good teacher, uses powerpoints, all the notes in class she posted online, but you should still take notes of the examples she uses, they show up on the tests. Honestly show up for class, pay attention & you'll do fine. she's helpful, even sets up study session before the test, so have any questions she'll answer them all there.

ANTH152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this class. Her lectures were very interesting. There are 4 projects, which require at least 3 pages. There are extra credit opportunities. She's a very understanding lady and enjoys teaching anthropology.

Hmmmm, it was an 'okay' class. I thought the labs were pretty fun, but I wasn't too excited with the lectures. They made me pretty sleepy, actually. Her PowerPoint's are nice, and she provides the lecture notes online...but exams can be tricky if you're not too interested in the subject. But she's nice and did provide some extra credit, even.

Really sweet lady. I just wasn't into the class (loved Anth 151). Powerpoint presentations are not too clear, esp. for the tests, make sure you write down ALL side comments she says. Lots of in-class activities for credit, 4 projects (lots of writing). But overall, pretty easy.

ANTH151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This was the most BORING professor I had for my first semester at UH. I fell asleep nearly every Tuesday and Thursday... she just reads off her stupid PP Presentation. Notes are provided... tests are okay. Make sure you see/write EVERYTHING from her point of the view (the notes) because she's the "expert" (yeah right)

Anthr151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a very knowledgeable professor, but quite boring that I often couldn't stay up in class. If you take her on a monday, wednesday, and friday schedule she should be great, any longer that that, you wont be able to stay up. Her grading is very generous. But study for her exams.

ANTH151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I expected this class to be a lot harder than it was. Her lectures are informative and her notes reflect majority of information needed for the tests. You don't have to read the book or attend class to pass however, you test grades and grade will be much higher if do both.

I took this course last semester (Spring 2007) so it's still fresh in my mind. Overall, this class was okay. I enjoyed the instructor's stories and anecdotes about the material shared in class. I recommend showing up to class everyday because,unlike many professors here, whatever she talks about in class, will ACTUALLY be on the tests/ final exams!

lectures are a drag but must go in order to obtain most of the info you need for exams. provides lots of opportunities for extra credit but most are on your own time. gives you a lot of time to finish assignments, tries to get class involved, and is very knowledgable

She is a good professor...very detailed. She requires you to know a lot of information, but gives a study guide to help with exams.

Easy A. Has powerpoints for all the lectures, if you go to them, listen, and take good notes you dont need to read the book. (Except to look up stuff for the study guides she gives before exams.) Gives lots of chance for extra credit. Overall good teacher who knows her stuff.

1st half the the semester was interesting but 2nd half dragged. Class is easy, just keep up with the projects and occassional homework. Also gives a lot of extra credit opportunities. Her lectures are very concise and informative. She also has anecdotes from her life experiences. Highly recommended for anthropology!

I thought she was a very nice teacher. You could see she loved the subject because she always had a story for everything. At times she could be boring but if I can pass it anyone can so if your looking a class thats fairly easy try I recommend her!!
