Pros: Easy A Class

Professor is funny and makes lots of jokes

Easy take home midterm and final

You get out early from class often
Cons: BORING class

requires attendance

professor rambles A LOT
Overall hes an ok professor, hes older so he tends to get off topic and ramble forever. The class itself is super easy with take home midterm and final and attendance determining your grade. He requires attendance and its a struggle to find the motivation to go to this class because you don't have to go to get a good grade. He wants you to read articles to discuss in class but he doesn't check to see if you read, so you really don't have to.

5*****
Pros: 2 exams- both easy. 5 free-response questions on each TAKE HOME exams

If you take notes and answer the questions correctly (like using the book to help answer a question when it asks for it. Duh.), you will get an A
Cons: No pizza party for us at the end :(

If you don't attend class often, your grade suffers. Legit an EASY A if you just show up to class and put in the 10 hours of work for the entire semester.
Interesting professor who legit ended up giving life and dating advice half the time. He's a great professor.

Pros: TAKE HOME MIDTERM AND FINAL. REALLY FLEXIBLE AND SWEET PROFESSOR. REALLY FUNNY. GETS TO KNOW EACH STUDENT BEYOND THE CLASSROOM. PIZZA PARTY AT END OF SEMESTER=FREE FOOD=WHAT UGA IS ALL ABOUT!
Cons: Lectures aren't organized, but as long as you read the book on time, you won't need the lectures or the notes. Unless he asks you to cite class discussions or examples of various topics on midterm & final.
TAKE HOME MIDTERM AND FINAL.

Pros: - The class consists of a take home mid-term essay, a take home final essay, and class participation points (basically showing up to class).

- Dr. Castenell is a really chill guy and he grades pretty easy on the essays.
Cons: - You do have to go to class, he does take attendance often, if not everyday.
If you need a 3000-or-4000 level elective class, definitely take this one! It's a pretty easy A!

MOTIVATION
5*****
One of the best professors I've ever had - loved his class and general insights on life, very knowledgable and experienced regarding research and application of why people do what they do, motivations for behavior, social-cognitive motivation, etc. (related to education and beyond) - take his class if you have the opportunity to do so!

Pros: Great teacher and a nice guy.

Two take home tests.

Laid back class.
Cons: Tests can be long (10+ pages each) but if you do the work they aren't bad and he isn't a very harsh grader.
If you need an elective credit, take this class!
