Comment:
A fantastic Professor and very wise. The information presented in class is close to her heart and this is apparent when she lectures. She engages the class and pushes you to develop a well-informed opinion of your own. She would not hesitate to sit down with you and go over your work, even after she's already wrote an essay in response to your own

Comment:
I found the information interesting, but I did not like Claire which made it difficult to enjoy a class I took as an elective. I didn't understand the paper outline I went for help and I still came out questioning what I am suppose to write about. I also found she was not open to other peoples ideas which made me quite upset. Won't take her again.

3, 500 word Assignments a Month. Your constantly reading. She also assigns a term paper. Mid-term and final. She is however good with giving feed back and help on assignments during office hours.

My most favoritest prof ever! Fair amount of work but it's worth it, I learnt so much. Marks fair and she is very clear about what she expects from you. Only one text you have to buy too. I would take another class with her in a second.

Comment:
Claire is probably one of the best profs I've had in my 5 yrs of university. She is extremely demanding but fair and highly interesting. The workload is steep - but you will learn tonnes from her. I highly recommend taking a class from her - especially soc307 - one of the best classes I've ever taken!

Comment:
This was a very interesting class for me, but very far from easy. The work load in this class was among the hardest I have had in my 5 years of university. Balancing the readings, and assignments are hard enough in this class alone, without taking into consideration any other classes you might be taking. Great prof, great class, too much work.

This is the most interesting class I have ever taken. Very interesting. Great proff. Encourages class participation. She gives out class outlines. Also gives out a mid-term evaluation to find out how she's doing as a proff - so it shows she actually cares. I would recommend Claire.

Claire is good at lecturing and giving good notes. Her tests aren't too difficult and she gives lots of choice. However she'll argue with anything anyone has to say in class and she is a harder marker than most. She was an okay prof, I wouldn't go out of my way to take another class from her.

Comment:
I did well in this class, but not as well as other soc. classes. She is tough to please, and there is tons of group work. I would not take another class from her because I felt like nothing was good enough and that is too discouraging. your paper will have to be perfect to get decent. No higher than 75 is a fair comment.

Worst Prof ever. Always says that you are wrong. Toughest marker ever....never gives higher than a 75% ever and will give you the same mark no matter what or how hard you will try. Takes first impressions to the max.
