PHIL184 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wike was an AMAZING Professor! Her class for me, was overall pretty easy. 2 exams. 1 final and i want to say 6 quizzes, lowest one is dropped. She is very clear on what she expects you to know for the quizzes and exams. The only downside is it's all in essay format. Alot of reading to do! And lectures were dry. But a great teacher! TAKE HER!

Wike overall was very good, but an extremely tough grader. It is next to impossible to get perfects, or near perfect scores on anything. I am not at all interested in the healthcare field (history major). I learned a lot, but be prepared to not get a A, and to work your ass off.

She's a very good professor, extremely knowledgeable and respectful. However, the workload for this 100-level class is ridiculous. This class was harder than my organic chemistry. There are many requirements and the readings are long. Some of the reading assignments were barely discussed in class. She has a tough grading approach.

I recommend her. I've never understood philosophy but she explains things really well. Leads great class discussions. Covers everything in the book so not much of a need to read. Hard grader but if you're having trouble, go to office hours. Over-explain things in your tests. She wants as much info from you as possible and won't assume your answers.

Took her for civic engagement. Great class, and I'm a business major. Not too hard, but you have to listen well in class and take good notes; no need to read the book! Civic engagement is a lot of fun, you get to volunteer at a hospital or other med institution.

Dr. Wike is a very knowledgeable in her area and made this class something I enjoyed learning about. She grades kind of hard, but if you put in a good amount of effort you will do well. If you are pre-med or anything of that nature I would recommend this class because it brings up relevant issues!!!

She is a pretty good professor. There is a lot of discussion in the class so go over the assigned readings. 1 paper, 6 pop quizzes, 2 tests. She is always willing to help you during office hours and she offers extra credit! The class covers a lot of controversial and interesting issues.

ethics of education is sooo boring. she is very monotone and unclear. the tests are ridiculous (and i went to class and studied). the readings are ambigious and very boring. the only fun part of the class is going to teach at the school. and that's mostly bc dr. wike isn't talking. she's very smart, just boring.avoid if possible

Prof. Wike is a very knowledgable prof! however, the material is not as easy to grasp if you aren't an education major. The majority of the class gets B's. If you're ok with this, take the class. Lots of reading, but overall GOOD class! 3 quizzes, 2 papers, a group project, and a final!

Dr. Wike is such a nice lady and she makes the class extremely interesting. I took the class a year ago and still remember most of the readings because they leave an imprint on you!! She does a very good job preparing her class especially her reading selections and her witt and inteligence are clearly shown in her classes. Take her. I love her!!!!!

PHIL 285: ET TE Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The lectures were very boring for ethics for teachers. I had trouble staying awake through most of this class despite it not being in the morning. There were a couple of short papers and exams that determined the grading. The best aspect was working with the Swift children.

I thought she was a great intro to phil prof. She gives the basics you need to do other philosophy. 3 papers- 2 pages, 2 tests-straight out of notes 1 final. defend your position well on papers, give examples from text and make sure you give your own position on the topic cause thats how you do phil
