My favorite professor so far. Don't know why anyone thinks she is a pushover. Not true.

Ms. Ament is passionate. I have never had a professor "tell it like it is" the way she does. If you are a slacker, she knows it and does not suffer fools well. Get with the program. She is special.

You will think she is friendly. She is. You will think she is knowledgeable. She is. You will think she is a pushover. She is not. Do the work and enjoy the ride. No one else is like her.

Professor Ament is great. She knows film sound and music and leads good discussions. Take-home midterm essays, group project, take-home final. Gives feedback on essays. Film screenings and a book. Attendance is mandatory.

Film majors have to take this class. She is the only professor from the film industry so she gears it toward the film major. Other professors focus on film studies. She is the bomb. She gets it.

I loved Mrs. Ament! She's funny, nice, and caring. I never paid attention in her class and ended up with an A. She grades easily on the speech and her tests are super easy. I just did the study guide the night before. Super easy class overall, I would highly suggest taking her for an easy A

Really nice and funny! She tries to make everyone happy so she is kind of a push over. I love her power points as she designs them to make lecture "fun". Super easy tests and essays, and one speech. Best teacher ever!

Speech 4490 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Ament is great. I think whoever is afraid of political discussions should understand that this class is a gender in communication class. Politics is part of the subject. You can't avoid it. She is honest about her opinion and welcomes opposing views. I gave opposing views and she loved it. She is great. Very supportive.

SPCH 4490 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

Professor Ament is a genuine and unique person; however, her classes tend to always turn into politics rather than be about the subject. 2 tests, a paper, and a group project. Class is not terribly boring, but she may offend you if you have different beliefs than her. Very strong personality but gets along with most.

Speech 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Easy Class. Attendance is required. She designs her own power points and always tries to put humor into every class. Our class is a large lecture class, which is not a great format. Speeches are required. She is very funny.

SPCH1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Yes, this is a very easy class. Attendance is mandatory. Very little course work. Had online quizzes and homework that you could do until you get A. The only trade off for the easy A is having to listen to her rant about various things. Somedays, you never know what you're going to get. Very intense personality.

Great teacher. Doesn't like to stay on a topic if it is not important. She explains using elaborate examples and is very pleasant. She is strong, independent, and can be very convincing when she needs to be.

Film4780 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. Strong personality. She's very interested in the production and post prod of film in Atlanta. She understands that we're in a campus designed for theory students rather than production and she wants to change that. First class I've taken that actually showed me what film is all about. End of the year project was a ton of fun.

FILM1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hilarious, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Speak up in class and she'll love you. She has loads of experience. She grades fairly easy if you put in the effort. The first half hour or so of each class was spent watching a different movie, so it went by fast. Discussions are fun and interesting. Great course and great professor!
