Learned nothing in lectures but attendance is mandatory. Tests are only on the textbook so you have to teach yourself. Hard marker but gives no feedback. Makes politically incorrect jokes and comments regularly. Waste of time and brought my GPA down!

Comment:
Teaches outdated material, refuses to use online resources, and does not give clear feedback on anything. His lectures are repetitive and pointless, and there is no reason to come to class other than mandatory participation. Interrupts students, and frequently makes cringy "trying to be cool" comment. Be prepared to teach yourself from the book.

Comment:
Do not crinkle your wrappers in his class. Uses the terms,"okay gang?" And" Is that really the time?" Very funny humour gets better the more he gets to know his students. Excellent teacher. Never boring, and wins 1st prize for most markers ever used in a semester. Remind him, his glasses are on his head. He will appreciate it!

Comment:
Lawrence is very easy going, ask him a question and he'll clarifyfor you. He has some humor, not a dull class. Some of his papers can be long but they are fairly easy to write. He has like 3-4 tests during the semester which are fairly easy. Lawrence tells you which chapters to study so no need to study the whole text.

He's a good teacher but SOME of the tests are hard! Sometimes there are question on the test that he didn't go over. He has a lot of trick questions too. He has a lot of good stories and his classes are interesting.

I had him for one class last semester and two this semester. After reading and hearing about him being so tough, I was scared! I haven't been to school in 30 years! When I got my first essay back, it was a B-!! I NEVER had grades like that. I love his sense of humor and a wealth of information. He's become my fave professor!

If you're taking a hybrid course attendance is MANDATORY and you must pay attention. Miss a single class, leave early, come late, or don't post in class cafe you will fail the course or receive a very low mark on participation, huge part of overall grade. He's a fair marker, had no final or midterm but strict, not very understanding or negotiable.

Comment:
knows his material, tries to make the boring material somewhat fun, BUT is a very tough/unfair marker, a bit boring and does not negotiate with students. I (and other students) had to study more for his class than any others and still received a low mark. If you have a choice, do NOT pick him!

Comment:
This class is interesting if you are a history buff! LOL Otherwise, this prof does his best to keep it lively and as interesting as possible. Perhaps reading the material before the class would have helped but, then when would we have done that? Seriously, clear and direct. *Take notes, it will be on the test!* Good discussion, keep him talking!

Upbeat despite the somewhat dry material. Comprehensive, clear and a fair marker. Approachable. Plus he's a real cutie.

I think that Lawrence gets a bad rap!!!! I think that if you really study hard you will do well and make sure that you hand that paper in on time and do a good job on in including your research. Start early!!! I think he is fair. Dont run on when writing the essay questions on tests or he will give you a low grade. Show up on time! Show up! Got it
