Professor Johnson is one of the best Psychology professors! I really enjoyed the class (even though I may have fallen asleep several times, but I do this in EVERY class unfortunately...) if you are interested in developmental psychology, this is the best class to take as it gives you an introduction to it and is not overwhelming. It was a fairly easy class, just make sure you pay attention to lectures as most of the exam questions are from here. There are several odd-ball questions from the reading book, and honestly, I did not read but skimmed it and still managed to get an A-. This may be because he does drop your lowest score if I remember correctly, and there is a generous curve. My FAVORITE PART OF CLASS was when he showed us video clips of the experiments he was talking about. He also likes to show graphs. If you are a visual person, this class is great since he incorporates visuals. Great class! I would definitely recommend. He is also a very funny and SARCASTIC guy. His jokes are funny and he is even great if you have him for his honors discussion for this class. Unfortunately, I had to drop it, but my friend said he shared a lot about his personal life and it was just fun to listen to it and get to know the professor outside of lecture.

I'm sure he's great in lecture classes, but I took his lab and it was a different story. I heard 131 was supposed to be really easy, but it was NOT - we had to write way too much compared to other lab classes. I also heard he was supposed to be an easy grader, but that was not the case either :/ He also comes off as kind of arrogant. I would avoid if possible, or if you want to take 131 do it with Greenfield or Sandhofer. I do not recommend taking lab with him.

TAKE THIS CLASS!! 100% for my psych majors who need a low stress class/GPA booster. No exams, no homework except 2 readings per class period that range from ~1-7 pages each. Your grade heavily relies on group work; you get together to answer questions in a group which I found kind of fun! The only cons is the optional paper isn't really optional as you need to do it to get an A, but honestly it was super manageable (2-3 pages) and the fact that other students grade you and sometimes people would rate you low even if you participated. Nonetheless I ended up getting an A+ by doing the paper, extra credit, and completing questions with my team (you can miss 3 days of class no penalty!) prof Johnson is also super amazing! Accommodating and so funny!
