ANTH 101
Introduction to Cultural Diversity
1*
Pros: -Only having to sit there for 50 minute sessions



-Unintentionally hilarious (after 4 different classes of her trying to make sound come out of her laptop, she had to call a tech guy in)



Cons: -Voice is truly horrendous, I pity whomever human or pets may live with her.

-Has no idea what she is talking about, but she is ALWAYS right. There is no arguing with her.

-Boring as all hell.

-Nipples show through her shirt and I've seen the underside of her big black belly way too many times.

-She is unprofessional, uninteresting, and uneducated.

-Her quizes are extremely difficult to ace. Some of the have SEVEN fill in the blanks to one question and its not like you can just look them up, the answers are usually from her pea sized brain.

-Had to write two papers for her. The 1st paper I got a 77. Then, a week later, it changed to a 0 because my margins were wrong.....um, WHAT?! YOU GAVE ME A 77 ALREADY. So I guess she didnt actually read my paper until she gave me the 0, she just slapped on the 77 to hold me over. She did let me redo (as well as anyone else who got 0's) So I did, and got my 77 back. Then she said I could redo it again for a higher grade and showed me what to correct. So I redid it AGAIN, made the corrections she said to make, and no change in grade, she just made more corrections and said I could redo it again. So i did AGAIN and received no grade back because she was "behind." --Also did I mention that she has literally has no lesson plan for the course?





-She is Drexel's biggest nightmare. She can single handily bring down the university's reputation. Fire the lady Drexel, it is clear that she is too old and unqualified for work.

Cons: Not only are her exams hard, but her atrocious grammar makes things even harder. Her voice is like nails on a chalkboard. She makes no attempts to know or understand the students (it took her 5 weeks to learn to pronounce a girls simple name).
I personally am one to enjoy a challenging professor, but Owens is just ridiculous. Her lectures are rants about her opinion on various subjects. The plan for every class is just her improvising one of her idiotic lectures. The exams are nonsense questions with the grammar of a down's syndrome 12 year old. Nothing in the book is ever discussed in class so do not waste your money. You will leave knowing nothing about sociology and maybe even hating it. Myrtle Owens is hands down the worst professor at Drexel. I have no grudge or hate towards her but its a fact. Take her and you will regret and hate every minute you have to sit in the hellhole she calls class.

Her grading is quasi-objective, but she did a horrible job of teaching. She skipped class once, she was late a few times, she NEVER was organized, her tests were NEVER made by her (they were taken from a HORRIBLE book), and her 'compassion' for students is as transparent as her dedication toward their education.

Take her at your own risk.

Pros: Flexible with deadlines

Respect student's opinions.
Cons: Talks extremely slow. - Boring

Doesn't teach. Cannot complete a thought.

Can repeat 2 minutes content for 50 mins.

Unorganized: Her project doesn't have a rubric.

She tends to favor black students. She love talking about racism, can go on and on about it for days.

Her exams are online. Most of the questions will be on things that she spent 30 seconds in class on. If you ask questions, she will drag on for 45 mins and your question still remains unanswered. Agree with other reviews about her grammar in exam questions. There are many obvious errors / drag on sentences. Even a foreign student (like me) can tell that her English is really really bad.

She was horrible!!!!!! The first class she mentioned "I tend to favor black people especially guys but I try not to grade them different, but sometimes it happens". Her tests are online but really hard. There are 6 observation papers which really bring up ur grade and attendence is 15% so go to class. I would NEVER retake her and never recommend her. She doesnt know what she is talking about most of the class and doesnt really teach about the subject. Drexel needs to observe her for a term. She needs to go. This class was sooo unenjoyable!!!!!!!

replies late to emails

Her class seems really easy to get an A in...however you will realize after the first test that its not so easy. Her tests are never on what she lectures about or what is in the book. If you want to do well on the tests, stay after class and tell her you don't understand the test and she will give you every answer. If you can avoid taking her, please do so... you will end up regretting taking her.

ANTH 101
Introduction to Cultural Diversity
1*
Pros: 8 quizzes that are open book, and are completed online



6 papers that are 1-2 pages



1 final paper that is copying the 6 papers you wrote and then adding an introduction and conclusion to it. Basically like a portfolio
Cons: Terrible grader



Does not give timely feedback



She is terrible at presenting the information



Class is boring
By far one of the worst professors I ever had. The material is interesting, but the way she presents it is just terrible. She sounded like she was going to croak and die every time she opened her mouth. She counts attendance as a big component of the grade, but after like the 5th week I found it a struggle to go to that class because it was so boring and she was such a terrible public speaker. Also, she does not know anyone's names, so if you participate in class, make sure you tell her your name or you won't get any credit. Make sure to go so class, even if it is a struggle. She will sometimes change assignment details, and if you miss a class than you will never hear about it again and your grade will suffer. Also, expect her to take 1-2 weeks to respond to an email if you email her, and expect her to never be at her office during office hours. Better yet, just do not take her class at all!!!!! If you have to take Anthropology 101 as a requirement for your major, DO NOT TAKE IT WITH MYRTLE OWENS!!!!

