Jerry is awesome! He ends class once he's done with what he's teaching ( no busy work). I got an A on all 3 papers! Make sure to pay some attention in class and look over the study guides before taking the quizzes. Other than that understand that he only talks about JFK for the last half of the class. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU WANT A TYPICAL ENGLISH CLASS/ IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT JFK.

I loved this class. The stuff about JFK is interesting and the quizzes he gives are easy. Very helpful about the three papers you have to do. Gave a lot of days off and always lets you out early. I definitely recommend him!

Literally the greatest teacher ever. his quizzes are the same as his study guides, I get an A on every quiz. Quizzes take 5 mins and then he lets you leave class. You always get out early, I've never stayed the whole 50 minutes. His papers are creative and easy. JFK is a big portion because its the research paper. Takes Attendance. He's the best!!!

Half of the class is full of quizzes on the Kennedy Assassination and has nothing at all to do with English. You get out of class early and he is really helpful, but that's about the only kudos I can give him.

always lets class out early, short quizzes that are very easy if you study, 2 short papers, and a research paper on JFK. go to him for help to look at your paper before it is due. class was so laid back/chill I recommend him! sort of a tough grader, but his expectations are made clear. just put in the work and you will pass :)

You ALWAYS get out early. It was a fun atmosphere in the classroom and there are two short papers and then the JFK research paper. A few quizzes which were very easy if you looked over your notes. Hes very knowledgeable about JFK and has a passion for it. Dont slack off on the JFK paper and you will do fine.

Was a fun class. You always get early every class. There are two short papers at the beginning of the semester then the second half is strictly about JFK. It is very interesting subject to learn/write about. Dont slack off on the JFK paper and you will be fine in the class. There are a few quizes but they are very very easy.

Mr. Hansen is an awesome dude! He's very knowledgeable, and actually discusses with you instead of reading off power points. The atmosphere is really relaxed, and he allows 6 absences. He's a pretty hard grader, though, so don't slack on the big papers. All in all take him!

An incredible professor. No text book required and grades with common sense but may be considered hard. Very intelligent individual and understands that we are all human. JFK is an interesting subject and you must be willing to have an open mind.

Jerry is a cool guy and i didnt mind going to this class day to day. but he is sometimes lazy and doesn't always give you all the information you need to get a good grade. I got a C, but was hoping I would get a B but he didnt hook me up with a higher grade than i earned. he is cool, but take a different teacher if you arent that good at writing.

This class is pretty easy. Attendance isn't mandatory but if you don't go you will miss quizzes. Basically the entire second half of the class is on the JFK assassination and you have to write a final research paper on an aspect of it. There were two papers to write before that though but they were only 2-3 pages in length and were easy.

Quite simply, Jerry is the man! This class was hands-down my favorite class and Jerry is the best Professor i've had at Western, and is the nicest guy! Grades like a professor should, but if you get a head start and take your paper to him, he'll look over it. Great class, thanks Jerry!!

He's a good teacher but he is OBSESSED with the JFK assassination! You do a huge paper on it and he gives a final over JFK! He let's you miss class 4 times and he's an interesting man, but the JFK stuff is ridiculous!
