She knows her stuff, but she's also a bit airheaded, so it's sometimes frustrating to take a class with her. However, I think she has worthwhile things to say and has very unique subject matter. She's kind of a hippie, peace love and happiness chick, and if you play into her mode she's pretty easy to please. However, she's also known for her stubborness and sometimes she can be very rigid. Overall, I think she's a bit crazy but I wouldn't let this scare you away from her.

She is a passionate and encouraging teacher. However, her course consisted mainly of mindless busywork and touchy-feely group projects. Her expectations vis-a-vis paper writing are unique, bizarre and often frustrating.

Some of the class work seems like busy work. Papers were on interesting subjects. No tests and quizes are only a small part of the grade in the class.

Deborah expects a lot from her students and simply won't tolerate laziness or apathy. She certainly does have very firm opinions on issues and a particular philosophy which colors the way she looks at the world, but I did NOT find her unwilling to hear other people’s thoughts and beliefs. I feel she is a compassionate woman who cares deeply about the education of her students. She bent over backwards to help me when personal issues made it difficult for me to attend class. I learned a lot from Deborah and am very happy I took her class.

If you’re willing to work hard and learn much, you should definitely take a class from Deborah Winter.

Deborah is incredibly firm set in her ways and cannot see beyond her own nose and view points. She comes off as an open-minded professor, but in reality cannot see other people's perspectives. Even within the department many of the other professors shudder at some of her commentary. Be glad she's leaving.

Introduction to Psychology (Psych 110)

Overall Rating: 9.0

Deborah's Intro to Psych class is structured around different question. Thus you do not just start at the beginning of text book and read it through to the end. Besides the text book Deborah also assigns the book Walden II by B.F. Skinnner. It is a fascinating book that everybody should read.

There are no unit tests, instead you are asked to write papers arguing one side or the other of what ever question was the focus of the latest unit. For example: Do dreams have meaning? Should Head Start programs focus on early literacy?

If you like traditional lectures, tests, and term papers do not take this class.
