PS 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Really great prof. Great personality and actually knows how to teach. Lecture did a good job of explaining any confusion from readings. GSI's were also really awesome. Went to see him for Office Hours and he gave me a lot of insight in the Poli Sci field. One of the best professors I've dealt with in my time at Michigan.

POLSCI 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Just read the textbook and take lots of notes. After reading a chapter go back and type up answers to the chapter end questions. The tests are almost 100% based on those chapter end questions. Stay awake and pay attention in class. If you do all of that getting an A+ is easy. The essays are so easy if you actually pay attention in class.

POLSCI 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He was a somewhat engaging lecturer. However, the majority of the stuff he discusses in class is directly from his textbook. Grades on papers and exams are arguably arbitrary, and he does not seem that interested in actually helping students on an individual basis.

POLSCI 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He genuinely cares about his students and their success. Although the material is a bit dry and repetitive, it's a relatively good course. Morrow also has a sense of humor and is very helpful in office hours. If you want a relatively easy course with a low workload and a good professor, this course is for you.

POLSCI 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Morrow is a great lecturer and really knows his stuff. The textbook used in class was written by Morrow and is very important in class. Lecture is not mandatory but is very helpful in reinforcing the materials from readings and is sometimes enjoyable. Great professor overall.

Polsci 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great lecturer with a sense of humor. Level of engagement depends on GSI, as they each have their own requirements for assignments. Overall really interesting class, although mostly based on theory instead of current events.

POLSCI 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great lectures and usage of the textbook (that he wrote himself). Very clear and passionate, covers a wide range of topics within World Politics. Assignments are moderately challenging and grading usually reflects efforts.

POLSC160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Overall this was an average class. Morrow's lectures were not boring, but they also were not interesting. I did most of my learning in the discussion classes. The book was totally unnecessary, as the material was taught in lecture and in discussion. Papers are graded somewhat harshly. Professor Morrow is a nice and sometimes funny guy.
