Ok, there's a lot of venom in these ratings of Jodi. Sadly, its almost completely justified. It's been a year since I had her class and it still haunts me as the worst class I've had. Shockingly biased. Painfully boring. She has a very specific feminist agenda so agree 100% or shut up. I got an A but would trade it for a D if I could forget her.

Jodi Barnes should not be allowed to teach college students. Nor should she be allowed to teach 5 year olds (not that there’s a huge difference). She is unprepared, afraid to speak in front of the class, boring, biased, unfair, and generally a horrible teacher! HORRIBLE.

If you are thinking about taking any class with her, even for a second..smack yourself and find a new class. Yes, you get an A in the end, but it is not worth the hell. I have never hated college more than the 2 hours a week I had to endure her pathetically boring and pointless lectures. DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN TAKE HER CLASS!

All the statements made of Jodi so far are definitely true. However, I loved the class readings and enjoyed the topics and discussions highly. Jodi clearly needs to work on her teaching skills, but she does know what she is talking about when she does get her act together. She is nice outside of class, and I truly appreciated this class in the end.

Nothing in life comes easy and this class proves it. Easy to get an A, but you have to endure real torture to get it. The teacher literally cannot teach. She is disorganized beyond anything I've ever seen in my life. The class is basically just silent for an hour. She fumbles around with her words. Remember: Endure the tortue=A

She sucks. The class sucks. Being hit in the face with a baseball bat would be more fun than sitting through her boring, repetitive, pathetic excuse for lectures. She is not intelligent enough to teach college students and we talk about the same boring things every class. This isn't just another boring easy A ....its hell on earth! RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This class is terrible. She doesnt know how to teach yet. The silences are innumerable. Preparation is clearly lacking. She cuts down people who express contrary opinions or ask questions. She has a lot to work on.

Oh My God...She is the worst teacher I have had in twenty years of life. BORING AS HELL! there is actually A LOT of work (blog entry EVERY week, presentations, and several papers) but amazingly you still learn absolutely nothing. to sum up: lots of work+worst teacher ever+repetitive class discussion = horrible class!

Terrible teacher. Class was boring, repetitive, and painful to sit through. She is extremely socially awkward, still a grad student. If anyone expressed an opinion contrary to the extremely radical social theory she taught as fact, she would act as if they had commited a crime and not let them finish their thoughts. DON'T EVER TAKE THIS CLASS!!!!

DO NOT take this class by any means, terrible teacher. If it wasnt for classmates participating the class would be silence the entire time. She is socially awkward and is not very helpful. Over the entire semester, we talked about the same thing.
