COMS103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The course would have been more useful if she stuck to the course material she was more about self help than communications. She would tell us about conspiracy theory as if it were fact. I don't think black history or feminism helps in the expanding of society if the focus is on self pity and mistrust.

Ms. Lewis is such a chiller! I was BAKED every day in that class and still got an A. One of the classes I took with her, we went up in front on the last day and told her what grade we thought we deserved, and she gave us whatever we said!

COMS103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I can honestly say she was one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. Really puts things into perspective and opens the mind of her students. I, as many others in the class, was not expecting it to be communications from a black perspective, but it turned out to be a great mind-opening surprise. I would highly recommend this teacher for any class!

She is a great teacher plain and simple. The class was NOT what I expected, but then again, it was not a class I expected to look forward to and I found myself always smiling afterward. She is a fountain of knowledge and love.

She teaches oral communication with a black perspective. I advice everyone who has is afraid to take this class to do it! She will change your life. She makes things easy and teaches you a lot in a short period of time not just about oral communication but about the world and how you perceive it. You just gotta attend all classes and do your speech

Have you ever searched for a teacher that opens the world for you? her teaching style is "higher education." Unlike boring teachers reading from a book, Mrs. Lewis bring a new world to teaching. I wish i had met her years ago.

Her class is relatively straight-forward and easy. If you do all the work it is an A. However, in terms of history, she a is a historical revisionist who often makes wild claims like the Europeans stole all of their inventions from Africa and that the Jews were originally black. Also if you are religious this class might be offensive.

Professor Lewis is kind and inspiring. She seems to be an easy grader. She does teach from an Afrocentric perspective. If you can handle that, you will get a great Professor!

SPEE103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Although Lewis may appear inspiring to many, she does not follow through with her own advice. She was absent of late to many classes with demanding perfect attendance from the class. The assignments were ambiguous and the dues date even more so. Most of the class agrees with her so if you try to present an alternate perspective she will interrupt.

She sees people, and cares for each individual and thats more important than any knowledge you can get... but she does also have knowledge and wisdom as well...She is an advocate for equality to all- races and genders, the world can learn much from her...and this is coming from a white guy...whose eyes have been opened ;)

SPCH103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Instructor said that Americans had no right to criticize or judge cultures that mutilate the genitals of prepubescent girls without their consent, because some girls in America have plastic surgery done at their parents expense. Absolutely disgusting comparison, I dropped the class soon after.

good points with modern issues, butdoesnt know history and is revisionist, said Africans discovered the Americas before Europeans, built the pyramids in Mexico, the slaves brought to the us were christian africans from ethiopia, not west africans of varying degrees of islam and animism and sharks followed slave ships looking for meals, smart sharks

Ms. Lewis is the best teacher that I have had so far at Mesa College. She is wise, intelligent and cares about YOU! She is the most loving teacher I have ever met. Her class is not hard but you learn A LOT about yourself and how to give a speech. Easy A if you do the work. I HIGHLY reccommend her. TAKE HER CLASS!!!! you won't regret it.

You will learn so much and really enjoy her presence. She is not tough and I got an A in her speech 103. Might sound strange but she is a blessing to learn from!
