soc 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Attendance not mandatory but I suggest you go because it is easy to forget about listening to the recorded lecture. Half of meetings are actual lecture while the other half is movies. Just go, stay awake, take notes on the movies,use the study guide and study attentively.

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.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C+

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.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.
