Curr 304 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Participation matters"

All of the assignments were easy A's. The unit project was a big chuck on this class but she WORKED with you and HELPED you if you asked. Reading some of these responses are crazy. This class was an easy 4.0 you just have to be willing to go to class, and ask for help.

CURR 304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

By far the absolute worst teacher I have taken at EMU. She is unclear and doesn't allow for much creativity. The unit project should be valuable about something you would be passionate about teaching and she takes that away and makes the project pointless. Take this class with anyone else.

CURR 304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

WORST professor I have ever had. Her lectures were useless, she is condescending to students, and the assignment directions were unclear. You are better off taking this class with another professor but if you can't, don't try to do anything original with your unit, just do the unit she wants you to do.

AVOID DR. HARDER AT ALL COSTS! She is the worst professor I have ever had at EMU. She is very unclear with her expectations and is just an all around HORRIBLE professor/person.

THIS PROFESSOR IS TERRIBLE! NEVER TAKE HER! She is extremely unclear. She doesnt aware you of assignments and she expects you to complete them. She is not accommodating or fair. I couldn't wait to write a course evaluation for her but when the time came, she stood in the room and watched! She is unprofessional and scatterbrained! AVOID AT ALL COSTS

You are crazy if you take Dr. Harder. She's nice and tries to help but will makes no sense. She will say one thing and in the same breathe with contradict herself. I'm am a A/A- student and feel that this will be the first class I fail. She waits until the last minute to grade assignments and her comments are confusing. Good LUCK!

Her lectures are pointless! You learn almost nothing about making lesson plans. She took weeks sometimes longer to return graded work. Not only should she be fired, whoever hired her should be fired for the oversight.

This professor is an excellent source for help at the graduate level. She challenges your thinking and helps you to focus in on your personal beliefs! I would take every class with her!

Ginnie is very helpful and is always available for e-mail contact. She is willing to help you with any questions you have and challenges your thinking. She is a brilliant person and she tries to help her students become the same.

CURR305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Unjustly arrogant is the perfect description. Within 2 minutes, she thought she "pegged" me. She couldn't have been further from accurate. In a department that wants to teach about diversity, this prof. is a prefect example of how NOT to teach. Dr. Harder, you really missed out with me!!!

Cur305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Probably the worst professor i have ever had. Gives you an assignment tells you what she wants, you turn it in and get it back because its not how she wants it now. Rinse and repeat and you might get it right. Little direction, and her lectures are HORRIBLE. I feel cheated after wasting tuition on this class with her.

There is alot of work in this course. Prof available to help you on plans. I'm glad she was hard on me with the unit now. I understood how to do a unit while other student teachers were having trouble.

Unclear, vague, unjustly arrogant, not thoughtful, confrontational, controlling. You get the idea. Her instruction is muddled and scatter-brained. In the wrong profession.

Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT take this professor. Her directions are unclear, she is not approachable, and the unit you put together is nothing you will want to use in the future. She even yelled at our class....a waste of tuition.

Take someone else! When answering questions, she goes off on a tangent into her own views and agenda. You eventually forget what you question was much less what and useful information she may have provided. Nothing she covers in class will help you write your unit. I did not use the book at all. Seriously find another professor.

Harder is a very confusing lady. Just keep guessing what she wants and constantly show her what you are working on for your unit to keep getting her input. She thinks she knows everything about every subject area so your unit has to be her unit. If SS major pick something not in her life time.

She's rude and very arrogant. It's a challenge to pass her class the first time around. Take this class with another prof. for sure.

She is cool outside of class and very nice just not approachable about class work and very unorganized. Her lectures have no alignment with Unit Project that you need a 73% or better on to pass the course, you'll find yourself guessing as to what you should be doing for the project and struggling to get the grade needed.
