Lectures need to be recorded again. Some had sections that would cut out halfway through an explanation, pause for a second, and then continue on to a new subject. Didn't like the substitute for the lectures. He does not explain the material in great detail.
It's pretty hard to rate an online class when there's no physical interaction between the instructor and students. I'm sure students would benefit more from an actual class rather than distance learning. It's not the instructors fault though! I should have registered for an on-campus class rather than wait the last minute.

For the most part the quizzes do facilitate the reading. The only thing is I know the discussion boards are to make us think of more medical terms in our field the only thing is it is hard to find these terms when we have know idea what they mean and how to pronounce them . I feel that I would be better to keep the medical terms form the book because I feel that that is what the class is all about. Otherwise good class i learned a lot of new terms

The lectures are fast and dense thus its not very easily absorbed. Please slow down. The best A&P in the UH CC system!
He made this class understandable even though it's really challenging. He is very fair and always makes time for questions. He answers them thoroughly, too.
Shout out to Matthew Maneha, Christian won and fin
Genius. You are the man Dr. Langston! I want to take all my classes with you.
Professor Langston is a great teacher. He is very knowledgeable about the information he's teaching and explains it in a way that students can understand and learn the material. He makes class fun with his humor, and does a good job at making students feel comfortable with asking questions or coming to him with any concerns.
Professor Langston is a great instructor, Glad I got to be in his class this semester.
Overall strong course but well worth it. Langston knows his subject and makes the class interesting and fun while your learning with his jokes

The organization of the material is sometimes difficult to keep straight. It may be because it is abundant. Recommend putting it into a copied manual for sale at the bookstore, as well as Laulima.
This class was very helpful in learning human anatomy and physiology because we got to see the body in person rather than looking at them in a book. I loved that it was hands on. The other Zoology class I took barely had any hands on time. This class was fun.
i loved my lab this semester. The small ratio of students made it easier for professor Langston to answer all of our questions and we got to learn the material a lot better this way.

This survey is kind of moot point since there was no face-to-face interaction with the professor. Langston did communicate any changes or vital course information via email and announcements on Laulima. Since he did not actually teach the content, I cannot accurately rate his teaching.
Great course! Even though taking the class was hard to keep focused at all times around my work schedule, I really enjoyed this one and would gladly take another with Professor Langston. Thank You!!

No complaints good class

This is the first online class that I have taken. I highly appreciate the flexibility of the course, and enjoyed the video lectures. I liked how well it went hand in hand with my ANSC 142/ANSC 142L classes.
Professor rarely responds to email. I understand he has many students, but he should be able to provide extra help to students seeking it. He is very smart and sometimes makes the online lectures funny. I fall asleep during Mr. Longneckers lectures. I this this class was difficult and definitely worth more than 1 credit!!

Ross Langston gave excellent lectures and creative assignments that allowed me to apply my knowledge and learn from others. Even though this was an online class, the way we had to present our discussion boards allowed me to fit names with faces for the people in my class. I also found that Langston was quick to answer emails when I had questions about the assignments.
Perhaps break up the chapters just a little more and throw in one more exam so there aren't between six and eight chapters on an exam.
It is hard to get a reply from him via email.
I liked that I could complete things ahead of time and get the entire class done before the actual due dates so that I could focus on other classes. I also liked that I could retake quizzes multiple times to both learn more and get higher scores.
Ross Langston is a good teacher but what he lacks is communication! I have tried asking questions about the quizzes and comments about how I got the answers for discussions and he may reply once but then he wont reply again after I have left another message. I have no idea why but he just doesnt. I have heard another student complaining about him not replying back to her emails. They were complaints but explanations.
This was a online class and I enjoyed the whole process. It was a very thorough way to learn terms. I liked that it was a step ahead of my animal science classes. I liked that we were given time to take the test earlier if we wanted and wished I took advantage of that more. I like the discussion boards too. We got to learn along side our class mates. I learned how to download onto youtube which I dont know when I will do this again but learning to use youtube as a resource was a good idea. Enjoyed this class.
This online class was helpful. The discussion boards were a great way to force students to use their knowledge of word roots and meanings. The tests and exams were geared towards the textbook material.

I was incredibly disappointed with this class. Dr. Langston was not prepared, course materials were posted late, he seemed to be making it up as he went along, he did not respond to questions posted in the section specifically labeled "Questions", did not monitor or encourage discussion in the course discussion area, and did not even respond to private messages through Laulima. The quizzes seemed to have little to do with the (incredibly boring) lectures, and the exams were completely unrelated to the quizzes. Quizzes should reinforce learning. The discussion assignments were boring & unrelated to the class. We had to write a paper on our future career goals (give me a break--I'm already on track with this) and produce a video study guide. More appropriate discussion questions would have been related to course material, and would have encouraged us to dig a little deeper according to our areas of interest (for example, encourage nursing students to write a paper/do research/present on a nursing topic, or have dental students focus on a dental topic).
This is a challenging course.
Talk about brain stimulation. This course was very difficult for me. I am still trying to find the best way to store all the information that I read. I imagine that taking the lab with the course makes understanding the material better, so I am registering next semester for the lab with lecture. I hope that by doing that, I will do a lot better next semester.
I think his tests are extremely hard and in our study guides he asks us to know everything basically, and the test does not even cover half of it.
Overall I learned a lot in the course. Although my current grade does not reflect "the perfect student" I feel that this a course that pushes you to understand the content. I think that a little more time on the quizzes would help me feel less pressured about the time restriction. Thank you for a great semester. I look forward to taking the second part of A&P next semester with you. Have a happy and safe holiday break.

