Comment:
If you are debating on taking Dr. Thompson-- JUST DO IT! She is the sweetest lady you will ever meet and cares so much. Due to her having students in many different times zones she does recorded lectures, 3 tests, and a simple 20-minute presentation project. She makes it where you can succeed in all of her classes and responds to emails so fast!

only 4 tests; read the chapter, study her lecture notes and use all the tools in the text book - she wrote the book! teacher decided to video tape her lecture so we never had a 'real zoom class"; no interaction with the teacher or other students- this made learning very difficult

I loved her lectures, very interesting and you watch a lot of videos. You have to take notes from her speaking, but she repeats important info. You're grade is the average of 4 tests(including final), but she gives extra work for bump points. Attendance is mandatory but I enjoyed going every time and she gives you 3-4 freebees for absences.

Very solid professor! I love her. She teaches off of a online interactive textbook that she co-authored, and it has SO many wonderful study tools. There's no homework or papers, only four exams, but if you utilize the online platform you will do well. Pretty interesting material too!

Dr. Thompson co-authored the class textbook, so she's really knowledgeable. The only downside, is that all of your grade rests on how well you do on the exams. There are no other assignments or extra credit. But, pay attention and read all of the chapters, and you'll be fine.

This class is really interesting, and Dr. Thompson is super knowledgable about sociology. The class itself is really easy. There are only 4 tests including the final and that's it. However, it's not that hard to get As on the tests if you read the textbook and study. She'll also round your grade 2% if you do the discussion threads. I'd recommend!

Pay attention to lectures and take notes. There are only four grades and be sure to study for a really really long time to secure the A. There are quizlets on the textbook that literally saved my life. I didn't even read the book too much. If you just study the quizlets intensely you'll get a B or A depending on the test.

I LOVE Angela. She was so passionate about Sociology and also so intelligent. She is so funny and makes every class interesting. You get 3 unexcused absences. Also, the only grades are 3 exams. To do well, you should read the textbook and do the activities on the online textbook. Questions on the test are application. KNOW THE DEFINITIONS

Dr. Thompson is a great teacher! Her lectures are very informative and uses a lot of real life examples to keep you engaged. you watch a lot of video clips and she does lecture a lot. Test are 50 multiple choice question and they are not extremely difficult if you study well. i went thu all the textbook chapters for each test and got low As!

Class is graded only on three tests and one presentation that is an hour and 20 minutes long. Can be done in groups or alone but then the class is mainly other group presentations. Not a lot of her lecturing and then the tests sometimes covers things not gone over in class

She is a really nice professor and it's a very interesting class but test are extremely difficult and you have to be ready to read and study weeks before the test. You only have 4 exams and nothing else that factors into your grade so that sucks too because they're tough. Avoid taking if you can!

Dr. Thompson was an amazing professor. She was clear about what would be on the tests and really strove to explain the material and make it relatable. There was a lot of class discussion, which helped us grow as a class together. I definitely recommend her class.

Dr. Thompson is an AMAZING and hilarious lecturer. The one thing I'm not crazy about is that she gives most of her lectures verbally (no powerpoint, etc), but the way she teaches things makes you remember them. She co-wrote the textbook, so quite a bit of the test material comes from there, but the tests are otherwise not hard.

Thompson is a very nice lady & an interesting lecturer. She includes videos and examples that make the content relatable. However, there are only 4 grades (3 tests + 1 final) which make it really hard to get an A. There's no homework which is nice but definitely have to read & study the textbook, study lecture notes, and read & study extra content.

This class was absolutely awful. Her tests were clearly not written herself - the questions were in different fonts and not in complete sentences. The tests were not over the lectures in class. She used "umm" and "ahh" while reading her notes in class and it was SO annoying. She also pushed her political agenda the majority of the time.

I LOVED Dr. Thompson! Be ready to know every detail in the textbook. Attendance is mandatory. Grade is based off of 4 tests, but the final is a regular unit test. Hard to get an A because of the amount of tests, but she offers 2 points added to a grade ending in an 8 if you do all the discussion boards.

Your final grade comes from only 4 tests. She and another professor here wrote the online textbook that they use. The class is very interesting but be ready for a lot of note taking. Also, you watch videos in class. She is great about answering questions and is super super nice.

Can't say anything bad about Prof. Thompson, her lectures are interesting, she gives you time to take notes (IMPORTANT), Only 4 Exams (50 Multiple Choice) but as long as you read your notes, the textbook, & her pre-made Quizlets you'll do fine.

Intro to Sociology was a great class and I enjoyed going to listen to her lecture everyday. Very entertaining and interesting! Class grade is only made up of 4 tests which makes getting an A difficult. Tests are ok but require a lot of studying. Overall would take the class again just because of Prof. Thompson! Easy B, do-able A!
