SPAN 2001
Intermediate Spanish
1*
Pros: She knows Spanish and is a fairly nice person. She allowed for one homework extension for the semester which was nice.
Cons: Graded almost the whole class so harshly for an intermediate spanish class. Told my group on the oral exam that we each made one mistake so we got a B+. This is not a high-level spanish class, there is no reason for her grading this way.

She doesn't pay attention to the class. t never once participated, my friend always did and we both got the same participation grade.
Always late, forgets to grade assignments, does not reinforce the material in class at all, just makes you do activities out of the book for way too long to waste time. i have had wonderful professors at UGA for Spanish, but she was not one of them. She somehow made the very easy material difficult and made the entire class not want to even learn it. That's not the role of a professor.

Though Connect being the worst software in the world isn't her fault, when it would have ridiculous amounts of homework due on a test day that it would often be over material we never covered or "didn't need to know," she would not change it or cancel it.

Pros: very clear instructions

very willing to help
Cons: lots of homework
The spanish 1110 classes are standardized, so the tests and homework are all the exact same. That being said, I would highly recommend Professor Hagood. She is very straightforward and has no confusing accent which is a plus. She is very good about working with students and making sure they do well. As long as you keep up with your work, you'll do well. She explains exactly what's going to be on quizzes and tests like the content and how much everything is worth, which is very helpful.

Pros: I would definitely recommend taking any Spanish class with Samantha Hagood. She teaches you everything that you need to know for the quizzes and tests without assigning extra unnecessary homework. She grades very fairly, and explains the concepts very thoroughly.
Cons: The main assignments for the classes like the four main quizzes, midterm, and final are all cumulative. However, Ms. Hagood prepares her students very well for them, and their grades, for the most part, end up being considerably high.

Pros: SHE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST SPANISH TEACHER YOU WILL EVER HAVE!!!!! I encourage anyone who is looking for a Span 1110 class to take her. She is very sweet and works with students to make sure that they will pass her class with an A or B. The online homework is pretty easy and I ended up making an A- out of her class without spending hours studying.
Cons: There are none!

Great Professor. I learned more Spanish this year in an upper level spanish than I did in my lower level. She wants you to do well in class, therefore she makes the content clear ad=nd understandable for all students.

Cons: My course was at 5 PM, which meant that I wasn't all about participation most days. I got a mediocre grade for participation for chiming in every once in a while.

Dr. Hagood is a very good professor. He isn't a native speaker so her accent will not get in the way and she explains the concepts well. Spanish comes pretty easy to me so the class would often become boring at times. Overall the class is fairly easy.