He is a great teacher. It is a hard subject but he provides study material on laulima in advance of a test so we can be able to know what to study for the tests.
Mr. Langston is a great teacher. Anatomy and Physiology is not an easy course and he breaks it down so thoroughly. He's very organized and I loved that his online lectures were available as study resources. He may be one of the best teacher I've had. He encourages learning and stimulates students' interest in the subject matter. Loved having him as a teacher!
Thank you for teaching me in a way thats fun and easy to understand!
Excellent class, excellent teacher. Looking forward to 2nd semester.
Excellent instructor!
Dr. Langston was is a great instructor. He really knows what he is talking about and makes great connections to help it make more sense.
This was probably the most difficult class I have taken here at WCC and was quite intimidated, but I have maintained good grades and I believe it is because Ross Langston is a good teacher. His in class lectures are very informative and interesting with his personal and funny stories he adds in. I think it helps me to remember the material and takes the pressure off. His online lectures and quizes and powerpoints are incredibly useful. I can study them on my own time any time anywhere, very helpful! I would recommend his class and have already to anyone taking anatomy.
the tests are way too long
He really knows his stuff and he makes the class entertaining.

he is a great lecturer
He really makes you learn the stuff, and that will help in the long run.
Langston was a really good teacher. His knowledge of the human body blew my mind every class lecture. He explained thing very well and would always try to find ways to make it, make more sense and used humor to help us remember things. He was never annoyed by question and always answered to the best of his knowledge.
best teacher ive ever had
Tests covered too much material all at once, too much for the brain to handle when taking multiple other classes. taught very well though.
Ross is a great person. Highly knowledgeable of the subject. Great at lecturing, and teaching students through visual aids. His teachings are very thorough, easy to understand, and his online lectures are very helpful. Tests are bizarre!

Professor Langston uses a variety of blended learning techniques in ZOOL141L making the students responsible for certain learning outcomes and I found this to be a highly effective way to approach such a large volume of information. The oral presentations and research papers also allow students to enhance skills and capabilities they will use beyond the study of science. Professor Langston is extremely patient and goes through the material as many times as students (individually or as a class) need in order to grasp the concepts. The student ages/experience levels in my section spanned several decades but Professor Langston takes this in stride and communicates effectively to all. I have recommended him as an instructor and more than one student I know plans to switch from his/her current lecture or lab professor to Ross Langston next semester.

I thought Ross did a great job of making anatomy come to life by using personal examples as well as leaving time for students to ask questions.
He is a fun but stern instructor and gives students all the tools they need to succeed.
One of my favorite instructors in 4+ years of college. Extremely knowledgeable and fun. I always enjoy coming to his classes and have learned a TON. A+
He's a great lecturer and if his tests are hard, it's because he expects you to learn the things he's teaching so you can be prepared for whatever the next step is. I think he's fair and it's nice he gives extra credit opportunities and easy points for showing up. He also does a good job at keeping things interesting and he usually has the answers to whatever random questions get asked.
A lot of people claim that he's very hard but Langston is finally a teacher from whom you can learn and feel challenged! Thanks a lot Langston for these great 2 semesters!
The availability of online lectures was very helpful for studying for exams.

Great teacher and would recommend to other students
Great 1st Lab experience.
I learned a lot and liked the class. He's a good teacher and knows a lot about his subject and makes the effort to get his students interested.
Ross is a really great professor. He makes sure that you understand what he is teaching and is always available for help.
Super hard exams but not unfairly so. I don't care for lab but Ross makes the time fly, which is helpful.
This class was great! interesting and fun. strongly recommend taking it with this professor.

good teacher.
N/A
I like Ross, but there is one thing that he said one or two days in class and that was, "Some of you should really find another major". A friend and I felt that wasn't necessary to say and it was really discouraging. I noticed a lot of favortism, and I'm not the type to judge people or complain. Besides that, he's really a nice guy.
I think it would be more informative if we had a group dissection where Ross dissected the cat and everyone watched, and then we go back and do the same thing to our own cat. That way we are better informed on what we are suppose to be doing and looking for instead of waiting around until we can ask questions. Also, I think there should be more online quizzes as well as in class quizzes. The online ones help me as a study guide before the in class quiz. It also helps boost our grade.
Professor Langston is a very friendly and amusing professor. Even if the subject matter is boring and bland, he'll make it interesting somehow.

