Many found the teaching assistants extremely helpful but the tutorials unnecessary. Students felt that the professor spoke too quickly during the lectures. It is suggested that he use overheads, PowerPoint slides, and summaries to outline his lectures. Also, that the professor should definitely have his lecture notes and course outline online. Some felt he provided great examples and good videos. Some felt that there was too much reading in the course and that the course expectations should be a little clearer because they feel that there is too much material to cover within such a short period of time. It is recommended that more methods of evaluation are used like quizzes and tests rather than in-class essays to allow more room for improvement. Also, some prefer cultural anthropology more than the other material taught in the course. In general, this was a good professor and interesting course.

Professor Cummings? enthusiasm and knowledge were praised by students, with many acknowledging her effective use of examples to illustrate concepts. The readings interested students but most felt that the workload was too high for a first-year course. Marking on exams/assignments was generally thought to be fair, although many wished to have more freedom with the book review assigned. Some suggestions included speaking slower and exercising more control over the class. Nonetheless, students greatly enjoyed Prof. Cummings? teaching style and noted that it inspired them to think differently about the world.

There were very few negative comments about Professor Hetherington and his class. Students thought Professor Hetherington was passionate, knowledgeable, well-spoken and felt that he genuinely cared about them. Students were particularly impressed that this was his first time teaching, and appreciated hearing his personal experiences doing fieldwork. The course was well organized and the discussions, both in class and online, were very much appreciated by the majority of students, despite a large class (thus making discussions during lecture difficult). Some found the readings to be heavy for a first year course, but thought they were valuable and especially liked the ethnography selected.

Many students thought that the professor was great and explained concepts well. However, not all liked her lecture style. Some found her "word-for-word" dictation of notes boring and even frustrating; a few suggested the use of PowerPoint or overhead notes in class. On the other hand, some students liked the professor's style and found it easy to follow. Most thought the material for the course interesting and informative, however some found it too specific for a survey course. A few also thought the work load to be a bit too heavy. Although a few did appreciate the tutorials and thought the T.A. great, tutorials did not seem to be helpful in general, with a number of students complaining about the T.A. not knowing much about what the professor taught in class. Some also thought the midterm asked insignificant questions in regard to the course material and was dissatisfied with the marking. Overall, most enjoyed the course although a few were disappointed.

Professor Bamford was a great professor and many students commended that she communicated concepts clearly in lectures, although some thought she lacked enthusiasm, perhaps due to her laid-back style. Lectures were mostly verbal with no visual aids, leading to a relatively slow pace. A significant number of students expressed that it would be more desirable if the professor made use of the intranet instead of handing notes out in lectures which delayed the class. The material was generally interesting although some thought the load was slightly too much. Reactions towards the tutorials were divided - some found them helpful while some thought it a waste of time and should not be made compulsory; some even pointed out that the TAs did not know anything about the lectures. The midterm consisted of both MC questions and short answers, which some students thought fair. But some mentioned it focused mainly on readings and very little on lectures. Students generally found the course interesting and enjoyable.

Similar to the other section of this class, students suggest Professor Lambek might slow down somewhat, praise the TAs, and consider the material valuable and interesting.

Students in this course report that Professor Schillachi is a generally competent lecturer, enthusiastic and engaged with his subject matter, but they express various concerns about the structure of the course. Several comment that the midterm was returned in sections, the later part quite late, and this impacted their ability to gauge their progress in the course.

Quite a number of students mentioned that the tutorial felt like a separate class and that handling both sides of the course contributed significantly to their workload. Most, however, did appreciate their TA, John.

Quite a number of students said they felt that some break during a two-hour lecture was important but also report that Professor Deane was generally quite interesting and capable as a lecturer, they would just prefer him one hour at a time.

Professor Lambert is an exceptional professor who is well-prepared, helpful, and knowledgeable. He acknowledges questions and answers them effectively and enthusiastically. Good use of discussion in class to debate issues; more discussion would make the course more interesting. It was suggested more structure is needed for the course, such as having mid-term evaluations; students would know their progress in the course and would observe the instructor's evaluation style. The material presented was interesting but some felt it needed more depth and analysis. The lectures were very informative but they were a bit fast-paced at times causing some students to become confused. The teaching and reading load was quite heavy for a half course. It was suggested that this course be changed from a half course to a full-year course (two half courses, part one and part two) Overall, a very enjoyable and educational course.

Many students liked Professor Schillaci but found his teaching of the course to be very vague and disorganized. Expectations for the weekly assignments were unclear and often communicated after the fact. Professor Schillaci seemed to lecture right from the textbook and had poor explanations for the different concepts. Sometimes the lectures seemed too short and simple for students to thoroughly understand the material.

Many students liked Professor Lambek's lectures, saying he was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and informative. However, others felt that he seemed unwilling to answer students' questions, and found his responses somewhat unprofessional or rude. Many commented that he spoke too fast and hence spent more time trying to write rather than trying to understand the lecture. As well, many would have appreciated outlines or notes being posted on the Intranet, especially since the lectures were fast-paced. The topics were interesting but the material seemed outdated and did not give a good understanding of key concepts and ideas. Some students commented that marking on the assignments seemed unfair and subjective with insufficient feedback, and it would have been helpful to know more of their marks before going into the exam.

Students in this course felt that Professor Lambek was interesting and effective at presenting the course material, but often rushed through lectures too fast to keep track of his points and topics. Various suggestions to address this concern include the use of powerpoint or overhead projections, and notes posted on the internet after class for reference by students who were unable to get everything they wanted during the lecture.

Some students felt that there was too much reading for this course and that there needed to be more variety in the course material. Also, some mentioned that there was a lot of note-taking, which did not allow for discussion and some mentioned that the professor needed to speak louder, perhaps by using a microphone. A concern was that the lectures were sometimes hard to follow. It was suggested that having overheads in lecture, online-accessible lecture notes, and other types of visual aids outlining each lecture would perhaps decrease the number of students who lose their way in lectures.

Professor Boddy is an excellent instructor who articulates information in an insightful manner. Her seminar style lectures were productive. The actual classroom was not suitable for a seminar; there were many students in a small room located in a noisy environment. There would be more lecture time in class if more time could be devoted to lecture material instead of discussion. Some readings were difficult and rather lengthy. There is a high aptitude for learning in this course and in general, the course was enjoyable.
