THE 140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Frank makes the material easy to follow along with. He gave an outline of his lectures to take notes with. I also record his lectures (with permission). The class had three papers(3-4 pages) and three exams.

Frank is awesome! He's easy going and grades fairly (He'll always explain why you got the grade you did). I took this class online and it was simple enough to keep up with the weekly assignments and discussions.

Great teacher! Responded promptly to emails and tests were from right out of the book! Such an easy online class, and the videos were actually short and interesting. Definitely take this if you need an art class for your gen eds!

Dr.Pickard runs an OUTSTANDING online course. He's super fast with grading and responding to emails, his assignments are well spaced and not overwhelming. He's incredibly helpful. He really sets his students up for success.

Easy and cool class. Readings from the book are easy to understand. The most word heavy readings were the plays and even those weren't too bad. Had to see 3 performances which was fun, then write about them. Had weekly discussions that posed questions we needed to answer and reply to. He responds to emails quickly. Nice guy and encouraging.

Frank is an absolutely wonderful professor. He is incredibly intelligent and you will learn alot from his class whether you are a theatre major or not. Acing is easy enough if you go to class and do the assignments, which are all reasonable in length. He is also a treasure to have as a teacher, so if you get the chance, don't pass him up!

Pickard is really easy- going and his class is quite interesting. He wrote the book that we read in class, so when he lectures its pretty much everything out of the book. You can sit in class and never have to read the book or never go to class and read the book. either way you can end up with an A.

I took THE 105 Online and it was a breeze. Dr Pickard always makes himself available to help and if you read the material you will do just fine. Take this course to knock out a couple of the requirements for your AGEC.

One of the most knowledgeable Theatre teachers I have ever encountered. He is not only an amazing teacher, but also a great man. He really cares about his students and if you allow yourself to get to know him, he will really take a personal interest in you & help you in any way he can.

Frank is by far my favorite teacher so far! He makes every class interesting, and always relates theatre to other things. So not only do you learn about playwrights, you also learn some 1950s history at the same time. Great class, great teacher.

Man is brilliant. Yeah, he uses his own textbook, but it's inexpensive compared to other books, and it covers the subject matter. He also uses it, which other profs don't. He has great personal stories that connect back to the subject. He's had an interesting career and brings those experiences to the class discussion, which makes it fun and i

Frank was an AMAZING professor. He is willing to help, if you are willing to do the work. I emailed him numerous times for help while studying for his test,he responded immediately. I couldn't find a copy of a required play, Frank let me borrow his. I just sat in his office and read. Great man, AMAZING TEACHER!! You'll love him! Plus, he's HOT!:)

Frank is, hands down, the best teacher I've had at PCC and I'm not even a Theatre major. I took his class as an elective and it was the best thing I ever did. Not only do you learn about Theatre in his class, but about life. His lectures are great. I can't recommend him enough. Take his class, you won't be disappointed. Frank is the BEST!

I LOVE Frank! I took his's THE 149(intro theatre) class one semester & took his THE 105(theatre appreciation) class the next. He's the only theatre teacher @ Pima w/ a PHD & wrote his own THE 105 textbook. I truly have learned more from him than any other professor. He will make you work some, but he is absolutely worth it. I highly recommend him!!
