I found Prof. Cato extremely helpful especially with the Thesis being he is a stickler about this. He practically hand fed us the information and assignments during this intersession class. He broke everything down to the LCD. I feel I learned a fair amount of info to help me in the near future. I would definitely take Prof. Cato again if needed.

Literally the worst professor I've ever had by FAR. Unorganized, interrupts speeches constantly, grammatical/spelling errors all over anything he hands out, doesn't stick to what he says in class in terms of due dates or grading criteria, arrogant, rude, waste of time to listen to... do yourself a favor and don't take his classes.

Excellent dedicated instructor to his profession and subject matter. Critcal of sloppily prepared work. A perfectionist and he expects a student to do their personal best. He imparts skills that will last a lifetime.

A difficult professor, but an excellent one. Has years of experience; uses his own book for the course; a stickler on thesis statement. Personally, I found Professor Cato to be very well organized and sticks to his syllabus. If you are willing to do the required work you will get an A...He grades fair and gives you what you have earned.

A terrible teacher. He has trouble explaining the simplest idea. He is extremely unorganized. One of the worst teachers I've ever had.

Cato is cool. The class is more about content than the actual speeches. He's a nice man and is willing to work with students to get the work done. If you don't want to do any work, don't take the class. If you're a hard working student who does the work...you'll get an A. I like him and recommend him.

A very unorganized teacher. Not difficult to get an A or B if you do all the work. Lots of essays for a speech class. Overall: a mediocre teacher who seems like he just started teaching even though he's been doing it for a long time.

If you like a teacher that favors African-American students, you are in! He definitely has his favorites, which makes the class somewhat annoying. He is very unorganized in regards to scheduling speeches too.

Easy teacher with easy way of teaching. Class consist of personal homeworks and group discussions/works. Base grading on the "points" system. Also, the class consists of an essay. Overall, it's an easy "A" class.

Easy class, but what annoyed me during the duration is the lack of control over the students who are disrespectful over him. I don't care if other students disrespects him but if it distract my learning, he should grow some balls and kick those idiots out

Somewhat easy class, but Cato is a teacher that can be really annoying to some. He makes his political beliefs very clear and can be quite hostile to those that disagree. He loves to embarass people sometimes by asking them VERY personal questions.
