Comment:
I enjoyed Peoples but admit I was in the minority. The guy is REALLY smart and the readings are super interesting, but his lectures are a bit rambly. If you go in with the right attitude, do the reading, take notes during lectures, and sort of sit back and try to absorb what he has to say he's actually quite funny and has a lot of wisdom to impart

Comment:
Dr. Peoples has his classes structured so that they are very lecture heavy. He is rather quiet when he talks, but he will repeat whenever you ask. Does tend to get off topic, but never enough to ruin the class. His exams are almost always all writing, so prepare for that.

Save yourself the trouble. Not only is he weak with teaching class, but he is extremely rude, too, if you say something he does not agree with.

He is a nice guy and means well but his lectures are pretty boring and long! He also speaks in a really low voice making it even harder to pay atention to. Never knew what he wanted in an essay or exam. Just all around awful as teacher!

Comment:
Disorganized class topics, hard to understand or follow, does not lecture well. I liked the topic before coming in but he makes it hard to keep the interest up. Very disappointing. Don't take unless you already love him for whatever reason. Also, his grading system is a cipher with no key.

Comment:
Completely unorganized. His lack of knowledge in the class material was present throughout the semester. Disappointing. As a graduating senior, this was the worst class I had at OWU. The students grades suffered because he could not run the class (canceled field trips, which were supposed to be extra credit). It is a shame, he seems like a nice guy

Peoples is one of my favorite professors. The classes are interesting and often fun. He gives me the feeling that he really enjoys teaching and communicating with students. So he hasn't entered the computer age quite yet, who cares? His classes are some of the most interesting around. - Gavin

Comment:
Dull lectures, but extremely nice guy. He'll go out of his way to help. 292 was a fairly easy class- tests are straight from the lectures, and there was only one writing assignment (a 10 page research paper due at the end of the semester).

Comment:
Very nice, knowledgable. His lectures are fine but classes can be boring especially if no one talks. Speak up in class, it's easy and he'll like it. Not too much reading, you can get away with only parts, and the papers aren't too terrible. His grading is about medium, so know how to form a sentence, but he isn't too picky.

Peoples is a genuinely nice guy. His classes can be a little disorganized, but at least when he realizes that we're not getting anywhere in the lecture he lets class out early. He tries really hard to make class interesting in addition to lecture with guests, films, and food.
