What is wrong with Bryant?
When I took Bryant 1st semester...he was dumb. This man made us write essays on the crazy topics and then he had the nerve to grade hard. He made us read through this grammar book because he said we were misplacing our commas and periods. He's class is boring! One thing that tripped me out was that fact that we had to write two essays on the Muslim process of prayer and on the Muslim war, ****. He was Muslim and wanted us to learn his way of life. However, I heard he is engaged....so mybe he got "some" and calmed down a little. Who knows. Just tough it out though. I still earned an A and that is because he lets you revise and rewrite essays for a better grade...so that is the good thing about him.
Oh okay that isn't too bad ::wipes sweat from forehead:: He sounds like a teacher I had for english in high school :lol:

For all the School Of Business students and others taking these courses: -Don't worry about your Business Orientation class, because all you have to do is attend and you are almost guaranteed an A. -For Spanish try getting Luna and And Pauline Jackson if they still do Spanish 1 and 2 -Basically all the math teachers that Howard have are garbage and the others can hardly speak english. The only good one I heard of is Goodlett...so try to get him - For Anthropology try getting Dr. Arvilla Payne-Jackson....she's real cool and all your tests are take home. -For English try getting Harrell or Preston.....their teaching to me came off as a little "sweet", but they love giving out A's if your work is pretty str8. - If anyone if is taking Intro. to Black Diaspora, you need to holla at a teacher with the last name of Shango.....I basically went to class twice a month (your grade is mostly based on papers) , and came out with an A. *If you need some more help finding a good/easy teacher in your course holla at me and I'll try to find you someone who had one

Both are good. I had "Senorita Paulina" and she was just **** in my opinion. First time i actually love going to Spanish. Unfortunately she doesn't do spanish 2, so i got stuck with Tucker. Both of them are Jamaican, but this man has a lisp...PLUS he talks fast. Imagine that added in with Spanish...not cool. I got a good grade tho. He isn't hard. -Basically all the math teachers that Howard have are garbage and the others can hardly speak english. The only good one I heard of is Goodlett...so try to get him. VERY true, one reason why i punked out and DID NOT take a math course last year. Thought i would do it at a JC, but it didn't work out. So i'll be in Algebra 1 with Moore. He's young, i hear an okay teacher, PLUS he doesn't have an accent...and that's a rare find! - For Anthropology try getting Dr. Arvilla Payne-Jackson....she's real cool and all your tests are take home. -For English try getting Harrell or Preston.....their teaching to me came off as a little "sweet", but they love giving out A's if your work is pretty str8.I LOVED me some Harrell. He's as sweet as a skittle, but a good teacher. He'll get in ya **** about some grammar, but i think overall it just makes u a better writer. 2nd semester i had Greene, she's a cool teacher as well. A professional editor, so she'll get in that tail as well. But a cool one. - If anyone if is taking Intro. to Black Diaspora, you need to holla at a teacher with the last name of Shango.....I basically went to class twice a month (your grade is mostly based on papers) , and came out with an A. *If you need some more help finding a good/easy teacher in your course holla at me and I'll try to find you someone who had one

For Introduction to African American Studies 1 & 2, I took Dr. Carr and I enjoyed his classes. When I was a Freshman, I took Dr. Ruppell for English Comp. He also teaches Humanties, but his class usually fills it quickly. I took Dahlin also for Cultural Anthropology, and he was cool, but at times he put me to sleep.
