Super chill, funny, and interesting. All notes were online, so you can just go to class and listen about pirates without a ton of stress. Awesome professor, take his classes.

All in all it's a very interesting class. If you really take the time to think about the material you'll see how relevant it is to the world in the grand scheme of things. The teacher is excellent. My GTF was very helpful.

Very entertaining lecturer who still manages to teach you a lot. Lecture material is straight forward and the exams were online. Going to lecture isn't mandatory but they're fun and make the class a whole lot easier. Also, a lot of exam questions are based on the readings, which can be somewhat hefty at times.

Lecture isnt mandatory, but I find going to lecture incredibly entertaining and helpful. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject--pirates. He is constantly cracking jokes. All online tests, so pants are optional. Also, the GTF I was assigned brought us snacks every week and usually let us go 20 mins early. I totally recommend

Dr. Scher is the man. The course material is interesting, but he makes it even cooler. His lectures are never boring and he is a funny guy. A lot of assigned reading, but quizzes and tests were extremely fair to the reading he assigned. Not hard to earn an A or B

I liked his class, at times he was really funny and has great stories and examples. As long as you go to lecture you only have to read the ethnographies in the book,not all the chapters.

Super entertaining & absolutely hilarious! Knows the field of Cultural Anthropology well, and has the best stories. He seems like an awesome guy. I would be his best friend if I could.

Very easy to follow, and he explains what he's talking about in a very clear way. Also pretty funny, and easy to talk to outside of class.

Great Professor! very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject (his specialty is the Caribbean) and lectures were great because he's hilarious! If you get a chance to take a class from him DO IT!

He is a good lecturer and you definitely NEED to attend every lecture to understand everything. Writing a 2 page paper every week was the only thing i disliked. the midterm and final weren't too bad

His lectures are interesting to go to and he is a really funny guy. The two tests aren't bad as long as you go to every lecture and read. But the papers every week can get annoying
