Don't take this class unless you like listening to lecture upon lecture. He was harsh and didn't make class interesting or fun. He was very monotone and didn't engage the class.

I took class from Dennis my first quarter at BC, and I 100% regret it. Class consist of him talking at you for 90 minutes, about things that will not be on your test (which you have one every week) He is a genuine guy, but just doesn't know how to teach.

Heres the deal, Mr. Wanamaker was a nice guy, but its a good thing I found Psycology interesting on my own. There was zero outside communication and limited in class communication. His test questions were worded confusingly and are super specific. Hell turn one-time side comments into test questions. I wouldnt take a class from him again.

Comment:
After completing a hybrid class from him, I would reconsider a choice to take a hybrid/online. A complete lack of resources on canvas means attendance is imperative and using the book is useful. Quizzes are outdated and not completely related to the material. Not a great course in terms of learning or ease of a passing grade, but doable.

I took his hybrid class for Fridays only. He was always nice. Class starts at 9:30 and thats when he will start lecturing. attendance matters because you have a quiz every class. He tells you everything you need to know for quizzes. Just do the key terms he gives you and any other small assignments and the class is a breeze.

He was a niceish person, but he refused to do anything online. I had him for a hybrid class and he wouldn't even put our test scores and grades on canvas, he would make US keep track of our grade. He was confusing and the most boring person to listen to in the world. Would not recommend ever.

Comment:
He seems nice, but I took a hybrid class and he didn't really use Canvas or the online materials, which made it hard to understand when things were due because he wasn't great at explaining in class. I ended up getting a bad grade because I missed a lot of assignments that I was unclear on the due dates for. Also, his lectures are super boring.

Overall, he's a sweet person. I actually liked his class, though he can be unclear when it comes to tests. They were confusing since the material he told us to study was a bit different from the material that was on the tests. Just pay attention in class, learn the vocab and DO the reading if he assigns any, you should be fine.

Comment:
I'm not sure how I got an A in this class. The tests are a matching style and often there would be vocab/questions on them that I had never heard of. For this reason, I do not think the tests are easy. You need to know a lot of vocab. Plenty of awkward moments in class, and that made it sort of enjoyable.

Everything is vocab based, and none of that is on the final. Avoid if possible.

Comment:
Dr. Wanamaker is a wonderfully, kind man and I highly enjoyed the one on one discussions we had. However, his tests are every Friday , worth 50% of your grade and can be rather difficult as definitions are in his words. Please read the syllabus as it clearly explains missing one of the tests results in your final exam's grade being applied to it

Very confusing because his class is literally based all on vocabulary, and all his quizzes were matching vocab, but then when it got to the final there was barley anything we had talked about in class on there! Avoid If you want a good final grade.

Dennis was a good professor, it wasn't an easy class, well obviously your in college. If you do your work when it's assigned and don't procrastinate you'll be fine. Honestly I didn't read any of the book and I passed with a B, only because I took really detailed notes in class. Don't skip class on quizzes and labs because you can't make those up.

Good guy, putrid teacher. He's nice and funny and will try his best to help if you ask but don't expect anything. He talks very slowly and boringly, but still can't communicate his expectations or assignment criteria. Seems like he doesn't want to be there. He refuses to even give you your grade. Mandatory attendance makes it absolutely unbearable

I'm not sure why he has such terrible reviews. Yes, he's older but I really enjoyed his class. Expect weekly homework assignments, not hard but time consuming. There is one group project due at the end of the quarter, pick partners wisely! His lectures can be long but he's very knowledgable. Very nice professor too.

Dennis doesn't talk much, but he is a good professor. He assigns homework every week, but it is super easy, I don't event think he reads what you write. His quizzes are based on vocab and HIS definitions NOT the books, so listen to him in class and take notes. If you study for quizzes and take notes and do homework, you will pass no problem.

He seems nice & if you're just filling credits go for it, but I wouldn't take this class again. It's all group work while he sits back or sometimes even bails. Instructions aren't clear (he doesn't write them out properly) & he doesn't communicate very well, especially online. Seems like he doesn't really want to be there which is demotivating.

Comment:
Dennis was an adequate professor. His hybrid Psych 101 class was very structured - quizzes, lectures, and discussion were all on the same day each week, which is a good thing. His lectures tend to feel like droning noises after a while, but that's okay, because as long as you read his lecture notes you should pass the quizzes.

Comment:
The quizzes are nonsense. The very first quiz he handed us was a matching quiz, and one of the questions was literally "911" and the matching terms were whether it was a "dependent variable" or an independent variable." I don't even know how that is psychology. I am an A+ student, and he gave me a C+ because of these ridiculous questions.
