EDF 2085 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

This class is super easy! It's self explanatory. You need to book, but you don't necessarily need to read the book. I took the tests by looking up the key terms in the Index. He gives you study guides that you do before the tests and a certain portion of the study guide is your exam. Definitely take any classes you can with him!

EDF 2085 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Do not take him in an online class. The work load is ridiculous and overwhelming, while his directions are confusing and long. His grading makes no sense, especially when he says "great work" but gives you an 80 on an assignment. LOTS of group work

EDF 2005 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This class is a hybrid class (part online part class). This class was super easy. He wasn't always the nicest when it came to asking questions about work and such but as long as you read the book, you are guaranteed an A. No tests only quizzes, module work and the observations.

TSL 4340 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the worst professors I have taken. Whenever you have a problem and email him, he is very rude with his response. The weekly expectations are consistent, but that's the only good thing about this guy.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. S!!! He makes this class a lot of fun and really gets to know the students even when it is a virtual class! I would tell everyone to take any class of his they could get into! Best teacher at FGCU!

This was an online class and I actually got to know my professor! Dr. Simpson is a great guy and made the class very interactive. I also learned a great deal about TESOL.

Too much work & doesn't care you have other classes & internship. But there are no surprises, lays out exactly the requirements. But be ready for hours of work and unnecessary assignments (video editing?!) Not relevant to being a teacher. Nice guy though, but don't expect him to help you unless you go to his office, posting on the cafe won't help.

The best part about Simpson is that there are NO surprises. His schedule for assignments is very simple, there is only one task per week and the due date is always on a Saturday. The only thing that was difficult about this class was making a video clip. But if you ask for help (I did) he will help you until you find a solution. GREAT PROFESSOR! =)

TSLBL2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had some issues with Dr. S...some people he lets get away with things, others he doesnt. An assignment called for an oral scaffolding observation and my friend set everything up, went to observe, and then the teacher didn't use scaffolding. Dr S gave the student an F on the assignment when it was not in her control! He also wouldn't let her redo it

I took him for a virtual class and it was a lot of fun. His expectations are clear, and the work was neither too hard nor too easy. I learned a lot, and would definitely recommend him.

Connections Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Simpson is a horribly boring teacher who does the same thing every day of his class. There is no mixing up to what you do in his class. I personally did not learn ANYTHING in his class,and his absentee rule was horrible. If you take this teacher,DO NOT MISS HIS CLASS!Easy class, but horrible teacher
