19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
I wouldn't change a thing.
The teacher is a really fun teacher but she has to let the students who are presenting present. she talks alot and the people presenting does not have time to actually present although what she talks about mainly covers what the students are presneting about.
I wouldn't change anything.
I couldn't have done a better job.
I would have love to do more community activities and help out our people, but it was a great class and we did do some community events.
a)Have in class speakers. b)Nothing
There is nothing about this class that I would change. I loved everything about it and I only wish I could take it every semester just for the sake of feeling good about myself!
I don't know what I'm going improve in this class, because she made it fun and entertaining. I would change this: If there are other 18 year olds in her class, I would plan a day or two for only the 18 year olds to speak, and the adults who are older from 20+ are not to say anything that day. I would make a day for only the "teen" students to talk.
not have such long classes.
nothing everything was great
I would remove Noellie Rodrigues from this course as she confuses me. I only understand when Claudia steps in and says something to the matter.
Because this was a learning community class I had SOC 100 along with it. I felt that I did not have enough instruction in the Human Development part of the learning community and it was dominated by SOC 100.
claudia knows her subject very well and does a great job teaching it. i would not change her course.
nothing.
She didnt hardly teach us anything in this class. She needed to actually teach human development and she didnt.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I feel that in her class lectures gives examples of everyday life of each chapters. (she not only gives examples, but allow us to relate our personal experience as well.)
I think it is GREAT.
Claudia is a good teacher and knows the subject matter; well.
wonderful down to earth, makes you feel comfortable.
i think this teacher has wonderful teaching methods. she always has something to say an she always spices up the lecture so that you dont fall asleep. claudia always has something fun planned for the class period. she is a great teacher an i think this class is great. i would reccomend this class to all my friends.
I love claudias teaching methods. She talks to us alot about whats going on in the world and connects it to the chapter reviews that we have to complete.
The Teacher and her teaching methods were very fun, entertaining, and full of understanding.
I love Claudia and her way of teaching. She is my sister, my aunty, my best friend, and my mother when I need to hear it. She has a welcoming way of making a student feel accepted..flaws and all. I liked that alot.We learned alot about family so definitely a warm classromm atmosphere helped.
I think her teaching methods are awesome, because in class all the discussions we were having I was puting myself in the other persons shoes, or some discussions were somewhat related to my situations. The class was fun and there were a lot of opinions spoken in the class too. I loved it, and I felt good.
the intsructor was often late and unprepared for class. Instructor also often talked about things not pertaining to class. Class time management could improve.
i like the talk story and the openness but just having a 3hr class is very long.
Every effective. in all her lessons, she provides more than adequate information to draw upon for tests and kept it interesting and enjoyable. Also, some of the topics that were disscussed in class were heavy topics that i had little or no expirence or information of. Because of this, I really liked that fact that she allow group work and disscussions. It helped me in understanding the topics in a different perspective besides the book.
The teaching methods that Claudia used were very entertaining and was never boring.
awsome very entertaining
I absolutely enjoyed claudia I think she is a wonderful teacher and a motivator. I would absolutely take more courses from her.
I LOVED THIS COURSE AND MY INSTRUCTOR
claudia is engaging and her class is never boring, discussions are very well facilitated and interesting.
she is great,funny and well prepared.
HEr methods were good when she was teaching.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Claudia's class gave me knowledge of how to deal with everyday life, and how we can better ourselves an others around us.
Kind of.
Yes she has.
yes, because i have leanred so much by the texts and by experiences and i will use to live, breath and also make a living. Taking this class was a terrific idea because she is the best teacher.
Yes
Yes, I am so much aware of the community and much more aware of my family. I think of many things now that I never did before and I want to be a better person overall. I try to encourage others in my circle of friends to communicate and be more productive in our lives and that of our families..I feel I am a stronger woman for it.
She has contributed to my general knowledge and my lerning job skills. For my general knowledge I was able to understand all the discussions and situations that were being given. I took notes as other students were saying their opinions, and whatever I felt was important to me, I wrote it down for me to understand more about. For learning job skills, I learned that if you are a quiet person and you don't want to speak your mind, then nothing is going to get done if you don't open your mouth and say what needs to be said. To talk and to get the point across, is what's important.
in some ways.
Yes! I think this is one of the most important classes that i have take so far just because it focused on how to shape the lifestyle that i want. I know for a fact that i will be drawing information for this class in the future. I plan to major in psychology and i think this class really supplemented my studies.
yes alot
Yes she has and I would totally turn to her as a mentor in the world outside of UH system.
Claudia is very knowledgeable in this subject
yes
yes
some what but she didnt teach me anything that i couldnt have learned by just opening up the book.
22. Other comments:
Claudia is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed every moment of her classroom sessions.
Awesome teacher! i love her ways of teaching by having teacher and class discussions. In my opinion, i think everyone should take FAMR from aunty claudia because she is a great teacher and she connects to us by experiences.
I really enjoy Claudia as a professor. She is very informative and comes across in a very local and warming way that makes education fun and for me, I want to learn more. I have had 2 classes with her and I hope to have another one because I know the learning environment will be a positive one...
She is an awesome teacher, and she makes the class really fun and there is a lot of entertainment in this class. I love it.
..............
THIS CLASS WAS NEVER BORING!!! I should of signed up for the T/R classes because it was unfortunate that I only had this class once a week. I always looked forward to this class.
i learned nothing about human development. i payed 85$ for the book and used it once.
very hilarious
I think her teaching was very poor in this class. i signed up for the class because i need human development for my degree. i can tell you that she has only taught us 4 classes where it was about human development. I am not happy with the results of this class because i will not be able to retake the class over and i have learned nothing more than i already knew before going into the class. I feel that it was a waste of my time. She also is very slow at giving back our test results it is 3 weeks till the end of the semester and we still dont have our midterm results back. I would never take a class form Claudia again.
