Comment:
Professor Keefer is obviously very passionate about what he does, but doesn't seem to understand that he's teaching students. He runs through material quickly, and tests us on information that isn't necessarily on the study guide (study guides are occasionally typo-ridden and misleading). Take an abundance of notes! He lets you use them for tests.

he doesn't teach to the book. he forces people to know everything about the certain topic. he is a great teacher and does not pick on people of color. he actually embraced peoples nationalities and color and rallied behind them when talking about injustice. great teacher and I strongly recommend him.

Comment:
Gets extremely side tracked from lectures, have to learn everything yourself, forces his political views, disrespectful towards students, does not enter grades correctly, absolutely never checks emails, definitely picks favorites and ignores everyone else, loves to pick on anyone of colour. Find a different professor. He is the worst one I've had.

He is an easy prof but is a grumpy old man I would never take a class with again. He does let you use notes on the test, so as I said its an easy class- I had him for govt

Only a few assignments through the entire semester. He lets you make up any missed tests and was super nice. Not a great class if you love government but if you want an easy A I highly recommend this prof.

He just randomly does whatever he wants. Spends the whole class rambling. But, he's easy & lets every1 use their notes on the tests. However, the tests didn't always follow the study guides well. Also randomly gave us a pop quiz 1 day but there was nothing about quizzes in the syllabus.And told us we could use our notes on a test then didn't let us

He is an awful professor. He favors athletes and side tracks for 20 min at a time. He puts up power points and gives reviews that don't match the test…. GOOD LUCK

This professor has probably been one of my favorites of all time!! He does get side tracked but it usually has something to do with the class. Very funny as well (you have to get his sarcasm/humor)

Comment:
HORRIBLE TEACHER! I went in to how the American Govt worked and all I heard was how the right wing, gun toting, conservatives are ruining this country. If the class would have been about how the system actually worked I wouldn't be so mad. This teacher was a waste of my time and I will tell everyone who has to take this class not to take Mr Keefer

I really liked having hims as a professor. He did get side tracked when teaching lectures, however his test reviews went hand in hand with the test and he allows you to use notes/powerpoints on the tests and exams, even if they are on a computer.

He was kind of tough on the students. He has a bad attitude towards the students when they don't respond to him. He makes us feel like we are dumb.

Keefer sucks at teaching. I had a great gov't teacher in HS and he wasn't even half as good. He picked favorites and everyone else was just a pile of crap to him. He would start talking about one thing, then go off in another direction about something not related. He has open note tests because he never gets through a lecture. Find a dif. teacher.

Although he does tend to get off topic, he makes one of the most boring classes (government) interesting! He provides test reviews and actually wants students to do well. By far one of the best professors I have had at CC.

Worst teacher hands down. The mindless discussions where endless. I often felt like it waa a class on high school sports rather than government. He picked on people because of where they went to high school, and got off track a lot.

Probably one of the easiest teachers I've had since middle school. The only problem is that I have to sit through the mindless discussions that take place during his 3 hour class. He gets way off topic and presents his opinions as if they are facts. Don't even try arguing with him, it's not worth it. But he is a good guy and his class is very easy.

MOST BORING PROFESSOR EVER! I'd rather watch paint dry than to ever sit through another one of his classes again. His stories are pointless and so is the material he is teaching. He spends more time just rambling than teaching

Great personality and fair. Lectures were never boring as long as the course held your interest. Easy Grade as long as you study.
