it helped me understand the different stages in life
The assignments were easy
the power points
I took psychology in high school, so I knew some of the materials already. But she taught me even more than what I already knew, and many interesting things about how psychology actually works.
It opened up my mind to these new ideas and thoughts from the class. It had me evaluate my life and figure out what i need to do to avoid or move towards certain things. This was a class that would be helpful throughout my life.
learning new information about the stages of life from fetus to death

learning how the brain works when its is first developing thoughts. The stages it goes through with choices between good or bad.
great testing!
The power points being available to view online was something that was very helpful in this course.
I learned a lot and the course wasn't too strenuous to the point where it was interfering with my other classes. All the tests were online and I like that we could re take it until we got all correct. I learned more when I figured out the right answer. The assignments were very entertaining and not boring.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
What I found valuable and helpful about the course was, knowing the different ways we think as humans from being a child, adolescent, and adult.
I loved the lecture slides, it was very helpful to me to have it available ahead of time to print and follow along in class.
The powerpoint presentations were very helpful in understanding the course materials.
Her well put together presentations and power-points.
I found it most helpful when she does her lectures and gives examples as to what she's teaching. Makes it more understandable and easy to learn.
Understanding the development of children.
The fact that the notes and powerpoint was sent to me every week so I was ready to go when it came to class.She also made things very easy to understand by explaining with relative examples.
The fact that if your teacher can pick interesting facts out to teach you rather than lecturing on the whole class, you learn more.
The powerpoints are very helpful to grasp the course material. Material is well presented.
I learned a lot more information about the things I didn't know and made me understand the things that I did.
This course really opens our minds to the science of Psychology. It's very interesting and informational. I'm happy to say that the knowledge that I have gained from this course has educated me in ways that I can share with others.
I am Blessed, this instructor Dr. L. Haack has open my eyes to greater understandings in life and the compassion to take in each breath of being more aware of the lives of others and the steps to take into with greater wisdom. I really do appreciate and am thankful to know my instructor.
Teacher was very personable and helpful.
This course was very helpful because Mrs. Haack focused on the topic very well using power points. she was very knowledgable about the topic and questions we asked.
What I found most valuable and helpful about this course was the amount of information I learned in such a short periods of time.

Mrs. Haack is a very kind and organized teacher, and she presents herself very well when she teaches the class.

Her teaching style is excellent. She is clear and maintains the class' interest with examples and anecdotes.
She likes to make the class laugh and make them enjoy being in her class. She uses personal examples as well as examples outside to demonstrate our current discussions.
Dr. Laura has a unique style of teaching which is easy to comprehend and easy to be interested in. Dr. Laura has an enormous background of knowledge which is very beneficial when she teaches our Psychology course. It's easier to embrace what we learn when our teacher knows what shes talking about and gives us real examples to back it up.
She's extremely understanding and her heart is complete with compassion. Always there to answer questions or even to listen to what is important. I strongly refer to anyone that Dr. L. Haack is the BEST.
I liked how she related things from the text into personal experiences.
Laura Haack is a very good teacher, she gives an opportunity for a student to catch up on all the assignments and test.
The professor was very knowledgeable and her teaching style was very engaging.

Loved this class! Professor Haack has such an interesting way of teaching!
Enjoyed her class overall.
One of my favorite Professor's, kind and funny.
When I'm about to take a test/exam for Mrs. Haack's class, I do it with confidence in knowing I will do good because her style of teaching just shows that she wants her students to learn in the best way possible, stress free.
It was a interesting course. I learned a lot!
Professor Haack is an excellent teacher and makes class fun for everyone. She creates an environment that establishes a comfortable atmosphere.
I enjoy taking Lauras class. Also, the way she structures her class, if you miss a class you dont have to freak out about what you missed because her lesson will be posted online shortly after. This semester was a rough one for me but being that Laura Haack makes good use of the internet for communication, it still makes it possible to keep up with the class.
Wonderful overview of human development.
I REALLY AM BLESSED TO BE A STUDENT IN HER GROUP AND WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE KINDNESS AND UNDERSTANDING SHE HAS.
Loved this class!!!!!

