23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I definitely liked the organization of the course. It was very structured and there was a routine that we got into in terms of lectures, quizzes, and assignment deadlines. I also liked the films we were assigned to watch. They were definitely relevant to the topics were covering at the time.
The interaction with students
I liked the incorporation of documentary films as part of assignments required.
Some aspects of the course that I liked the best were the pre-class videos, the use of power point, and the selected films.
His examples he presented in class made his teaching a lot more understandable
I liked how Mr. O'Neil was very hands-on in class and taught in a very mind stimulating matter.
I liked how Mr. O'Neil made each topic interesting and was able to relate the topic some way or another so that we could understand it.
I liked that the teacher wanted us to pass.
Made discussion interesting. Clear that he wanted us to do well in the class. Can tell he knows his subject. Returns papers and quizzes promptly.
-Learning different theory's of sociologist -hearing different oppinions or giving examples from the class on a subject like global inequality, sexuality and identity, GM not the general motors and discussing it. -Movie days:)watching and learning what people go through dealing with society. -group project. having a group of different race and that i dont even hang out with or not familiar with was really interesting. learning or getting to know each individual memeber with different personality and what they do. we have things in common but just where we come from is different. I love my group. they're cool people even Mr. O'Niel he's cool too:)
The class was very interesting. I looked forward in coming to class every Tuesdays and Thursdays. I had a lot of fun and I believe that I did learns new things.
The part i enjoyed about this course were the parts where we learned about like homeless ness and all those other interesting facts that i was never informed about. such as how milk may not be so great because it may cause some kind of sickness for your body. also about the GM food. where it's fertilized with insecticide chemicals so that if the insects eat them they end up dying. so the chemicals they use to fertilize the fruits may be in your body system and have a great impact on your body.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I didn't really like the essays much. The grading of them was also not really explained so I wasn't sure what to focus on; there was definitely a learning curve in figuring out how to write them in order to get a better score.
The tests
none
There is nothing in particular about this course that I didn't enjoy, but Im just naturally a fan of sitting in class and listening to lectures. I do enjoy visuals like powerpoint and videos.
None
What i liked least was the first couple of test formats, but that was latter cleared up in class.
I felt that the course didnt have enough class discussions and had lots of lectures.
No comment.
none
I think what I don't like is how little time we had. It was my favorite class this Semester.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
positive. I thought the topics discussed in the course are relevant to things we hear about in the media. There was never a dull class; it was probably most fun when we were able to discuss things outside of the powerpoint material and really bring out our thoughts and ideas. It was a pretty comfortable environment and I didn't feel pressure to participate if I didn't want to or uncomfortable when I did have something to say.
Its a great course
The course is a perfect class to take for students starting or getting back into school.
a 9 out of 10. 1 meaning not so good. 10 meaning excellent.
I love this class; I learned a lot and it was fun.
My overall evaluation of this class is that it was very informative and i learned lots from it and I'd refer someone else to take it.
It was an interesting course that I would recommend to others because it taught me a lot of new things and cleared others up for me.
It was great and fun. Very easy to learn the material.
I thought that this class was fun.
Overall good introductory course. Just took it because it fit my schedule but I enjoyed it and I got to take a look and think about some sociological things that I probably wouldn't have outside of this class.
Two thumbs Up:)
It was a fun class and Mr. O'Neil is a great teacher. I never had a dull moment in class.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
There is A LOT of material that is covered throughout the semester. I don't know if this is possible, but maybe focusing on less topics would be more effective in learning the material. There were definitely some topics that were more interesting than others, so maybe more time could be spent on them instead of pushing through the entire book.
The course is actually fine the way it is.
This course could be improved by having a fair balance between having activities in class, lectures, and group discussions. I get tired of sitting class just listening, the information is interesting but I have a difficult time focusing when I get bored just sitting down.
This course in my opinion doesn't need much improving. Mr. O'Neil is doing very well with the techniques and methods he has now. I think this class need very little or no improvement at all.
This course could be improved by students becoming more active in the classroom. Even though Matthew did try to get the class to discuss, sometimes the whole class wouldnt be involved.
I think that the teacher shouldn't be as lenient when it comes to due dates because students took advantage of the fact that he would push papers to a later date.
He can make the class more fun. Maybe more class activities.
27. Other comments:
This was a great class and I highly recommend it to future students.
I liked this class
Material on the six given tests were covered in great detail. No secret or trick questions.
It didn't affect me personally but sometimes he can be a bit sarcastic in a humorous way. Hopefully no one takes it the wrong way.
Will we have surveys every semester? because i hate surveys Im doing this because Mr. O'Niel is a Cool Proffessor:) okay have a great day=)
I don't know what else to say other than I hope the rest of my classes could be this fun.

