Comment:
Dr. Godfrey is a sweet guy but a terrible teacher. He assigns too much for one semester and he can't tell time! He literally always keeps us at least five minutes after we should have gotten out of class. He also assigns homework on things we haven't learned yet and it makes everything confusing. I wouldn't take him...

Dr. Godfrey is a very sweet professor who is extremely intelligent. He knows his subject inside and out and is always willing to help and guide his students. Dr. Godfrey will challenge his students to think critically and work hard, so do not expect extra credit or bonuses. Try hard, ask questions, and participate and you will be successful.

Dr. Godfrey is a very nice guy. Unfortunately he disappeared with the illness as the other rater said, but when he was there he was doing a fine job. Set up appointments to meet with us and talk about the papers, which was helpful. Hopefully he's okay and back to work this semester.

Dr. Godfrey was a nice guy. Showed up late sometimes, but hey what are you gonna do. Disappeared midway through the semester because of an illness, but the class was pretty easy. Just show up, do what you're told, and you can get an A.

Comment:
Dr. Godfrey can't tell time. He over scheduled assignments and tests, as well as class presentation time. He hurried us through our presentations, and then graded us accordingly. We did poorly, because we were hurried. It was incredibly unfair. I wanted to learn linguistics, but everything was so hurried that I didn't get the chance.

Comment:
An accelerated summer course. His teaching was strong. He was able to gauge class understanding and pace accordingly. Only the last class was rushed teaching. Grading is an issue. He returned only one test and no papers. Faster turnaround would have helped. A soft-spoken and congenial man. I recommend the course.

He is a good teacher. His class can be a little dry but he tries to change that as much as his field allows. He definitely will help you if you're stuck and is always there for you. He grades fairly as long as you're there and you have studied your material well enough.

Godrey was a good teacher. Yes his class was boring but he was a nice guy who was more then willing to help. As long as you showed up to class and wrote what he told you you got a good grade.

Comment:
i like dr. godfrey. his class is a little dry, but i mean it's linguistics, i really don't think it could be fun with anyone. tests are pretty hard, so are "projects" just try to stay on top of everthing as much as possible. for the most part, the material builds on itself

His tests are really tough, but he is very helpful when it comes to being there for his students. He is always available for extra help or to answer any questions you may have. You only have 2 tests, but they each count as 30% of your grade.. mini projects count as 10%. Tests can be tricky. Little-to-no homework (and he doesn't check)

Horrible Teacher! The class is so boring! He keeps you to the last min. and all you do is get into groups and "talk". He takes FOREVER to get your papers back! We turned in our papers a Month and a half ago and he still hasn't looked at them! Take someone else!

BLAH! I had to take this class over again with a different professor. First attempt with him as my prof, I got a D-, second attempt with different Prof, I got an A. Speaks for itself, folks.

Again, if you're not a complete doofus, you should do okay with Godfrey. He does grade a little harshly, but he's fair, and he's always willing to help you out. I think for lower level classes he just expects a bit much. If you're a good writer though, don't worry about it. I had no trouble, and I'd say I'm about average.

Take someone else. I think I heard Moll(?) is good. This guy is hard, the subject matter was awful and he didn't make it any better. His smiles were always the brightest on test days (how sadistic is that?) But he was a nice man and probably wanted us to do well, it was just a horrible class and he didn't make it any better.

He is a very sweet man but his class was SO HARD! I barely got a C and had to work my butt off for it. Do not take him, his tests are so hard and he treats the class as if it were a 400 level course not a 200 level.

He is unclear about everything. Even when asked directly he won't tell you exactly what is on a test, and every test is INNCREDIBLY hard. Does not believe in curving or extra credit, and there are only about 4 grades to go on, so don't mess up early. very hard subject matter. Don't take this class.

he taught everything well, but stuck to his opinion- ie: a lot of people thought one of the test ?s was questionable and he said 'oh yeah i see what you guys meant' but still didn't revise the grades, still he's a nice guy