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
What I learned can be applied to my life. Information about development, memory, behavior, etc.
I leaned about how the brain works
The Instructor was very open to questions during her lectures and would stay after class to answer questions.
She makes topics very interesting and makes us want to learn more about the class.
I feel that everything that was taught in the course was very helpful and valuable. Nothing should change about this course at all.
I enjoyed the powerpoints. They made it easy to follow the course material. The instructor's sense of humor made me think harder about the strangeness of life and the meaning of human behavior. Class discussions often became very interesting as varying perspectives were equally valued and considered. Critical thinking was constantly encouraged.
That the course was set up so that you can do the whole thing online
I loved how convenient her notes were and if you missed one day of class the lectures are readily available to you online. The notes were also simple and straight to the point, no excess info you don't need to worry about.
Dr. Haackʻs teaching style/method. It is an enjoyable class and I donʻt say that about any classes. There is no stress or ultimatums that put the learning experience in a constant state of pressure.
The whole class to me was very valuable. I learned alot and really enjoyed it.
Laura uses humor and grace and memory minders to facilitate learning.
I appreciated her uploading all the power points early so we were able to have them with us in class
It helped that the powerpoints were on laulima.
Taking this course has got me to think differently about myself and others. I now have a better understanding of how our minds and bodies function and why humans do the things they do, such as why we react a certain way in some situations.
I found how we learn to be most valuable and helpful
A lot of the information, guest speakers, helped a lot
I found the online uploaded resources the most valuable about the course.
Everything. I loved her class.
always create a purpose to step outside of the box in order to expand into life's journey.
Mrs. Haack is funny and easy to follow.
The new information about the human psyche.
I think the instructors use of power-points and videos as well as class discussions made the class interesting and kept the students involved, this led to everyone learning the material and retaining it as well. I greatly enjoyed the class and would gladly take another of her classes.
Everything... From PowerPoint Presentation to real life examples... Gave me good understanding..
The group discution we always had, also the way she explained things was great. She always gave great examples so we would understand the point she was trying to get across. This was overall a great class.
What I found most valuable and helpful about the course was everything, the material and notes were very interesting and was taught really well and understandable.
learning more about the psychological side of humans, animals, etc...
Dr. Haack was always prepared every week to present the information and the subject matter to the class with interest, fun and a great attitude! I learned something new every class and shared the information with my family!
What I found most valuable and helpful about the course was the course material, as well as the lecture notes, and the instructor. Psychology is a subject that I haven't explored much up until now, and I'm glad to be learning all of these new things. The extra credit opportunities were awesome. The online exams were great as well. I love your exam policy! Professor Haack lets students work at their own pace, which helps many college students succeed in their classes. The detailed slideshows are great for reviewing and make great study material. Haack is great at answering every question her students may have. She is also very attentive to her students. To summarize, the instructor, the material (almost all of it), and the way the class was organized and executed (online exams, extra credit, lecture notes) were the most valuable and helpful components of this course. The other students were great too!
I found it interesting to be able to "diagnose" theories more closely. Also the many different personality classifications and disorders :) reminded me of how different everyone is and how amazingly the mind works.
Everything she teaches is very clear and i could able to understand all her teachings.
I learned a lot.

Her knowledge in the topic of psychology is the most valuable thing about her. It's helpful because having a teacher who knows what they're talking about is amazing.
She is very active and non-draining.
Her teaching style allows students to come to their own conclusions, while also showing alternatives to interpreting the data. She clearly demonstrates that psychological knowledge is always expanding and so should our thinking about psychology.
HEr super friendly personality. She is super interesting and its refreshing that she can make us laugh in class. Nice mix.
She seems to have an unopinionated attitude regarding her students and treats all fairly and respectfully.
She is very easy to get along with and was a great teacher
Most valuable about Laura Haack is her zest for life. She optimizes her philosophy that psychology should be fun!
I feel sometimes psychology can be a boring subject but Haack made it fun and interesting
She made the material interesting.
Mrs. Haack has a very useful style of teaching which allows all students to relate and understand the content covered in class.
She was always willing to help us with any problems or answer are questions.

