soc022 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's super laid back and all, but you really aren't going to learn much. If you're good at reading the textbook and figure things out on your own, you'll be fine. however, if you like hands-on help, DROP. there is no real connection. He's pretty disorganized so watch for that. Overall, an easy A if you can manage on your own.

socs022 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

can be rude. just turn in your learning logs and try your best on the exams. sometimes the answers he gives you to exams are not the same as the answers required to get the question right. kind of a confusing class. just make sure you got contacts.

Horrible teacher. He's funny but doesn't show genuine interest in students. Unclear in what he wants and doesn't even answer phone calls. He's hard to understand and you won't learn much at all. He's extremely rude and laughs at his humor. AND you gotta do an hour long presentation. Cutie in my class doe..only good part haha. Don't take him!

Professor Avelar is horrible. He is unprofessional and disorganized. Total waste of time, I dreaded going every week. He would go on and on about topics irrelevant to the course and often racially inappropriate. He swears too much and uses his education to justify discrimination. If you arent hispanic don't expect to be respected!

Socs22 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very accomplished professor, he's a double doctorate. I was very interested in taking his class, but I was pretty disappointed. He had very little in the way of lectures or actual teaching. It almost felt like we were teaching ourselves. Nice guy, kinda funny but not a very good teacher in the traditional sense.

Dr. Avelar made what otherwise might have been a very dry class, interesting and fun! I look forward to going to his class each night, and honestly have learned a lot from him. I recommend him to students who are open minded and have a sense of humor, because he will have you laughing for sure! Thank you Dr. Avelar!

Dr.Avelar is one of my most favorite teachers!! He really cares about his students and will anything to help you walk out his class with a good grade! Who better to learn Social Science from? He's a master's prof. at Sac State and is involved w/the U.N.