I would have liked it better if you had posted announcements in laulima over sending emails. That way I always had your notifications in one place.
He is an amazing professor. Took him during the summer and have not regretted adding more of his classes since. Online is just like in class, straight forward and consistent. Doesn't throw any curve balls, the material is set up nicely in his slide shows, the book's are usually boring but he brings them to life when he explains the main points and adds outside sources for us to better relate. Movie choices are not always the best (Capitalism: A Shoot Me In The Face Story) but is overall a great professor. Love to have him around. Also, make him teach more in person, it's a much more enjoyable experience than online. His sarcasm just isn't the same online.
I enjoyed his course, and found the instructor to be insightful.

I really liked your involvement in the beginning of the class in the discussions. It was a little sad when you stopped posting as well.

Really enjoyed the different media Professor O'Neil used throughout the semester, besides the required textbooks. As a student who grasps ideas better visually, the documentaries and videos were an excellent bonus to the course material. Another definite positive, was the way Professor O'Neil was able to produce weekly engaging discussions amongst classmates. The interaction between students and professor really came alive during these exchanges, and made the course interesting and wothwhile. Overall, I would definitely take another course with Professor O'Neil, if it became available.
I really enjoyed this class. Everything about it was interesting and I really learned a lot.All the information I learned in this class will help me in the future.
I really appreciate how you were very willing to help each student out, and accommodate the learning preference they had. You were very quick to respond. You were open to taking suggestions anyone had on how we could get THE MOST out of the class, and I value that greatly. This class was designed to hit each learning strategy and accommodate all students. Great class with a lot of information that is are valuable for life long lessons! Great material (books, films, "youtube" and text) to refer to. LOVED THE BOOK "TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE"... its a MUST read for everyone! Every assignment and piece of material we were assigned complimented each other! Overall it seems a lot of time and effort went into putting this class together and it defiantly showed and is appreciated!
He was the best online teacher, I have ever had and I am very fortunate to have taken his class. I learned more about myself, during this class than any other UH Manoa class I have taken in the past. I use to think HCC offered me better learning opportunities, until I had Professor O'Neil as a professor. I am very happy to have choose this class as my summer course. I look forward to taking more of his classes in the future. He was both helpful and very knowledgeable about the subject. By far the best instruction I have ever experienced both online and in person.
Online classes are a little challenging for me, but Mr. O'Neil did a good job in this one! I knew what was going on 99% of the time.

I stronger understanding of other cultures different from my own. Appreciation for other views and respect for differing ideas.
better understanding on race and ethnicity
How people feel about certain subjects in there lives and how my ancestors where treated.
I think we all benefited from this class in the sense that we taught each other hands on what society thinks. We all gave our personal perspectives on topics and learned to question why we thought that way.
knowledge of different races and relations to each other,marvelous..
I learned a lot about what goes on in society in this class. This class gave me a deeper understanding to how far race and ethics has come in the US.
about the social problems with race and ethinicity
i have a new way of looking at race relations and i learned a lot about history that i didn't know, so that really helps when understanding other cultures.
A better understanding of race & ethnic relations (intergroup and intragroup).
