1 test can ruin up your whole grd

I would not reccmmend this professor who is taking Soc 101 because she just read her notes and there's only three exam that she give and no extra credit or assignment. you need to do really good in those exams. she's nice but when it comes to grading she's not.

Took her work class and this class is definitely a lot easier! Not a whole lot of actual notes, class is mostly watching videos which is nice for a change. Only 2 tests and a powerpoint which were not that difficult. Hatton is a good professor who wants you to learn and engage with the material..take her!

Posts the lecture notes, ppts and audio recordings of each class. 3 non cumulative exams, each ~40-50 multiple choice, your grade is the average of the 3. No curves or extra credit. I definitely recommend Erin, she's interesting to listen to and makes the material easy to understand, but if you don't do well on those tests you're screwed!

Took her for Socio 101, there's like 5 professors that teach since it's a gen ed. The only complaint I have is she told us we needed to buy the online code because we'd use it for hw, but the only thing she used it for is posting lectures (in text and audio). If you learn by textbook-reading, I'd recommend just buying the book, if not buy the code
