Comment:
Fairly unorganized. Takes a while to grade things, but the work if easy. A few times throughout the semester he was late to release the weekly modules, which was a bit annoying. Group project for an entirely online class is also a little hard to ogranize, but it was not horrible. Weekly discussion and quiz (easy), and a few larger projects.

Condescending. Doesn't answer emails, if he does it's up to a week later. Grades SO LATE. Most unorganized prof I've ever encountered. Boring and unprofessional. Every SINGLE week students had to remind him to post a quiz, or a reading or an entire module. Don't know why he became a professor, he clearly does NOT care about his students. HARD PASS.

This professor did not release his syllabus until 5 days after class started. He also did grade any assignments during the first month of class. Laziest person I have ever seen! Should be fired.

WORST PROFESSOR AT THIS COLLEGE! Wait another semester for a different professor. Do not let your academic advisors con you into taking his class.

Comment:
online course, didn't lecture, which is odd. I think he expects us to learn through discussions and articles that he posts, which personally I have not learned a thing. He is very unorganized, condescending, and does not give feedback right away. Very very slow on grading assignments. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR !

PUT ALL DUE DATES IN A PLANNER AS SOON AS YOU GET THE SYLLABUS. Doesn't require a textbook. Class is broken down into weekly modules but the due dates are inconsistent. Read the texts before taking the quizzes. Quizzes are short but questions challenging. Some answers are in ZOOM videos. Final paper was turned in to a group project last minute.

This professor is so unorganized. The quizzes are suppose to unlock on sundays for 24 hours but he doesn't post them and will post them randomly at a later time, making you miss the quizzes. He doesn't require a textbook and his video lectures are painful to watch. He makes you read articles for the text all written by him.

Comment:
The class itself isn't too bad; a couple assignments are a lot of work but it's mainly group work or reading quizzes. The problem is Branch's organization. He never answers student questions on time or posts quizzes when he's supposed to, which makes an online course very confusing. Also, he goes way off topic during lectures.

Super unorganized. He is not clear to what he expects in the group projects. The quizzes are only 5 points. His extra credit opportunities are few but definitely take advantage.

DO NOT TAKE ANY CLASS WITH THIS PROFESSOR! He is unorganized to the point where you will lose points because of his own ineptitude. The lectures are useless, the assignments are unclear, and the window of time to complete assignments are slim and inconvenient to the class. Save yourself the time and money and choose a different professor.

Comment:
This class was actually ridiculous. SO unorganized. Literally cancelled a midterm! And the quizzes can be tricky because they say they're based on readings, then they're actually based on an entire chapter! The only thing that saves this class is the FAQ because you can find out which assignments you don't need to do

Comment:
Very unclear in what he wants from students. His schedule and syllabus he uploads are contradicting. He is unorganized, confusing and like many said, condescending. Pretty positive he hardly updates class materials/schedule/etc. assigns assignments/quizzes/midterm but will cancel them quietly even though students have completed them.

Very unorganized. Opened quizzes and closed them before anyone in the class could take them. Told us to check the syllabus for questions we had but they were never in the syllabus in the first place. included assignments that were not in the syllabus. Didn't explain what he wants on assignments then doesn't answer emails in time to turn it in.

Comment:
Rude. Condescending. Technologically inept. Disorganized. Judgmental. Uses out of date CNN sources. First five minutes into the online class he said "I dont hear around of applause for not requiring you buy a text. You must all be rich students on mommy and daddy's money" VERY politically biased. Loaded and racist questions. Should not be teaching

Comment:
This professor is knowledgable in his field, but that's the only thing he has going for him. Never have I had such a disrespectful, arrogant, and self-righteous professor. He blamed students for the many technical problems with Blackboard and Blackboard Collaborate instead of admitting his mistakes. In his mind, he can never be wrong.

This was the most unorganized class I have ever taken. There were many people who were confused by the syllabus and he never responds to emails. He is condescending if you have a different idea than his own and can be very offensive. Tests are very difficult and the final is 40 questions but only worth ten points. The readings were 40+ yrs old.

Professor Branch knows the subject very well. Taking his class taught me to value all cultures making a positive impact on my own culture. It was an easy class. You only have to read one or two articles per class, take an online 5 questions quiz and make a presentation.

Very knowledgeable professor; if you cannot take jokes and/or direct remarks then you will have a problem. He is not afraid to say what he thinks of you. This class really is very helpful for future teachers!! Pretty easy, just make sure you DON'T miss class too much (takes points away). Great class overall!
