13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the knowledge we gained from this course. To open our eyes to the things we neglect to learn or watch or read. However, my eyes are now more opened to the different things going on in the world and not just in the US.
EVERYTHING! Yes even the assignments!
I liked that we had individual assignments as well as group activities so our class was never boring. To top it off we got a field trip toward the end of our semester.
Learning how to conduct a mock disaster incident training and everything involved in it.
I liked the fact that we were given situations and we needed to work them out just like how the real life crisis management teams would.
learned about our governement and a lot about terrorism and alot to homeland security.
Group assignments
I really enjoy that fact that this isn't your typical class. It's so intriguing and interesting. I never know what to expect when I walk into class and I like that because it keeps me on my toes. I am much more aware of what's going on in the world and I understand things better. I can actually read an article online about something dealing with the brotherhood and I can understand it all now.
I liked the section about Muslims and terrorist.
group projects, incident command projects
That we got to tak about and cover topics/subjects that are happening at this very moment. Such as the action going on right now in the Middle East.
I liked the exercises that Mr. V had us do. I learned a lot from these exercises and the hands-on emergency planning gave us a great out look on every aspect and agency that gets involved on county, state and federal levels.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More videos...
Just keep doing what he's doing!
No.
Have more of a flow to the class. We kind of jumped between subjects.
Tours of agencies or organizations relating to Homeland Security is an essential learning experience.
Nope. Love it the way it is.
less terrorism
None
None, excellent job.

Mr. "V" was such an awesome instructor!
Awesome class this semester.

Definitely going to miss this class and everyone in it. It's not everyday where you find a class and the people that you truly love.
Mr. V is a great instructor. He is probably the best one I had all semester

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I really enjoy this course. It is interesting to learn about the corrections system and I find it facinating.
Group interaction
This is hands down not only my favorite AJ course I've ever taken, but my favorite course in my entire college history. I am always motivated to go to Mr.V's class & it is always entertaining. I like how we do such a variety of things because it kept me motivated. I love hearing the personal stories because this is his area of expertise. Love love love this class. I wish I could repeat it.
I really enjoyed the tours they were awesome, i would have never gotten to see theses places if not for this class.
Every class was excited for me! This class was never boring, always learning something new. I think the best activity was visiting the jails, what an experience.
I enjoyed everything about this corrections course from activities to assignments. It's an awesome class with an awesome instructor.
we went on tours and had guest speakers. I also liked that it was always an open discussion instead of a strict lecture, we got to put in our input. that made it very comfortable to express our opinions. our teacher also was straight up with us and told us the truth, he did not sugar coat the profession of corrections. the reason he is so knowledgeable is from all his experience.
I enjoyed this class. Having the different guest speakers and going on the tours of the correctional facilities here in Hilo. Mr. Veriato is a good teacher and I learned a lot from him and his class.
He is so cool and down to earth. Uses alot of personal experiences to realate to course subjects. He also brings in intresting guest speakers and loves his choice of class debates to interact the class.
I really enjoyed this class and I have learned a great deal about our correctional system here in the State of Hawaii. Mr. Veriato is a wonderful professor and he has such a great personality. He made the class fun which made it a lot easier to learn and understand what he was teaching us.
Mr. Veriato is a very good instructor. He not only spoke to us by using the books but also from personal experience. Mr. V is very open and honest about subjects and he always makes us look at things for both sides. I like what he stands for and his integrity. I hope to have Mr. Veriato again in my future classes. The tour we had of Hale Nani and the Hilo Jails was very eye opening, by doing these I hope he can persuade people from not wanting to be there.
I really liked that we got to go to the jails and see how things are run there. Learning from his experiences in the field. I just basically liked his teaching
I liked the excursions that we went on. Checking out HCCC and Hale Nani was a huge eye openner for me.
Everything ! It was a fun and educational !
I enjoyed class discussions because it opened up many questions that I could get answers because of Mr. V's career experience in the Law Enforcement as well as Corrections Field.

Dexter Veriato is an amazing instructor/lecturer. He really knows what he teaches very well. His teachings are better and better every time I take his class. :)
I'm glad I took this class this semester. I will be taking more of his classes.

