SPAN 1110 - Accelerated Elementary Spanish
Pros: Awesome guy.
Cons: He expects a lot from you right off the bat. My high school's Spanish department blew, and UGA required me to start in this class, because of the years of Spanish I had in high school. Needles to say, I was far behind the other students, and i tried to talk to him about it, but he didn't really seem to care to help. :/

You get out of this class what you put into it. I took notes on the book and did the homework we were assigned and I have a 93 going into the final. The tests do require some studying for as well as the quizes and the projects are in class skits. Some of these were hysterical! The oral exam is the spawn of satan! make sure you have a good partner for that one. Even though the class was at 440-530 MF and 500-550 TR Casadont really makes it an enjoyable time. Just do your work and participate regularly and it will be one of your favorite classes! :]

Pros: He is a nice guy, and he tries to engage the class. He wants you to understand the material that is being taught. He grades fairly.
Cons: Lots of assessments
Casadont is a very nice guy and a good teacher. I really like him, but I had this class 5:00-6:15 TR. No one in my class ever wanted to talk because we were all really tired. He grades assignments fairly, and there are lots of grades in this class. It gets annoying having some assessment almost every class period. Unfortunately, he cannot change this since everything for this class is standardized by the department. I would definitely recommend him as a professor. I just wasn't crazy about having this class so late in the day.

Pros: easy content, quizzes, and tests
Cons: attendance is required
He is very nice and genuinely loves teaching. He will work with you if you're having problems and he tries to make sure everyone understands the material before he moves on. Great experience, definitely the best Spanish teacher I've ever had.

SPAN 2001

5*****
Pros: Casadont is a very nice man and a good teacher. He cares a lot about his students and he only wants them to succeed. He has a good sense of humor and understands that this is only SPAN 2001 and that his students are not going to be fluent. Compared to the other SPAN 2001 teachers, he is a very fair grader in regards to the oral exams and compositions. You get out what you put in
Cons: There are a lot of assignments. Near the middle of the semester, I felt like we had either a test, oral exam, composition, or some other assignment that required staying in and studying each week.
Great teacher, very understanding, doesn't grade the oral exams or the compositions too harshly. Keep Casadont if you are lucky enough to get him

Pros: Hands down one of the best teachers I have ever had. He cares so much about his students on a personal level and it always willing to help them. He never judges you based on how well you speak spanish and encourages class participation all the time. He also loves having "game days", where you play different vocab games, grammar games, or whatever he thinks of. Before every quiz he would take the time to answer questions about the material and make sure we felt confident going into it.



Amazing teacher, I took him for 2001 and 2002!
Cons: Zero cons.

Pros: He is nice, helpful when you ask for it, and doesn't make you do too many stupid assignments that aren't counted as a grade like other Spanish teachers do.
Cons: He doesn't provide an outline to the tests and quizzes like other Spanish teachers do.
Just memorize vocabulary and the general grammatical concepts of each chapter, and you will seriously be fine. I got an A and I don't think I paid attention once in class.

Pros: Really nice guy, he cares a lot about his students and if you go to his office hours, he helps you A LOT. And will take whatever time needed to help you; he's really patient.
Cons: He cares a lot about participation. If you're confident in speaking, it's great. But, if you're not, like most people in my class, it gets awkward and he gets frustrated. There's also a lot of assessments. But they're pretty easy.

Pros: Casadont is a very nice man and teaches with enthusiasm. He likes when students aren't afraid to volunteer and speak up, so do that. He also will go around the room and call on people to read or answer things so everyone is engaged and involved. Tests are medium difficulty.
Cons: No extra credit. Lots of Quia homework AND he would assign book homework. But it wasn't super hard homework.

Pros: Casadont is a great professor. He understands the workload that students have and has even ended class early a couple of times when we asked if we could go early! If you go to his office hours, he's always willing to help. There's not much required homework except for the online homework. You're sure to get an A or B out of this class.
Cons: There is absolutely nothing bad to say!

Pros: Very good professor! Very laid back and willing to help you with anything you have trouble understanding. Only workbook definitely helps boost your grade if you struggle on tests. Would definitely recommend for anyone trying to make an easy A.
Cons: You have a test or quiz or graded writing assignment nearly every week (but they really aren't that hard so it's not that stressful)

Pros: AWESOME.

laid back class. very helpful. Wants you to do well.

easy quizzes.
Cons: ummm, none !

he's a great teacher, but the online workbooks you have to do for the class take forever but are helpful...
He finds it very disrespectful to miss his class without telling him in advance. If you tell him in advance, your absence is excused and wont affect your grade.

Professor Casadont is a great spanish teacher. I can understand him and he was always willing to help the students. He was really understanding, unlike some teachers, towards Spanish not being our native language and he focused more on us practicing the language than grading us on our perfection.

He was a great teacher and really explained everything well. If you go to class, pay attention, and do the homework, you will be fine. I would definitely recommend taking him as I feel most Spanish classes require a lot of work.

Pros: Explains the material well and goes over it again if need be. Goes straight from the book so it's easy to study and know exactly what's on his quizzes and tests.
