    I was nervous to take Professor Daniels after reading his reviews, but I could have not been anymore wrong. Daniels is very caring and made many accommodations for me so that I could succeed in his class. Papers were very easy to do if you took the time to pay attention in class and do the readings. Participation is key. I enjoyed my class with him

    Don't take this class please! Prof. Daniels seems like a very genuine man who is passionate about what he teaches but his lessons are so lecture heavy! Not to mention that over SPRING BREAK, he assigned an 8 page paper and a group essay + a separate essay where you explain what you contributed to the assignment.

    I don't think I learned a single thing in that class because I was so confused the entire time. The papers are honestly not that difficult if you know how to BS 2-3 pages about ethnographies. What really pisses me off is the fact that he simply does not explain a single thing that will be in tests, essay questions, and projects in his lectures.

    Unless you doing ethnography later in life, never take this class. Lectures nonstop with no engagement to keep you interested, gives little to no feedback for improvement, doesn't accept late work no matter the context, forces you to read his book for finals, and is hard to follow in hw and projects. All in all Daniels is the absolute worst.

    I'll put it simply (and I am not one to complain): unless you a.) want to take a class taught by an narcissistic lunatic who talks about himself all the time and makes you buy his book (and be tested on it), b.) want to meet someone who likes it their way or the Cross-Bronx Expressway, or c.) really need these three credits, DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!

    Absolutely DO NOT take this course unless youre going into a career that requires you to do so. This professor is the worst Ive had at Hofstra and I wish I dropped him when I had the chance. He assigns an ungodly amount of reading every class, then talks about his past for 80% of the class time. The amount of written work he gives is stupid.

    This professor is by far the worst professor I have had at Hofstra. He has no concept of how much work he assigns, and does not give enough time to complete it. I took this professor for a summer class(he did not do zoom sessions )Instead, he did short recordings that were repetitive and boring. GPA definitely took a hit thanks to his inadequacies

    I slept so well in his class. His voice and lecture just puts students to sleep. He assigns too much work and has very vague directions. Do not take him, his class isn't worth it. He also grades unnecessarily hard. If you have him withdraw from the class. It is hilarious seeing how everyone does work from other classes during his lectures.

    Professor Daniels is one of the hardest professors I've had. I took this class as a late semester course, and I get that all late start courses are hard. However, this class left me in tears and I barely made it through. 4 papers that you have to present in front of the class, a final that's mostly essay based. Get ready to teach yourself.

    This class alone has more work than my other four classes possibly combined. The papers and tests are of ridiculous length and the professor has done extremely little in the way of teaching us. It's almost as if the students have to teach ourselves while he assigns loads of work.

    Worst class and professor you could possibly take at the university. He is so unbelievably boring and almost all work is based on his opinions. The books he assigned were okay, but he expects an unreasonable amount of work from each student. Avoid him at all costs.

    His class is an absolute waste of time. If you study you get your A, but how pointless and useless the class material was and not to mention, how much time he wastes during lecture. His lectures follow no coherent train of thought. If you value your time, just choose a different professor. You will enjoy your semester more.

    Horrible notes that don't make sense, expects you to to have a vast knowledge of anthro prior to taking his intro class. No real material is covered in class, just open discussion. When your first 8 page paper is due within 4 days of it being assigned you have no idea what you're writing about and you're struggling. It distracts you from your major

The midterm and final are so hard and they're only available 2-3 days before they're due. Three essays for the midterm, and four essays for the final. Absolutely ridiculous amount of work, AND it's boring stuff

    Daniels isn't the WORST you can get in C+E, but he's not too far. Says on day 1 of class he doesn't want to teach the course, and from then forward he just talks the whole time. Four papers, but he gives you the topic days before the paper is due and seems to grade at random based on how early you turn it in. Seemed amused by my antics, though.

    He can not teach. He does not know how to elaborate either. Of course I passed the class, but I studied hard. All the exams are short responses eassays. The PowerPoint are nothing. He talks about a topic goes off the topic then comes back. It's hard to pay attention. He just can not teach. Doesn't care that you have other classes. To much work. No