ANTH 101
Introduction to Cultural Diversity
1*
Worst professor I have ever had. She is extremely unprofessional, showing up to class with literally no plan as to what to discuss in class. Each class is a lesson in improvisation. Class lectures were boring, disjointed,and extremely irrelevant with almost no information pertaining to the text. Professor Owens does not care about semantics, syntax, paper composition, or eloquence; her focus lies solely on whether one writes what she wants (in other words, she is not accepting of differing viewpoints). This woman has absolutely no concept of what paper warrants an A rather than a B, it is as if she looked at the papers and picked a letter grade out at random. One class discussion revolved around animal torture, and it was so graphic I wanted to puke... I am no longer able to drink milk because of her lecture, I just cant get the information out of my head. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS, you will be extremely sorry if you do. Send her to Gitmo, I think she would be a more effective "enhanced interrogation method" than waterboarding...

ANTH 101
Introduction to Cultural Diversity
2**
Pros: Lots of opportunities to boost your grade on papers

Responds quickly to emails

No final
Cons: Weekly quizzes and discussions

Does not stay consistent with grading, due dates, and lecture
This class has weekly quizzes and discussion posts that are required, which can be tedious. The teacher seems a little spacey at times; I am pretty sure the way our attendance was graded changed on a daily basis. On the plus side, you have plenty of opportunities for re-writes on your papers that are about the ethnographies you read. So much so that she was still accepting re-writes of the first paper in week 9 (to me, that was a little ridiculous). However, since the papers are fairly important, it's a good opportunity to boost your grade, especially if you don't do well on the quizzes or discussion posts.

Pros: Allows you to use notes on tests
Cons: Boring

Can't Teach

Favorites students with liberal beliefs

Extremely Hard Tests

Talks Weird
She is the WORST professor I have ever had. I honestly haven't learned anything in her class. She rambles on about nothing relevant. We had an hour long discussion on "pig shit" one class. With that being said, you are not prepared for her tests. She does give out study guides but they are very general and impossible to follow. The only thing I thought was just okay about this class was she allows open book and notes tests. I still failed the first test though. Also, her nipples are always poking through her clothes. Um gross? Fire her and get her a bra!

Pros: Not a lot of work. One posting on your readings each week.
Cons: Too many to list
She is awful. During her class she rambles and has an annoying voice. Her exams are on nothing you talked about in class. Her nipples are always showing so that effing distracting and disgusting. The study sessions she does before exams are the only way you pass. If you're confused in her class you need to go up and ask questions after because she's incapable of teaching a class correctly. She's the worst teacher I've ever had.

Horrible professor. If I could give her 0 stars, I would. She was always late to class, never had a lesson plan ready, and forgot what she already taught. Her tests were all online and were really hard. A lot of the information was never discussed in class because she forgot to teach it. She also had MANY grammar and spelling mistakes on the exams, which is unprofessional. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone.

Sociology will be a very interesting class as long as you don't have this woman. She is seriously one of the worst teachers at Drexel. She tends to lose assignments and "forget" to give you credit for work you did. She tends to rant rather than teach the material on the exams. Attendence is required, so you'll want to stab your eyes out. Overall, you'll hate yourself for ever taking her.

This is a terrible teacher!!!!NEVER GET HER CLASS!!! I studied so hard and even read every materials. There's nothing she talked relevant to the test. BTW, the test was extremely difficult!! Just like she talk about 1+1=2 in class, but the test was how to write a program to control everything. And her weird accent drove me crazy. NEVER GET HER CLASS.

Get ready to write a 2-3 page paper per week. You will be required to then write a 9-11 page paper at the end of the term about all of your writings. Also will read around 3-5 books in this term and will assign a certain amount of chapters per class.



She is very uptight and will grade you this way. Hard grader and tons of writing/reading.

Although this version of Soc 101 with her could aptly be renamed Democrat 101, I enjoyed her as a teacher. She is very nice and really easy and wants her students to do well. Also, the work load seems like alot (reading 3 books) but she goes over them in class and basically tells you what you need to know for the test. Take her.