He isn't boring with his powerpoints, knows the answers to random questions people ask, and likes his subject. If you don't do well on the exams you're screwed, but besides that, I think it's a great class. He's a really good teacher and I'll be taking him next semester :)
Ross Langston is amazing teacher I love how he teaches the material so that we understand it the best to our knowledge. The only negative is that his test are crazy hard its so much material to remember
Ross Langston knows his material well, even though some of the material is incorrect and needs to be fixed or updated. The only suggestion I have is that to prepare students better in the classroom and for exams is to occasionally have quizzes on the chapters learned. Just reading and listening to the subjects may not fully be retained. I understand the student needs to put a lot of study time on the side, but I feel like I would retain it if I took the class again next semester when available.
Great teacher willing to help outside of class and tries to give funny and common examples to relate to the topic learning.
I learned a lot from this class and I am happy that I took his class even though he has very high expectations. I think he is a great preparation for the nursing program.
very smart teacher! knows his subject well.
Great lecturer, learned alot, uses class time well, provides good examples.
Being more specific about extra credit opportunities.
One of my favorite professors I've ever had. Windward community college is very fortunate to have such a great person and instructor on staff.
Ross Langston is greatly suited for his role as an instructor for this class. He is a good teacher and knows the material. He meets the challenge of transmitting the large amount of NEW and complex material in a relatively short span of time.
he was a great teacher! definitly learn alot! very helpful!
He knows his stuff and is good at putting difficult terms into easy to remember terms. It also helps that he is funny so if you remember his stories... Mostly the clumsy ones... You will remember the information related.

More/better access to A&P revealed since some of the quizzes used the photos. I know we used it in class but maybe it would be helpful to use the lab manual for A&P revealed.

ross langston has definitely been one of my favorite instructors. all the students love him. he's entertaining and he knows his subject well. he makes class interesting. i will never forget him as one of my favorite teachers. i learned a lot in this course.
Dr. Langston is really funny and really knows his material. His course is set up very nicely with online resources like lecture power point slides readily available and study guides. It is definitely a pretty serious course with a lot of information and studying but Ross does a good job of making it interesting and relevant.
I wish this professor could be the teacher in every class I take. He is present and accountable with every lesson and brings a sense of excitement to learn that is rare to see.
Ross is a great and informative instructor. His classes and esams are very hard, but he is a great teacher and makes his classes fun and interesting.
Ross is very good at allowing students to ask questions and he gives great real life examples of how the lessons will be used in our future professions. I think that his test are very hard, but really prove who is cut out for nursing or whatever field that people are trying to get into. I've heard that his class is a make or break class and I believe that is very true. The only real problem that I have with the class is that the text book is so damn expensive and I've only opened it up once or twice. But other than that, I really enjoy the class.
none
The tests are difficult and long. Its hard to remember so much information. The test should either be shortened or distributed to make it less overwhelming. Or, make the study guides more focused, they are of no help. It might as well just say re-read the chapter. Offer other ways to help remember. Its just a lot of information.

Oops. In my Zool 142 survey I believe I clicked on all the Strongly Disagrees...but clearly I meant Strongly Agrees. Sorry Dr. Ross. Hope there is not ramifications for my faux pas! You da best.
I think that Ross is a really good teacher. Although is is really tough on grading, and the lab reports are crazy difficult, I think that he does a great job teaching the students. He interacts with his students and makes the lab fun and educational. I really enjoy the way he sets up the practicum.
The tests are really hard and the study guides are not helpful. Narrowing down what to study would really help since it's so much information. Its crazy for a teacher to have a student remember so much in such a little amount of time.
Ross is great with his lab classes. He makes it fun and interesting, definately more enjoyable. I enjoyed the hands on of lab and found it so much easier to learn and understand the body, organs, and their functions. Thanks for the fun Ross! Have a great summer!
Dr. Langston is really funny and really knows his material. His course is challenging by nature but he does a great job of making it enjoyable and relevant to learn.
For three years I've been working on prerequisites and this is the first class that I've been engaged, challenged, and actually taught by someone who knows his material, guides his students firmly through the lab activities, is able to confidently answer questions or prompt us to answer for ourselves. Ross Langston is a real teacher, taking time to explain subject matter in a way that we really understood. He takes a difficult subject and tells us "stories" about things so that they stick in our minds. Instead of just spewing facts and expecting us to regurgitate, Prof. Langston gets us to understand the material and how it relates to things around us and things we already understand so we can grasp the information and retain it, and not just briefly memorize it to spit out and pass a test requirement. I looked forward to classes and I believe if I had taken the lecture from him I would have done much better. Mahalo nui loa.
Ross is a good teacher, yet he expects a lot of his students. Some of the tests and practicums seemed overly rigorous. Admittedly the things he drills into the students are very realistic tools for the medical field. I still feel that some of those things would have been better known later into the field, such as the histology, but one cannot dispute that the knowledge is valuable.

