Very unwilling to help at all. Clarity on assignments is very vague but then doesn't help when something messes up. Get another teacher if you can.

This had to be the easiest class I've taken. I am shocked about these reviews, and I would tell people to take this class online. An A is extremely attainable. The projects and homework are simple, and you literally have to be blind to fail a test. She rocks!

This class is so much work and I think it is way harder online. The tests are hard as well as the projects. She is SO unhelpful and very rude. Do not take this class with this teacher!

Almost done taking this class online and I can't wait until it is over. Prepare to be amazed at the amount of work for a general ed PE class. Tests are hard, labs are tedious, and the projects are outrageous!! She is really nice but the class is overly difficult. Get ready to work....a LOT!!

She's very passionate about dance, and explains steps very well. Lenient attendance policy (You can miss 4 classes and it's only a 10 week course) but you don't want to because she moves very quickly. Overall it was an easy A, and I actually learned a lot of interesting dances and material.

DO NOT TAKE. Professor Howton's course was un-necessarily difficult for a required course. I studied more for this class than my other three (which I got A's in) and still only ended up with a low B. Don't expect to pass unless you have the time to go through the book with a fine-tooth comb and write down every word that she says.

I am currently taking this class online and it is miserable. It's a lot of work and labs and Professor Howton makes this class WAY too involved and difficult to be a general ed health class. I wouldn't recommend her. Ridiculous, can't wait til it's over.

This class is not difficult. I got an A never studying for the tests considering all 3 equate to only 30 percent of your grade. Do the labs and required work which means showing up. Schedule is accurate. All lectures revolve around her and her lifestyle. I never paid any attention since it is not testable. Study the E book and you'll be fine.

This professor is unclear! She never tells you flat out what she wants so getting good grades is almost impossible! She is unorganized and sets her exams opposite to the text. Don't take her!

Prof. Howton works with you and really wants you to do the work-even if you turn stuff in late, it's only 5 points off, because she wants you to do it and do well! Great lecture, attendance isn't a chore, and awesome lady.

Professor Howton is a really hard professor. You REALLY have to pay attention, take notes, read and study. Even then, you might not do so great. DO NOT take if you can avoid it.

She's alright. The class was easy mainly because I knew all the stuff. But her lectures were incredibly boring.

Nutrition and Fitness was a great class for me over summer, loss 10 pounds wearing the pedometer. Professor spends a bit too much time talking about herself, she goes on and on about her diet,her husband, her cooking style blah, blah, blah.... I will say for her to be 57 she looks great, she's my inspiration to be more fit.

This class was such a waste of time. HPS should be straightforward and along the same lines as normal health classes, but not with her (in combination with Rendini. there was no clarity on due dates, expectations, and the tests did not line up with class material. Notes not posted. I do not recommend her or Rendini. Especially Rendini.

Took along with Rendini. Howton was very straightforward and to the point. Sometimes she made you feel dumb for asking questions. Everything in this class was totally unclear, when things were due, and what had to be done for them. 4 tests, she counts 3. The test material is stuff that they don't go over, really difficult tests. Activity days.

She is a complainer - complains about literally everything! Make sure to go to class if you want to do good. The study guides have nothing to do with the tests. Only the stuff in her notes and lectures are on the tests. Make sure to do all assignments if you want to make a B or higher!

This teacher knows the subject material very well...however she would rather tell pointless stories about her own life rather than talking about the actual material. Attending class is basically pointless and might even confuse you more. Your best off just reading the book and staying home.

She is very passionate out the course material and has very high energy. Some of the material can be very dry but she does well with keeping the class interested and awake. Her tests are hard. There is alot of physical work that needs to be done outside of class. Then you need to read the etext book and be ready for class.

I took a dancing class with her. Some days she was in a really bad mood and got mad at us for not rememering the dance moves, but we went through so much so fast that we couldn't keep up. There was too much to learn and not enough time and she was really picky with posture and structure, when I couldn't even remember the steps! I wouldn't take her.
