JOUR2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is an such easy A. Do the weekly assignments which are not that hard every week and you will for sure get an A. I ended with an A- because I turned my final project in 4 days late but I guess she rounded up my grade to an A. Sometimes it can get a little boring because she lectures off power points. TAKE HER CLASS TO BOOST UP YOUR GPA =)

Definitely a class worth taking. Prof. Gail is a great teacher and makes the class enjoyable. We watched a lot of videos that were interesting and the quizzes were a piece of cake. She missed class 3 times and allowed us to have 3 absences to be fair. But honestly, I would not miss class if I were you. Her in class teachings are extremely helpful.

Jour 21a and b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She can be helpful but is absent most of the class. One quarter she missed 6 out of 24 meetings and another she missed 11 out of 24 meetings. Taking her classes can be easy if you keep up with the writings. If you are actually interested in the subject and want to learn, she's not the teacher for you.

JOUR 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Gail is a very nice professor. Take this class and you're guaranteed for an A. Make sure to do all the hw assignments and be on top of the quizes, so you don't need to take the final. Attendance is mandatory because it worths 100/1000. Very helpful. One group project and one research paper + presentation. They're piece of cake.

JOUR2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I can't believe people barely rated her. She is AWESOME!! She is very kind and the class material is interesting. The tests are piece of cake to anyone. She will tell you what's on the test beforehand. And there is 70 extra credits to do. If you want to have fun, spend just a little effort, learn a lot and get a A, this class is for you!

Easy class if you do the work. Quizzes are simple just pay attention in class and take down notes from her slides. Great Professor. BOOK IS NECESSARY as lectures reflect the book and your final research paper requires information from the text book. Do the assignments and follow the instructions and you will be fine.

JOUR2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Gail is awesome and very likeable. She has a lot of class discussion and is very personable. She relies on YouTube videos in her lectures too often and they get BORING. She assigns a LOT of work but none of it is hard. DONT BuY THE TEXTBOOK! You don't need it! Research paper; Easy (1000 words). Lots of extra credit offered! Semi-recommend
