He is a very easy professor, bright, and even though he's of old age he's a kind gentleman who sincerely loves his profession. A breeze in his class, just pay attention, discuss, and be firm with what you say. He will respect you if you do the same.

he is a terrible professor. he picks and chooses who he wants to pass. if he doesnt like you, you will fail. he is by far the RUDEST prof ive ever had at temple. also he is very UNCLEAR and doesnt communicate with the class at all. AVOID HIM AT ALL COST

Your grade relies mostly on his opinion of you. He doesn't teach as much as he just gives you focus questions to help you teach yourself out of the textbooks. He has surprisingly poor communication and verbal comprehension skills for a social worker, as you'll surely find out by discussing things with him in class. Easy enough class, though.

Very easy! he's kind of intimidating sometimes and doesnt always like if you disagree w/him. he gives out possible exam questions ahead of time and 5 or 10 out of those will be on the exam. If you know the answers&questions you will get A's on exams. Never even gave a final exam, gave a really easy group project instead.

He is the easiest professor to teach social work. He gives you all 20-25 test questions beforehand, then selects 10 to test you on, but he breaks up the test between 2 days = 5 questions each test day.

Overall, his teaching skills were lacking a certain spark. I think I heard crickets more than student voices in the room. He also lack communication skills with people that does not fit in his mold. He does pick favorites among the female population too. Trust me. You will either fall asleep or hide in the back of the class to text you buddies.

His class was fairly interesting and at first I thought I would do poorly in his class b/c of our difference of opinions. However, he seemed only intriged by my views and beliefs. He was a little hard to comprehend (as far as what it was he was looking for as an answer). All said, his class was fairly interesting.

I loved Mr. Engram. I had a lot of respect for him. He talked alot about his experiences which I thought was interesting. If you read the book and he knows your doing the work he will give you and A. I had him two semesters in a row and would take him again. Either you love him or hate him.

has a ton of experience doing everything involving social work. he is constantly stressing how much you need the text book, but i never bought it and still got an A in the class. he's a little all over the place but i liked him. i learned a ton, and it wasn't just from him but from the many 'field trips'

I had Professor Engram for intro to soc work and sw51 and consider him one my favorite professors. He is an easy grader, but found out through other people if you have a disagreement with him he will be unfair. I had a number of discussions with him outside of class and found it very useful and interesting.. he is understanding if you talk to him

He is a unfair grader. The class was just one big discussion. Fairly boring. You have to read by yourself and discuss in class. he gives you quiz every week and it does count to you grade. Also, he likes to do anything he wants, such as he can change your presentation date without any announcement.

If he likes you its an A. If you talk in his class( even if what you say does not make any sense) its an A. If you sit there because you think he makes zero sense its a C... go figure. How can one participate in a class when the clarity of the content and the assignments is unclear. He changes his mind to much and is very confusing on due dates.

He was alright. I did well in his class because I knew what I was doing, but some other people probably didn't do so well. I think overall he is pretty decent.

I found Prof Engram's class to be boring but easy, and until the last day of class, thought he was mediocre at best. On the last day of class, we had a disagreement that demonstrated his immaturity and inability to handle conflict. In fact, months later I saw him and said hello, and all he would say to me was "You were wrong about everything."

He's a great teacher. He really cares about the students and wants them to learn as much as possible. He is a very fair grader and is willing to meet with you if extra help is needed. He's definitely one of the best in the department. He knows the material very well.

his grading is very objective and he treats you noticeably different if he does not like you. very condescending and very rude. he is a horrible man and he definitely has issues. if you would like some one to lower your self-esteem, go to him otherwise avoid him at all costs if possible
