29. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
i loved learning a new art but i had a hard time understanding the teacher and the way he taught. he wasn't very clear when he explained the assignments which made it confusing when turning things in.
Instructor shows the willingness to get to know his students. This is one of the best classes I have taken because of the time students get to share with each other doing class work. Rarely do I enjoy going to a class but this class is a lot different that others. This class gives students the opportunity to share thoughts and feelings in a safe enviornment.
I disliked the teacher because for some reason I felt he has something against me the entire semester. It felt as if everyones peace was good for him in a way but when it came to mine it was always something that wasn't right. He had no idea what I deal with outside of class but assumes he knows me so well. He didn't seem considerate and it may have been just me but I felt offended a lot of the time. I came to appreciate ceramics but if I had a different teacher I feel I would've done a lot better!
i didn't like how when you catch him on a bad day and you're not doing what he doesn't like, he drops your grade.
he let us take our time.
I like how we got to be creative and how he let us do what we wanted to do
he was very firm with the guidlines in the syllabus.
While the instructor is well-versd in thier subject on multiple occasion when giving a simple lecture,the instructor would move into subjects which have no inclination towards the main subject.Leading to overly lengthened speechs on subject matter which is both inappropriate and disturbing.However when it comes time for hands-on work the instructor gives clear instruction as to what to do.How to accomplish certain assignments,and gives clear advice on how to improve or solve a project or design flaw.
i didn't like this instructor because he was a very grouchy man. if i got confused on something he'd only tell me your not reading your book and practically making me feel very stupid. he said a lot of comments that were inappropriate. he also threw away a lot of art wok that belonged to the students. his reason was that they weren't up to his standards. i thought that was wrong because if students purchase the clay he has no right to throw it away because the clay doesn't belong to him anymore.
30. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Nash is a cool and down to earth instructor. Not afraid to show or say how he feels which more teachers need to know that students will feel more comfortable to ask questions and share outside thougths and feeling. You're not able to do that in many other classes.
Before you judge someone just by what you see, get to know what kind of person they really are before you critzise them wrongfully. I may not be the best student but I try my best to get alond with everyone. For some reason it didn't feel the same with you! you offended me a couple times where I could've blew up in your face but I chose not to! For someone who didn't do well in their high school your pretty viscious when it comes to doing school work. In all my years of school you are the only teacher I felt offended and made me want to distroy everything you've done just so you understand how I feel! thanks again! good luck with life!
nash is cool
he's a great insructor...
he came to every class on time and expected the students to do the same.
Overall the instructor deeply understands the physics and aesthetics of the subject.
because of this experience i'd never like to take a ceramics class again.
31. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes
maybe but i would promote the art itself more than the teacher.
Yes. First and only class I realy enjoyed since the two and a half years I have been here.
personaly I wouldn't because of the bad experience I've had with him but hey you gotta do what you gotta do.
ya. hes cool.
i would. cause he's a cool guy and he teaches well
yes, he is a very good instructor. He lets you know in advanced if we are not doing so well in class and he allows us time to do extra credit.
I will say yes however,I believe only SERIOUS students should take this class.People who are going to take it simply for a humanities class grade,should be aware that the instructor does not tolerate any form of rampant or lackadasical behavior.People who enjoy skipping days,or leaving classes early should not take this class.
no, he doesn't show the students any type of privacy or respect. he reads the grades out loud so everyone can hear them. he yells at students in front of everyone. he's mean to his ceramic helpers. very rude, i believe no one should experience him unless he favors you then you'll love his class.
