i would not recommend this instructor. He is super liberal & highly opinionated, he rants the whole time. doesn't teach anything. the quizzes are hard, you have to read the book. I had the ebook & it came with a link w/ study guide questions so i would recommend reviewing those since all the questions are word for word from the book

POLSC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Crawford is a really chill professor, he's the kind of professor that wants everyone to do great and he does give you that chance since he makes the class easy and interesting but he lacks communication skills and doesn't really teach but overall, it was a great class!

Teacher was helpful at the beginning but was very inconsistent towards the end of the semester. Although class was easy and tests were easy, he lacked communication skills.

The class is pretty much your ideal "easy A" course. It is informative, and he is incredibly bright, but he preaches more than he teaches. He did provide some really interesting documentaries.

Mr. Crawford is a wise expieranced man who has seen and done alot. I have taken 2 classes with him and he is very easygoing and layed back. He has a great personality and broadens your thinking regarding alot of world issues. Although he is easily distracted and lecture has nothing to do with tests so you are on your own for knowing the material.

I've had 4 classes with Crawford. He's very intelligent and a great teacher. Listening 2 him speak on various political issues makes me wonder why he doesn't run 4 office, he'd have my vote. U have to read and especially go over the quiz reviews if you want to do well in the class. Lots of the class is talk about US issues not book review

I love Prof. Crawford. He is one of best in SJCC. He is at retirement age and he is wise. Ask yourself.. How much did you know 10 years ago compare to now? Probably not much. Everyone should listen more carefull when he tries to share his wisdom. If you take his course, you will learn about life as well. I strongly recommend Prof. Crawford.

Mr. Crawford is a very interesting man, yet he does not lecture or devote class time to content of a test. Strays off subject 95% of time. Content of tests not lectured on in class or during quiz discussion. Random quiz questions and then doesn't understand how you missed questions. Do not take if you want a traditional class!

He was an interresting teacher, although his lectures are purely based on opinion and experience, the class went by pretty fast. There are a three quizzes and the final is based on the quizzes. At the end of the quiz you can stay and go over the answers or you can go home. Class was a breeze!

SOC011A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His classes are really easy to get an A. Attendance is only necessary to keep yourself in the class, but most of the tests/quizes are from the book. His lectures are based too much on his opinion, no real substance (as in facts/sources). He's not really very professional at all... must be because he's been teaching too long...

He said in the begining of the class that he does not give F's. You must read the book. The quizes are from the text not the lecture. He does a review after each quiz. The final is cumulative but are the same questions that were on the quizes. You must attend the review days. If you do, then an A is no problem.

You have to be completely incompetent to not pass his class. His tests are short and quite easy if you read your text. Don't think you can just miss his class because he is liable to give a pop quiz! Great teacher and makes class interesting and fun.

Seems to be a really cool, liberal, Bush bashing anti-church kinda guy, which I love, but his lectures are boring and lack any real substance. You don't have to take any notes as he post them on WEB CT. His test are short and easy and he grades on a major curve. You can miss every question on a test and still get a D, miss half and get a C.

AJ 11 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He has been teaching sociology/administration of justice/politics for over 25 years. His lectures are with power point. He gives few group or in class assignments. He does not assign homework. If you attend class and read the book you will pass the class. After each test he does a review and the finals are cumulative. He is also the anti-christ.

He was a terrific teacher. I would take his class again! He is very intelligent and really knew what he was talking about. He always had the lecture and lesson prepared. He was very helpful in assisting us with any questions we had.

he is cool i guess. but his lectures are waaaaaaack. he rambles off & gets side tracked really easy. its my first time in his class. so i cant really say much about exams or anything. but there are alot of people in my class that has had him before for a different class. & they say that hes VERY EASY TO PASS. you just have to act like you're actually trying.
