Comment:
It took me a little while to get used to Dr. Knox and his grading style. He is very thorough in grading, but it is because he genuinely cares about his students. There is one paper, the family autobiography. It is time-consuming but totally worth the effort. Overall, great professor! Taken online due to COVID

I took my soci class online and I was easy. But I used the study guide on the test and made 80s and 90s on every test. The TA is really nice and theres not much work in this class

I took this class as an elective, but it has probably been my favorite class that I have taken at ECU. The things that Dr. Knox teaches are important life lessons so you actually want to pay attention. He gives out study questions before each exam, complete those and you'll ace the exams!

Knox can be hard to hear but sit close and it won't be a problem. His TA Keely takes attendance and WILL mark you if you're absent (10 pts off a test grade). There are 3 online tests that are right out of the study guide (typically 11-13 pages) so buy the textbook and find the answers in there (you have weeks to do both luckily). 20 pts EC offered

First part of class is lecture for 30 min, then speakers are brought in on the topic, then watch a video. All topics that are relevant and fun to learn about. Have to go to class because a TA takes attendance. All tests are online and Knox is funny and keeps the class very interesting. Really enjoyed this class

Dr. Knox is AMAZING! So fun to listen to and has great stories. The tests are difficult but can be taken online and he gives you two weeks to complete them. The attendance is mandatory which is what hurt my grade. The TA takes attendance even though its a class of 250... so stupid. I am taking Dr. Knox again next semester for Human Sexuality.

Class is interesting . I only missed one class. My attendance grade took a crazy hit all because my phone was on my desk. The TA Keely doesn't give the benefit of the doubt or hear you out. I did well on all four test and ended up getting a grade lower than all my test scores. Absolutely ridiculous how attendance is weighted like a test and faulty

I loved the learning aspect of the class but deeply butted heads with Knox. He's cool don't get me wrong but he can be a jerk through emails. He is not understanding at all and once I emailed him saying I was struggling with the amount of info we had to study for a exam and all he responded was with a "move on & get over it". Very frustrating.

Decent teacher, but he was not understanding at all when I had a severe case of the flu and had to go to the ER on the day of a test. A doctors note from the ER was not enough for him to allow me to retake this exam. I spoke with the dean on this matter and applied for a grade appeal. I highly advise everyone against taking this class with Knox.

I loved professor Knox. He had interesting lectures. His TA (Keely) was horrible i could not stand her. if you showed up a second late, were on your phone, or talk during lecture she will take 10 points off your attendance grade. I am not a soci major but this class was obtainable to my life so i found it interesting.

Make sure to show up to every class. Attendance gets 10 points off every time you miss class, are on your phone, etc. Tests are straightforward and little work outside class is needed. Lectures are super fun and interesting. Dr. Knox makes things fun and relatable to students.

This class is very interesting but dont sign up unless you are ready to go to every single class. You get 10 points off your attendance grade every time you miss a class, which counts as a test grade. and 10 points off if youre caught on your phone. the lectures are very interesting though and always have guest speakers. tests you can find online

Professor Knox is very entertaining and class is always fun. Your only grades are attendance and 4 tests. The tests are very easy. I really enjoyed this class.

Highly recommend his courtship and marriage class! Its fun, interesting, and engaging. You do have to study and do some work but its very worth it, I was never bored in class. Hes very knowledgeable and the information is relevant. Definitely take it if you can!

He gives 300 question study guides for a 50 question test and you basically have to memorize every single question. Three exams and one final note test. The class is structured very weird, lectures and then go home and teach yourself the material from the textbook. I should have dropped this class when I had a chance.

There are 5 tests and 2 extra credit opportunities. I advice you to take part of the extra credit to have that as a boost for your grade bc if you flop on all the exams its a wrap for your grade. Knox isn't the worst but he isn't the best either. Assigned seating. The class was interesting as far as speakers & videos. Fairly recommend. Late course.

Great professor and you think the class will be easy, but you HAVE to study. His tests are very very intense and you have to study the study guide and have it practically memorized to get an A on the exams. I took him for human sexuality and I learned so many things for the real world. Very smart man and writes his own textbooks. You need the books

Dr. Knox is a great professor. The subject matter is very interesting. He has 3 text tests which come straight from the book and 1 notes test which is on all the lectures. Each absence is 10 points off your attendance grade which is worth 1 exam. The tests aren't bad but if you plan to skip, do not take this class.

This was one of my favorite classes! The lectures are interesting every day and there is NO WORK other than the tests! Make sure to actually do the study guides if you want an A, quizlets are often wrong for his tests. Wish I could take this class again.
