I think she did pretty well considering the class size. She was funny and kept class entertaining. The class itself wasn't hard at all as long as you go and do the easy papers.

SYG2430 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher on the planet! Whole class is a talk show about irrelevant things. Cannot grade anything on time. Powerpoints are useless. Exam is from a 60 page per chapter textbook which we never use in class. Biggest waste of time! Kicking rocks will help you learn more than taking this class.

The worst professor on the history of this planet.Complete waste of time. You will not get any crucial exam information until the night before the exam. Cannot grade anything on time. Whole class is a talk show about irrelevant things. Exam straight out of the 60 page per chapter book. Kicking rocks will help you learn more than taking this class.

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. She doesn't have a clue about technology so you will spend at least 20 minutes every day trying to open a powerpoint. She loses train of thought very easily. I turned in the last project via Elearning and she never received it... Easy A but is an easy A worth the headache?

She is the dumbest professor ever. She constantly loses her train of thought and states obvious facts as if they are genius comments. Do Not take this course, avoid if at all possible.

Very frustrating - instructions for assignments are unclear. Class overall is not difficult, and she is a very nice person, but I highly recommend finding a different professor!

SYG2430 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a complete space cadet. Not only did no one - including the TAs - no what was going on but she couldn't even answer simple questions about her projects she assigned. When the case study started, she never told us what she wanted from the project or what it was. Don't take Shehan's class, you won't have a clue as to what is being taught

She is a nice enough person, but seems to hardly care about the students. Rarely answers e-mails, and if she does, is extremely slow in doing so. Makes you believe that you can look at her ppt's and do well on tests. NOT TRUE. Need to read the textbook. In no way should she be the chair of the sociology department. In no way should she be teaching.

She should not be teaching. She is horrible. Didn't know how to use e-learning. Constantly said that she wanted to be Oprah. No actual instruction in class. Absolutely no test prep. Extremely slow with putting in grades. Constantly changed the syllabus. Had to add a lot of extra credit because test scores were bad. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!

Most unorganized teacher I've had at UF so far. She changed the syllabus several times, rambled on during lectures, and was behind on grading. Avoid her classes at all costs!!!

Useless teacher. Doesn't prep students for exams. Class is a glorified talk show. Very little instruction in class. Doesn't know how to use e-learning. If you are taking this class for an easy A, it will be fine, but extremely frustrating. If you are taking for your major, you will come out wanting to change your major.

Online section. This class was horrible! It was not organized AT ALL. Weekly assignments were not updated until the last day due. Discussion boards never opened. And there was hardly any assistance from TAs and the professor.

Took online for gen-ed credit. This class will piss you off and make you so frustrated. Completely disorganized, grades never posted, emails never answered, videos / assignments are usually glitchy or missing or 20 years old. Tons of busywork... short papers, quizzes, etc. but overall not a hard A.

She's useless. TA's or Shehan never answer emails, most of the work wasn't graded until the weekend before grades were submitted. There's a LOT of work and the syllabus is very unclear on which assignments actually need to be completed for credit. It's hard to keep track of what you've done because nothing ever gets graded!! Very frustrating.

Personally There is way too much work in this class. There are essays weekly, discussion boards weekly, hard quizzes (which you get barely any answers from the lectures, you have to read) and she grades kinda hard on the essay, nice lady it seems like though. I would rather take the class in person

I took this class online and it is super easy...yet, kinda sorta time consuming, too. If you want an easy "A", you're in the right place. If you want an easy "A" with minimal work, take Man's Food and not this class. The quiz questions come right out of the book, the essays are BS, the responses to videos are BS. Easy, but not worth the work.
