172A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

This course from beginning to end is shameful political indoctrination. Either you accept the indoctrination or expect insults. Course material and political views are decades out of date. Course is not evidence based and places ideology and politics ahead of facts. The instructor needs to retire before doing more harm to teacher education.

EDSC 172A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

This class is really hard! I think every teacher needs to take this course, but maybe with a different professor. She needs to start using rubrics! Rubrics are not just for grades, they are there to be helpful guidelines. Her objectives are vague, and leaves students confused as to what she wants.

This teacher totally prepares student teachers for realities that will be faced in classes. We learn how whiteness is viewed from many nonwhite perspectives. Truth can be painful; but it will help when teaching Great Professor, socratic method.

EDSC172 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I know not everyone liked her, but she influenced me more than any other teacher I've had. Her class and my student-teaching and coaching experiences transformed me into a social activist first, teacher second. I know I have made a life-long difference on several of my students and athletes, and that would never have happened if not for Roberta.

EDSC172 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Ahlquist knows her stuff. If you felt uneasy in her class, her mission was accomplished. She can only take you as far on this topic as you are willing to go, but she professionally pushes everyone to get out of their comfort zone. I think we need her, or someone like her, to keep us honest.

EDSC180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Classroom is NOT a safe space--be forewarned coming in. Painful to sit through class even if you AGREE with her; she'll talk right over you and ignore points if you disagree. Consistently misquotes and misrepresents facts in classrooms--a pity, because she knows her stuff, and cares about her subject greatly. Did far more harm than good.

Awful professor. She looks down on minorities as always needing help who are unable to "escape" from their poverty stricken world because of white prejudice. That's the sum of what she teaches you for the entire class.
