Govt. 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you truly want to learn, you will appreciate her serious, but fun teaching style. She really wants us to learn and will help us succeed. If you're a slacker and are only in class because mommy makes you go, you may not appreciate her. She makes us work and she cares about us. Great teacher!

Honestly, she was a okay teacher. When i attended her class we only took tests. Teaching method is okay, READ THE TEXTBOOK! ATTEND CLASS! PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS! The testwere not so bad, but make sure you take notes in class and even when studying.

I like her so far. She's fair and very smart and funny. Doesn't make you feel stupid when you dont know something. Gives good examples and we do fun stuff. Took this class before form someone else and it was sooo boring. MUST READ AND STUDY!!!!! Some readings are hard like articles and stuff but she explains good.

Not sure why people says she has only tests. We have quizes and group work. Maybe because they have a new course? Took a few semesters ago and she did the same thing that she does now..quizes, tests and group work. Good teacher. Knows my name.

Govt2306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Read the book and attend class and you'll do fine. No homework. No essays. Also she makes herself available and is willing to go over things one on one in office hours. The wording on her tests was sometimes unclear but she would clarify if you had a question. Plus she gave bonus questions on tests.

As long as you read the necessary chapters for the tests your guaranteed at least a B. The class was kinda boring but the teacher tried to keep it interesting. She posts the slides on ANGEL. Guaranteed an A if you just participate in class discussion and read text book.

She is a good teacher who knows her stuff! The only problem is that you really have to study ALOT and be very picky with your notes in order to pass her class! Attendance is MANDATORY!!!! She also wants you prepared for class! She kicked more than half of the class out one day because we were not prepared with material she had asked us to learn.

She is a great techer. she puts up power point slides online that are really helpful for the tests. there are only 4 grades in that course, the four test grades, so be sure you do well on those, no homework or anything, it was a pretty easy govt class. she's funny and relates to her students

At first, I didn't think I would be able to pass Prof. Amy's class. But she created useful assignments and gave us the direction we needed to succeed. She is really kind and very professional. I highly rec. her.

Ms. Acord was a pretty good professor. She definitely has a passion for political science which make the lectures interesting. Reading the book is a must, if you do you'll probably get at least a B, lots of studying for the A. She was a little disorganized but she won't be using this MyPoliSciLab program next semester which should help.

Amy is very passionate about GOVT and you will definitely walk away with more knowledge. She is funny so her lectures are quite enjoyable. She really cares about her student success but her class is one you will have to work at. Not an easy class--but worth it! She is really, really GREAT!

Professor Acord really knows her subject. I took the online class. Her lecture notes are inspiring and interesting and so is the book because it is so current. You do need to read the material and study, but you'll get an A and love what you learned if you study up.

I took her for the summer mini- mester. You have to read the book! Also be prepared for in class discussions on the chapters. Pretty much write down everything she says, do all the readings and study a lot. You have to work to get an A. This is not a **** class.

She is fair and conducts class discussions and lectures on all non-test days. You will have to study outside of class and read the book. I found that using the text book web site study tools were extremely helpful. She is also chatty and a friendly person
