Comment:
Assigns a lot of papers and marks them very hard. Tests weren''t bad but had a lot of writing. The course material was interesting but the I didn''t like how much you had to participate in the forums and he didn''t make it clear that you must comment on others'' posts to get full participation marks.

BRUTAL!!! took this class as a web class and he was extremely unorganized. Dates were contradicting one another, his information had numerous spelling mistakes and was very confusing to follow, and he would not offer any help or further explain a question. Horrible teacher.

Taking this as an online class and he is completely disorganized. Due dates change unexpectedly all the time, even the final he posted was wrong. He posted an extra assignment (in error) which I completed before he took it done stating it was a mistake. Horribly unorganized

Took this class as a block during reading week. Assigned 100 web video seminars that were painful (didn't bother), one textbook (skimmed it) that he barely referenced, and 100 articles, pdfs, etc. (heavily referenced). I found him very amusing. Kept things interesting, even though the topic wasn't exactly gripping. Mark was fair, sorry he's gone.

Nice guy, boring class. Found his marking to be a bit on the tough side so if you are willing to work really hard for a good grade, you probably won't get much above 80. However, if you attend all lectures then there's no reason not to pass the course and do alright. Midterm was tough, final was easier.

This class was very dull and hard to follow at 8:30am. Really likes to hear himself talk. You cannot reference the textbook because he wrote it. It's about as imformative as his lectures. Very disappoiting.

If you want a good grade in this class you need to read the readings he assings, atleast twice. Also go to class. He explains everything very well. Dont think that your seminars are a joke, you need to go to them. There worth 15% of your overall mark and you get the 15% percent just by showing up. Make sure you get the text.

Good prof but he changed his seminars and forces you to read another boring text and you have to do presentations on it in your seminars. Midterm is pretty easy and similar to the one on the registry. He was a pretty good prof but the material was dull. He worte the main text so you have to read it but its an easy read. A lot of memorization though

Even though this class was at 8:30AM. I totally loved it. Prof K. is GREAT!! + his sweaters are cute. Midterm was the same as the one on the test registry and there was one essay. Don't read The West. There was only one question on the final about it, and you could do it without reading. There is a mandatory seminar. TAKE SOC 100 with this man!!!

Prof Knutilla is funny and is cute in his knit sweaters! He wrote the text used in the class and if you read it you could probably pass the mid-term. His mid-term was the exact one from the U of R test registy, and he gives the questions for the final in advance. All notes are on WebCT There is one essay

If you want to get a good mark on his exams, make sure that you write down everything that you learned in class or from reading the text book. Short answers mean page long answers. Be very specific and detailed or your mark will be low.

Excellent Professor! His teaching style was amazing, he is humourus and knowledgeable. Excellent grader, so long as you are truely interested in the subject. Plus an added bonus if you are a country person, because of his background. Be prepared for talk about his hometown. Overall I enjoyed his classes and recommend to everyone to take his class.

I thought he was very clear, very concise and very knowledgable on the subject. He was animated and a joy to have as a teacher. Like anything in life, the more you put into it, the more you get out if it ... so don*t be a whiner - just go to class and do your best and he will recognize that and you will come out with a good mark.
