Tufts University: ANTH150 - HUMAN EVOLUTION - Anthropology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Stephen Bailey | ANTH150 - HUMAN EVOLUTION | Anthropology2005-05-09

Review:
This course, though academically very interesting, was just ridiculous. Bailey was 10-15 minutes to class without fail and, as a result, kept the class overtime. He didn't give us a syllabus until April (despite requests for one) and 3/4 of the assignments were assigned and due in the last 3 weeks of class (yes, during finals period). He didn't respond to emails. Most bothersome, though, was his generally disagreeable attitude.

Workload:
The workload was fine but extremely bunched up in the end. Tests were often arbitrary- you could study for weeks and still not know everything. As an example, he gave us about 5 sheets, each with probably 30-50 vocabulary terms that were all labeling parts of the skeleton, muscular system and skull. We never talked about these sheets or the words on them. And yet, one of these 150-250 terms came up on an exam, in a section that included 5 words that you had to identify. Kind of ridiculous.

Stephen Bailey | ANTH150 - HUMAN EVOLUTION | Anthropology2005-01-28

Review:
This course is very interesting. Bailey is very excited about course material, albeit a bit flaky. Don?t expect him to actually be in his office during his "office hours"...or to show up to class on time. You learn a lot in this course and he encourages class discussion. His enthusiasm for anthro makes up for his somewhat disorganized style outside of the classroom.

Workload:
There were two papers and two quizzes when I took this course during the entire semester. Do the reading and he will be happy with you. Papers are not graded too difficultly and quizzes are fairly straightforward, if not, the curve always helps you out.
