29. Other comments:
Professor Hallet was extremely sarcastic throughout the semester. Using sarcasm when talking about issues that were serious and I don't think everyone understood. His sarcastic remarks and demeanor made him seem like he himself did not care about or take the course material seriously. I did not enjoy him as a professor and felt that he did not cover what he originally explained as the course objectives. I was very disappointed when he spent over half the class talking about his own personal political beliefs and expressing those beliefs to be 'right' and that others were wrong. I would not take another class from him and I hope he does not continue to teach with sarcasm as his main resource because it makes students like me feel as though he doesn't care.
The material covered in this course is stimulating and interesting. It's amazing how the material seems so common sense, yet it isn't. I wish the material could be dne in grade school or done as a children book series. Having people understand these concepts at a young age would make the world such a better place. Thank you Professor Hallet!
The only suggestion I would give for this course would be smaller class sizes and more group discussion or class interaction. It isn't really feasible in such a large class (which is NOT Professor Hallett's fault), but it would make learning stick much better.
Should figure out a more organized way to share news logs so everyone has to speak at least once within the semester.
Mr. Brien knows his stuff, but needs to be more direct and not going about it in around-about way. The classroom mike is terrible and needs to be replaced. This course was like a WI, for I was not anticipating the length of time of doing five news articles a day plus neglected readings. People fell asleep in this class. I found myself fighting to stay awake and alert, but it was with great efforts not to be rude and I busied myself taking lengthy notes. Is there a way to teach this class without putting us to sleep in class? Yet busting butt outside of class scrambling for news articles and the assigned readings that were hardly referred to during class. It was like two separate courses or one incomplete course that was very hard to make the connections in order to apply it somewhere.
thanks for letting us use a sheet of paper for the test
Awesome professor with great examples for his lectures. Keep up the good work!
Mahalo. You're class was truly a different perspective for me.
The only thing that bothered me was when he would cough into the microphone at the podium.
Prof. Hallett was a good professor. His lectures were not very interesting but he was very knowledgeable about the course.

22. Other comments:
The review for the exams seemed to be misleading from the actual exam.
I"m not sure where I stand in the course, which is something I wish Dr. Hallett would change. I do enjoy this course a lot. I like the news logs but I feel that three rather than five is enough. I feel after the third one, I am just clawing for anything else. I enjoy listening to the topics being discussed and they have definitely helped me in real life situations. I would recommend this course to my friends for sure. Dr. Hallett is very organized and without a doubt knows what he is teaching. A breath of fresh air..
Spending half of the classes reporting on newspaper articles felt elementary and unnecessary. Lecture slides were dense and difficult to read. I did not feel challenged by assignments or exams, or that classes were generally useful. If attendance is taken, it should be factored into the final grade. It is unfair that someone who came to zero classes could potentially receive the same grade as someone who came to every class.
The daily news logs were quite time-consuming, although they did get me into the habit of reading multiple news articles every day.
great!

Brien Hallet is the man.
Because this was a practicum, Professor Hallett allowed me to design my project and move forward with it at my pace. During our meeting he would give me great advice and direction. This course was an excellent opportunity to experience self-directed academic study. The areas above that I put neutral are meant to indicate not applicable. Thank you, Professor Hallett.

Great class and I'll be sure to suggest it to others.
He is great!
I have had the privaledge of taking Professor Brien Hallet's MLK and Gandhi writing intensive course in the spring of 2007. I learned much from the course. This is the reason why I decided to take my ethics requirement under Brien Hallet. He is fair and just in grading, and I have witnessed his exceptional way of teaching. Materials were readily available, and Professor Hallet made sure that everyone was provided sufficient learning materials. It is refreshing to know that Brien Hallet has not relied fully on the newly implemented "paperless" class curriculum. Not everyone has access to the internet at a given time. I feel that the UH should accomodate Professor Hallet in all aspects of teaching.
this is a great class
Super boring class
Professor Hallett was a great teacher. He explained material in a way that was very easy to understand, using examples that we could relate to. I also really enjoyed our discussions of current events. His breadth of understanding is evident in his ability to give educated opinions on nearly every issue!

I think Brien Hallett is an exstrodanary person filled with pass and present knowledgeof current events
I would recommend this class to everyone. The instructor makes you think outside the conventional ways of thinking.
I loved how Hallett relied heavily on documentaries. They allowed us to connect more strongly with the movements we read about because we got to connect emotionally with the people who led them. Very effective.

This professor is really knowledgeable. Great professor. One thing though, exam was kind of hard.
Excellent course! The newspaper journal discussions were enlightening.
This class lacked critical thinking and connecting to the material. I could not say that I learned much in this class. It was basicly remembering exactly what the Professor wants.
Prof. Hallett really knew the subject and was really nice, but seemed to not like it when we asked questions. At the end of class he would ask if we had questions but by that point everyone was ready to go to lunch. This class would have been better if he had encouraged more discussion. However, I still learned a lot and am glad I took the class.

By far one of the best professors I have ever had. My only critique is that the amount of time used in the computer lab was longer than necessary, and thus it could have been better spent in the classroom.
Excellent course and instructor!
I learned so much in this class and wished that I had chosen PACE as a minor. Great teacher with great examples to relay his message.

Well he didnt grade well and he was very oppinionated. and my i sujest to upgrate the technology a bit. Slow down on your lectures for no one can write down everything.
Mr. Hallett is a good teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable of the subject and he inspires me to learn about issues around the world. His class seemed a little routine and we knew what we were going to do everyday in class. I wish that there could have been more class activities and different assignments so that there is more variety. This would help us learn concepts better. Also, sometimes he did not e-mail back in a timely manner. I also don't like how grades are not available to students until after the final exam. This makes students feel like they are going into the final exam blindly when they do not know their progress in the class throughout the semester.
Good overall professor, no problems with the professor or the course. Would have liked to see the course with a WI/Writing Intensive designation though.
Great professor, very knowledgeable. would take a class from him again.
loved the lectures and that you didn't use powerpoint. awesome course overall
Keep up the good work!

This class was amazing. Professor Hallett setup the class very well. Perhaps making the video game part of the class a group effort would be a better experience in learning what is needed to form a non-violent movement. Other than that minor detail, BRAVO! Very glad I took this course and got a chance to meet professor Hallett and his wonderful work. I look forward to reading his book when it is released.
