"Would take again" "Get ready to read" "Inspirational"

A fantastic course with a professor that truly broadened my ability to enjoy and appreciate movies. Whereas I once enjoyed movies as a movie, now I enjoy them as much as I would a five course meal, now that I know how to discern different techniques, tastes, and themes in film. One of the best courses I have ever taken.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Amazing lectures" "Get ready to read"

He is amazing. Very energetic, animated, opinionated, and fun. Without him being an awesome professor, the class would be a drag. Sure, it's every kid's dream to watch a movie every class, but you have to take comprehensive notes in the dark. Short quizzes on the reading every week, which is 30-50 pages. Don't skip because your grade will plummet.

AML3031 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I'm not even going to sugar coat this. I was a 4.0 student, and with this class, I literally told myself that I would be happy passing this class with a C. But keep on, it seems terrifying and impossible, his quizzes seem like mini anxiety attacks, but if you do what he asks, the class is phenomenal. I've never enjoyed a class more than his.

Super intense professor. The ideas brought up in discussion provoke thought and conversations after class. Dr. Mauro is extremely knowledgeable and well informed on the subject matter. I highly recommend any class you can take w/ him.

I would highly recommend taking Professor Mauro! he is an extremely enthusiastic and engaging teacher who actually cares about the material and his students. He is fun, and his class follows a great, open format but attendance is mandatory and be prepared to read and work for your A.

Okay. Professor Mauro is great. Be ready to read and write a lot, but also be prepared to actually learn. He is extremely enthusiastic with the way he teaches. Some days he literally would be furiously pacing and jumping around. Attendance is mandatory, but this isn't a class you'd ever want to miss. He's great.

Professor Mauro is awesome! When you first start his class you might be taken aback by his quirkiness and enthusiasm for the course but it's those characteristics which make this class interesting. He let us pick our readings at the beginning of the year. So helpful and tells you exactly what to write for your papers. TAKE HIM FOR SURE! He is great

Mauro's enthusiasm alone inspired me to thrive in this class. I've never had a professor that was more willing to dig deeper into the text to really provide a clear understanding. He will take your view into account, so long as you back it up. In order to do well you must have read the texts assigned, and engage in the conversations in class. 10/10

If you don't do the reading that is assigned for homework 3 times, be prepared to get a C.He gives tons of quizzes in the beginning of the semester, and by the time you realize you need to straighten up, he will stop giving quizzes. If you want to save your GPA, dip.

The daily quizzes, long readings, and many papers will discourage a multitude of students from taking Mauro. That's a shame, because he can make any reading material become the world's most interesting topic; even Puritan literature!

He warns you that there is a lot of work on day 1. I was shocked how many people didn't show up again after that. Yes, you have to do the readings. There is a quiz EVERY class. But you're in college now. 7 papers total, short but due 3 at a time then 4 at a time. Just be thinking of things to write about throughout the semester so you don't panic.

Not a blow off class. 30-50 pages of reading every week, with 3 question quizzes, watching lots of films. It's interesting content, it's just not an easy class.

Fosters interest, respects and engages with students, humorous, and knowledgeable. He'd much rather start an academic conversation than lecture or listen to his own voice at the expense of students. Will definitely take him again.

Jason Mauro was one of the best at UNF when I was there in the mid 90s. He cares enough to pay each student individual attention and learn what what he or she cares about.

Makes class interesting. He loves feedback and appreciates every thing that students contribute to class. Lots of reading but if you do the reading, you'll be fine
