COMM 2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class was very easy and an A can be achieved with little effort. If you are bothered by disorganization, however, this class is not for you. His notes are incredibly confusing to the organized mind and he is very inconsistent with grading and deadlines. This class felt more like group therapy and I don't feel that I learned anything.

Comm 2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Do not take this class if you want to be happy with life. He is very disorganized,grades slow, and will tell you about assignments last minute. He doesn't cover all the material on the test, and forgets what he talked about last time. Doesn't go over study guide for test, and gives it to you last minute. Do not take him.

Really easy class, you take tests a group. Clair teaches well and is passionate about the class. I feel like he cares about his students. My only complaint is at times it feels disorganized.

COMM 2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

So glad I took this class! The papers aren't really papers, more like journal entries. He's really helpful outside of class and his lectures are more like interactive discussions where you learn a ton about communicating with people in a healthy way. It helped me so much with my personal life. I wish I could take it every semester!

He teaches in a way that doesn't make you feel like you are getting lectured. It is a very interactive class. It is time consuming and there are a lot of papers to write. You need to read the book, take notes from his lectures and write your papers. Then you have to do community service with a group. His tests are tricky! But I learned a ton!

COMM 1010 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 guy was awesome! I highly recommend his class to anyone and everyone! You have to write papers at least once a week, but most of them are relatively short. Come to class as much as you can since tests and lots of important info are done in class. And don't get behind on papers! That killed me for awhile.

Clair is a phenomenal teacher, and a quality human being. He treated us graduate students with such respect, and we all came away with life skills for conflict resolution. He's not as organized as some, but makes up for it in his genuine care for students.

This is the best Communications class that I've taken. Clair understands the material and is very clear. You learn a LOT about communications and he will teach it in fun and easy ways to understand. Definitely recommend anyone and everyone to take this class.

By far one of the best professors at WSU. He is passionate about every aspect in the classroom and shares his own personal experiences. If you end up here his story about 9/11 you'll be amazed. The course was interesting but with Clair as the professor it was AWESOME! Hands down best teacher for COMM 2110 or public speaking.

This was a great class. Clair was an amazing teacher! He made the material easy to understand and relateable to you. I bet if Clair taught math, it would be the best math class too! He is very personable and cares about his students. His tests are hard, but he doesn't try to trick you, he just wants you to really know the material. Take this class!

This is a really great class and the teacher is really good. I wouldn't say that attendance is mandatory but it will really frustrate your other group members if you don't come. The tests are kind of hard but just take notes in class and skim through the text book. He won't put anything on the test that he didn't go over in class.

Clair is amazing! Totally recommend it. It is a pretty easy class! You do get put into a group ad have to do a service project, which I found frustrating. But for the actual class material I loved it! Clair is so passionate and what he teaches is actually applicable to everyday life!

Clair is a guy! He sincerely cares about each of his students and creates a secure environment. There is a mandatory 12 hour group service project. The class is pretty easy though. Just do the weekly journal assignments and you will be fine. Attendance isn't mandatory but you won't want to miss. He is a great teacher. Highly recommend him!!!
