  • Class rating 5/5
    She is friendly. Despite being a business major and coming into the class with absolutely no interest in learning about geology, she made class time interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommended. ...Continue reading

    Class is really easy, but she lectures as if she has a room of 1st graders. she curves the tests. the homeworks are reused each year. she posts the lecture and study guides. if you use the study guides you'll be fine for tests. the material is boring but its easy. ...Continue reading

    Janelle was a great professor. Responds to emails within it hour! Makes the class fun! She is excellent...she loves her subject, but understands that not everyone does. Prepare for tests moderately and you'll be fine. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    I absolutely loved Janelle! She really wants her students to do well, and she understands that most people take the course for Miami Plan. She doesn't take attendance but there are in class assignments every few days that add up. It is easy to do well in the course because she tells you exactly what you need to know for tests. She posts notes on blackboard and doesn't take attendance, but I found it helps a lot if you actually go to class. She give away a lot of test questions and answers to homework during the lectures. The only need for the book is to look up some key terms for study guides. (study guides help so much!) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    a great professor, really kind and helpful. She gives you so many easy points with clickers & EC, online quizzes are easy, and tests are straight-forward. If anything, the homework is the only challenge you may face. I would highly recommend her. Just go to class and an A is really yours. You would pretty much have to not try to get anything lower than a B. She offers a lot of extra credit too. She's very nice and excited and energetic about Geology, easiest class I've had in 4 years @ Miami ...Continue reading

    Ms. Sikorski is super sweet and helpful. She was a fantastic teacher. Just yes. If you have to take this course take it with her. She explains everything and is super clear and awesome and yea. She practically hands you an A when you sign up for her class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This class is very easy if you go all the time. The class is so easy too. Over 1200 points given out and many people have A's. She gives out easy busy work. The tests are pretty easy. Make sure to go to class to get your clicker points. Highly recommend taking a class with her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Very easy if you just go to class and complete the in class work. Willing to help and provides extra credit. ICE's give easy points and grade boosters. Tests are easy if you dedicate around 1-2 hours (for say 3 days) in studying. GO TO CLASS EVERYDAY AND IT'S HARD TO NOT GET AN A. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    She is a great teacher, I really enjoyed her class. The tests dont come out to be a large part of your grade. The final just counts as a normal test grade and she only uses multiple choice questions from the past tests plus some new material. Very easy if youre not lazy If assignments were cut by even a third, the class would be enjoyable. She is such a great lecturer and great person who cares about her students ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    She is sooo nice...but the class is really tedious...so many assignments get really annoying. There are tons of clicker points and the homework is very straightforward. She gives study guides for each test which can sometimes over prepare you for them. I put in minimal effort in this class and got an A- My favorite proffesor so far at Miami!! The class is also super easy and you can tell she tries really hard to make it interesting. She also will make cute, funny little comments randomly through class that gets everyone laughing! high reccomend her! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Take her if you want an easy science class. If you're not into geology this class is for you. She just skims over the subject, but we never go too into detail. She very clearly outlines what will be on the test on the study guides and gives you more hints before the test. Homework is never to hard, but there is a lot of it, which gives you cushion for the test. It will be tempting to skip almost every class but it is easy enough that if you go to every class and listen you can easily get an A. Just listen to what she says. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She's a good teacher. She gives tons of extra credit and the homework is a joke There are a lot of points for the class, which helps. And there are 3 extra credit days, which is an easy 15 extra points added to your grade! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    i had this class first semester and EVERYBODY thought it was an awesome class, all of peabody hall had it cause of courses in common and we all did well in it i dont find it possible for the class to change that much from the fall to the spring semesters... Extremely friendly, with a good attitude. Lots of work involved but its straight forward and simple. Like i usually get a 25/25 on all the worksheets. The exams dont count for much thx to all the other grades, but their also simple. I wish all the professors around here would take up her style of teaching. Gives powerpoints for everything she covers, so if you can't copy all the notes, they're online. Quizzes for each chapter, that you can take twice. Homework, but if you have problems, she's willing to help. A really good class, and it kept me awake since I took it at 8 am. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    hard class. She treated this as a 300 level class when it is simply a Miami Plan Class. She grades assignments very conservatively and takes off no matter how well you think you have done. Tests are very hard and she does not give a damn about her students. Take any other GLG teacher because she is not worth your time or money. It is too easy, which might seem like a plus, but it's not. Although I'll receive an A in the course, I feel as if I didn't really earn it like in my other classes. She doesn't seem to care about students and will give different answers to the same question. I would avoid her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    One of the worst classes that I've taken since I came to Miami. She seems nice enough but once you get a test back her real personality shows. Seems to not understand that it is a 100 level class. Avoid her at all costs. She is not worth the stress of a 100 level course. Oh and she never returns emails and is hardly present during officehours ...Continue reading

    She cant teach for her life. She is also one of the most awkard people you will meet. She just got tenure this past january so as she said in class i can do whatever i want and not get fired.

    He gives you all the tools you need to get a good grade (lecture review questions) and he will answer all questions without being mean. It's not hard if you actually go to class and take notes, and study. Geology isn't an interesting subject to begin with, but he doesn't make it too bad. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Geology is of course not everyone's favorite subject but he makes it clear and interesting. the class has almost no homework and attendance isn't mandatory but i would recommend it. Holm tells you everything on the test in his lectures. No need to buy the book. Great class overall. Dr, Holm gives you all the material you need to pass his class, and he's a nice guy with a good sense of humor. If you're not a whiner, you should appeciate his course. ...Continue reading
