Soc 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I have had him for two classes. The first one I thought he was pushing opinions but the second class I took I was amazed. He says things he knows will upset you. Not to upset you but to make you think and to stand up for what you believe. He loves the mind games and is exactly what a soc teacher should be. He is wonderful and always willing to help

Soc101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The most eloquent man I've ever met. He is able to explain important issues better than anyone else (he makes more sense than my pastor when he talks about religion).

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You don't have to do the reading for every class, but bring texts to class b/c sometimes you have to comment on the reading. The test was mostly easy, but there's no review guide. Also, don't study just your notes, know all the terms and definitions listed in the textbook. The only "important" people he'll mention in class.

He made my freshman year fun and interesting. However, be prepared for a very liberal man who likes to force his opinion on his students. He's funny about it though, so I really didn't mind.

soc 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

he's easy to study for but i think he tries to push his opinion on you sometimes, if he gets talking on something he won't stop until his point is made clear
