Comment:
Dr Burfoot has been in the academic game for a very long time -- she is respected and a genuine human being. She was incredibly accommodating during the COVID-19 outbreak, which speaks to her moral force of character. An admirable feminist. Now, it must be said, her course was rather dense and disorganized. It would be better with tutorials.

Comment:
Prof Burfoots lectures, while she was very knowledgeable, were incredibly boring and dense. While some of the assignments seemed easy and fun, like making a brochure, they were marked difficulty and did not reflect material learned in lecture. Course content was interesting but her lectures did not do it justice unfortunately.

The lectures are a bit boring, but interesting material! I wouldn't bother doing the readings as lecture covers all of it. If you put work into assignments its not hard to get a good grade. She was also very fair with the exam - basically impossible to fail it.

Comment:
Honestly... her class is the worst I've taken in the entirety of my undergraduate degree (I am now a fourth year student). She is an incredibly boring lecturer, is not sensitive to her students' needs, and has the most vague assignment instructions I've ever seen. Avoid at all costs.

Good lecturer, can be a bit monotone but overall an effective professor. Always available outside of class for discussion.

Great proff for upper year.... not as much for a first year course. Makes the class very enjoyable for her students... she knows what students like and her evaluation schema is awesome

In comparison to Prof. Beamish she was great. It was nice to learn something although the material could be kind of boring as opposed to learning nothing with tons of gimicky and pointless powerpoint slides and songs *cough* Prof. Beamish *cough*.

Can be interesting and encouraging, until she's not. From warm and fuzzy to destructive ice queen, the switch is sudden and inexplicable. Beware.

I probably would have liked her better if I'd been able to stay awake in her classes. I found it hard how all over the place the readings were, and although she tried to be helpful she never really seemed clear on what people were asking. Midterm was 20 MC questions - ridiculous! But she's a nice person, and not a terrible prof...just not amazing.

Prof. Burfoot was very interesting, brilliant and organized. Always willing to discuss topics with students outside of class time. Her class was laid out very welll, with mixed media presentation and a good mix of lecture and class discussion. She is very passionate about her subject and obviously knows it well. She is a fantastic teacher.

I found her class really interesting, and she is a great speaker and prof. She tried to get the class involved in the lecture even though there's over 200 students in the class. She is really clear and it is noticable how passionate she is about this course.

Comment:
For a course about Pop Culture, Burfoot seems a little out of touch with contemporary entertainment. Her knowledge of the theoretical perspectives is great - her application to today is pretty questionable.

Most boring prof I had this year!!! She killed a subject that could have been interesting. Her obvious feminist biased just turned me and everyone I know off of the class. She gives boring lectures and comes off like a totally miserable person.

I think Professor Burfoot is great. I enjoyed how her topics in sociology were not all theorist and theory, theorist and theory, blah, blah, blah. I enjoyed discussion on random topics involving our society. She is a good lecturer, and very nice to speak to in person.

excellent prof. Clear, concise, pretty and intelligent. Prof. Burfoot tolerates students to challenge anything and always has the right answers. Perhaps brilliance has a cost. Some of her lectures can be monotone but she overcomes this by allowing helpful discussion - great equalizer.

I really found her lectures interesting, and the movies were a nice interlude. The exam and midterm weren't so bad and the workload isn't too high. She sparked my interest in sociology.