After this clas I am still looking forward for a future occupation in the administration of justice field.
I'm definitely taking his next course for the Fall 2012

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
That he thought us very knowledgeable stuff.
The course was very informative and reflected issues that our country is dealing with today. The field trips were interesting and presented a better perspective of what we were learning.
The instructor was fair and considerate. He is knowledgeable and sincere. He used different techniques to understand the protocol and seriousness of homeland security. His course was appropriately and understandably easy to comprehend. He is also humble. I wish I could take another class of his, however, I need to fulfill the requirements, so next semester I will miss taking another course!
HE made it very understandable and was always there whenever help was needed.
Learning about modern issues and things happening around the world.
when we had out of class activities it motivated me to learn more about homeland security
I enjoyed doing the group projects because it helped me to see things from other people's point of view
learning from someone who has so much knowledge on the issue was great.
Activities and assignments were implented to make you critically think about the course material learned. Not only did these assignments help me learn the subject at hand, but also how I can apply this to my future field of work.
I liked everything from the activities to the assignments. I enjoyed this course.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?

If the tech guys can give him help in securing the class activities to use his power-point, that would be a big help. Sometimes he could not access whatever to teach, but he always had a back up plan, and that to me is a person prepared and ready to present!

Mr. Veriato was always enthusiastic about teaching. He was thorough and gave students a chance to comply on completing assignments. His examples were easy to follow. He ensured that the students use the critical process to research project activities, although, some students did experience personal conflict. He was fair and encouraged that we all get along and support each other putting differences aside. It was a healthy and wholesome effort that he did address that we students support each other to grow in the learning of his course because it is real to life and I think more students will be amazed at the knowledge he presents. It makes one think more deeply and consciously, that our state is secured. The learning part is toward the ending of the semester, when we got in groups and immersed our strategies to make a plan should we experience a natural disaster. I learned to respect and appreciate the people who involve themselves that we the public are safe and how each command thoroughly work together to remedy a potential problem, such as Civil Defense, certain roadblocks, evacuation, and how little I know about my Hawaii when it comes to location and vulnerability to any kind of natural disaster. Furthermore, I think his classification to be higher than 180 course. It should be in "required" course for AJ major. Thank you.
Overall Great teacher! would definitely take another class from him.
Mahalos mr. veriato
Great instructor...
What an awesome semester Dex !!! :)

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I have learned many areas that has been gray to me. The world as some may see is changing today. I was really interested about the terrorist aspect of Homeland Security. This class has opened my eyes a little more about what we are up against today. My instructor was very knowleable abotu the topics we went over.The best thing about the class is it was spoken from a mn with experience.
I enjoyed the scenario assignments and the field trip to Civil Defense.
Dexter is a excellent lecturer.
The group projects were great, in which we had to come up with an (EOC) emergency operational center in a natural disaster situation, and could also be utilized in a homeland security situation for terrorism.
ICS (Incident commanding system)in class projects and feild trips was very intresting and very helpful in my job field !
Dexter is a perfrect instructor. He knows his stuff. Enjoyed having him as one of my instructors.
Everything
How he teach the class. Group group work was good.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I was hoping that we could have visited or get to see how Homeland Secutiry runs their check points but, i know security is tight there so that ok.
O.K. my braddah I know it's a pain in the ass but , you gotta tackle Laulima. they make me do it. New technology always intimidates us older gentlemen but I get no mercy when I try for use one Iphone. So we all must accept this technology as a challenge , not a choice.
I would suggest more field trips.
Mr Veriato knows what he is doing in this course. He has a lot of knowledge and experience and we have been priviledged to learn from him.
PERFECT already!
NOPE
15. Other comments:
Thanks Mr Veriato for the knowledge shared.
This message is too faculty and administrators, the Faction in charge! This is not related to HS class. I happen to appreciate teachers that remain grounded in reality. I came to college for an education not indoctrination, which means you better bring back Peterson or I'm gonna make a major stink. Try separate Church and State for once and stop offing our best instructors because stupid little girls get offended by real words. We are adults here and if we are not ,maybe the over sensitive christian freshmen twits need to repeat the 12th grade before they join us. Don't punish your best talent for keeping it real. Do not compromise my education! We want the truth, we paid for the truth and YOU have a responsibility to deliver the truth! Snuff religious fanaticism and give us what you promised! Or I will see to it that it hits the Universities pocket book. If you canned every Student or instructor that said a "bad " word You would end up either without a College to run or a College run by B.Y.U. so quit acting like wankers please. We at least deserve that.
He is a great teacher and rolemodel.
Great class! This class opens my eyes of what really goes on in life!

