4****
Pros: Really nice teacher. She gives lots of extra credit opportunities, and is always very helpful. The class is fairly easy and the book isn't really needed.
Cons: Can get boring. There are a lot of guest speakers.
Overall this was a good class. It was pretty easy and interesting. She assigns readings, but as long as you pay attention in class, you don't really need the book.

Pros: I hardly ever go to class and have an A. Easy material and she's very sweet. Tells you exactly what's going to be on the tests.
Cons: The class is boring and she brings in lots of guest lecturers, which is confusing. She tries to get everyone involved with a "debate" and putting us in groups to make worksheets over the lectures. Totally pointless.
Dr. Wilde is really nice, and the material is mind-numbingly simple. After making a 98 on the first test, I started going only on important days like test review and the silly "debate". I have an A. Definitely do the bonus paper, it adds five points onto your final grade and takes twenty minutes.

Pros: Lots of videos and guest lecturers

Exams are ridiculously easy

One group project that is also ridiculously easy

Never opened the textbook once - don't buy one; she posts all lectures on eLC and provides study guides for every tests

Some questions on the test are student generated, and they are posted on eLC with an answer guide

Never tests on anything that she doesn't cover in class

Attendance is not necessary, but she will give out attendance quizzes as free extra credit
Cons: The most boring class I've taken all semester

You walk out of class feeling like the world is going to end, but whatevs

Pros: THE EASIEST CLASS YOU WILL EVER TAKE
Cons: Literally none
This class is a hidden gem that satisfies the life science requirement for a lot of majors. I took it to avoid biology and it's one of the best decisions I've made in college. She co-taught my class with Dr. Green (the English one. There's another Dr. Greene that's not as fun) and it was great. If you do the extra credit paper, it's 5 points on your final average for 30 minutes of effort. She's super sweet and you can study for 30 minutes before each exam and get an A.

Pros: she's a very nice lady and super easy to approach.

no real homework

tests are pretty straight forward

she makes study guides for the tests with all the info you need to know
Cons: tests only have about 30 questions so if you miss a couple it is easy to not make an A

confusing group work assignments
didn't use the textbook, would recommend not wasting the money on it.

anyway, loved Dr. Wilde she was awesome.

Pros: Lots of extra credit opportunites! A +5 pt paper, and random assignments throughout the semester. Handouts given in class follow lecture perfectly, gives study guide for exam. No reading required.
Take the class, don't buy the book you'll never use it. Study for the test, easy A.

Pros: Dr. Wilde is an incredibly nice professor, and treats this class as a light class for non-science majors. She's passionate about the environment, but not at all in an imposing manner. She frequently jokes about how high her students grades are in her classes, so hopefully that gives an indication that this class is fairly easy.
Cons: Can be a little disorganized.
I loved this class. It was interesting, and if I didn't feel like going it wasn't a big deal. My final grade was over a 100. I studied for the final an hour before it was scheduled. This class is incredibly easy for anyone, so long as you know how to look over information and use some logical test taking skills. Highly recommended for anyone needing a science class for their major.

Pros: Very easy class.

Assignments are rare and super easy.

Lots of extra credit.

Dr. Wilde is very nice.

All lectures and test review is on ELC.

Videos and guest lectures.
Cons: Doesn't count for the Franklin College science requirement.

Tests do require some studying for an A.
A good class to take to fulfill the life science requirement.

Sometimes does little 1 point in-class assignments for attendance, but many people come only for tests.

Pay attention during the videos; there are test questions on them.

Pros: The class is not a hard class, just show up and you'll do fine. Thankfully it was co-taught with Prof. Green otherwise it would have been unbearably boring.
Cons: She doesn't speak very loudly and isn't very good at explaining things, but she will answer any questions that you have.
Much better alternative than BIOL for a life science credit if you're not going to be a science major

Pros: She's very nice and tries very hard to make sure that everyone has a chance to get a good grade. She mixes up her teaching style and brings in guest lecturers to change the flow of the class and make it more interesting than just straightforward lecturing.
Cons: The subject can be very dry. A lot of it is common sense, but some test questions are unbelievably specific.

Pros: The class was really easy and there was extra credit all the time. We watched most of planet earth throughout the semester.
Cons: The class was BORING! I fell asleep every day. I still got an A though.
Pick your poison. Its boring but really easy. If you want an intro course to the Forestry school its really easy.

Pros: Easy class. LOTS and LOTS of extra credit... can get up to 10 points in your total grade. Finals are straight from previous exams plus 5 new ones. Don't even need to go to class.
Cons: If you take the test thinking you can ace it studying 10 minutes... not so much. But its easy so studying 20 minutes will do.

I took this class online and I would absolutely recommend it. It's incredibly easy with very little work at all involved. I probably spent 1-2 hours on this class every few weeks. It's an easy A

Watch Planet Earth and other cool documentaries.

If you just study the notes she posts, you will do well on the tests. She also has a possible extra credit paper.