She's very kind, and has a great background in psychology. She's very funny, and was very lively during lectures.
Dr. Haack was very capable of explaining the answer to most questions and if she did not have the answer, she would respond back at the next class. Her classes provided alot of information.

This course is great, and it covers a lot of material. I would've liked to have learned more about applying psychology. I would've liked to have covered more about marketing (and how psychology and marketing relate), the reasons why people do things, and more applications if possible, such as just for fun poker games (predicting cards). Overall it was a great course and I did learn a lot. These areas were pretty much covered, but I would've loved to explore these areas deeper versus some other parts of psychology.
dont go too far out on rants about random topics when students try to stray you away from your lesson.
-should provide some clips or videos for each of the Chapters and that would make it more intersting.

i found the slide show and visual aids helpful in learning the concepts taught in class! ohh and your cat video was very intresting playing the piano!
I learned a lot about Phys.
Online exams and assignments.
Everything
The fact that all of the assignments and powerpoints were posted on Laulima really helped me because there were days that i could not physically be present and i still was able to keep up with the class and know what i missed.
helped me think more and look and study the people around me.
I learned alot
The whole course makes it worth it, you learn all sorts of stuff.
learning about how and why people of different ages do things.
I found the course to be a good overview of the core principals of psychology, I really enjoyed the low pressure of the class which allowed me to more focus on the learning and not have to stress so much about homework and essays.
I like the way she teaches its not to slow and not too fast its a good pace.
Lectures are posted online so if any information was missed in class, it was available to go back and retrieve the information. Also, all homework and exams are available online so everything is readily available for students at their convenience.
New info.
It was especially helpful that the power points were available on Laulima as well as tests, quizzes, and majority of the assignments. Haack created a unique way of learning Psychology.
This course allowed me to be more observant. I am able to utilize the things I have learned and I have a better understanding of people.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
like i aid before, the slide shows and visual aids helped. Also reading the book helped too.
Shes super funny.
She posted all of her slideshows online so if we missed a day of class, it was easy to recover.
Everything
The fact that a lot of the course material was directly related to everyday life helped a lot. Also, she taught life lessons such as not doing drugs and ways to avoid getting date-raped.
she was always able to give a good answer
If I needed help she would help me
That her in class discussions is posted on laulima. It really helps out a bunch.
She was intrestresting and kept me wanting to go back to class to learn.
That she was knowledgeable and cared about the content that she teaches. It is obvious she is passionate about her subject and that energy transfers over to the students.
She connects greatly with the students.
She teaches in a conversational style and engages students in discussion. Professor Haack is knowledgable on the subject and incorporates stories and her humor in her lectures which helps in understanding the material. She is also quite approachable outside of class and readily shares any elaboration on information if necessary.
Insighful.
same as above.
Professor Haack made the subject matter easy to comprehend. It was fun learning about psychology because of her good sense of humor.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I found the lecture from the police most valuable(sorry Mrs. Haack!). It taught me a bit of how to better take care of myself when I am to be living on my own. However there was a wealth of helpful information in the lectures about children, parents, a how relationships are formed between all people. It was quite an interesting class.
Interacting with other students
What I found most helpful about this class was that we have an exteded amout of time to get out tests done.
Online help!
I learned so much on how others think, I learned that i'm not the only voice! I learned that everybody totally has a different outlook on EVERYTHING!
I believe it is when Professor Haack expresses herself as to how important it is to her to understand each of us to know how hard we work to come to college, and therefore, she wants to make sure that we understand the concept of why we are there in Psychology 220. Professor Haack always emailed us to let us know that she had the power points ready for us to run off to take to class for discussions. I found this to be a valuable source for me to follow as we walked through our lesson in class. I understood as Professor Haack would talk about each slide, using her own experience to relate to what she was talking about. Being in this class has really helped me to learn and understand the process of a child being raised to adulthood. Sometimes, we think we know much, but we don't, because there are more information out there for us to grasp and use it in our daily lives. We can even use it to enhance our grown children to be able to work with their children in this manner, too, with understanding and patience.I feel that I can approach the situation that I am learning with more confidence because Professor Haack has shown us such a humbling, positive attitude. She has such great empathy for people. What a remarkable person/teacher she is. I loved taking her classes. What has been helpful to me with Professor Haack was when she would take the time to talk and listen to you and email you on line and open up her line to you too, if you had any questions that you needed to ask. She was very understanding when I would be sick and I appreciated that, too. I was always able to make up work.
class discussions and lecture was really helpful.
The open discussions in class and the I really really like the teacher she is very supportive and an excellent teacher.
it prepared me for the road head and kept me thinking about how things work in life.
Instructor is personable and knowledgeable and i enjoyed the class discussions.
Everything
Ms. Haack gave examples and stories that related with real life.
learning about the difference in each age group
she explained every concept regarding about situations that we go through our daily lives.
Professor Haack made us think about the developmetal stages of people. The cause and effects of what society reflects on each individual person. Class discussions allowed us to see things beyond the textbook or what websites could provide and Professor Haack's professional opinion gave us a better understanding of our own views and opinions on such matters.
Being able to view the slide show in Laulima.
The most valuable information that find helpful in class is the psychological study of life, from birth to adult hood. I learn how babes think to how adults deal with their emotion, etc. I found that Laura Haack's class very helpful.
Lauras awsome smile :D

