22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Being that I suffered from a health condition this semester, Mark Perkins was understanding and allowed me to make up participation points by posting my reaction to the material we were reading at the time.
He brought in guest speakers to expose us to the best examples of his subject.
He offers outside time to help students with papers. He makes sure students know his office hours and even takes time in class to go over assignments.
Mark Perkins is a very good listener and he encourages us to think critically and to achieve our highest potential.
informational high-way of interesting ideas, and historicalʻs.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I loved the fact that he took the time to get in touch with guest speakers and invited them to speak to our class so that we could get a better understanding of the material that we were studying at the time.
Mark could have used outlines to help us complete projects, than to just "do a paper"
