Make sure to attend class and take notes! The answers to a lot of the questions on the tests come from the notes you take in class. He appreciates participation in class, and tries to ask students lots of questions. He gives lots of articles to read, and he does do pop quizzes, so make sure you read them!

Dr. Johnson is one of the most engaging instructors I have ever had. He is very well respected by both his peers some of which I have had the honor of having as my current instructors and students alike. Even though you might hear that his class is challenging, it is also rewarding at the same time as you will walk away with extensive knowledge.

I learned more in this class than I feel like I have in the rest of my college career. He had a field trip organized for us and interesting guest lecturers. Class felt long, 2.5 hours of him lecturing on topics but he asks for participation. Best advice I can give is to read the work before class and participate, he notices and appreciates it.

Professor Johnson was a really nice teacher. There wasn't as much homework besides doing the readings, which were the bases for pop quizzes. One group project and a take-home midterm was not difficult, as long as you paid attention in class.

Johnson was probably the most difficult I've had but he is also the most interesting i've ever had at UH Manoa. The foundation of the class is based on the books he assigns, then he will lecture ( FYI: NOTE TAKING and listening to him is CRUCIAL). He will have pop quizzes based on the readings. He will also have 3 take home exams.

Professor Johnson was one of the best professor's I've had, however the class was really tough. The class is basically 3 exams, two take homes (6-8 page essay) and one final in class. Three books were read, and quizzes every so often. I recommend to take, but take it seriously! Class was again was challenging, but I personally learned a TON!

Exhibited a great understanding of the content. He is extra AF tho. Uses big and unnecessary words. Make sure you read thoroughly, maybe even a couple of times because the quiz questions are hard. Be prepared to write notes because he does not use a powerpoint. Tests were easy because they were either take home or he hinted at what would be on it

Terrible class format and is surprisingly disrespectful when you approach him. Don't recommend his class at all. One of the worst professors I have ever had.

One of my favorite professors at UH. Probably the most articulate teacher I've ever had. Really pushes his students to think analytically about sometimes controversial topics. Will definitely make you think about certain issues and ideas differently. Being graded based on only 3 exams and attendance is my only complaint.

One of my favorite professors I've ever had. Very engaging lecturer and makes the material very clear and easy to understand. Instead of just dumping a bunch of information on us, he breaks it down into main ideas that are easy to grasp. I enjoyed his teaching style a lot, no textbook, just 3 novels to real which were all pretty interesting.

Comment:
Not very intellectually stimulating, he seems like he comes from a small and white sheltered town the way he expressed many of his political views. His final exam (scantron test)speaks clearly about his inability to properly assess students. More sociology than political science oriented...

He is one of my favorite professors. He knows what he's talking about. The class maybe hard at first, but it gets really interesting. I wish he'd teach other non-criminology courses.