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
First time ever taking a class from Mr. Veriato and definitely would recommend his teachings to another student.
Nothing. I believe the way he teaches is a great way for us to learn. He doesnt make the class boring. everyday there is something new to learn about.
Teach more AJ classes!!!!!!!!!!!
if i was teaching i would probably doing the same methods he used for me in this semester.
Mr. Variato is the best teacher!!!! there is no need for improvement, and no need for change!! he is the best teacher!!!!!
Nothing! Everything taught in this course was excellent by Mr. Veriato
Great class would not change a thing was fun!!
Absolutely Nothing, he does an awesome job and should teach oter subjects:)
I wouldn't change anything. Mr. Veriato is an excellent instructor, he was always prepared. He used various skills, experience, and text book knowledge. All of the speakers we had in class pertained to the subject we were discussing from the text, as well as the chapter we were on, at the time that the speaker came to talk. He makes the class laugh and helps us to find humor despite all of us having our own personal issues. Further, one day I felt so down, but by the time I left class I was so happy and my soul was filled with joy. He makes a difference in all of our lives, and we all love going to class.
Nothing at all.
Reduce the number of students in class or provide more tables and chairs or a change in venue so that everyone has adequate seating.
Dexter was an awesome teacher I would recommend him to any student
i would not change a thing. the instructor taught this course very well and i was able to learn a lot.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
Very well rounded
I think that he can relate well with his students to make it an enjoyable subject to learn about and also making it enjoyable to come to class.
fun
It was great, I like the laid back, talk story type of atmospehere, where students and teacher can interact and voice opinions and talk freely about the subject matter. I really like the field trip to HCCC and Hale Nani, this experience gave me a better understanding of what was covered over the course of the semester.
I believe that many might say hes easy but its because he makes learning easy.
outstanding and informal
i cant even explain how wonderful he is! he makes learning fun and enjoyable!! he makes me want to learn!!!!!
My opinion on Mr. Veriato's teaching method was very real. He answered any questions that the students had and gave us a good insight about corrections.
very helpful
Mr. Veriato is a very understanding teacher/profess. and is willing to help you understand the concept of the correction process. He makes class so enjoyable and interesting. He's overall the best teacher in the AJ program.
I feel he is a great teacher, we should have more teachers like him in school. His methods are fabulous, he knows what he is doing. In fact he can quote or talk about any subject that pertains to corrections, policing and other topics. One day we were discussing a video that he showed, and later we discussed that video. It pertained to a prison in Louisianna, some of the inmates their I felt were denied their civil right, and never had a trial. I thought it was a type of slavery within that prison. Mr. veriato, then gave a a history of slavery. We went across the world, and came right back to Hawaii. That was an enlightening discussion. I never knew about that information, it would probably be something you learn in a history class. So he has great teaching methods, and is a great mentor for all those going into the criminal justice field.
I enjoyed hi teachings.
Mr. Variato has not only won my respect but my friendship. He is the kind of person I strive to associate with on my spare time, in work environments and in confidence about sensitive issues.
Very knowledgeable
his teaching methods were very good, for lack of better words. was always able to get the lesson across and easy to understand. gave his students points of views that i never even thought of before and was able to formulate our own opinions and helped to further enhance our knowledge
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Absolutely. I have a new outlook on the corrections and it's purpose
very much so.
Absolutely!!!!
He has given me the knowledge to pursue my dream job and now I have some connection getting in the Corrections.
yes
his contribution is impeccable!!!! i have learned so much from this class. not only have i obtained the knowledge, but i retained it too!!!
Mr Veriato's knowledge about corrections were right on. I have learned alot from this course, which I thought I knew pretty much before hand, however learned new information of the prison corrections and learned the difference of county jail vs state prisons.
He constantly reminds us of what we haveto expect when we get into the Administration of Justice feild and what we are up against. The speakers he has that comes to his classes are all very well trained and direct which I feel makes the decision on being in this feild even more thrilling. I really enjoyed his class and the topics we covered which, will help me have more of an understanding on how to prepare my Mom's and Babies Facility and what kind of people I will be dealing with.
Yes, what i have learned so far will help me if I should one day want to be an adult corrections officer or any other job within the criminal justice field.
Yes, he has.
Absolutely!, he has also provided a perspective often neglected and/or rejected by the general "uninformed public". He has provided me with information very valuable to the pursuit of a career in Law Enforcement, Law and Corrections as well as exposing hard truths about the psychology of people that our society as a whole is trying to conceal. He has re-affirmed my strengths as a student and a person and left me with little choice but to redefine my mission in life. he has revealed a "purpose through the haze" and I'm sure his brutal honesty has influenced other class mates to either "shit or get off the pot" no pun intended.
Definitely
he has definitely contributed to knowledge that i will use in my life everyday and he has also been able to help me increase my knowledge of job skills needed for the field of administration of justice