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Mrs. Haack is willing to look up the answer about your question if she doesn't know it, and she actually brings it to the next class. Her humor makes class more enjoyable.
Commitment to students
What I found to be most valuable about Lara was her stories that went alone with the lessons. Stories really help me remember the chapters.
The way she choose to teach the class, with her smart and funny humor!
Class was great explanation of the book and all slides were well thought out and related to the material well
She's a very nice teacher, explains everything she puts up!
I guess I kind of put a lot into the first part of my questions. Professor Haack has a very nice personality and is a very soft spoken teacher. She gets her point across to you and at the same time, she was always open to questions and giving answers. Professor Haack has a way of speaking to all of us in a real down to earth sort of way; greeting us with a "HI", or a "Hello", and a great smile. She puts you at ease and makes you feel very comfortable. She is funny when she tells you funny stories about her cat before we start off class and that kind of puts you into that mood of starting off with her. When she does her power points, she makes sure that you understand what she has and waits for you to be able to move on to the next. She has such great patience with her class/myself, and I really appreciate that very much. She is helpful when she gives you a chance to make up your test when you do poorly on the first one. She expresses how she wanats each of us to be able to complete this class with understanding and knowledge, but yet, she makes it so interesting. Doing class, she has us sign the sheet and answer the question she has for us in each class. Answering that question will help her make a decision about us. She is a very open hearted person, who laughs and has beautiful eyes and a beautiful smile. I had to say that. She is a very valuable and helpful teacher that is always willing to help you.
she is very awesome and funny. She can relate events as well
I thought that sending the powerpoints was awesome because teachers always talk so fast in class and sometimes it's hard to take all the notes down, so this helped so that we could jot stuff down in additon to the lecture notes.
she explains things in detail and knows how to respond to questions and comments.
She is professional in her work but easy to get along with.
Everything
Her open mind and accepting attitude made it a positive environment to learn and ask questions.
She knows how to relate the subject well to students, using real scenerios and ideas.
she makes the subject simple and clear.
She is an amazing teacher who was able to guide us through this learning process and was willing to answer any questions we may have had.
Mrs.Haack used life experiences and examples to better understand the topic.
The discussions we have in class about the subject and other students opinions.
Lauara's awsome smile
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I do wish that we had been able to participate in activities or projects. I also realize that time constraints may have made this impossible. If that is the case, it would be enjoyable for future classes to have shot in class group discussions on parts of the presentations to break up the time. :)
Good class
Something she can improve on is making the class interact with the lessons a little more.
none
Maybe some homework?
It's hard for me to say what kind of improvement the course needs or the teacher's style, because Professor Haack is a wonderful teacher and she knows her course to the max, in and out. she can talk to you about Psychology without looking at her book, and when she answers questions, she is so smart, wise, and knowledgeable. We need to improve in our behavior when we are in her class, to make sure that she still has the floor in talking to us. We need to improve to be respectful of everyone in the class. We need to be respectful to open our ears and listen and not talk when Professor Haack is speaking. This isn't me, because I want to hear what she has to say, without missing that funny joke or something. I am very impressed with Professor Haack and encourage everyone to go to her class if they are going that way. Thank you.
nothing except maybe a video or two :)

