INT 200 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B
"Tests are tough" "Participation matters" "Tough Grader"

Attendance is MANDATORY & part of grade. Just a midterm and final, which are both short response, no multiple choice, pretty tough. Couple of papers. Reading is mandatory, get the textbook. She is not very understanding. Method of lecture is discussion. Take her if you are interested in the subject matter. If you aren't, you'll HATE it.

INT 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

She's super cool. Her class is really easy and interesting. The class is just one big open discussion so it's not boring. There is never any homework. Only 4 mini exams and 3 papers. Mini exams are usually 3-5 short answer questions that she tells you in advance so you can prepare for them.

INT200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

She goes off topic alot and often just teaches via us reading book ourselves andlearning the material on our own, which she doesnt really discuss that much in detail. She would be a much better teacher if she talked more about the subject matter of the chapters we were working on. We do have very interesting intellectual conversations in her class.

POS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I dunno who thought Kauffman was a hard grader, but if you're a competent writer and can retain the reading, you'll be fine. My only real complaints are the crappy textbook we used, and her extremely leftist teaching agenda, but that's to be expected from most PoliSci professors.

I have taken two classes with Dr. Kauffman and enjoyed both of them. As long as you go to class and show that you are putting in effort she is pretty easy to get along with. Her classes are based around group discussion, so be ready to participate in class conversations. Thought provoking professor

POS201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

brenda is an extremely nice person, but her class is not for the faint of heart. she will rip your papers apart and leave you feeling like an idiot, if you don't go to her office to have her look them over beforehand. she is extremely helpful and is always willing to sit down and talk about any questions or papers you have.

The best professor at Flagler. She is absolutely brilliant. Kauffman cares so much about her students and will make sure they succeed. I walk out of her classes feeling substantially more informed about the world. I will continue to take her classes until I graduate.

She was an awesome professor, and I would consider having her as my teacher over again, especially if your interested in Political science.She makes the class up-beat and it does consist of somewhat a lot of lectures but there always interesting to learn about. Only a few papers in her class but she is more than welcome to help out if you need it.

Dr. Kauffman is very intelligent, and her passion for the subject is contagious. Certainly she is a professor worth taking. I do, however, think she could improve her lecture style, particularly in guiding students to conclusions through critical thinking.
