Very unhelpful to online students. I struggled badly and even went to office hours with basically no assistance. She was outright rude. Quizzes were very hard and assignments took ungodly long.

This class is run weekly online. You are to complete an assignment, discussion, and a quiz each week. The question can be difficult but manageable. Professor Hammes is also really willing to help if you take the time to meet with her. Grades very fairly as this is a level 100 course and she knows that we are not all POLs majors.

This was an online class so I could expect a lot of reading from the text but this class took it to a different level. The readings did not help with the home work other than giving poor definitions of the underlying topics it also forced you to find answers outside the book. I believe the assignments are well out of reach for level 100 course.

I had the opportunity to take POL 440 with Michelle while studying abroad in Alnwick. She is an awesome professor! Extremely nice and extremely helpful! We met once a week so our lectures were about 3 hours 45 minutes which was long. We had a 10 point quiz and a 2 1/2-3 page paper due every week. Wasn't extremely hard. Overall, I enjoyed her class.

Comment:
Nice lady, unorganized professor. She assigns a 3 page paper every week, but won't grade it for almost two months. Essentially, you won't know your grade for the rest of the semester. I once emailed her asking for clarification and never received any email. She is very caring, but I would take another professor if possible.

Comment:
Not sure how she has such a high score. Don't learn anything. If you dont read the textbook you will fail the exams. Rambles on so note taking is impossible. no study guides or anything. Emailed her once for clarification on an exam - told me to read specific chapters - half the information on the exam wasn't in those specific chapters. terrible.

Buy the previous edition book. Her notes are sometimes tedius. Tons of informtion. Tests are a combination of multiple guess, short answer definition, and take home 2-page essay. Personally, the book had more inforamtion than her notes, but that's her style. Study the information and you'll do fine. Fun class.

Comment:
Not an incredibly stimulating class. She reads excerpts of textbooks or articles to the class, then asks, "what do you think?", whereupon you may volunteer your opinion, or wait until someone else does. Repeat. For a semester. As long as you proofread your papers well and have an elementary knowledge of feminism you should be fine.
