Simon is a very good lecturer and easy grader, but he has no filter when it comes to his personal political opinions. Class time is spent by him going on tangents about the upcoming elections and current events, and his personal opinions on them, and hardly ever discussing the dense and long …more material he assigns for reading. 11 novels per quarter. less

Rich is one of the worst professors I've had. He expects much from his assignments, but brings nothing to lecture. He doesn't have any lesson plan during class, but instead just moves tangentially from one political agenda and rant to the next. Rich knows this and doesn't think it should be …more different. He shouldn't be teaching upper-divisions. less

Rich is the best professor I have had at western, hands down. He is so passionate about the subject and is not afraid to tell it like it is. He swears some in class, so if you don't like that, you might not be comfortable with him, but I thought it just made him feel more authentic and honest. Wish …more I could take his class ten times over. less

Rich is cool guy, but a bad professor. The class had little-to-no structure. In class, we would move from one quasi-environmental topic to another instead of having an actual lecture. He expects a tad much for not being really helpful. If you are looking to get something out of this class, then I'd …more recommend taking it with another professor. less

I hated this professor. Hated goin to class. Being there made me mad. Zero structur and organization. Hypocritical of students dealing with our work and our reading. You read 4 books, write 1 response paper aweek thatthe TA grades, 12 page term paper(that has no structure and that he hardly helped …more with at all) He's useless as a professor. less

Rich is fabulous! The great part about rich is that he tells it like it is . He is honest. Class is enjoyable because he shares personal experiences that are very valuable to an author or writer he also has very valuable Insight in the publishing world and how to get published. Class exercises are …more fun and done in a group I recommend him less

Rich doesn't sugar coat anything. He's also a rock journalist and played guitar and bass in a number of bands. I think that says more about his personality than anything else. He's an awesome guy who gives you help on whatever you need. We spent two hours one time going over guidelines to a paper …more because a few people had questions about it. less

He was very humorous, had a very laid back style. He was extremely helpful when it came to papers. I'm taking him again! He really wants students to succeed!

Really an awesome person and a very helpful instructor. I'm not the best writer and he really answered my questions without making me feel stupid. My whole class really liked him as well as myself and most are taking him again!