Thanks ms, for teaching me so much!
Overall, I have been very pleased and blessed for the opportunity that I had of taking two classes with Professor Haack. It has been very enjoyable for me except when I got sick, but the opportunity was always there for me to make up classes or homework and tests. Thank you Professor Haack and have a wonderful Christmas and New Years with your family and everyone. God bless you. Aloha, Arde
best teacher ever
n/a
She belong here at KCC and I think that you should make her a perminate teacher and give her more day classes instead of dumb hours
Having afternoon classes really helps working mother's etc. to continue there education. I wished more afternoon classes were offered at the campus. Overall, Mrs.Haack did a wonderful job teaching the class and it was easy to understand and learn about Human development.

Learning about different behavoirs
The teacher was really cool.
I enjoy the topic of psychology so I am biased. It really interests me to hear about our brains and analyze why humans behave the way they do.
The power points being available before class made it easier to follow the lectures. Psychology is actually interesting subject.
She is always well prepared coming to class with a power point presentation to lecture for us students.
The slideshows in the class was very different from my usual classes, but it really helped me learn more about the subject with the slides. The visuals included within the slides helped me to learn more instead of just reading the information out of a textbook. I enjoyed looking at the pictures on the slides while listening to the lecture.
That she had stories that would relate to the topic at hand.
Her Lectures and the power point she provided weekly. Also really appreciated the flexability of taking assignments and test online.
That she made a powerpoint for each chapter to teach us what is in the chapter. I find that way easier than us, the students, read the chapter alone.
The resources that she put up on Laulima. They helped me prompt myself before class every week

She takes the time to explain and does it in a fun way
Her slideshows had kittens.
She is very patient when responding to student questions. She will expand on any ideas that are unclear until they are made clear.
Professor Haack is an outstanding teacher. She has a unique way of teaching that has made her class fun. I really though that Psychology would be a harder subject for me, but thanks to her, I enjoyed learning and look forward to Psych 220.
Her concepts in explaining different topics flows clearly enough for me to understand when she comes across a slide show that I do not quite understand.
Mrs. Haack was a very cheerful teacher that came into class with a different vibe from other teachers. I thought that how she taught was really great because she made the students feel like they were talking to someone on an equal ground. She was comfortable to listen to because she added in some of her humor to the information that she taught us, which helped me to stay on topic and learn.
Laura Haack made the class interesting by telling stories.
She showed up for every class, really demonstrated she enjoyed what she was teaching. Took the time to make assignments interesting as weel as relavent to context.
She gave us helpful hints on how to prepare ourselves for an exam. Like study right before you go to bed so the information will sink in while we are sleeping.
The slideshows that she made for each chapter
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
No suggestions needed
More kittens.
not available because having her as an instructor this semester, she did a great job in all her lectures!
I think she should include more interesting pictures in her slides instead of a lot of slides with just words on them. The pictures helped me to stay focused and think about the subject more because it was something that I could look at instead of reading it out of a textbook.
Find more stories.
everything was fine- continue what she is doing!
NONE!

24. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course is fine the way it is
Better class room.
I think the course could be improved with more activities for the students in the class. The lectures were awesome with the slides, but there were sometimes where the subject was pretty boring and didn't really catch my attention. Maybe a class use of computers for an activity or something else group related to the subject would have a positive effect on the class.
The class shouldn't change. I like it the way it is.
n/a enjoyed it as is....
This course could have been approved by a smaller class size. Maybe just a few students less than what is given now.