overall great teacher, well knowledge in the subject he is teaching, gives good examples of material, helps answer any questions students have.
Ross is a great instructor and is very knowledgable and he makes zoology interesting. His tests are extremely hard (too hard) and his expectations high.
Mr. Langston made learning fun and interesting.
Some of his lectures are not that easy, when he explains things, its not always easy to follow. He's very knowlegable but most of us taking this class have never heard of some of the words and verbage that he uses. In lab, explination on how to clearly do things would be helpful. For the most part, Ross rushes through most of the material leaving one feeling almost lost as to what we need to do. For the slide of tissue, it would be good to describe how to identify tissue and how to tell what sample is which. I think that because he's been teaching these subjects and examples for a while, he forgets that for some of us, it's brand new so slowing down to give a little more detail would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for being awesome! We need good teachers!
Ross is a good teacher, but he isn't always organized. He is late sometimes, but always has his lesson prepared.
Looking forwards for next semester ! (:
eVERYTHING IS SO FAST PASTE ALSO WOULD OF PREFERRED A WORD BANK ON QUIZZES AND EXAMS
Ross Langston makes inappropriate and condescending comments about his students when we can't answer a question he says thIngs like "oh my god, you're going to be my nurses one day, I'm scared." He is always 5-10 minutes late for class. He often gets into conversations with students that started about material we were covering but ended up being a total waste of time and way off track for everyone except the person he was talking to. He doesn't follow his own rules regarding test make ups in his syllabus and therefor I am set back an entire semester because he "has the right to do that as a professor" according to the vice chancellor of student affairs. I will never take another class from him and if I can help it neither will any of my friends. Totally unprofessional. You should not teach if you aren't concerned with the success of your students. Also, study guides for tests and what is actually on the test are two totally different things. Useless.

The lectures are easy, Ross is very knowlegeable but his quizzes and tests are extremely difficult. Had i known it was this hard, i would have made sure that i only take his class for the semester. The quizzes and tests study guides were of no help because there was no true "focus". He might as well have just said "study all the chapters" Its a lot to remember. Maybe if he did weekly tests instead of trying to jam 5 - 10 chapters in one quiz. Ross is a no nonsense kind of teacher, it would be easier on some the students if he displayed a little compassion for those of us who have children and other obligations outside of the classroom. Overall, he's a good teacher with an almost goofy personality.
Mr. Langston is great and passionate with his subject.
there goes my GPA.
Ross is a good teacher. It is interesting how he relates everything to fish, although it is a little weird. He takes the time to help the students. The weekly quizzes aren't always fair because they seem to have things that we didn't talk about in class. But the practicum was well organized and fairly graded. He tends to be tardy, but makes up for it. He makes the experiments as fun as possible.
Thanks! You'r a great teacher, good humor keeps the subject interesting! :)
Too much work for a one credit course!!...he gives out more work than he can handle grading. It takes forever to get things back from him. His lecture class is great, but his lab is the complete opposite. Some lab days are a waste of time in my schedule.
Sometimes deadlines were unclear and how to prepare for quiz's were unclear as well. He was willing to be flexible where overall grades are concerned.

He has good lecture lessons that you can follow along with. I like how he has study guides for each midterm. I also think that the reviews before the midterms should be spent more time on because it really makes a difference when it comes time to take the midterm. I think that his grading system is unfair becuase he only grades you on midterms. So if your a student like I am that's not good at taking test then it just set up for you to fail the class. This I feel isnt fair and there should maybe be other assignments like homework or quizzes throughout the semester to give students the chance to pass the class. Even though extra credit assignments are given it doesnt really help if all your grade depends on is midterms, and final.
While this class covered a lot of material, Dr. Langston was always open to students asking questions and did his best to explain the answer in terms that each student could understand. I gained knowledge that will carry forward and aid to my medical career.
Professor Langston knows his subject very well. His class is a comfortable setting for learning, and not so up-tight like some of my previous classes. I don't feel like I always need to know the right answer. If I'm confused I can always rely on him to repeat what I need to hear. I understand why he got the Excellence in Teaching Award, he's awesome at what he does. One of the great teachers at WCC.
A lot of the stuff that were on the test weren't covered in the provided notes. Even when you filled in blank spaces in the notes. No homework was given which made studying a lot harder. other than that, it was a good class.
This was a great class and I learned a lot from this class.
He is very knowledgeable about Biology and wants us to succeed.
4x6 index card for exams is better
He know's his subject well, includes stories and examples to support illustrations shown in class, overall he's your average biology teacher, just a little more interesting.
Wish I didn't take this class.
The sound effects that he incorporates into his lectures were integral to my learning.
He gives interesting experiences from his life to explain complex concepts. It can be very helpful and allows students to fully grasp concepts.
Prof. Langston is an outstanding teacher. The combination of classroom lectures, and resources he provided on Laulima, covered the subject-matter so thoroughly, I had no reason to seek his counsel outside of class. Very professional.

