"Respected by students" "Clear grading criteria"

He was a really good teacher. He made the lectures interesting and easy to understand. I really liked the class, three tests throughout the semester, they were ok as long as you study. He was pretty funny, and always let us out early. I would recommend taking his class.

Weather & Climate Online Course. This class might be easier in person and you must read the texts with a fine tooth comb. The Professor is there to help when you have a question (email), however his responses are often shorter than you would like -and he takes a long time to post grades so you have no idea where you stand.

Interesting class! Lots of terms to know but if you write down what he says in class it will be exactly what you will find on the test. He usually repeats definitions in other words (that's when you know that content will be on test) Don't miss class, labs and field trips and you'll get an A. I was very pleased with this professor.

I am surprised to see people give Mr. Morris average ratings. I just finished his class, and I can say that he is one of the best professors I have ever had. He knows his material very well and does an excellent job at explaining it. If you go to his lectures and labs, you will get an easy A. I would type more if I could.

Prof. Morris is a great teacher! He can explain science concepts better than any other teacher I've had. And he relates the material to things you know about, like going to the beach, whenever possible.

Took the hybrid class. His portion of the class was awful. He is always late posting homework but still left the same due dates. Frustrating...I thought the class was easy (others struggled)...except the fact he was late. This had an impact on my grade & dropped me to a B. Students are clueless. Good lab partners are hit & miss. Field trip issues.

very helpful. the field trips and labs were so much fun. the tests are really hard if you study his notes and do the questions at the end of the chapters in the book you should be fine.

This man is very nice and is passionate about was he does. However, he is NOT tech savvy AT ALL so taking his online course very frustrating. Videos are hard to load. It's the end of the semester and he still hasn't graded homework from week 2! And he will NEVER email you back. So, at this point, I have no idea how I'm doing in this class. A?! D?!

He is really bad at getting back to you through email- I don't usually have to, though, I took his class in online format and everything is explicitly stated. His online modules are open less than one week, late Wed-late Mon. Nothing is available for review after the submission date, only the graded assignments; which he doesn't comment on.

Excellent teacher. He makes the information easy to understand and his field trips are awesome. The tests are a little difficult but if you study you shouldnt have a problem getting an A. The entire class is on a curve, I got a 78% and still got an A. His labs are a little boring but overall I really enjoyed this class. VERY little use of textbook.

Took the hybrid class with Morris & Passarelli. Online section with Morris is horrible. So much work, strict grader, offers no feedback as to why you did poorly. His video lectures put you to sleep. The content is so far above what a science class at Saddleback should be. He needs to go teach at an Ivy League school. Don't buy the book, don't need.

(Hybrid) This class is horrible. I dread it and HIM! He's rude and he thinks he's funny when he's not. Field trips are not fun - don't listen to people. You seriously listen to his annoying voice and look at the water to distract yourself, and pray you get cell service.I don't suggest this class!

(Hybrid) I don't like this class, the labs are lame and SO boring. His voice is really annoying. He seems like a nice guy though. You have to put in as much effort as possible to try to get an A. I learned a lot, but I wouldn't take him again. Take this if you don't want to take harder science classes. Tavares reager is nice but she gets confused.

Prof. Morris is probably one of the best teachers i have ever taken. He is passionate and extremly knowledgable about the subject! Attendance is not mandatory but highly reccomended, your midterms and the final are based souly off the lectures. Never even touched my text book.

Kalon is incredibly intelligent and really enjoys explaining sciency things to his students. Despite his incredible educational background, he is not pretentious and makes geology as enjoyable as it can. Kalon is HOT and extremely caring. Hope to take another field study with him soon! ;)

Highly recommend going on his field trips- we had a lot of fun and he was really laid back the whole trip. I defintely plan on going on another one because it was one easy unit, all you have to do is take some notes and pictures and make a trip journal.

Good teacher, but his lectures seemed to drag on for hours. The labs were okay, it was nice having a visual aide at times. To be honest, I dreaded his class every week. Field trips were fun, but only because you were distracted half of the time by fish, and weren't really paying any attention...
