This teacher always finds things to take points off. She will always, I repeat, ALWAYS take points off for the smallest things, no matter how well you do your work. Homework, was her just throwing huge articles at us and making us talk about it non stop. If we had questions or conserves, she would rant to the whole class about how no one in the class did the readings and whatnot. DO NOT TAKE HER!

If you would like a teacher who picks favorites in the class, please go with her. She treats students differently based on her own reasons, does not give the same chances to others. She also will never give you 100%, no matter how good your work is, she will always find a reason to take points off. Lectures are basically her talking non stop, and she is not good at explaining.

Pros: -Entertaining lectures, can sometimes still do other things during class if you need to -Gives good feedback -Homework is quick and fairly easy -Pretty easy A, I felt my work was not always my best, but I still did not get below a 93 on any major assignments. Cons: -Homework feels like busywork at times and testbank quizzes felt like they were testing technicalities, rather than major concepts -You cannot find this textbook online anywhere; you just have to pay the money. -Sometimes it felt like no matter what I did, I would always do 'something wrong', which maybe says something about the class expectations. I question if it is even possible to get an A+ in this class given some of the critiques I was receiving on outlines and such. I'd say she deserves like a 4.5/5, but this site does not have that feature, so I'll round up :)

Dr. Soeder is a great professor. The class was one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken. She makes you use your brain and interpret visual artifacts in ways you may not be used to which makes it interesting. Sometimes are feedback on assignments and projects are very confusing but she is willing to answer any questions you may have about her feedback. I recommend taking this class.

Dr. Janna is a fantastic professor who I would recommend to anyone who is taking comm classes in general. She doesn't give too much work just a weekly discussion that shouldn't take more than 10-15 min max (depending on how long it takes you to read the reading) and there are no exams, only 2 presentation assignments. This class is basically an easy A as long as you go to class, raise you hand some, and do the reading responses.

Dr. Soeder doesn’t make this class harder than it needs to be. The grading was really fair and it was pretty easy to get an A. Classes are a bit dry but that is expected from a public speaking class. We were let out 15-20 minutes early every class which was nice. I would definitely recommend taking Dr. Soeder for COMM 107 if you have the chance.

Easy to get an A-, but try hard on your outlines/speeches for an A+. quizzes are easy and you have the textbook.

There are two types of COMM107 professors: those who don’t care about teaching and those who do care. Dr. Soeder is the latter. She is great at providing clear and constructive feedback and is very engaging. I enjoyed showing up to her class and she is an excellent professor. However, she definitely believes that there is no such thing as a perfect outline or presentation. If you truly want to learn in COMM107, then take her. But don’t expect to get an easy A with no effort because she holds her students to a high standard.

She's very transparent with due dates/information and grades quickly (tough grader on outlines, less so on the presentation itself). No reason not to take her.

didn't really love the class in my own opinion, but it was fine. She is very open and engaged. Her feedback is helpful but she will heavillyy critique your outlines even though it's just for comm107. However she graded lighter than expected for the actual presentations (based on how much she would critique the outlines). She's a good professor, I just didn't like the class itself.

Great teacher, super nice, and grades pretty leniently. Her feedback is helpful and she grades in a timely manner.
