Comment:
I loved prof turkel! for woms389 she required a long paper and presentation, but ithey weren't bad at all. if you dont learn well when someone just stands in front of the class and speaks, i wouldn't recommend taking her class. textbook was barely used, and there was't any homework be sides papers

The exams are based mostly on the readings. I went to every class and studied my notes and skimmed the readings and it was a mistake. The amount of effort required for her teaching style is unnecessary.

Comment:
She is a big lecturer. She stands in front of the room and speaks. You pretty much have to write everything down that she says as well as read the textbook which is A LOT. The exam questions are very specific and she does not give any sort of study guide or anything to tell you what you should expect. Not impossible to get a good grade but hard to.

Comment:
too hard. tests with no study guide. the tests have info that is only talked about in class. no power points. you have to know her material verbatim for the test. the test requires 5 short answers, 10 multiple choice, 20 true/ false. the short answers are so hard. if you have the opportunity to not take this class DO NOT TAKE IT

Comment:
Boring lectures at times. Tough grading on tests, you have to be very specific, pay attention in class and take notes, read the textbook and you'll be fine. The group project was annoying. She's very easy to get along with even if you don't agree with her on things. She won't judge you or belittle your opinions which was good.

Comment:
She doesn't really put notes on the board very often so you have to pay attention while taking notes. That part was annoying, but I found her to be very nonjudgmental about disagreeing opinions, which I was concerned about taking this class since I'm not really a feminist, but she was good at embracing opinions she disagreed with.

Comment:
Her tests are difficult because she's very specific, but as long as you study the review questions and read the textbook readings you will be fine. Class material is on exams, don't skip class. As someone who's not super into feminism, I was actually surprised at how open minded and unbiased she was. She's good at accepting opposing opinions.

Comment:
I'm not sure why people are saying that she shoots you down if you disagree with her. I disagreed with her sometimes during class discussions and she was good at accepting my opinion, and other people who disagreed as well. If you're not a feminist like I wasn't, this class will definitely make you a feminist after you learn about it. Hard tests

Such an amazing teacher. Her lectures are so interesting and engaging that you won't even want to skip class. Class discussions are always enjoyable and she is really good at being open minded and accepting everyone's opinions even if they disagree. Tests are hard, very specific, so make sure to read the textbook and take notes in class.

Wonderful class. She is very good at explaining material clearly and class discussions are always meaningful and interesting. She is also very easy to talk to. Her tests are hard, you really have to study all of the readings and class notes because she's pretty specific, but the material is enjoyable and always a good read.

Comment:
Professor Turkel's lectures are interactive and interesting. She's one of my favorite professors at Delaware and makes woman's studies fun. Tests don't deviate from her study guides, and any projects or papers she gives are usually quick and easy. Definitely go to class though because most of her information is from note taking.

Comment:
Professor Turkel lectures every class and it can get very boring. Her tests come straight from the study guide she gives you but some of the true false questions can be very specific and difficult. She is a tough test grader and will give points off if you don't mention every little detail.

Comment:
Dr. Turkel is one of my favorite classes. Not only does she create great discussions, she is so approachable. Class isn't too hard. Study from the study guides she gives you and you'll do fine. Go to class because some things from class that arent in the readings do show up on the exams. But her class is so interesting I didn't want to skip.

Comment:
Dr. Turkel was amazing. I had to miss a lot of class due to health issues and she was super helpful and understanding about it. You have to do the assigned reading if you want to pass the exams. Most of the exam questions are directly off of the study guide, but there are a few that you have to be in class for. Definitely takes WOMS201 with her!

it's literally her talking the entire time, no slides and no notes on the board, she goes by the information too fast too.

Fantastic professor, is knowledgeable on the subject. She helped me out immensely during the semester when I missed a group project presentation and made sure I got appropriate credit. Even though I got a C in the class, I'd say anyone who's even remotely interested in Women's Studies should take one of her classes.

This class was overall really interesting, Turkel is a great woman. However you have to be prepared to read and STAY ON TOP OF IT. All of her tests (3) are extremely straight forward, she gives you study guides. Just do the reading because the questions on the test reflect the reading. Her test questions are almost identical to study guide ones too

This class was great. Super easy: 3 exams, 2 quizzes, and a 3 page paper. The exams are easy as long as you do the reading and come to class. She gives out extra credit for coming to class and participating. The quizzes were cake and so was the paper. Turkel is really nice and easy to talk to. The discussions get pretty interesting as well.

Professor Turkel is a very nice person. It's a pretty easy class overall as long as you show up, take notes, and do the readings, you should be fine. I was actually surprised how tolerant she is of opinions that oppose her, she is a great professor overall.

Comment:
Professor Turkel is just so wonderful. You can tell that she really does care about the well being of her students, and she relates to the class very valuable information. You definitely should attend classes and use the text book in order to prepare for tests. They're not really that hard if you have a prior knowledge of feminist ideals.
