HE WAS A AWESOME TEACHER!!!! very funny, as long as you do the work you're all good, hes very chill and teaches you what you need to know. He talks a lot but its a way of connection between the students and there isn't a class where i haven't laughed.

Tells a lot of stories that do not pertain to class. Horrible grader but tests are easy as long as you go to class. The class itself is interesting.

Dr. Norris was a great teacher and always kept the class interesting. He did lecture a lot, but if you write notes on his power points all his quizzes and test are easy. This class had an online portion as well, we had a chapter quiz at the end of each week. Posted our grades frequently online and responded to emails quickly. highly recommend.

Comment:
Dr. Norris is a cool guy. The only draw back would be the lecture style. If you're not used to lecture, which a lot of 131 students are not, it can be a challenge to stay focused which is a shame because he has so much good information to give to students. If he just mixed it up a little bit with more active learning, would be a home run!

Be thankful for this teacher because you won't get many like him. He was nice, his lectures were interesting and actually helpful, and he was easy. His weekly periodic assessments were annoying but as long as you understand what you are reading and write at least 3 pages, you will most likely pass with A's on all of them.

Professor Norris was a great professor. He was kind and passionate about sociology. He lectures the entire session but he doesn't just read off of the powerpoint, he adds his own information to his lessons. Read the chapters and do the periodic assessments and you'll be fine. And discuss things with him! He loves hearing his students' opinions.

Comment:
Has the worst grading system ever. Nice guy but gets annoyed by small things that dont matter. Periodic assessments make no sense ever and take hours to complete just to get a low grade. Lectures are long and boring. Can be funny at times but made sociology harder than it has to be. He gives 50 points extra cred in the class. Nice guy tho.

Me and my 4 other friends took him at the same time and we all passed with A's. Everything is very easy and concrete. Just listen while he goes over the power point, do the assessments every week. Do the 50 point extra credit. The study guide is like the test. He's a good teacher you just gotta put in your effort.

Nope. Not even a quarter of the way through the semester and I dont like him. I tr y my best on his periodic assessments and he gives me a grade less than I deserve. Cant wait to see how hard he will be on the book review. I gotta finish the class now but I wouldn't recommend him to others. He's a nice guy though.

He's a really great teacher. The people that are complaining probably didn't show up to class. You have 2 tests, no quizzes, and then a final, they are all exactly like the study guides. Do your work and you can easily pass with an a or b

Ignore those negative posts. This professor works hard for you to do well. He wants you to do well. He works harder than all of the students do combined, just to make sure you enjoy the subject and learn it. I would take this class over and over again, excellent professor and anything but a hard course to do well in. He makes it easy and helps alot

Ignore the negative posts - Norris isn't just a good teacher, he's a great teacher - the best I've had here. He makes you work for your grade, but you will learn a lot. He cares and will work with you. He doesn't mumble and he's funny. If you want an easy A, don't take him. If you want a great sociology class, take him!

Avoid him. All he does is babble on and on and mumbles for half the class. He expects you to write 10 pages for every periodic assessment. Tests are easy if you memorize the crossword. He wants every single detail in the book review. Find a better teacher than doesn't bitc* about you not writing about what color macionis' eyes are. DinoNorris.
