Department: Languages

Courses Taught by Professor Goodwin:

RUS3452 – Learn More

Student Reviews of Professor Goodwin:

“Of all the professors I’ve seen at UF so far, Professor Goodwin is the best example of what you would expect in a university instructor. He is passionate about his subject, and cares a lot about the students. Do the assigned readings and look over the study guides, and you’ll do well on the tests. I’d definitely recommend his class!”

“Dr. Goodwin is a model professor. I’ve taken him 4 times now in both Russian Language and Literature. He is accessible, understanding, caring, and clearly loves what he teaches. I think that he’s by far the best professor that I have had at UF. I have received A’s in all of his classes, and I would not characterize them as very hard.”

“I’ve taken 3 of his classes and am signed up for my 4th for next semester. I would take anything he is teaching. SUPER understanding!! Embodies everything a professor should be.”

2. Ingrid Kleespies

Professor of Languages at university of florida ingrid kleespies

Rating: 5.0
Department: Languages

Courses Taught by Professor Kleespies

RUS1131 – Learn More

Student Reviews of Professor Kleespies

“Extraordinary professor. Incredibly passionate about Russian language/literature and so knowledgeable. Very fair grader as well. Lets students learn at their own pace. Very accessible outside of class and through email. Lots of room for extra credit improvement. Would take again.”

“Best professor ever. Dr. Kleespies is smart and caring. She really wants her students to learn. You can tell she loves teaching! I decided to take two classes with her this semester and I was constantly thinking and practicing. That being said her classes take a lot of work, but if you are willing to put the effort in you will be just fine!”

“I loved this class! It’s hard enough reading War and Peace, but she made the class so interesting that I would gladly read it again. It was difficult reading 50 pages every two days, but completely worth it. She is very knowledgeable on Russian history and literature.”

3. Brandon Fantozzi

Professor of Business at university of florida brandon fantozzi

Department: Business

Courses Taught by Professor Fantozzi

“Dr. Leary was a pretty good teacher and is a great all around guy. If you go into this class treating it like a normal class at UF you should easily get an A just do all the assignments and all the extra credit and your golden.”

“One of the best professors at UF!”

“Dr. Leary is my advisor and has been my professor several times. He is probably the nicest person you will ever meet. He can be vague at times, but has no problem clarifying anything for you. I would recommend taking his class anytime, and talking to him for any problems you have at UF.”

5) Teresa Benitez

Professor of Engineering at university of florida teresa benitez

Rating: 5.0
Department: Engineering

Courses Taught by Professor Benitez

EML3100 – Learn More

“Best prof ever! Never gets boring with her.”

“Benitez is one of the nicest profs I have ever had. The class isn’t easy, but she is always willing to help and will answer emails ASAP. She really knows the material and goes the extra mile to make it easier to understand and remember. She is my favorite prof that I have had so far. Attendance is extra credit on random days. Best class ever.”

6) Kenneth Kidd

Rating: 5.0
Department: English

Courses Taught by Professor Kidd

LIT4930 – Learn More

Student Reviews of Professor Kidd

“Kidd is a very funny and lighthearted professor who likes to make class discussions casual and entertaining. He always chooses fresh YA or kid lit books so they don’t put you to sleep, although I can’t say that about the related articles. He does need full class participation or it gets awkward, and beware of pop quizzes. I’d take him again!”

“Professor Kidd is one of the kindest and most caring English professors at UF! He’s always willing to help, he cares about student opinion, and he grades fairly. If you talk to him during office hours and email him about your essay assignments, he’ll give you feedback until your paper is A worthy. So, be sure to utilize those resources!”

“By far my favorite English professor at UF. He’s funny, engaging, and makes the class interesting by picking books that get the students talking! He’s very thoughtful when grading papers and gives great feedback. The assignments are straightforward. New book every week, but that’s English for you. I will be taking him again and I can’t wait!”

Student Reviews of Professor Saygin

“Probably among the best professors in UF! She made an otherwise theoretical course very pleasing to learn! Excellent teaching skills and extremely knowledgeable in her field! Very clear explanations and her exams are neither too hard or easy! She also offers the occasional extra credit to boost your grade! She made me enjoy learning macroeconomics!”

“Professor Saygin is the best UF teacher. She cares so much about her students and shes very fair and understanding. She’s always there if you need her help. The material is pretty hard so of course you need to study hard. She’s sweet but dont get on her bad side. She’s very real and honest, which is why she’s awesome!”

“UF is lucky to have Dr. Saygin. She cares about you not only being able to pass the class, but also take something away from it. The material is interesting and at a moderate difficulty. If you need help ask, but make sure you pay attention during class because she will call you out. Her exams are fair and the class was a joy to take.”

