Professor does not do role call, does not give credit for attending class. With more than 4 hours of work a week; I found class not worth the 3 credits. Extra credit requires you to attend meetings outside of school and you will have to go to at least 2 of them for maximum extra credit. Tests is not the professors; generated by the book instead.

Quizzes/midterm/final are all open-book/open-note, and he gives you multiple attempts to take them. The rest of the grade is determined by WEEKLY writing assignments (sometimes up to 2 papers may be due within a week). Sub to a news outlet not req'd, just look online for articles. Lenient grader, lots of extra credit. Easy A.

I don't know why everyone is complaining about the two writing assignments. It's easy and he gives you full credit for doing it. Take notes everyday and he practically gives you the answers before the test day.

I took International Relations online from Frank, so I don't know much about him on a one-on-one basis, but he was very communicative over email and answered questions pretty promptly. Textbook use was high and sometimes directions weren't clear, but the class was pretty easy in the long run.

If you take this class, make sure you put at least 2-4 hours on it per week. You will have to do 1 article, 1 writing assignment,and 1 quiz per week. It is a fair class.

Break down of syllabus. Required weekly from you : Article assignment (more then 5 pages to read) 1 hour, written assignment 1 hour, reading a chapter (30 pages) 1 hour, studying 1 hour, quiz 1 hour, equals to 5 hours a week. For only 3 credits take something else. Frank tries to get you to buy a subscription to the Sacramento bee, it is not needed

Clear and straightforward. Very routine oriented. Each week we had VERY small writing assignments that were VERY, VERY easy to complete. And his class was fun, too!

This professor is NOT for anyone taking 10 or more units. He assigns two written assignments based on online articles per week, 1 online quiz per week, and 1 chapter of reading per week. Class participation is a must. Too much work if you're also taking 10 other units for other classes. Take someone else, unless you're majoring in politics.

must attend class it will help you at the end with 25 extra point which just might boost that grade into the next bracket. the quizzes are online straight from the text book. his test are fairly easy make sure to attend class the day before, he does a jeopardy still practice and gives majority of the answers, write them down and study.

He was the most interesting teacher I've ever had. He made every lesson so clear and easy to understand. Coming from someone who has no interest in politics, he definitely made it interesting and fun. He's so funny! Easy A if you do all the work. And the work is manageable. Not too hard. :) HIGHLY recommend him.

FANTASTIC TEACHER. I came into this class hating politics & having no intention of learning it, just trying to get it done with... however, if you go to class, attendance not mandatory, it will be very rewarding. I learned a ton and his lectures are interesting and welcoming. Easy HW, easy tests. He's a perfect example of what a teacher should be.

Professor Frank requires a perfect balance in requiring enough workload to maximize learning, yet not too much where its overwhelming and takes away from the learning experience. He is extremely attentive to his students, and is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. A+ Professor, I plan to take another class with him next semester.

Dude loves his job, which makes it bearable. But if you arent interested in the subject: doesnt take attendance, lectures are all online, quizzes? online. three in class. easy if you read the book. final is mult choice very easy. gives a lot of E/C opprt. honestly it is very difficult to fail this class. Went every three weeks, did just fine.

Online quizzes, weekly article analysis and writing assignments. The class isn't too hard. He makes politics interesting and offers extra credit. Be sure to do ALL your article analysis and writing assignments;the missed points WILL affect your grade.Attendance is not mandatory but you will miss vital info that is on the quizzes.
