Would frequently leave us alone in the class period. Gave us 20 minutes for the midterm. most people failed. Directions unclear. Waste of time. He doesn't believe we should be graded, but then fails half the class. If you want to fulfill credits do not take him he will ruin your gpa.

Absolutely recommend Prof Furr to anyone who has any real interest in literature! He may come off as intimidating at first because of his appearance and ivy league background but he is just the sweetest man ever. Encourages group discussion which I love. Not difficult. Homework is the main part of your grade and it isn't hard. Furr is the greatest!

The guy is awesome, if you are willing to think for yourself, instead of letting fox news think for you. I can't wait to attend his class again!

Years later, Grover Furr still stands out in my mind as one of the finest professors MSU has to offer.

So there's this: As a DIRECT result of Professor Furr's Intro to Journalism class, I got my first real newsroom job (in 1987), which led to my second newsroom job, which led to better and better jobs lo these 25 years. Is he a bit of an oddball? Sure. But if you can get past that, he has a lot to offer, and I'll always be indebted to the man.

The professor was incredibly dull and uninspiring as a lecturer. He managed to kill my interest in literature. He's entitled to his weird political views, but what I care about is how well he conveys his knowledge of literature. It was a great disappointment.

There is quite a bit of reading, but that is what you expect going into an English course. You have to read though in order to pass his class. You have to talk in a class discussion about readings. Two papers about the books we read and a final. Furr is not as bad as he is put out to be

ALL about encouraging students to THINK FOR THEMSELVES! The discussion groups he puts us in definitely help with that. Some of the readings/assignments can get a little repetitive, but overall very intelligent and insightful. It's OK to disagree with his political views, but look past his teaching style and you'll see he does mean well.

One of the most honest professors I have every come across... If you are interested in exchanging and learning (both ways) both English language and history, I would really recommend the professor Furr

LOVE HIM!! He is so funny and smart. The subject is boring and dull but as long as you do the work, show up to class, and bring the material then you'll pass easily!

I have NEVER taken a worst professor in my life. His attitude is horrible and he purposely makes the students feel bad. he is not understand AT ALL. He does not teach just has you do discussion groups the whole time. DO NOT take his class!!!!!!!

Absolutely horrible. Everything was done by email. Homework was useless. The class had nothing to do with its title--"the coming of age theme." It was about politics and communism. I am NEVER taking a class taught by him again.

He is a harsh grader, I usually liked literature classes but this guy will have you reading novels in a very short amount of time! HW is due at 8 pm before class, nice guy but will never take again.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here & give the man serious accolades. I had him there in 1985 for World Literature, and he made you go off campus to get the books because they were cheaper. He's a socialist, but so what? I learned a different viewpoint from my own. Wrote a paper a week, but it taught me how to write well. You have it easier now!

very easy teacher! homework every class, but it's very easy and quick. One research paper and a final online.very smart. he knows what he's talking about. lectures can be very boring so make sure you bring your laptop! attendance isn't mandatory; just email him before class and he'll excuse you. If you do your work, this class should be an easy A.
