His lectures were very entertaining and he enjoys what he teaches! He puts things into perspective. I looked forward to his lectures, but their not mandatory as he posted recaps and reminders after classes. Highly recommend this course!

Comment:
Amazing prof and kind individual, but the class was tougher than expected. You really need to read all textbook chapters to do well on the tests. The assignment itself wasn't hard, but it was graded hard (i.e. using a holistic approach). Overall, this course was interesting and definitely learned a lot, and the prof is amazing! But not an easy A!

Prof Turtle is passionate about the class and the class itself is interesting. However the course is only marked on three things. The test though are a bit difficult. study the lectures and textbook in depth. The essay although easy was marked a bit hard. Overall a good course would recommend taking it not too hard to do well.

Prof Turtle was a pleasure. He really cares about you and wants you to succeed. He will explains things in class in detail, especially what to expect on exams and the assignment, though the assignment always changes. His short answer questions were easy and he made the final exam open book because of the pandemic. He also was a fair marker. Swell.

What a sweet and caring professor who roots for his students. He teaches so enthusiastically, and tries to engage everyone through lectures and guest speakers. Midterms were a bit tricky, but fair. Hard marker for the paper, and really no feedback and unclear grading scale for it. But, a solid prof especially if you're interested in this field!

Comment:
There is something about this prof that irritates me. The paper we were given was 40% and he informed us of how it would be graded and what to do to get an A. I followed that advice to the letter and i still got a 70% and his feedbacks of the essay do not help at all. They are the most useless things in my life, my feedback was this paper is great

Prof Turtle is a very knowledgable professor who wants to see his students succeed. Very considerate & cares about making sure material is understood. Clear grading criteria (essay, midterm, final). Takes the time to explain concepts. Also appreciated the guest speakers who were experts in forensic psychology. Would take a course with him again!

Took psy of thinking a LONG time ago and it was easily my favourite of all time. I talked about what I was learning in class with friends non stop bc I was so excited. I've gone on to get my master's of social work and it was all because Professor Turtle got me passionate about psychology. A life- changing prof - will never forget him.

Very intelligent, interesting, and passionate about what he is teaching. Very well-prepared for lectures, and has lots of energy. He inspired me to choose Psychology as my major when I wasn't sure which major to choose. Thank you Prof. Turtle! :) Also, he wasn't bad to look at ;)

I absolutely loved John Turtle, amazing prof. His passion for the material he teaches, and the enthusiasm that comes along with it is great. He's pretty hilarious, and evem the topics the he warns us will be "dry" he makes it as interesting as possible. You need to go to his lectures, and understand the text, but marks very fairly.
