Very straight forward professor. This is a lecture class and that is all she does, lecture. Material is interesting so its not too dreadful. Over a good teacher and a common college course.

She's a really good teacher but grades a little hard. As long as you study and keep up with the readings you should be fine. She's really easy to contact and very helpful in and out of the class room. Assignments are pretty easy. The lectures are oral sometimes (w/o powerpoint) but it's just to make sure you're paying attention. I really loved her!

I'm taking Paskey currently and I'm not very pleased. I really wish she would utilize powerpoints more because oral definitions are not helpful especially for an ANTHROPOLOGY CLASS. And I feel like I'm literally in elementary school all over again. Her style of teaching and tone are just not up to par for my expectations. Choose wisely!

Her class is pretty easy. As long as you take notes of her lectures and her clicker questions, you're pretty much good. Her exams are very easy. All of the exam questions are on the study guides. There aren't much homework. Most of the homework are easy as well. She lets your bring a note card for exams too. Overall, she's pretty awesome.

I really enjoyed this class. Professor Paskey is great. She knows the subject well and is very helpful if you ask her questions after class or at office hours. You need an iclicker for this class, so attendance is a must. 3 exams, no midterm. A portion of the exam is short answer. I received an A in class. Show up everyday and take GOOD notes!

All lectures and subject matter is explained very thoroughly. You wouldn't regret taking her for Anthropology. Clicker questions are always fun! An interesting class and a nice professor, take her!

This class is fun even if you're not interested in the subject matter before hand. Her lectures are easy to understand and not boring. For the test, some questions come from the anthropology matters boxes in the book so be sure to check those out. She is very approachable for office hours and very helpful.

Don't like her teaching style: talks kind of fast, so sometimes it's hard to follow through. Midterm was difficult: provide study guide with LOTS of topics, but on the exam, it was detailed!

I liked Professor Paskey, she's interested in the topic and teaches it well. Like others have said, she does grade papers like an English teacher, which is understandable. This is college not junior high. Her tests are average, just show up to class and take notes and you should be fine. It's a sure A if you do the work.

The reason students are required to take English is so that we are prepared to write for other things in life, like Anthro classes. So yes, Paskey grades like an English Professor but that's the way it should be.

People complain, but ignore it. When you can tell a professor loves the subject you can tell. She barely looks at her notes and can talk for the entire class about anthropology. If you use her hours she's helpful and uses her e-mail often to help as well. Spelling and grammar do count... but really, it's college people. What were you expecting?

One of my top 5 favorite teachers at CRC. She's very approachable and keeps the subject very interesting. Tests are easy and is willing to help out whenever students ask. I also took her for cultural anthro which was equally fun and easy. Can be stern when necessary - much appreciated quality.

People saying she grades like an english teacher must be really stupid. DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! english is my worst subject and I got 100% on ALL writing assignments. She said herself that she doesn't know the place of a comma. This class is an easy A and you learn a lot. She's a wonderful teacher.

A good instructor. She does a great job during lectures. Grades fairly on homework assignments. Some of the exam questions can be a bit tricky if you tend to overthink things. Overall not a difficult class and learned alot of interesting things.

The trick to this class is take the lecture and the lab its a lot of fun and one reinforces the other. She is a fun teacher and very accessible if you have any question you can email her, she will look over papers before you turn them in and let you know if you need to fix anything. Just put in the work and you will be pleasantly surprised.
