POL 1013
Intro to American Politics
5*****
He is an awesome teacher! His lectures are easy to understand and are very entertaining. Unlike most politics teachers he presents a very unbiased view on government and politicians. His jokes are funny and he often lets class out early. The only downside is that the tests are difficult. Usually eighty multiple choice questions that include roughly 30 'select all that apply' questions. If you miss one of the applicable choices on a 'select all that apply' you get the entire question wrong.

5*****
Pros: Tests are relatively easy as long as you pay attention in class. Some of his "pick all correct" questions are tricky so be careful! Most of what is covered on the tests are on his blackboard under review sheets.
Cons: There is an iclicker quiz at the beginning of every class except on test days. They typically range from 5-10 questions. As long as you read the material that he tells you to read before hand, they should be a breeze.
He gives out a total of 10 extra credit points added to a test grade for writing a paper (1 point for every page). He is very conservative and will keep you awake more than other teachers can since he talks loudly and emphasizes certain things like "abc" anyone but clinton....

3***
Pros: He gives our reviews on Blackboard.
Cons: He rambles on during class. He doesn't really teach the material.
He is good to listen to, but it is hard to take notes on what he says. He tends to ramble on about things that are not going to be on the test.

5*****
Pros: Extremely good lecturer. Keeps it really interesting.
Cons: Select all questions on test are a boom or bust. You miss one you miss the entire question.
Takes I-Clicker attendance everyday when you go to class. And then a quiz after the attendance.
