CSCL3175 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great and entertaining teacher. He might engage in sophistry at times, but what I learned in his class I have been able to apply to many other courses, particularly English classes. I found Gary to be extremely helpful and easy to get in contact with outside of class. The course and Gary are not for the easily offended, which he is upfront about.

I learned nothing new from this course. Thomas is a blowhard who treats us like HS students. Not recommended.

This class went beyond learning rote information. This class gave truly insightful knowledge to me that will last a lifetime. Although not for everyone, Thomas' lectures are deep and intriguing. Take this class if you genuinely want to learn.

Comedy Text and Theory was one of my favorite classes at the U. Gary Thomas is a sharp, funny guy, and really approachable.

CSCL 3472,3175 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The best teacher I have had. He actually encourages people to think, and treats everyone like they are on the same level as him. You have to go to class in order to do good. Critiques: None when i had him for Gay Men & Homophobia in the American Culture. But for Comedy in Text and Theory - the multiple choice on the exams were often unfair in my opinion, and the TA's did not always grade the same.
