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.

SPCH1311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.
