IH 0851 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I thought his class was going to be really challenging and I didn't agree with anything he said and missed a few classes, but I went to him for help on the essays and I barely participated and ended up getting an A. His journals are a pain, but his views and personal experiences are very interesting. Would I choose his class if I had a choice? No.

Worst professor ever. If you're not religious and don't care about religion STAY AWAY! Spent a whole month on teh bible and relates every topic to it. He also picks favorites. He's very opinionated and unless you agree with him you're wrong. JUST STAY AWAY. If you're shy his mandatory participation will really screw over your grade.

Frank was kind of a quirky guy -- likes to bring up sticky subjects. I enjoyed his class for the most part, but I was really irked when he asked me if I plagiarized my midterm paper!!! Do the journals consistently. I definitely recommend maintaining a rapport with him throughout the class, it'll help your participation grade.

IH01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Leib was very accommodating to a number of circumstances throughout the year. Attendance is mandatory, but he allows you to make up absences in his office. Meetings in his office are not required although he loves it!!!! Enjoyed the class because it was kind of relaxed.

Go to his office hours! He is a very intelligent professor, who starts a lot of thought-provoking discussions. I feel like your grade is really based on keeping up with the journal entries and PARTICIPATION...you must sign up for frequent meetings in order to do well. Good teacher

Odd teacher. Talks about sex ALOT. Does journals and a paper. Likes a journalistic style of writing. Loves participation. Once you learn what he likes you are able to focus yourself on doing those things. Easy overall.

Dr. Leib seems easy, but when it comes down to it, its very difficult to pull an A in his class. My writing is flawless for academic papers but his 'midterm' paper is practically a story that you ramble about, making the actual intelligent people in the class strain to write about something so ridiculous. Rambles constantly and forgets a lot

Professor Leib was a great professor that is extremely available to all students. Whomever downed him probably did not do the reading (which you need to do to succeed). Take him and expect fun discussions, great readings, and an overall intelligent guy.

MosaiII Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Pretty disorganized, comes to class late a lot, assigns incredible amounts of reading material that noone can reasonably do since the class was a GenEd and they have their own majors. Go to his office hours weekly and make sure everything is up to A order (even then though he'll probably knock you down to an A- for the final grade arbitrarily).

He is a terrible teacher. we had discussions everyday and it seemed like the only thing we talked about is money, sex and immigrants. He requires us to read the book, but we barely talk about the book in class. I recommend another teacher.

Leib is a smart guy, but he's narrow minded. He requires that you make up EVERY absence and come in during his office hours. His class isn't hard, but I wouldn't take him again.

Leib is a great professor. The people who speak poorly of him were probably too moronic to be able to contribute a valid opinion to the discussion. While he is a bit opinionated, he let's everyone speak who wishes to, and marks every time as part of your participation grade. He helps immensly on the paper if you go to him. GREAT PROFESSOR.

Prof. Leib is a terrible teacher. He opens up discussion about controversial topics and then belittles your answers. He is extremely opinionated and if you don't agree with his opinions you're in for a rough semester. If you are stuck with taking his class, try to get on his good side because he picks favorites.

This man is awful. He is very narrow minded and has no time for anyone else's opinion. He is bad for Temple and bad for teaching in general. There is a reason why he was an ex-journalist.

IHIH08 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's a good guy and his papers are real easy, plus worth lots of points, but the way he talks is very jumpy and disorganized, he's incredibly computer illiterate and doesn't follow his own syllabus at all. Be ready to read only the first ten pages of any book cause he breezes, never actually discusses. Decent professor but not one I'd take a again.

Class was annoying and full of peoples dumb opinions. Prof was biased it seemed, but if you participated and went to his office hours frequently, you'd get an A. He will grade your paper beforehand until you get an A so always go to his office. Very helpful.

Attendance is mandatory, if you don't go then you'll have to meet outside of class to make it up. If you're the quiet type go to his office once a week for participation and you'll get an A. He gave two magazine syle essays (no works cited needed) that you can redo over and over until ou get an A. You'll learn a lot in this class

This man is awesome!!! He may seem weird at first, but if you go to his office alot, hes an amazing person to talk too!! His grading consists of two super easy essays, a blue book final, and a journal. If your absent, just go to his office and spend 20 min with him and its gone!!! Very flexible due dates, and has good personal stories as well. A+++
