SOC 100-102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She very knowledgeable in her field, However she is unhelpful in feedback on essays. I was asked to rewrite and essay, but she did tell me (other that it was to general)what she wanted the see fixed. I would have liked to see her be a little more helpful with that. She do laugh at her own jokes, but it 's not problematic.

SOC209 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class was hard solely because of the work. There is a lot of paper writing. The textbook is a must since you're going to need the terms to write your papers. She was hard to get a hold of and I didn't always know what my grade was since She didn't tell us. On the other hand she is very knowledgeable about her subject but it can get boring.

SOCSOC Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Everyone elses Soc class is fun. This is all boring lecture, no activities or soc experiments you'd expect. Very hard tests. GL on staying awake. lol those other two "good" quality reviews are fake. almost no assignments to buffer your grade from hard tests. No passion

SOC100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Reed is a great instructor who really cares for her students and wants them to succeed. The lectures do tend to drag on and on, though, so don't take her class if you can't handle it. You NEED THE BOOK in order to pass. & Yes she does laugh at her own jokes but a lot of them are actually funny. It's not her fault you don't understand them.

can be tough, you have to study both the book and the lecture slides, demanding but if you get into it, the course is not that hard and she is well read in her subjects, does offer to make time to help but be prepared because she will ask you questions about the reading

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

brutal.skip taking notes off her slides, go off the book. She makes horrible tests, sign of a lazy teacher. to know how she is, ask your mother to lecture you on something then go on a tangent every 5 seconds. 30% of the class dropped. Bad time management, never finishes through her slides, AVOID. I'm a 4.0 student,not some lazy student complaining

soc100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you have trouble in the class she is not the instructor for you. She will send you off to a tutor before she will sacrifice any of her time. Her lectures are kind of boring. Like the other person said she laughs at her own jokes because nobody else does. I would recommend taking another instructor if at all possible.

Professor Reed is definitely unique. She has her own sense of humor and laughs at her own jokes. But she's down to earth and understandable. Attendance is mandatory and her tests aren't easy. But the class itself isn't difficult. Show up and study every once in a while, and you'll do fine.
