TAKE IT ONLINE. This woman/dinosaur was the worst teacher I've ever had, and I mean going all the way back to kindergarten. Her lectures were unclear, incredibly slow and uninteresting, she banned the use of laptops, called out ppl for trivial issues & interrupted our class. The only thing that saved that class were the TAs...bless their souls.

Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: Everything
Her class is incredibly boring and even her TAs know that some of the things she does in class are completely useless. She puts up maps and acts like no one can read what they are about so she details every little thing about the map to you. One time she had the laser pointer in her hand and couldn't find where she was pointing it. HOW CAN YOU EVEN DO THAT WHEN YOU CONTROL WHERE YOU POINT? Do yourself a favor and take Poli 101 with someone else.

Pros: Work is easy, tests are easy, TAs are awesome
Cons: Lecture is BORING
The work isn't hard and as long as you stay up to date on the reading, the tests are also pretty easy. The biggest issue is that Virginia Gray is a really boring lecturer and you really don't need to go to the class to retain the information, but you have to because she gives random attendance assignments.

Professor Gray is very knowledgable on the subject, but her qualifications as a professor end there. She is cold, rude, unfair, and probably couldn't care any less if her students learn. Her tests, which are made by her TAs, are difficult and extremely detailed. Her lectures are among the most boring I've ever sat through and it was a challenge to pay attention even at the front of the class. The paper is tough, but ultimately the grades on it were fair. Don't count on a curve either. All semester my class was told there would be a "big" curve on our final grade and that turned out the be a complete lie; she didn't curve anyone. I would never recommend Professor Gray.

She puts the whole class to sleep and the tests (which are written by self righteous TA) are vague and idiotic. The average on most of the tests given was between 65-75. Do yourself (and your GPA) a favor and take someone else if you can.
