Winter 2020 - Okay the simple thing is that you possibly can not know what grade you are going to get. He grades completely unfairly. He makes no comments whats so ever on essays, rather makes grammar corrections, then gives you a B/B- (WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN) Okay so lets begin First you have a ID, Map Quiz (the ID's are not hard as long as you put the correct information and memorize the info) The Map on the other hand makes no sence. He gives you locations, send you home and says google them. Literally the places he gives overlap one another so it makes absolutely zero sense... Anyways I got an A+ on the ID portion and a B on the map, combined I received an A for the exam (this is in week 4) Then you have your first essay (4 pages, you CAN NOT pass 5). He cares more for grammar than content. Your introduction paragraph make or breaks you. Literally take it for him to read because if he dosent like you intro then you will get a B on the essay. INTRO IS MORE IMPORTANT THEN THE ENTIRE ESSAY. In addition, make sure you make your intro exactly I repeat exactly like the example he gives. He says you can write it differently, even approves it during office hours, then claims you did not do it exactly as he wanted. Final is the same. Pay attention to page numeration, citations, sentence structures. Advice from me is read up to week 4 as it is essential to for the ID exam, you can stop after. The essays he covers in lecture, you can just go back and incorporate in your essay. Anyways, I got an A but this guy gave me ANXIETY. I really don't recommend since he is highly unorganized and dosent really seam to care much (even though he says he does). I learned things I didn't know before, it was interesting I am not going to lie, but the stress was not worth it.
