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

He was a horrible teacher. He cut off people in the middle of their question, was rude to us HS kids, and he didn't really teach anything that couldn't be read from the book. I wasn't particulary interested in speech but he made it even more unappealing. One of the only redeeming qualities of this clas were the take home tests and no homework.

Being on his good side (as in you show up to class on time everyday, take notes, listen, talk to him, and do well on everything in class) then he's a great professor, and even funny too! I liked him only sometimes when he came off as rude when people were trying to talk forever and he would start to glaze over and interrupt you. But I did like him.

This is the type of teacher that will teach you a lot about yourself. If you notice that you share some of the similar negativity that this teacher emits, then perhaps it is time to change yourself and go in the opposite direction before you become a persona non grata such as he.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. He is rude, fake, and patronizing. Only good thing was the 1 open book test, and 3 take home tests. Other then that he's a HORRIBLE professor. Cuts you off, sometimes just ignores questions,grades extremely hard on speeches. Expects a perfect speech or he WILL deduct points. Ugh I can just go on and on, DON'T TAKE HIM.

He's fairly easy to get along with, but DO NOT CROSS HIM. Because any mercy he had will vanish. The book is only really needed for the tests, and all the tests after the first one were take homes so that is always nice. He hates people who are late/absent and will not allow make up tests/presentations (unless you have a nice track record with him).

If you want to compete with students in other classes for spots in programs don't take this class - you wont get an A unless you are a topnotch public speaker, Mr.Jackson notices EVERYTHING a speaker does. 4 tests all open book, 5 speeches, 3 extra points for attending every lecture. I will be taking Speech again for a better grade.

Of the 30-40 profs I've had at ACC he is THE worst. He is a ****, bigot. avoid taking his class unless you enjoy being demeaned, talked down to, and treated like a child.

Dr. Jackson is a great professor. Now he will not tolorate tardiness, or lazy students. Very strict on his speeches. He however lets you know ahead of time what he expects. In fact in our class he repeats it make sure that you have no excuses. He mentioned early on not to miss his class- come prepared your not in high school !!! Great class...

I understand where this professor is coming from. He is very strict and enforces his rules. His main problem is that he is very rude if you make a mistake. He does NOT teach you how to give speeches. He tells you what to include in your speeches. He grades you for how you give the speech, but he didn't tell you how to give it in the first place.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THE OTHER REVIEWS! This teacher is great! He makes class fun and enjoyable. I looked forward to attending his class. When it comes down to making your speeches, DO NOT MESS UP. You will be given no mercy. Some guy forgot his sources and was not allowed to speak! Not prof jacksons fault, it was the students fault! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Dr. Jackson was by far the most difficult teacher I have ever had in my academic career. However, I thought he did a really great job of teaching the material and I really liked the emense challenge.

Awful, terrible man. The worst part is--he's the dean of the department. I see him around campus, and he still gives me the creeps.

HE IS THE WORST TEACHER ANYBODY COULD EVER HAVE AND WOULDNOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE UNLESS U WANT TO BE SCREWED. NOT HELPFUL, VERY MEAN ESP. TO FOREIGNERS - CRITICIZES THEM ON THEIR PRONOUNCIATION WHICH I THINK IS NOT FAIR. THE ONLY GOOD THINK IS ALL HIS TESTS ARE HOME TAKE BUT DON'T HELP MUCH FOR THE TOAL GRADES SINCE MOST POINTS ARE ACTUALLY ON THE

He loves himself. The negative stuff you read is all true, and then some. He is burned out. He should have been retired years ago. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS.

Hands down worst professor I have ever met. On a near-constant power trip. No concern for his students. Doesn't show up to his own office hours, nor does he return phone calls or e-mails. Doesn't follow his syllabus. Often late to class. Handwriting illegible. Has sent multiple girls crying from his classroom as he callously lectured on.

Dr. Jackson is the type of professor that will make you have nightmares about physically harming him. He is not the type of teacher that shows that he cares about his students success. He sucks!

Not a hard class but has a ton of work. I didn't really care for this professor at all. All-in-all he was pompous jerk. But you have 5 speechs and all the test are either take home or open book. Speeches are very difficult to make A's on.

Forget about all the other comments he is a GREAT teacher and is always there for extra help when you need it.It is a very easy class to pass and he is also a GREAT teacher. This is my favorite class that i have took this semester, because he actually cares.

STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS. Has a will to uphold his ego. Very rude attitude. Does not follow his syllabus. Handwriting is impossible to read. Feedback useless. Inaccurate evaluation of speeches. Randomly brings up unsuitable topics to the class (i.e. sex). Talking to Dr. Jackson is like talking to a brick wall, with the wall being less ignorant.
