Pros: - Extremely nice

- Cares so much about his students

- Facilitates a lot of interesting discussion

- Class itself isn't too hard

- Is willing to talk about/explain literally anything having to do with law enforcement
Cons: - None!
To be honest, Dr. Silk is the best teacher I've had at UGA hands down. He is very nice, helpful, funny, and very knowledgeable. He's the UGA police captain and has worked in policing for 20 years so he really knows his stuff when it comes to law enforcement. I've never had a teacher that cares as much about his students as Dr. Silk does. He values each and every one of his students and legitimately cares about how you do in class and in life. The class itself isn't too bad. Most classes we would start out talking about news stories and current events and then he'd lecture for the rest of the time. His lectures are interesting and he loves to facilitate insightful discussion in class. There are three tests, but they're pretty easy as long as you go to class and study your notes. He assigns an 8 page paper that is fairly work and research intensive, but ultimately it's not the end of the world. He's a very fair grader and will do everything in his power to help you succeed in his class. He's seriously not just a great teacher, but he's a great person and I wish he taught more classes at UGA so I could take him again.
