He's so cool, he made the lectures so interesting and I really enjoyed them. I ran into a little trouble and he helped me out a lot. I'll remember this man forever, he's such a great guy and he's hilarious too.

He is an interesting person but he literally only talks about himself. The whole class is focused on him and his accomplishments. I think its awesome to be proud of your accomplishments and everything but he takes it too far.One time he actually held class long enough to read us a paper he wrote.He read us an entire dixie chicks song. Not recomende

Please keep comments clean. Libelous comments will be deleted. Guidelines He is very insensitive,do not explain things well, it's all about him and not the students and he fells to do his job as a professor

Dr. Coates is all about encouraging 'CRITICAL THINKING'. He has a very untraditional approach to teaching and he often seemed unfocused/unorganized, but he motivated me to learn in a way no other professor has before. Highly recommended for serious scholars.

At first i thought Coates was nuts. I fell behind in the reading immediately but then caught myself. I read each night and paid attention in class. I ended up getting an A+ on both exams and only lost three points due to a group presentation. I think he is an aquired taste but his teaching style is very easy. I would for sure suggest him for BWS!

He fell below all of my expectations every class. He does not come preared but rather 'googles' every day for material on the web that he thought was relevant...I didn't learn anything! I was hoping for wonderful insight but the discussion that could have happened was cut short by his need need to interrupt every student. Stay away!!!

I learned absolutely nothing in this class.In an upperlevel SOC class, I expect to talk about things that I have not learned about before, or at least go into more depth about what I already have.We used 2 horrible books in the class, and every discussion was the same.He interrupts students.He teaches without method/focus.Is smart, but can't teach.

Wow, Dr. Coates is amazing. I looked forward to going to his class every week. He knows what he's doing, and does it right. He doesn't make the class easy, and will call you out if he knows you didn't read that day. In class, he is what a teacher should be. He was my favorite teacher ever.

Anyone who doesn't appreciate this class 1) Doesn't do the readings 2) Doesn't give a **** about learning something they don't already know. Dr. Coates may scare you demmand wise but any teacher who has a class average of 3.25 isn't hard. Awesome class

These classes should be take by students who are interested in learning about themselves, and other cultures. Should be mandatory!!!

Still don't know what this class is about. Rodney needs to read the book before he teaches it, and a syllabus would have been nice. Democracy can kiss my ass.