great teacher!
Awesome teacher.
Please teach more AJ courses.
you rock!
i feel that HCC should let Mr. Variato teach more classes!!!! he is an assest to HCC and the college should use that to the full extent! thank you Mr. Variato for all the wonderful things you do!!!CKK
I enjoyed this course and wish there were more course related to this one. Also I would like to add, that Mr. Veriato was a great teacher and would like to see him teaching more classes, related to criminal law because he is an excellent teacher! Also I felt comfortable in his class only because he is real with his teaching and does not make you feel uncomfortable, he listens, to what your question is about and tries to help by giving advise to the class on what ever subject we are discussing.
I would like to Thank Dexter Veriato for making educaion fun and exciting. Thank you for the interesting field trips and guess speakers. I would also like to say, Keep up the Good Work. Thanks for being such an understanding individual. Your class was fun and hope you start teaching more subjects. Good luck in life. Take Care and God Bless Much Mahalo Poch
He is a superb teacher, professional, understanding, fair, diciplined, and all the other good things that great people have, and qualities which I would want to gain in my life.
Mr.Veriato is an awesome teacher.
I chose my next A.J. course on behalf of my experience with this instructor alone.
Awesome teacher

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
nothing.
If I was the instructor, I wouldn't change or improve anything. It was a very fun class. Everyone loved his teaching. Many wanted to take his corrections class. I really enjoyed his course and what he had to say about current issues regarding Homeland Security.
The only thing that I can think of that could possibly improve this course is if we had some speakers in the Homeland Security field.
add up some more information about this course. it'll make it more interesting
Nothing, this teacher is great.
nothing! he is the best teacher for this field.
Absolutely notthing....
i feel as if this class needs no changes and in fact there should be more like this at this campus!
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
it was great and he made it easy to learn
As I said above, it was really fun. He explained things to the point, briefly going over everything but at the same time explaining the details, so we as a class knew the material which had to be learned.
very good teaching methods and makes the class easy to understand
Prof. Veriato brings in years of experience into the classroom. Prof. Veriatos most useful teaching method is his years of experience as a Hawaii County Police Officer. Dexter uses different types of media (videos, power point presetnations, hand-outs, etc.) to help the students better understand the difficult and at most times culturally sensitive concepts surrounding each topic. Through Prof. Veriatos teaching methods we were able to cover a tremendous amount of information this semester. Almost every aspect of homeland security was covered from post 9/11 to what the Patriot Act has in store for our future.
It's awsome
I think this teachers methods of teaching is brilliant.
I believe that Dexters teaching methods are good. When you have a teacher with a lot of street smart intelligence, the way of the teaching becomes very unique.
awesome
His awesome and very understanding. Real good fun teacher has very interesting stories. I will be taking his correctional process class to achieve my BA degree. He is a wonderful and very Ike (Knowledgeable) person.
I enjoyed Mr. Veriato and he is a great teacher!
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
yes he did.
He has definitely contributed to my general knowledge of Homeland Security (HS), in fact it is my favorite class so far. During this course, I have learned a great deal about our government, specifically about HS.
yes
Prof. Veriato has contributed not only to my general knowledge of the subject matter, but valuable skills that would be useful in any career field as well.
yes, he does
Yes, he has contributed enormous amounts of knowledge towards me to learning for whatever my future career may be. I have learned to think outside the box and to think or figure out whats inside the other box, if that makes sense. If that doesn't make sense then you should sit in his class.
Yes
very much so
Very much so...I was really thinking of dropping his class because i could not see his Homeland Security Class to hep me in the in coming years. I gave his class a chance and i later loved his class. It was so interesting and educational.
I feel as if this class has made me want to get into working in homeland security!!

I'd just like to say thank you so much Mr. Veriato. You do a great job at teaching!
