"There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

Dr. Tezli is very down to earth and really opens your eyes to new views. She is well organised and helpful. Grading is fair for the two midterms and the paper but the final was way too specific. Read the textbook as exam wording draws from it (especially the terms section). Lectures had a lot of visual and real life examples. Overall a great prof!

"Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Hilarious"

Honestly my fav prof!!! She's really funny, blunt and sarcastic. But it adds to her lecture, which I really enjoyed! She keeps everyone engaged and if you want to pass you have to attend and pay attention! She purposely mentions things that will be on the test if she notices people are skipping so go to class! I'd totally take more classes with her

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Absolutely horrible expeince. Tests are rediculously hard. Her expectations are unrealistic. Unless your willing to completely digest material inside out, good luck.

"Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Amazing lectures"

What a prof. Everything from her wonderful sense of humour to all the hilarious and inappropriate videos we watched made me actually look forward to class. She also does an excellent job at making you really think about society and I can honestly say that taking her class made me have a whole new perspective on life. Cannot recommend her enough.

"Would take again" "Amazing lectures" "Clear grading criteria"

Dr. Tezli is an awesome prof, every week I'd look forward to going to her lectures. She was very clear on what we'd be tested on for the exams and was really helpful when I e mailed her. The course itself was really interesting and the work load wasn't excessive. Pay attention, memorize the slides, textbook definitions and you'll do well.

"Clear grading criteria" "Respected by students" "There for you"

Dr. Tezli was overall a good prof, she was clear in her expectations and the material was not hard. Some of the videos she showed however definitely did not pertain to the course, and were included more for shock factor.

"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "Hilarious"

Her lectures were great and involved a lot of discussions and interesting topics. Often used good lecture materials like videos, in-class assignments, graphs, etc. She used a lot of real-life examples and I genuinely enjoyed this class and learned a lot.

I love Annette, any opportunity to take her class should be a no-brainer. GO TO CLASS. She is one for (easy) surprise quizzes or dropping useful notes for tests which are not in the book.

"Amazing lectures" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Dr. Tezli is very engaging and charismatic as a professor. Her lectures are important as not all of the readings are relevant to the exams. The midterms are difficult but as long as you attend lectures and tutorials you will do well.

Annette is great! She's passionate about what she teaches and she offers a very honest opinion which can be very real and sometimes very hilarious! Her classes really test your sociological knowledge and help make you a better student. Do the readings!

I always look forward to her lectures. She may come across as abrasive, but its just her humour. Always tells great stories that incorporate well into her lectures. Great public speaker. Attend class! Tests are fair, study and you'll do well.

"Respected by students" "Inspirational" "Hilarious"

I have had the opportunity to have taken several Sociology courses with Dr. Tezli. She is prompt, organized, understanding, and an inspirational educator and a highly informed sociologist. In regards to 303 specifically, there were several essays and journal entries required for the class. Do not let this deter you from the class, however!

Absolute best prof I've ever had at uofc. I had her for soci 201 in Spring 2014 and loved it. She's passionate and a very well informed speaker. The TA was awesome as well.

Dr. Tezli is awesome. I took my first class with her in Winter 2014 and have had her for a Spring Course as well. I have been trying to take as many SOCI classes as I can with her. She is informative and made me want to come to Spring classes even when the sun was out. She marks fairly. Come to class if you can because it is worth it, great prof!

Best Prof. Ever! Really helpful and crystal clear. Always ready for class. Original and funny. You must read the textbook for the tests. Tests include multiple choice q's and short written answers which you need to know the key terminology for. Everyone loved her and the class was full the whole semester because she keeps it interesting. She Rocks!

SOCI 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tezli is usually a clear instructor. However, she does not properly state what she wants to read on an essay. She told me my final paper was good and proceeded to give me a below average grade, meaning that she wasn't clear on what she wanted. Overall I'm mixed about Tezli. Avoid SOCI 303 but take 201 with her.
