"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Respected by students"

Make sure you show up to class, because you're gonna fail otherwise. Not even kidding. But come to class, participate in the class discussions, and consider yourself bettered as a human being for being in this class. Cuz he will challenge all of your opinions, play devil's advocate, and make you respect him for it. Study and you will pass the class

SOCI 4931 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-
"Participation matters" "Big time extra credit" "Get ready to read"

He makes class interesting, but he has quite the ego. In our class, the only book we bought was one that he had written (it had nothing to do with the topic of the course). He had his review his book and review a documentary that he made, but other than that you only have a mid-term and a final exam.
