JUST 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Professor Capeheart is not an easy A. You will have to read and actually be in class to learn. If you miss class in can get a bit confusing. Even though this class is hard it is very fun and you can learn a lot. She really motivates you to study. I am taking her again in the summer and would definitely recommend her!!

I have just began my second class with Professor Capeheart. She is so great, so kind and incredibly knowledgable on the material covered and then some. You you really care to learn and stretch your intelligence than this is the Professor you take.

I thinks she is an awesome professor. Unlike many professors her class is well structured, she's very knowledgeable and explains very clearly. Don't expect to earn an A if you don't do the readings or the homework. It's common sense.

She's a wonderful professor, but her grading was unfair. I didn't miss a class, read everything thoroughly, and prepared for the (four) quizzes we had. Class out of 100 points, quizzes 25 points a piece. I was 2 points short of an A. Goodbye 4.0 GPA! The class is probably different during the fall or spring (I took it in the summer).

As long as you go to class, ay attention and take notes its not that bad! I think we had 4 papers and 3 quizes. Its 10 points a paper and 20 points a quiz. Just re read all the questions...

I think the only thing I did not like about this teacher is her grading tactics. There is basically no extra credit and the class is out of 100 points all together. If you screw up once, there is no way to fix your grade. Other than that, she was fun to listen to and very educating.

I just took 329 and found the course to be easy but that isn't always a good thing. The class wasn't focused nor did I feel like the mission of the class was met. That said, Capeheart's classes are easy if you go to class, do the work, and show an interest. I don't know how you couldn't get an A.

Take another course if you can, I WARN YOU. Capeheart seems nice, but her grading is horrible. She plays major favortism and will find any reason not to give you an A. If you take her course you will be verrry sorry come grading time!!

Not a fair teacher. I think there is something wrong with her psychologically as she would nit pick at my papers all the time. There were other students she also did this to. I guess it demends on whether she liked you or not.

I have taken a few classes with Dr. Capeheart. She is an amazing teacher. One of the brightest professors at NEIU. Those that say that she is not good is becuase they are lazy. If you do the work and attend classes you would know how good of a professor she is. I strongly recommend her. Just make sure you read her book and study for exams.

She is the worst teacher and the only teacher that teaches the core classes. She is not helpful you will not understand anything that you do in there. She DOESN'T teacher she has the students do it for her.She also used books that are out of print and doesn't care if you have them or not. She is so into going against the government in everything.

I like professor Capeheart, I believe that she is one of the best Justice Studies Professsors on campus. I like Dr. Capeheart becuase she actually makes her student's work for their grade.She also let's you know in class that you must work hard for your grade.

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. She says in class that you can come and talk to her BUT THAT IS A LIE!!!!! she is different outside of the classroom. She is one of those teachers that complains about the money that she makes. This is not YALE, get a life. She is not a good teacher. I would take another teacher but she is the only one.
