Too much of this class felt like time wasted. Discussions were unfocused and often had little to do with the material, giving the impression that she either did not know it or was unprepared to talk about it. Usually, the students had to re-direct the discussion after she had diverted it on a tangent. She was often dismissive and disrespectful.

A true embarrassment to academia. Insulting to think that Miss Hethorn is allowed to teach, especially at a graduate level. She was manipulative, had no grasp of the material she was trying to teach and could not make a relevant point. I feel robbed after taking this class, and think it is criminal that UD allows her on its campus and classrooms.

basically with this professor, every time you leave class you'll begin to wonder why you hate your life.

Lets put it this way. If you take this class, everyday you leave you'll suddenly begin to wonder why you hate your life.

Ive never met someone who had the ability to literally make me sick. Her appearance is just as absurd as her class. Her lectures are completely pointless. Random notes assignments dont pertain to the class and serve no purpose. She believes herself to be really intelligent but her lack of clarity on assignments do not show it very well, just say no

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. She turned what could have been an awesome class into one that I dreaded going to. She is very unclear about waht she wants and is extremely condesending. If you have a choice of taking her class with a different teacher DO IT!

I'm sure she's very knowledgable about her research topics. But in terms of FASH110, not sure what the point of the class was... just pretend it's a real class and work really hard and you'll get an A. Don't waste your time wondering what the point of anything she does is, there is none.

the other reviews are right. hethorn is crazy and you'll want to strangle her by the end of the semester. she thinks she's intelligent but she really knows nothing and you won't learn anything either. she won't seem that bad on the first day, but just wait. if you need to take this, wait until its offered from someone other than this insane woman.

HORRIBLE,HORRIBLE WOMAN! she makes you feel like crap after you worked really hard on an assignment. She is condesending and she is ALWAYS laughing at herself even though nothing funny is going on in class. I learned nothing. She only accepts what SHE wants, not what you think is correct. Felt like an elementary class, but she is mean!

Don't waste your time on her classes. She gives the most pointless projects that take forever and a day to do, and then when you finish and think you've done a relativly good job she rips you apart. She doesn't teach, she talks and talks and talks and then gives tons of busy work to make it look like shes doing something

Dr. Hethorn sucks the big one. She doesn't know what the hell she's talking about and she gives the worst projects with no direction, and she gives us alot of busy work, and she says EVERYTHING is wrong. She sucks. Don't take her class.

I am not in the class but a workshop guide and have found that she is very discouraging. theyll think they did a good job n then shell nitpick every little thing they did wrong instead of telling them what they did right. besides that shes a nice teacher n class is not too hard. lots of busy work.doesnt realize kids have other classes besides hers

i think she is a great teacher. you could tell she has a lot on her plate which may make her a little unorganized, but she is very well rounded and funny.