For example, ideas about different professions I would like to possibly pursue, or different ideas regarding her assigned homework. She always responds thoughtfully and promptly. She is a very supportive teacher and responds to the needs of her students with the genuine intention of helping us to learn.
I enjoyed the class a lot this semester with Mrs. Haack's use of interesting slides with her lecture. It was a bit different from my usual classes and that difference made it interesting to me.
Great job with your teaching.
Haack is a very fun teacher

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The homework and testing
It helped me to understand what is mentally going on in the minds of the human race.
The lectures.
Her lectures and the quizes
I really like that her powerpoint are really helpful and has helpful pictures!
I mostly valued Dr. Haacks consistent style and method in delivering the material each class session. Each class I received so much information on the life span of human behavior from pre birth to aging. I feel confident from the information that I learned from this class in understanding the reasons why people do the things that they do.
In this course we were able to have open class discussions. We didn't just read from the text, professor Haack gave us detailed explanations from experience as well as the class.
The communication with the teacher. Having communication made it easier to understand concepts, readings, and information that was being presented. It also helped me to do well on quizzes and exams.
I found out how the Human Brain works, and the stages in life that you go through from birth.
It was very relaxed atmosphere since all work was done online and discussions were good.
all the work.
I found Professor Haack's flexibility most helpful. And the way she explained and presented the information was really easy to understand. She always used examples and things that we would understand to explain the concept better. She clearly explains the class and all of her lessons well.

Teaching style was helpful and drew the entire class in.
The enthusiasm and happiness in the classroom.
She encouraged in class discussions and posted the slides shows from class on Laulima.
her knowledge on subject and her way of explaining lecture in a more understanable content. She makes learning interesting.
shes a very understanding professor!
I appreciated Dr. Haack's style and method of teaching that was easy to follow, to understand and to follow.
All questions were answered and lessons were fun and helpful.
What i found most valuable and helpful about Mrs. Haack in general was her teaching personality and ways of teaching. Her personality and teaching ways made it easy to have fun in this class as well as understand concepts in a different way rather then just reading materials.
shes a great teacher to listen to.
Very good teacher and down to earth so easy to talk to
- very flexible - easy to understand - always explained concepts in a fun way - always gave good examples - used personal experiences
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
none
Actually I don't really have any suggestions, it was a great course!
No suggestions, she did great. i like the way her class is set up.
there is no suggestions, i LOVE her class!
One suggestion would be to include more interaction among the students. Group discussions, problem solving, would help to increase classmate bonding.
Laura Haack emailed every weeks power point to the students prior to going over them. There was no classwork and minimal homework. If I hadn't read the book at home I would be limited to the power points. There were no class discussions other than gossip. This class was a waste of time.
I don't have any suggestions.
There could be more student physical activities that relates to the chapter.
No suggestions
nothing
I like this course, so I dont really think that the course should change. And Professor Haack was a fun teacher so I dont think she should change either.

24. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
There could be more movies relating to the subject shown during class. Professor Hack could give more opportunities for extra credit.
I think that a group observation project in psychology class would have been fun!
no improvement needed
More classroom interaction.
I believe if bookwork was assigned and we went over the book in class everyone would have learned a little bit. The power point was a lazy way of teaching.
I don't think it needs to be improved.
More student activities
The course doesnt need improvement its a great class.
I dont think that this course needs improvement.
25. Other comments:
This was a great course and I am glad that I took it!
I really enjoyed her class, she made me interested in a topic that wasnt my favorite.
i recomend this class all the time to my fellow kauai community college friends.
I appreciated Dr. Haack's class, I learned alot about human behavior, I liked her style and method of teaching. I will be taking another Psychology class in the Fall.
I really ejoyes Mrs. Haack as a teacher as well as being enrolled in Psych 220
It was a great class! I had a lot of fun!

