Comment:
Lectures were boring, as were the 3 books assigned to read. 300 pages about inventing the wheel were just too many, as were the other books page counts. Theres only 2 exams and a 10-page paper. Hard to tell whats important and whats not during his lectures, making studying difficult. The course is not worth the effort required to do well in it.

Comment:
It was scary that only the midterm and the final would result in your final grade, but he usually curves the exams grades AND offers 3 extra credit options that can raise your grade so much. The terms he releases on sakai before the exams are a very large portion of what will be tested. Awesome guy who loves what he does and pretty funny too.

Roe is one of my favorite professors at UD, you will learn a lot from his class if you pay attention. Do the extra credit and study hard for the two exams and you will be fine.

This class was interesting but extremely boring at times. A lot of the material he covers isn't even on the exam! I came to class all the time and always took notes for the first exam and barely got a passing grade. 2 exams 50% each with extra credit. I got A's in all my other classes and barely passed this class.

Do not make eye contact. Do not start a conversation. At all cost avoid stepping foot into his classroom. Teacher ruined my life. The city of newark would benefit if he were't around to teach anymore

Definitely avoid at all cost. Class is so boring and he just rambles on and on. Lots of assignments and he's all over the place. Overall the worst class I've taken so far.

Only 2 exams which are pretty hard given the material... He rambles in class and there are several required readings... Hard to tell what is pertinent and what isn't. Seems like a nice guy, but pass on this class unless you really need it.

Roe is a great guy. Always 100% enthusiast about the subject. This class was nice because there was only 2 exams w study guide and extra credit optional. Study the guide day before and do well. 2 books that aren't so bad, i just read summaries.

Try not to take this class. It can be interesting at times, but it is impossible. 2 hard exams and a 10-12 page research paper. Avoid this class. At all costs.

Nice enough guy, knows what he's talking about but he's a space case. It's almost impossible to comprehend the things he says. 10 page paper and 2 tests. Do the extra credit and the assigned reading, it'll make the class easier.

I would not recommend taking Roe at all. Only grades are 50% midterm and 50% final. He is disorganized and rambles in class. We had a textbook and 4 ethnographies to read. If you end up in this class do all the extra credit because it will save your grade. He does curve which is good though. But not an easy breadth requirement.

Classes are interesting, tests are harder than needed. Says he doesnt ask trivia but questions are in trivia form so its confussing. Offers extra credit that can help. Random questions from the readings that y wouldnt expect which makes studying pretty hard.

If you are taking Roe for a breadth requirement, it is NOT an easy A. You MUST go to class and there are only 2 assignments he bases your grade off of so if you mess up it screws up your whole average.

Most interesting class I've taken at UDel, also the most impossible. His tests are confusing in that he uses terminology only he understands. You will be fascinated and think you're learning a lot in class only to be dumboundead on the exams even if you write down everything and study. Write a good research paper; only chance to boost your grade.

His classes are interesting, however, the exams are impossible. He is very helpful when it comes to writing the essay though. I went to his office and he literally told me everything I needed to know to write my paper. Good guy, ridiculously hard teacher

Quirky guy who wears cowboy boots and turquoise belt buckles. Definitely knows his stuff! Can't stress enough how important lecture notes are tho.. the entirety of the exams is from class. GO TO CLASS or else you'll miss so much. Probably could get by without books. He talks about them in class anyway.

Roe is awesome, but you shouldn't take his class. The lectures were interesting, but had a hard time staying awake. You will never know when his notes are something you should know. only grades: 2 tough exams that you don't review and a huge vague research essay that the class won't prepare you for. Won't read email, can't use internet research

He is a very nice guy. I probably would have done better in the class if I were more engaged in the material. His lectures are disorganized as he tends to ramble; I think this may be b/c he knows so much stuff and loves what he studies/teaches.

This class was definitely interesting. However, that is probably the only good part. The tests were hard and you only have two exams, a research paper and two extra credit opportunities. Definitely read the books and attendance is MANDATORY if you want to do well. He's pretty disorganized always late to class! I would NOT recommend him AT ALL.
