Very interesting fellow to say the least. goes off on a tangent most the time during lecture but I would always walk away a satisfied student because of that.The intro courses are easy peasy so that's probably why he isnt such a stickler during lecture. I learned alot from Mr. Allen, both in terms of ethnic studies and life in general.

Dropped. For an online class, he required students to attend multicultural events every two weeks. People take online classes because they can't get to campus. I commute and when I was on campus, I was in class and had no time to attend events. Wrote own textbook, his class was run through publisher. Expensive book is worthless, can't be resold.

I rarely show up to this class. He's boring and talks about himself and a bunch of useless stuff. If I didn't have to take this class for my major I wouldn't of. This class is awful.

Very easy class. People get pissed cause he does talk about himself alot and his past experiences but he is after all a PROFESSOR not a teacher. He doesn't need to follow a state mandated curriculum. If you don't learn in class, then use the book like you're supposed to.

I'm also taking his class this fall 2013 and I must disagree with others, he is rude and the most worst professor compare to the other four I have this semester.

Not recommend. I took him last semester and learned nothing. Most of the time spent watching useless videos.

VERY CONFUSED. MOST OF THE TIME JUST TALKING ABOUT HIS FAMILY. IF YOU WANT EASY A, GET TO KNOW HIM AND DO ONE OR TWO PAPERS.

He is the worst professor ever. Don't take him. He makes you go online and do stupid questions. The only thing he wants is for the students to purchase his own textbook for the course. Don't waste your time.

Prof. Allen is one of the most interesting prof's I have ever had, very friendly guy, very knowledgeable, but he lectures all class period about his life stories which is okay but you are graded on attending class so you have to be there. You watch a movie or two, and he grades the papers I felt very generously, the class is easy and he is awesome!

Dr. Allen is cool but he really loves to tell stories about himself. Pretty interesting and out there kind of guy, but you have to be willing to listen to constant life stories. Class is just a show up for points and essays are graded generously.

I learned more about Dr. Allen in this class than I did about the actual subject. He likes to hear himself talk and unfortunately this doesn't help you with the papers and the tests. I do not recommend this class at all.

I was amazed by the amount of work he required us to do; far too much for a 100 level class. He was really unorganized and attending the classes were pointless because he talks about himself the whole time. Otherwise, he's a really easy grader, and the tests are extremely easy (I got an A). Don't take class unless you're interested in the subject

Quizzes and tests are easy, keep the answers to them and you get the tests 100%! however. You must write 26 papers and go to 8 events. He is very controversial and because he wrote the book needed, he thinks he knows everything!

This class is easy if you do all the work. I skipped class because I was sick of the professor talking about his accomplishments. He claims to be part American Indian (like 1/32) and is pretty annoying when talking about "his people" when he didn't grow up with the tradition or anything. Only take if you need it. Alot of work for a 101.
