Comment:
She will call on you often and randomly. she will just pick a random name out of her head. You will spend a lot of money on ink and paper you have to print out readings for every class. However I have never learned so much from a class before and been able to apply it as well. You will be stressed but I think the take away is worth it

Comment:
Professor Golinkoff is caring but I hate how she calls on people during class. The question is so random and sometimes people dont know what to say. She will call on you every class. Tests and quizzes are so tedious ! Attendance is mandatory. She takes 1 point off for every absence.

Comment:
Professor G. is very disorganized, forgetful, and can sometimes be rude. Participation and attendance are mandatory, tests are very difficult and involve nitpicky questions, and there is a TON of reading for homework. Plus pop quizzes every week, so don't skip the readings. Avoid if you have to, but we did get a curve and she knows her research.

Comment:
I hated this class and this professor so much. This class was absolute torture to go to. Gives pop quizzes almost every class. She absolutely CANNOT stay on topic for more than 2 minutes at a time. She calls you out for literally nothing in front of the entire class and embarrasses you for doing nothing wrong. DO NOT CHOOSE TO HAVE THIS PROFESSOR.

Comment:
WAY too many ignorant, insensitive comments for someone that is so educated. Forced participation, pop quizzes, SO many printed readings for EVERY CLASS, impossible tests. An hour and 15 minutes of THAT. Do what you can to get out of it.

Comment:
Honestly worst professor I've ever had. She sucks. Do everything you can to avoid taking her. She is so unorganized, confusing, and thinks she's hilarious but she's really just annoying. Her tests are impossible no matter how hard you study. Everyone does bad on them yet she doesn't change them because she doesn't think it's her problem.

Comment:
Confusing, scatterbrained, hard to follow. Picks favorites in class, if you're one of them you will be fine. Lots of textbook readings and things to print out. Wouldn't recommend taking her, but if you have to, just do the readings, take notes, and study really hard for the tests because they are tricky. The field placement is nice though.

Comment:
Prof. Golinkoff was one of the most "interesting" professors Ive ever had. Entirely disorganized and scatterbrained but is very knowledgable of her stuff. The most I got out of the class was an ok field placement(that was also entirely unorganized). overall, intelligent woman but horrible prof.

I will say one good thing about her, she really does know what she is talking about. Other than that she is all over the place with her thoughts, she assigns homework every night and it is a lot of readings. Also stock up on ink and printer paper because you print out massive amounts of readings!

She's really into human development and all the pysch topics but she's a little crazy. Work hard, do the readings, participate in class and you should be fine as long as you enjoy the topic.

Comment:
Dr. Golinkoff is the most obnoxious, pretentious, stuck up human being I have ever met. She's a terrible teacher and person, her tests are completely unfair (like 20 essays on one test)..she's an incredibly tough grader..and the only people who do well in the class are the 2 people she favors...all in all she, her class, and her lab SUCK! AVOID IT!

Honestly, this class was not bad at all...as long as you go to class, make good cheat sheets and read the text book you will do well on her tests and she genuinely cares about her students, so far its been my favorite education class

Comment:
Are you guys kidding? She is the absolute worst teacher in the education department. The many readings she assigns have nothing to do with the test or her discussions. She is so unclear and so unhelpful. Asking her a question is like talking to a wall. Save yourself from boredom and pointless work and do not take her. She is a waste of time.