I and other students have found the exams to be very difficult inspite of the fact that we are well studied before the exam. It would be helpful if the exams were more like the rodeos which are clearer to understand. It would also be helpful if we had a review before each exam. Ross is very clear in his teaching and very knowledgeable in his subject. He does a great job and his classes are very informative and enjoyable. Perhaps the Science Department could provide a tutor for extra help.
He knows the subject is hard to learn, he knows that the semester grade is based on 3 test. he can tell who studies and who doesn't. he works hard to make sure we are learning the material. he is trying to prepare the students signing up for his class to become Nurses ,Radiologist, Vet's etc.
I love Ross. He's awesome. He makes things to sound so easy in class. He's very patient with us in class. He has time whenever we ask for help. I wrote some things about Ross on the lab survey so I'm just gonna say, thank you so much Ross for all your help with everything. Science was never ever my best subject no matter how much I tried to say i love it. I'm just more of an hands on learning type of person for science. What freaks me out is that, I'm getting an A in chemistry but not sure of my grade for science. go figure. Anyway, thank you again. Hope to see you around. melissa keohokapu
He's a awesome teacher, that explains that teaches his subject very well.
crammed waaaaaay too much materials on one exam! a lot to study for one exam should do more smaller exams instead of three hudge exams!
With so much material to cover the exams should cover fewer chapters so students can really spend time learning them rather than just trying to cram and memorize3.
I thought his exams were a little intense, wish he stuck to his study guides.

fun class. challenging at times but learned a lot from it.
i have already highly recommended him to those who needs to take Zoology 141 and 142.
I really haved enjoyed the lab and I have learned alot but I find the amount of work overwhelming. The information to study given to us for the practicums I feel are to broad and could be narrowed down. It takes countless hours to answer all the questions and then to study them. Especially for a one credit course. Also the lab reports take up to eight hours to do. I am not a complainer but I do feel that it is the work of a 3 credit course vs 1. Inspite of all that it has been very informative. Ross is an excellent instructor and is an asset to W.C.C.
class should be writting intensive or getr more than one credit. this class is a lot of work!
excellent!!!
He is a great teacher. the subject he teaches is a difficult one for student to pick up and learn but he made the experience memorable. i recommend this teacher
Thank you Ross for always helping us out with our questions and concerns. Thank you for your knowledge and smartness in Anatomy lecture. I think that this semester was a little more challenging than last semester. To be truly truly honest with you, science was never my best subject. But I've been telling myself how much I love science, I love science, I love science....but I never get the A's that I want. I study and study and study. If we could do verbal exams, I think I would get A's, no problem.. I'm more of a hands on type of person. I do read my book. I do study, but I don't know whats wrong with me. Anyway, just wanted to say, you're awesome and I'm currently recruiting people to attend your class. Thank you again for your time.. melissa Keohokapu

Great instructor!!!
He sometimes does not give ever student a chance to absorb the material he is teaching. Also, his study guides include more material than what he actually taught in the lectures. I had to use Google.com a lot when studying them.
He gives really good examples from his past experiences and gives humor to the class with voice imitations. Also has a nice loud voice during lecture because I doesn't make me fall asleep.
He was a very good overall teacher and i enjoyed being in both his classes. He had a good sense of humor which made his classes enjoyable to be in.
I understand that there is a lot of material to get through in this class. Which is why I think it would be better if there were exams more often, maybe every to chapters instead of 4 or 5. There was so much material to go through to study for the exams that I would find myself flustered and overwhelmed. Also, I think it would help to have hw assignments to help retain the information. There is just so much to memorise! As much as I enjoyed this class I really had a hard time with it. However, Prof. Langston is extremely knowledgeable regarding the subject and does a good job at giving examples to break down concepts.
Great teacher but has a hard time trying to explain all the material in the time he is given for class. he tries his hardest to but there seems to be to much information that needs to be learned. Or some of the information we are expected top have already known.
I forgot to add in the survey for the lab class that I loved lab class. Ross is great in that class. He is always willing to come around and help us with procedures or pointing out anatomical structures--whether he's wearing gloves or not. The lecture class was great too. Over all, good job and good teacher.
Ross is a good instructor who understands how to convey information and content of the course
None
Anatomy and Physiology courses cover lots of detailed and complicated material--there isn't time in one semester to get it all done. We had to leave out some subjects that I would have found interesting. My only complaint about Ross was a failure to follow through on exams. We learn from our mistakes and like to pat ourselves on the back for those things we do right. Again, I think time was a factor. All-in-all, I think Ross is an exceptional educator; knows his stuff and connects very well with his students. Thank you, Ross, for an interesting and informative semester.

Too much material, too little time. Ross's teaching abilites were apparent from day one. Although at times I felt the lab was a little disorganized, I never doubted his command of the subject. More follow-through on exams would be nice.
Overall the class was definitely educational. However I feel that there is room for improvement; such as, the class time could use some more direction and structure. Maybe correlate the lab book to what we are doing in class. Maybe have directions on the board for what disection is regarding for the day, along with the verbal ones. I just felt kind of lost at times. I did learn a lot though.
Dr. Langston is a good teacher who knows a lot about bodily systems. He keeps lectures insteresting by using examples from real life or using everyday objects to illustrate more complex ideas. My only suggestion is that he learn more about anatomy and physiology that specifically pertain to animals. Humans and animals are very similar, but sometimes he can't answer questions that we ask him about animals. He is more knowledgable about humans and fish. I know he realizes this because he honestly and humbly tell us that he doesn't know some answers to our questions. The field trips and guest speakers are great though!

