Comment:
I thoroughly enjoyed going to his lectures, as they were all discussion-based. Whenever someone said ANYTHING, he made them feel so smart even if it was a simple comment. He'd push you to dig deeper and really analyze if you happened to be a little off. My writing got so much better after this class. You could tell he really cared about the topics.

Comment:
honestly i dont understand the other ratings on Hyman, as his course was the worst ive ever taken at Mac. lectures were horrible & discussion based (impossible in a lecture hall of 200+ students), he was unbearably racist & ignorant regarding indig. history & authors, & the grading on assignments was confusing. got a good grade but wasted my $.

Comment:
Dr. Hyman was by far the most incredible professor I have ever had. His lectures were interesting and pertinent, and it seemed as though everything he said made perfect sense. He was so good, in fact, that I never wanted to miss a lecture. If you ever have the chance to take a class taught by him, DO IT.

Comment:
really fun guy. he doesnt lecture, but rather discusses. if youre not a talkative person, his lectures arent for you. only cons are that he will only talk to you about content in the class - dont expect him to mention assignments or any course-related info.

I'm terrible at reading something I don't like, but I loved all the reading material! Listening to him then lecture about it was a privilege because he is a GENIUS lecturer: straightforward, informative, a whiz at explaining something complex. Down to earth and encouraging. Exam was perfect - not too easy, not too hard. You'll love it!

Comment:
Dr. Hyman was a fantastic lecturer who spoke with the class, not at the class. He made the texts studied relevant by relating them to current and historical events and created a space were students were able to share their opinions . His assignments were fair and he was flexible with deadlines when asked. One of my favorite first year profs!

Amazing lecture style. My tutorials we're super relaxed and interesting. I would take his course even if I wasn't interested in the content I enjoyed his teacher so much. Really personal and just super interesting. Just be prepared for the many novels you read throughout the course.

For starters, Dr. Hyman is adorable. He lectures like no other; he doesn't even 'lecture,' rather, he DISCUSSES. The class was made up of conversation and discussion. Many students participated, and he makes the learning environment very open and comfortable.

I definitely enjoyed this class. Put the work in, actually read the books (or at least read a few and try to understand what's going on in the others via sparknotes, that's what i did), and unless you're horrible at writing essays i think you should do well. The tutorials are really helpful. Also, Dr. Hyman is absolutely adorable

A wonderful professor and an extraordinary person. Hyman is a gifted lecturer and cares very much about his students. Any class taken with him is sure to be compelling and very worthwhile. Having taken three classes with him, I can honestly say that they were the undisputed highlights of my undergraduate career.

Hyman really knows his stuff & I appreciated his very well thought out lectures (his books were always filled w/ very neatly placed & colour coded post-its). But, what Dr. Hyman knows is What He Knows and he (along w/ the class) will know nothing else! For eg, "Klee Wyck" lectures are almost identical no matter what course code. (But he IS lovely!)