Notable Research Projects per Faculty at Florida

1) Stopping Fake Pills by Steve Orlando

Examples of pills.

Faculty: Engineering

On the surface, it might seem like the only detriment to taking fake medicine is that you were scammed out of your money. However, there can also be some medical downsides, as well. Orlando’s research has developed a way to detect whether or not pills are what they claim to be.

2) Cancer Cell Growth by Kevin Butler

Using a Smartphone.

Faculty: Engineering

The security of your Smartphone is something every user is concerned about. However, the security is so easily breakable, apparently, that Smartphones are almost always having two users at a time: you and a ghost user. Butler’s research is concerned about cables that people plug into their phones.

3) Vaccination Myths by Amanda Sams Bradshaw

A pregnant woman.

Faculty: Medical Studies

Unfortunately, many people are quick to believe myths about vaccination. However, this leads to dangerous illnesses that could pervade children. Bradshaw’s studies show that if doctors address the myths surrounding vaccination before the baby is born, then the health of the child will be maintained throughout the infancy.

4) Bats and Fireflies by Marc Branham

A firefly.

Faculty: Biology

Despite the wide array of creatures that belong to the diets of bats, scientific researchers noticed one thing that the bats do not eat: fireflies. However, Branham thought that there might be a connection between the two animals that goes way back in their history. He learned that fireflies are not eaten by bats because they developed their lights through evolution to avoid being eaten.

5) Helping Turtles by Cathi Campbell

Aiding a turtle.

Faculty: Conservation Biology

Cathi Campbell’s research surrounds one of the ocean’s most beloved creatures. Their main goal to help these turtles is to help clean up their environments. For example, the scientists removed over twenty-five tons of fishing gear from the environments of the turtles.

The University of Florida boasts “the Swamp” on the athletic fields, but these research projects certainly rise above Swamp-quality.

Tips For Success in AMH2020 at University of Florida

AMH2020 or US History since 1877 is a history class that several UF majors (including Journalism) require as a prerequisite. The course set-up is fairly simple: lecture twice a week and discussion once a week. The class can move kind of fast, but don’t worry, with these tips you shouldn’t have a problem passing the class!

Be Prepared to Learn About History from Before 1877

The official title of the course should be US History since 1865. The first few lectures in the class cover material from Reconstruction, starting right after the Civil War. This material will probably be a review for most students, but don’t just brush off the information. Some of it will likely show up on the midterm, so make sure you have good notes. Even if the exam questions aren’t directly about reconstruction, you can still use reconstruction events to help support points in your essays.

Buy The Textbooks

There are three required textbooks for AMH2020. Since it’s an American History course, some students think they don’t necessarily need to buy all the textbooks. Unfortunately, this is not the case for AMH2020. The final paper and some of the exam questions will cover material from the textbooks that aren’t covered during lecture, meaning you need that specific knowledge. Discussions will also cover a combination of lecture material and textbook material, so in order to participate, you need to read the chapters.

giphy (27)

Show Up For Discussion

Discussion is when all the quizzes in the class take place. The quizzes aren’t announced beforehand, so if you don’t show up you could miss a quiz that you may not be able to make up. You also miss out on easy participation points by skipping discussion. In other words, your attendance record for discussion each week could mean the difference between getting an A or a B at the end of the semester.

giphy (26)

Be Prepared to Write

AMH2020 is a class that requires a lot of writing. There is a final paper at the end of the course. The midterm has an essay that is worth 20 of the exam’s 25 points. The exams also have short answer questions that require about 3-5 sentences worth of information to get full points. At the beginning of discussion, you’ll also have to turn in written summaries of the textbook readings to get full participation points. In other words, you better get used to writing historical essays.

giphy (25)

Check Canvas Often

Canvas can be a very valuable tool in AMH2020, and I don’t just mean to check your grade. Prior to exams, your professor will post a list of example short answers and a list of possible essay questions (one of which will be the essay you write on the actual exam). These questions can be extremely helpful when studying so you don’t feel like you’re going into the exam blind. Canvas is also your go-to for information regarding extra credit at the end of the course.

csm_canvas_logo_5df12ba8de

As you can tell, AMH2020 requires a decent amount of work. The good part is, none of it is necessarily difficult work. If you show up, apply yourself, pay attention and take notes, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t do great! Good luck!

Tips For Success in JOU4201 At UF

JOU4201 (News Center Practicum) is probably one of the most important classes that UF Journalism students can take. The class is great for building field experience and will give students a chance to get their stories published on the WUFT news website. The class requires a lot of work both inside and outside of the classroom, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be able to do quite well.

