13. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
The way Professor Lefcourt teaches his class now is perfect. I don't recommend him changing anything. I enjoyed coming to class and the work is not that difficult.
none
I wouldn't say he'd have to improve on anything in the course because not only did he offer lectures with examples from relative work history from the police department, he also encouraged us to participate in course work that involved us to overcome reading our weekly writings to our classmates.
14. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Professor Lefcourt is a great professor. I plan on taking more of his classes in the future. In fact, I am enrolled in one of his classes next semester. He is very insightful and has a lot of knowledge to pass on to his students. I would recommend anyone is the justice administration major to enroll in his courses.
Great teacher. Taking him again during summer.
Overall, Professor Lefcourt is a well-rounded teacher, easy to talk to, and very understanding. The assignments that I learned I definitely used to apply to my practicum at the Honolulu Police Department as well.

Great! I learned a lot and enjoyed the class.
Good.
This was a fun course because it dealt with police management and leadership styles. I was able to apply certain leadership skills to my internship and role played scenarios as a future police officer from what I learned.