9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Definitely the in-class discussions. It was a very free environment, I was able to gain more depth about any point made simply by asking a question. I learned a lot by pursuing the lines of thought produced by the material provided in the lectures, possibly as much as I did otherwise.
I just love learning about how others think and why they think the way they do. It is so magnificent. I loved the way the tests are set up. I believe she uses psychology on us students for our tests.
The course presented the information needed in an easy to understand yet thorough manner.
I learned much about different things i did not know. People, Personalities, etc....
I believe that when I first started I wasn't sure what was going to happen until I started in the first week and found to my amazement that Professor Haack really had a purpose for all of us; teaching and talking to us as she did her power points on the screen, which really helped. I really appreciated her fairness and personal attitude with the whole class. Her tests were structured so that we could understand and read more into our textbooks as we did our tests. I found Professor Haack to be very open and humorous with our class. It was a very enjoyable experience for me this semester and I hope that I can take another class with Professor Haack again. It was fun being in Professor Haack's class. We answered questions relating to a lesson we were on while we were in the middle of our lesson, on our placard. It gave us a chance to express ourselves as to how that certain lesson related to us (our lives or experience), which was very interesting.This has been a wonderful experience to have been able to communicate with our Professor,even out of class as we walked to catch the bus home. Professor Haack is very knowledgeable in her subject and comes prepared to class always. Thank you for this opportunity to be able to evaluate our teacher/Professor. Arde L. Long-Yamashita
I found the overall learning experience to be most valuable to me and the teacher the most helpful about this course.
I liked professor Haack. Good professor; really relaxed and comfortable environment. You knew what you were talking about and related a lot of your information to everyday things. Always had some jokes, which made the class a lot more fun.

22. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Again, the in-class discussions. She was able to fill in and flesh out any concepts that I found myself curious about, and many that I wouldn't have even otherwise considered. I'm more educated and interested in psychology than I was the day I walked into class, and I'd not have gotten the same fulfillment of mind if I had simply read from a book. No matter how I feel when I walk in, I always leave class with my mind active and energetic.
She doesn't just read the lectures to our class. She puts experience in the lectures. She uses stories of her own to help us understand things clearly.
Her way of teaching was very understandable.
I found Professor Haack to be very humble, fair, respectful and understanding and always had an an open mind. If and when we asked her questions and she was not able to answer them that was not quite in the lesson, but still regarding Psychology, she would come back to the next class with an answer. She followed through with what she said she would and always made sure that we were informed of our assignments all of the time. It was great to be emailing her whenever we needed help or to explain a situation that she could help us with if that was possible. Professor Haack has a great smile and a pleasant personality, and we always had humor in our class that made it even more interesting.Oh, and we also all had placards that she had us write our names on and made sure that we had them on the top of our desks so that everyone could see each other's names. And on that placard, she made good use of them to have us answer questions that she would ask us and we would write them in our placard. Interesting! She always gave us an opportunity to make sure that we could do our work and do our tests and was always there to prompt and encourage us. Even though we are adults but its still kind of nice to be treated as hard working students. Thank you
She went out on her own time to go find answers to the questions that she didn't know that we really did want to know.
Always open to answer any question (even the questions that are completely off topic and not relevant at all)
23. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I don't really have many. I found her teaching style very effective and stimulating. Perhaps having more class time, because often due to discussions we'd end up having to stop before the end of the chapter and continue from there at the beginning of the next class, or we would rush through some points in order to make up for lost time.
It was a great course and she has wonderful methods.
I have never taken Psychology before and being that this was my first experience, I found that our class was pretty well organized with tools, power points on a rolled down screen, information either on paper, email, or on Laulima. We had a great thing going there. Laura Haack's teaching style is awesome and her methods are well done. Being informal with your class not only makes one comfortable and at ease, but brings out the best in you to want to participate because we get treated with respect. She speaks in a way that you can understand and gives you time to take notes and still finishes her power points in class. I think that is amazing. Laura Haack is a good teacher/professor and I and everyone have enjoyed her throughout this semester. Mahalo Nui Loa to Professor Laura Haack, she is a warm and gracious instructor. Arde L. Long-Yamashita
allow us to access slides before not after they are discussed in class so we can take notes on them
I would suggest going slower when doing note presentations.
Maybe do some more in class activities, because powerpoint becomes a bit redundant.

Overall a great professor!
I can't complain about anything because everything that she did for us was very fair and complete, and very satisfying. Thank you
I hope to have her again for PSY 220!
