Comment:
Nice. Very easy to get sidetracked and off topic, so he falls very behind on his syllabus. He is not a difficult grader, although I felt he looked more at paper construction (he's not an english teacher) than content. Okay.

Comment:
Every bad comment is true. If you are at all interested in Anthro DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS. We did not learn a single thing. However, if you want an easy A, this is the class for you. He gives ridiculous amounts of reading, but you dont have to do any of it because he never brings it up in lecture. Instead he rambles on and always contradicts himself.

Comment:
messy... too much talk about himself, sticking on the same point for ages, not aware of time spent on his personal stories rather than the subject itself. However, it's an easy class.. and safe.

Comment:
One of the worst profs I've experienced. Lectures are disorganized and attempts at class discussion always end in silence. After a semester, I still have no idea what, if anything, we were supposed to be learning. Have had to return a paper for regrading when it was obvious he hadn't actually read it. Take at your own risk!

He is a great teacher and if you need help you can count on him. You don't have to do every single reading. His class is very interesting.

Comment:
Dickie is extremely well-intentioned, but has absolutely no idea how to present material or organize a syllabus. Lectures are rambling and irrelevant. Grading is based almost entirely on group projects. The massive amounts of readings he assigns may or may not be online and most likely will not be mentioned in class.

Comment:
I'll be honest... I don't think he's a great teacher. I wouldn't take another class with him. He is young-ish and cool, a great guy but the class was easy, fun and obvious, not very challenging at all.

I've had two classes with him --- he's a really nice person, willing to help you outside of class, and tells great stories. You can tell he loves what he does.

Dickie's still working out the kinks of being a professor, but his readings are great, his lectures interesting, and he is very helpful and enthusiastic about the subject. Good prof. As a senior I would recommend.
