Mr. Beemer is very understanding of any situation His student may have, or supporting when any one will be struggling.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
None
have a clearer outline for the assignments.
None
he was very insightful but sometimes a little too much to the point that the slides on his powerpoints fly by. if i had to make a change i would lessen the amount of slides.
I think it will be better to lessen the percent given on the research paper. I think the research would be a little harder. It can greatly affect the student's great even if he/she was able to turn in everything else.
It would help if he did a review with the class the day before the test/quiz.
Sir God Bless you i would like to say thought I know you mentioned the person who created or started the course is an anthropologist I would like to say that you find a structure for your own methods of teaching and projects.

Professor Beemer always encouraged students to ask questions if there were any. He also gave reviews for tests the class before.
