Comment:
Speech class is utterly useless, but since it's a required course, he's the best teacher to take the course with. Weiss is an incredibly easy grader, and the most work you'll have to do is an outline at the end of the term. Be warned: you HAVE to go to class. Cutting class is the only way to fail his course.

While he takes the time to critique your work, and is an interesting guy, he screwed me over several times b/c he refuses to warn people when he's not showing up. Other than that, easy course, the classes are pointless, but he's mandates attendance, and calls on people randomly to speak. Easy grader, just don't attract attention to yourself.

Comment:
I left St.John's two years ago and Professor Weiss is one of the very, very few professors from this school who had an impact on me. Words can't express what Professor Weiss helped me realize about myself. By aking his courses, Speech and Discover NY, I learned an array of life lessons that will forever stay with me. Truely an inspiration!

Simple Logic, I got a 90+ on every single graded item and did the extra credit speech and recieved a D. His reasoning being absences, if you don't go to class he don't care about any of your work.

Although Prof. Weiss may give high grades in the end, he requires you to do a lot of work. However, he takes the time to critique your work, which will aid you in writing and your overall work habits in all your present and future classes. Take him-- you will not regret it.

Smart guy. As long as you come prepared he'll give you a decent grade. Doesn't give too many A's but gives plenty of B;s. No work involved what so ever, just come to class and do the speeches and you're gauranteed atleast a B. If you really suck at speeches though, take someone else, because he won't just give you an A

Comment:
he is craaaazzzzy... he never hears what anyone is saying... he laughs at himself constantly, he thinks hes a comedian, which is funny in itself. when i had him the 2nd time he said "i'll give you an A bc i've had you before" and he did give me the A. take him for 2 classes & get an A in both. he can be boring but its worth it. craaaazzzzzzy!!!