He is a very quick instructor. I feel as if the material he teaches is foreign to me although I already took an anatomy and physiology class. He doesn't do a very good job teaching material on a level that is understandable to students. He's very smart and he knows his stuff but he doesn't present it in a way that I could understand. His exams are also extremely hard and he doesn't show any consideration towards his students for the test. I compared langston's exam with bernauer and langston's exams seemed like a test that would be given at a 300 level course.
Mr. Langston is a very great instructor. He gives great examples of the material so that it is easy to understand. I really like that.
Great Professor! ZOOL is a tough class but because he makes it fun and interesting it is possible to do very well in his class!
Ross is a very good teacher. Knows his material and teaches us in a very organized manner. Has a syllubus on the first day and follows it , which is very important for students to plan.. Very helpful teacher! If i were grading him on teaching skills-- I'd give him an "A"!
So glad he teaches Zoology 141. He is very clear in explaining the human body. And uses great examples to help us remember terms!@!!!!
Ross Langston is excellent at what he does. He shows a sincere concern for all student and treats them all equally. He is very patient with the students no matter how demanding they are of his time and attention. I have thoroughly enjoyed his class and have and will continue to highly recommend it to other students. He should be commended for going beyond the call and recognized for all that he does and in the manner in which he does it. Happy Holidays.
he's a professional
I feel the exams in his class should be broken down a little more. Instead of 3 exams I think he should have 4 so there wouldn't be so many chapters in one exam.
Ross totally stimulates our brains to critically think of matters and how we as humans are involved with science. To me, the class is very interesting. I got to understand the subject a lot more that I did last year. It is more than just memorizing its knowing why and how. Whenever I had a question and Ross was busy with other students, I would call for him and he acknowledges that he hears me and says, "hold on, I'll be right there." He made sure that he was attentive to every one of his students that called out to him. And that's why I admire his character as a teacher. He is definitely a great professor. He is soft spoken, so I have to ask him to speak up sometimes.... thank you Ross for all your help...thank you for being patient with me. happy holidays melissa keohokapu

I strongly reccomend students to take ZOOL from him!!!
really enjoyed and a&p is not my strong subject
He does a better job at his lab class than lecture. I am able to grasp concepts quickly in lab because he is actually assigning labs that corespond to the text. Although the lecture class is extremely in depth, without the lab course I wouldn't understand more than half of the material presented.
Keep up with your quiz's and you will do good! Great teacher.
Ross has a lot of juggling to do in lab and does it very well. He is strecthed thin in the lab with all the students always needing help yet he completes all tasks with a smile on his face and is very pleasant and patient with each one. I myself have lots of questions and he is always very patient and takes the time to make sure that I understand the material.I appreciate him and feel that he goes way beyond the call. He should be recognized for all his hard work and kindness. He is an asset to the college. Happy Holidays.
I feel instead of 3 exams in this class there should be 4 so that there isn't so many chapters in one exam.
Now this class was fun. I like "hands-on" activities. I can grasp concepts better that sitting in lecture. The only thing that I had a hard time with was my lab reports. Other than that, thank you so much for being patient with me. see you next semester.
Allow extra credit! weekly ten point quizzes suck!!! So much info!

1. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The Professor
disecting
i cut into the chest cavity of dog...thats a little hard to forget
"examining" thecat
the lab dissections
My first cat dissection! And the first time I was actually able to get up close to a horse and learn more about them firsthand. This was also my first class to see an EKG, acquire hands on experience with a microscope, organ models, and learn information like muscles in depth!

I liked the examples he used.
I liked that he knew what he was talking about, that he was fair,and I think it was a plus he's even taking the San Juan college courses for vet techs!
Professor Langston is very approachable. If you have questions, he is more than willing to answer them for you. If you are unsure how to do something, without any hesitation he will stop what he's doing and show you. He truly makes learning fun and interesting for his students, and I really enjoyed having him as an instructor for this course.

Absolutely, he is a fantastic teacher.
yes
yes....he = awesome

Yes.
Yes. I think he's an excellent teacher. He's fun to talk to and he has a lot of experiences to share. He's also very approachable so it's easy to go up to him and ask about things.
Yes. Professor Langston is a knowledgeable instructor. He explains subjects thoroughly and efficiently, and is always willing to help you succeed.

1. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
all
Learning Everything. Some things were new to me and others were a refresher.
having a handbook made by the professor of all slides showed in lecture was very helpful and made it very easy to follow along and take notes.
basically all of it
Everything that we learned about was very valuable in my eyes. It always good to learn about your body and how it works.
Giving examples and doing reviews for the exam.
the whole lecture and notes
The lecture booklet was the most helpful because it helped me to study.
the amount of time
The whole course was valuable. I learned in what semester, what i did in my whole 4 years of high school Science.
Everything!!!
Almost all aspects of the course were valuable.
The specifics of the class were very valuable, though it was a bit difficult to remember all the minute details.
Everything
everything
Learning about the human anatomy
Text book, materials from classes were also on laulima for students use as well. What ever was missed you could always go to laulima and print material.
The stories that related to the subjects we were learning made it easier to remember the material.
I enjoyed the class discussions as well as the note taking format. Plus study guides and review days reall helped.
Having a handout packet to go along with the powerpoint was key. Also Ross can be quite entertaining at times so that helped keep me interested
2. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
none
None
Although i spend a near $200 for the book, i did not flip through it oncw and still passed the class with good grades. i feel like the notes from the lecture was a lot of information and te book was not needed.
none of it
there wasnt anything that i disliked about the course.
N/A
none
I kind of the found out that I spent money on my biology book, and we did not even need it at all pretty much.
the amount of time
I think that everything was valuable, there was nothing that i can say i didnt learn from... everything thing that was thought... someone learned from it if they already didnt know it.
Nothing, everything we went over was very interesting and it was all useful information.
I do not know.
There was little no nothing that was not valueable in this course.
Nothing
Nothing.
Instructor spoke fast went to quick through materials, I being an older student not really understanding did not make it easier on my understanding, until I got a tutor. When told some things of what I was learning was chemistry not biology only confusing me more. When I finally got into understanding and enjoying the class I was set back with health problems forcing me to withdrawl from class.
The fact that the slides from the lectures had some missing in our books.
having to take the class
constant lecturing really doesn't do it for me. Perhaps it's the nature of the subject matter, but I found class time became monotonous quite quickly.
3. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
learning about the human body
When I hear about the body.
the awesome examples Dr.Langston provides. he takes biology and compares it to everday college life situations, making it memorable.
a good teacher
all the things that i have learned.
remembering how the body works; a general idea.
going back to the notes
Ross Langston's willingness to explain all aspects of the material and extensive knowledge of the subject which he teaches.
How my professor Ross Langston used humor alot as way of remembering the material.
all the different experiments
covering soo much information in one semester. :-)
How much work it covered. We went over many things, and it was very intense and challenging, but all worth it.
the stories he told in order to relate the lectures to real life experiences.
The funny comments and analogies used to help teach.
all the info provided
The Instructor
the good teacher i had
The teacher.
The relationship I made with this instructor prior to being his student for we have sat on committees together here on this campus is what I hold dear to me.
The stories about the butcher shop.
incorporating this knowledge into my daily life
Celebrating the 10th year anniversary of filling out this survey! :) perhaps how much I don't like science but I still took a Bio class.

6. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
yes
Well considering that my biology is not my subject and i have passed this course with a breeze, i would say he does an swesome job at teaching...keep doing what your doing!!!
nothing really everything was fine to me
I think he's a great teacher.
Making the textbook readings accurate as well as his slides with the notebook.
Perhaps assignments that related to the lecture
I honestly do not see any room for improvement
Nothing he is an awesome teacher and I plan on taking zoology with him as well.
good job
Slow down, or make the sections shorter for the test. I understand he has to cover everything in the semester, but too much material is covered for a test.
Slow down just a little bit. Other than that everything was fine.
There is so much material to cover that it is hard to understand all of it; if slowing down is an option that would be a good way of improving.
I suppose one way Professor Langston could improve his teaching of this course would be finding a better way for the students to remember the many small details about biology, like amino acids, phospholipids, and the like.
Fine as is
Make sure all the slides are available in the book sold @ the book store.
By making it fun and enjoyable. He used examples from his own life to make it more understandable.
provide more hands-on learning for non-lab students. Try to mix lecturing with other types of teaching.

24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes, he is good at his job
Yes I would... He is a teacher that takes the time to explain everything out to you and if you needed more help on understanding something you could ask him before and after class.
absolutely!!! i've tried to take many science courses at wcc and always seemed to drop the course within weeks. but to stay in the course and pass really says something special about Dr.Langston
yes because he is not boring and give good examples
Yes i would because he clearly explains the material and he is always open to questions that you might have.
If they want a class that is easy to handle, then yes.
Yes, he is easy to follow, doesn't overload on assignments, will help you if you need it
Most definitely. He is able to give examples of daily application of the concepts learned in class enabling students to more easily grasp the material.
Yes, because he keeps the material interesting.
Yes because he is first of all funny, easy to understand, and that he grades on a curve so he he tries his best to give you the highest grade you can receive.
Yes, he is a good teacher
Yes, he makes Biology interesting and fun. He allows you to ask questions and will answer them. As long as you study for your test then you will do great in his class.
Yes most definitely. They will learn a lot and he makes it interesting so it's even better!
Yes I would if they like lecture style teaching.
I would recommend Professor Langston to other students, with the advice to stay on top of the readings, ask plenty of questions for clarification, and study the material on your own.
yes
yes
yes
He's an easy teacher to learn from.
Yes. He's been my most understandable science teacher next to my #1 favorite teacher ever. His course is reasonable and he doesn't ask to much of the students.
If you have to take a biology class i would extremely recommend him. Seeing as biology is not my strong point, he made the class very understandable and he had an immense knowledge of what he was teaching.

1. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The professors attitude
The way the teacher interacts with the students.
The information and cool science
I will definitely remember the urine sampling, dog cadaver, CSI, exercise; those are a few of the more memorable ones. I enjoyed my experience and learning throughout this course.
the pee lab. It was gross.
All of the hands on we got to do!
The labs, especially the urinary lab and fermination lab
the dissections
the labs that we participated in.
the fun activities done in lab
2. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
That a lot of things were hands on even when I didn't have the stomach for it
Learning about health and how to take care of the body
Applicable labs. Although the lab manual isn't the greatest, it was a decent resource for information and had good chapter reviews. I found hands on plastic models of the different parts of bodies we had to memorize especially helpful.
All of the hands on stuff.
All of the course work and the step by step instruction.
using a lab setting to interact with others and get a feel for working in a lab setting- lab book
the hands on experience we get with a lab.
3. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
None
I found least helpful for me was not having taken a bio 100 lecture course with my instructor. That would help the lab portion be a lot smoother. However, conflicting times with work schedules prevented me from taking it last semester. I did appreciate taking the lab with Mr. Langston because I feel as though I took away a lot more memorable information then when I had left my lecture course.
The bookwork. We used it, but it didn't help with much.
nothing
looking in the microscope, had trouble with that.
i liked everything.

unknown
Make sure to consistently write the assignments for the sections in the lab on the board for that day so it is clear what is to be finished, also continuing to offer multi-learning oppurtunities, auditory, visual, hands-on. Much appreciated and more memorable when you are learning through multiple mediums.

1. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
the lecture book and his lecture.
All the powerpoints posted on Laulima
Lecture note book are VERY helpful. They are low cost and the student won't have to use individual home printers and ink! It also allows us to follow along with the lecture easier so we're not focused on writing everything down. The exam study days were helpful. It gave the student a brief idea on where they stood on the information so they'd know how hard they'd need to study.
Wow, I dont believe I can pick just one. It was TONS of information jammed into my head and all equally important. Professor Langston really showed you how wonderful the body is.
i really enjoyed the engaging lectures
The hands on work we were able to to.
The anatomy of the body

the intensity of it and how knowlegeable he was about the subject
That HARD class that i actually learned something from!
Because I think I will have to take it twice
The examples that he uses to describe things, he puts a personal touch on everything. He will give personal experience to describe something.

Easy to approach and willing to help. Also, he's enthusiastic about the topic and encourages students to discuss things in class.

Nothing he is a great teacher that will bend over backwards if he thinks it will help you understand a consept.
Ross does not give much time during his office hours even though I made an appointment to see him. He seem to be always rushing or busy and I get the feeling that I am taking up his time and he is irrated by my emails and me seeing him a lot during his office hours time. His exams is really super hard, and confusing. I think he need to lower his bar a little and keep in mind that the students who is taking Zoology for the first time are beginner, not an expert to know the subject off hand or back of your head.
nothing.
The tests were HARD. I found that I had a hard time studying bc I didnt know what to study. I know I know my stuff, but when it comes to the exams, the way the questions are worded makes you feel like you dont know anything so you are guessing what the answer is.

No changes
Nothing, I liked the lectures the way they were. I liked that they were available on laulima aswell.
Group work, give out extra credits, material or pictures to see what it look like or example. Not from the power points.

Have a copy of the powerpoint slides in the student handouts.

29. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
i liked that he is very knowledgable but wished that his lectures were much more slow sometimes complex ideas are rushed
He was very engaging, it was just hard for the other students to talk above the loud students. they were very intimidating.
The exams were really hard and I wish he taught the class at an earlier time.
He is an excellent teacher who is really knowledgeable and personable.
I liked that he used examples from our everyday lives.
Exam was overly rated and exteremly hard. We should do some group work, or make the material fun to learn; rather than sitting in your chair and listen to him talk about the power points up on the screen, when we already have power point book.
i really like how ross applies what he teaches to real life situations.
I like that he allows students hands on practice in the related material.
I like how he can connect hsi personal stories to what is being talked about. I do not like how the exam questions are worded. Makes me feel dumb, when I know I get the information.
30. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes, i think you would learn alot from him
Yes if they are dedicated to learning the body systems, langston is the best teacher to learn from.
Yes, he is hard but he explains everything really well. You will learn alot.
Yes. He expects a lot from his students so be prepared to learn and know the topics covered. He's thorough in his lectures and very detailed.
Yes, I believe that he is a very detailed teacher and I also feel that I learned so much in this course.
No I would not recommend him to other students. I have heard and known that the other students had failed his class and they have taken him twice and still didn't do well. He is hard and he have very high plan and bar level on students, which he need to lower them a bit. I would never take any subjects from him again. Unless he change his attitude and he have more office time hour to spend with student not just 15 minutes!
yes!!! he is difficult but you will learn a lot from him.
Yes, he makes learning fun and enjoyable.

Ross Langston: ZOOL142L, Spring 2010     Back to top

Campus: Windward Community College Department: Natural Sciences
Course: ZOOL 142L - Human Anatomy & Physio Lab II Crn (Section): 63270 (0)     63271 (0)    
1. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Everything. Basically it puts what you are reading about in lecture into perspective by experiments. It gets you to think in another way.
anatomy was the most valuable part of the course and he really knows his information so he is effective when teaching to others
the hands on lab, the practicums, prof. langston asking questions during lab.
the labds
i believe the disection and hands on labs were most valuable.
Having the AP physiology discs and Mac computers available when necessary were helpful. It illustrated life like models without having to actually dissect something!
being hands on
Hands on learning.
