Says attendance isn't mandatory... But is... I didn't learn a thing. One of the worst classes I have ever taken, staying awake was a challenge. She is very unclear in explanations .... Course is very opinion based (hers) ... Really just a bad experience.

RUN ... rants ... tests are worded odd. An absolutely dreadful class. I regret ever taking it. I learned nothing useful.

Absolutely dreadful. She rambles on with her opinions that are meaningless, naive, and ignorant. It's never a lecture, it's a rant. Book is useless. She doesn't care how you do and is so unhelpful it's offensive.

Awful class. I was excited about this class when I signed up but was quickly let down. She is always late, always rants longer than she teaches, and when she does "teach" she just reads off the word document she is projecting.

I took ALL of Dr. Moorelocks classes to double major in Sociology! This was in 10 yrs ago. Great professor, a little boring, but straightforward. I agree with the current posts...quizes, notebooks, attandance,pre tests with answers show on final test. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Attendance is not required, except on discussion days, you earn points on your grade for attending these. Fairly easy class if you do the readings.

I was really excited about this class from the reviews on this site but I regret taking it. Most of class is filled with rants about things already known to those who keep up with the news. I don't feel like I learned a whole lot, but if you're just trying to skate through college it's an easy A.

Great teacher and one of my favorites at this university. She is a very nice person who is not too strict on anything which makes the classroom environment fun. If you pay attention you will learn lots of applicable information and gain a new perspective. Take Dr. Morelock!

Take her class if you are not interested in the material. If you actually want to be engaged and learn then take someone else. Her class is easy and she is really nice, but I took this class because I was really interested in the material, not for an easy A. Yes it helped my GPA but I did not learn much.

Dr. Morelock has been one of my favorite professors. She's not difficult if you take her class seriously. I didn't have to read everything, but I attended all her classes (they're mandatory) and did my best to pay attention. Tests will be tricky if you don't attend class. She gives lecture notes and fairly thorough study guides. Very fair grader.

She is the best sociology professor at UTK and one of the best in general. The lectures are engaging and her examples are great. Her tests are tough but she offers extra credit. She would probably break her own back to help her students. She is openly liberal so that may be an issue for some but she is not mean to conservatives or anything.

Dr. Morelock is one of the best professors at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. She is extremely helpful and really goes out of her way to help students succeed. If you are a Sociology major, try to take any class Dr. Morelock offers; it will be well worth your time and money.

A very nice woman who will work to help you pass her class. Her tests are surprisingly hard but as long as you show up to class and read the notes she posts on blackboard you should be OK. Just whatever you do, don't let her get on her soapbox. She will talk your head off.

Dr. Morelock is a great teacher. Very helpful, very energetic. She teaches you the things you will actually need in real life. Tests are not hard at all if one comes to class, and does his homework.

She is very nice. Attendance is mandatory but she is understanding if you have to miss. There is a notebook that you can do which will help your grade but it is not mandatory. Most all of the notes are on blackboard. She gives a study guide and 10 quiz questions which usually show up on the test. I plan on taking more classes with her!

She's a very interesting professor. Attendance is mandatory, but she's very understanding. Exams can be somewhat hard to understand but are straightforward if you study. She goes over everything in class and posts it online for future reference. Notebook is optional and can help your grade. I would recommend her for anyone and will take again.

Takes Attendance every class, which counts as a grade. She gives a study guide for exams and has only a few homework assigments which are done in groups. No quizzes just exams. Exams are easy if u come to class. Textbook was only used when filling out study guide. So if u can share a textbook with a friend I recommend doing that rather than buying.

Very sweet and concerned for students...but all of her videos, readings, reference material were at least 20 years old. Thus, the information was way outdated and pointless- kind of like she is. Easy class, just painfully boring.

She's a very nice person - pretty boring to listen to, but really not that bad of a teacher. Her tests aren't that hard if you study. She curves a lot and works well with you. If you have to take Soc 343, take her. Always come on participation days (which you really don't have to participate in) and do all EC - counts alot toward your final grade.
