"Tough Grader" "Lectures are long" "Better Like Group Projects"

Not a good professor with communications, not helpful, taking her online course and she gives out a lot of assignments with a group project that some students don't communicate well with emailing and Professor don't seem to do much about handling situations where groups don't do well with. She even said let her know so she'd fix it. Worst class!

Anthro 300 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a really good lecturer. However, her test is kinda hard. She put a lot of questions about the videos, and readings in the class on the test. Only half of the test is related to her lectures and the books. Attendance is a must if you want a good grade in her class. The class is really fun and interesting.

anth 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Took good notes and even copied down the i-clicker questions and answers. Thought I would pass my first test. NOT EVEN. I received a D. Her tests barely related to the lectures. She basically asked questions about everything except what she lectured about. Tough grader. She is a want to be English teacher when it comes to papers. Late policy sucks.

ANTH 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very straightforward, clear professor. Make sure you purchase the textbook and an i-clicker because both will be used throughout the class. She can be a tough grader, however the class is very straightforward and easy to digest. 3x5 notecard allowed per exam - extremely helpful for writing down terms like "Sahelanthropus tchadensis" and such.

ANTH 300 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

There are several assignments throughout the semester, weekly discussion boards, and a group assignment due at the end; you communicate with your group through the discussion boards, and four exams. The exams can be pretty tough, so be sure to study. She can be a strict grader on the assignments, so cite your sources properly.

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.

ANTHRO 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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!

ANTH 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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!

ANTH 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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!

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.
