Pretty fun class. You DO have to read the book though. Lots of videos that explain the ideas in the book. Exams were done online too.

I went into this class with little to no understanding of what Sociology is. I'm coming out considering majoring in Sociology. I'm very glad this course was offered. It is an important subject to study. The material was very informative, and the information I was given in this course has and will continue to be useful throughout my every day life.

He seems to be a quite the liberal, he tries to be a comedian more than teach the class. He will not help you if you have a problem nor will he give you an explanatory email. Do not take this class unless you are independent and love doing lots of work.

He is clear with what you need to know and explains it so you remember it. He also gives lots of extra credit so you can drop a couple of assignments if you need to focus on another class. Do you reading outlines and you will be ready for tests. Be careful and have facts if you are religious. The book and the teacher are anti-religious values.

He is a great professor, wasn't sure how he was going to be in the first two weeks since he appeared to be kinda strict and tough, but after the first few weeks he opens up. If you do your reading outlines you can easily pass.

One of the least effective teachers I've had. Doesn't know how to get the class engaged. That could be because he is condescending. Didn't enjoy this class; Usually left feeling a bit angry. Text book is very far to the left. I can't say I trust what I've learned to be completely accurate, but the class did get me thinking & questioning more.

This class should be required for everyone. I learned so much and Professor Armstrong does a great job of presenting the material in a way that really makes you think. Great class!

This class was really interesting, and professor armstrong relates well to students. You do have to read the book to do well, but class is pretty fun.

He is a GREAT teacher. He makes it fun to be in his class while you learn and get as passionate about the subjects as he is.

Jake did very well with giving us info that was related to the subject to help us connect with our own lives. But I can not recommend him. There was a lot of busy work. Syllabus was not updated until you were doing it. No time to plan out your work in conjunction with the rest of your life. Had no idea what to study for with exams.

Summer class had a heavy workload, but it was very well organized. First two weeks were hard, but once I got into the groove, the workload was easier to handle. Great instructor - highly recommended.

A wonderful professor to take online. Most online classes are impersonal and Professor Armstrong takes the time to make videos and find videos that really help explain the information. Wonderful class!

This was a really good class. Lectures were interesting. Some group work, 4 exams, and a big final paper. Mr. Armstrong was a great teacher and he really went out of his way to make the class fun and interesting. I learned a ton!

The content was very interesting, there was a high work load but it was doable. Jake was not helpful at all and rarely responded to emails or questions posted in the "Ask a question forum". If you must take this class from him you must be an independent student, do not rely on him for any help or clarity. He also gave us work over SPRING BREAK!

jake didn't know the majority of the students names by the end of the semester. Many times he refused to answer questions about assignments and won't round up grades even when they are 1/10 of a point away from a higher letter grade even if you have attended every class. He was extremely rude at times. Lacking many qualities a prof. should have

Absolutely loved this professor. He engaged the class and made learning really fun. I was always looking forward to his class. Wish I could take more classes from him. I definitely recommend him.

Professor Armstrong is awesome! He is an articulate, energized professor. He uses various, contemporary forms of media to help clarify the textbook. He is available all the time for questions through Skype, cell phone, or in person. He keeps you engaged in the material and his lectures are never boring!

When I first started at CWI I didn't know what I wanted to major in. Professor Armstrong's class helped me make up my mind. One of the best classes I've ever had! I highly recommend it.