Manage Your Time Wisely

Over the course of the semester, you’ll do a lot of reporting within the community. You’ll be assigned a zip code at the beginning of the semester and will be responsible for reporting on stories in that area. When you’re writing a new story it’s important to plan ahead of time so you’ll have time to get to your location, interview sources, write the story, and submit it before your deadline. The better you are with time management, the easier the course will be for you.

giphy (21)

Treat The Class Like An Internship

Throughout the course, you’ll probably hear your professor say this pretty often, and that’s because it’s true. Once a week, you’ll have lab in the WUFT newsroom where you’ll work on crafting pitches, writing stories, doing research, finding sources, and editing your work. Your goal in the class is to get your stories published and this leads to valuable experience you can put on your résumé. More often than not you’ll be doing fieldwork outside of class, so treating it like internship work instead of homework will lead to better results when you submit your stories.

giphy (22)

Use Your Editors And Peers To Your Advantage

If you’re having trouble coming up with a pitch or finishing up a story, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Editors are there to assist you if you’re stuck! Another equally valuable resource is your classmates. Sometimes getting a classmate to read and critique your story can be enough to push it to the next level. When in doubt, always get a second opinion!

giphy (24)

Make Sure You Show Up Early For Your Pitch Meeting

During the semester you will sign up for two daily deadline stories. These stories need to be pitched at the pitch meeting, reported on, and published, all before the end of the day. The thing some students forget is that the pitch meeting technically starts before class, so you’ll need to show up in advance to make your pitch. If you show up late you’re only going to look bad, so being early is the best policy.

giphy (23)

Be Sure To Submit Your Stories On Canvas And Gmail

This is something that students tend to have trouble remembering, but technically you have to submit each story twice. You’ll submit one copy to the WUFT Gmail account so it can be uploaded and published and you’ll submit the same story to Canvas for grading. If you just submit to Canvas your story won’t be published, if you just submit to Gmail you’ll get a zero for the assignment. It’s a lose-lose situation, so make sure you remember to submit to both places!

maxresdefault (1)

JOU4201 can be a lot of work. It may seem overwhelming at first since you’re introduced to everything all at once, but once you get through those first couple of weeks you’ll get the hang of everything! With hard work and proper planning, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t do well in the class! Good luck!

3 Tips For Success in POS2041 At University of Florida

Many UF students will probably take POS2041 (American Federal Government) before they graduate. The course is required for several majors, including Political Science, and is suggested for students in other programs like Journalism. The course is designed to help students understand the American political system, it’s origins, and how it has changed over time. The class may seem intimidating at first, but with the right preparation, it won’t be hard to pass! just follow these simple steps:

Be Sure To Read All Of The Assigned Readings

Reading is a pretty big component of being successful in POS2041. Your professor will rarely cover all of the assigned readings during lecture, but just because the material isn’t covered in class doesn’t mean it won’t be on the exam. Reading and taking notes on anything that’s been assigned can be extremely helpful, especially if you are unsure of anything because your professor will be able to help clear up any uncertainties during the lecture. It never hurts to read and be prepared!

giphy (18)

 

Pay Attention To Lectures

The class can be pretty reading heavy, but the lectures are also important. There is a pretty even balance of questions on the exams that relate to material covered in lecture and material covered in readings. Lectures may also cover material that you won’t find in any of the readings, the two are meant to go hand-in-hand. So, paying attention and taking good notes during lectures will save you a lot of trouble when you study for the exams.

giphy (20)

 

Know Your Way Around The Constitution 

While taking POS2041, you’ll be required to take a Constitution exam. This test won’t just cover the amendments, you’ll also be required to have knowledge of the Constitution’s various articles and sections. This knowledge will not only help you do well on the Constitution exam, but it can also be applied to other assignments later in the course. So the sooner you start studying for the Constitution exam, the better!

giphy (17)

 

Don’t Let The Homework Pile Up

The homework assignments in POS2041 generally aren’t too difficult, so it shouldn’t take you a super long time to complete them and get a good grade. But, if you procrastinate, the homework will pile up easily, leaving you playing catch-up. This can lead you to lose points for silly mistakes because you are rushing to get everything done. Get the homework assignments done early so that they’re out of the way and you have time to read the assigned readings before lectures and do homework for other classes.

giphy (19)

 

Stay Up To Date With Current Politics

POS2041 is just as much about the present as it is about the past. Throughout the course, you will also be asked to complete assignments that relate directly to current events. So, having a basic knowledge of what’s going on in U.S. politics will be a big help when researching, and will make these assignments go a lot smoother.

giphy-downsized-large

 

POS2041 is a fascinating class, especially if you are interested in politics or the structure of the U.S. government.  It’s not difficult to succeed in the class as long as you are willing to put in the work. Hopefully, this article will make you more prepared for the class if you ever plan to take it! Good luck!
