Subject: Amazing Teacher  (Nov 13 2013, 02:30AM)

 Dr. Bertram is an amazing teacher. She puts things into terms that you can understand and has a nice sense of humor. All you have to do is put some effort into her class and you will get an easy A. She does get frustrated when people do not pay attention or use their cell phones in class...but it is a classroom setting, if you want to use your cell phone then step outside. You do have to have good attendance and read the book or you will fall behind and not understand. As long as you take good notes, study, and attend class you will do well.

 Seriously? Are we even talking about the same prof? She teaches exactly what is on the exams effectively, and breaks up her lectures nicely with video clips and stories. I thought she was a lovely and very understanding woman.

 I have only had her for 5 weeks so far but I must say she is the only person I look forward to out of my 5 class day. She is intelligent and insightful. She is there to help if needed and yes she may be opinionated but I have never had a problem with her not listening to me. I only got a B on my first exam, however I did no reading so that would explain it. Out of all of my other profs she is the best. For anyone to call her bad or terrible is preposterous. The only reason you probably didn't like her is because you were a lazy student. Take the notes and show up and you will be fine.

 She is a very nice lady and her classes are fun. She makes jokes sometimes which makes class enjoyable. The only downside is that the exams are fairly difficult, but I didnt really study that much so that's my fault. Other than that I highly recommend her.

 You all are ridiculous. Dr Bertram was nice, available, and expected a lot of work. I think all profs should operate like she does. I have learned the most out of all the Psych courses from her class. Yes, she expects you to do the readings, come prepared to class, take notes, and apply the material. That is what ALL professors should expect. And if you can't handle that (like the above sure can't seem to) then you expect college to be too easy and you aren't learning a thing.

Class:general psych (A)

 Prof. Bertram is pretty good for General Psych. Her class is simple. You show up everyday, take notes while she lectures. Once a week she will show a video clip or a brief movie. She uses examples that you can relate to that will help you understand. There are 5 tests, and a paper. The paper is easy and it is only 25 points. She curves all of the tests, and you can go to her office to study. They are all formatted the same way. She also drops your lowest test grade. She is not bad to listen to. I would recommend her.

Class:General Psychology (B)

 General Psychology was both mine and Prof. Bertram's first class at Ship. At 8AM. Maybe it was because it was her first class, or because I took this class in high school, but I didn't think it was that bad. It was pretty easy if you took notes, which I just copied what was written on the power points, and showed up. There were a few easy group assignments and a couple short papers. The papers were actually pretty interesting to write, and I suck at writing, but I managed to get A's and B's on the papers. Bertram gave a lot of real life examples to help the students connect the theories in the book to something more concrete. All in all, it was an easy class.

Subject: Hope you don't have an opinion.  (Oct 23 2010, 08:12AM)
Student: Anonymous (Criminal Justice)
Class:General Psychology (--)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Dr. Bertram is a biased witch who only likes brown nosers. She constantly opens the floor for debate then shuts down each individual who disagrees with her. She gets enraged very easily and gives no consideration to those who are different than her. She evidently confuses speculation with facts and when she is wrong about answers on exams she does not correct them. The questions she proposes are interesting but she seems to refuse to recognize that psych is a social science and provides no hard evidence about the individual. Dr. Bertram: those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

 Professor Bertram is very opinionated, and you can cut the tension with a knife in the classroom if anyone speaks out against anything she believes in. Being told that my opinions were to stay out of a classroom, I don't believe that a professor's opinions should be permeating the air either. I wouldn't take her, just because I'd rather learn than be indoctrinated.

Subject: Prepare to feel threatened  (Oct 07 2010, 05:31AM)
Student: Anonymous (Psychology)
Class:Multicultural Psychology (--)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Dr. Bertram is definitely a hard professor, which I do not mind. Her class requires a lot of work and I do not mind that either. What I mind is the way she accuses the class of not caring about other cultures and the fact that she concentrates so much on the way African American and homosexual people are discriminated against. She is constantly talking about it and accusing the class of discriminating. In one class, she screamed at the class and pounded on desks because we weren't taking notes on questions that we were discussing. I thought we were in college and didn't have to take notes if we didn't want to? Don't we pay to take her class? I'm still in the class right now but I am considering withdrawing because I cannot stand to feel threatened by her anymore. I dread going to her class because of the discrimination I feel.

Subject: Not a Good Prof  (Apr 10 2010, 04:53AM)
Student: Anonymous (Psychology)
Class:Social Psych (C+)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Dr. Bertram is new to the psych department, and it's obvious the way she handles class. Not only are her quizzes hard but you have to do them with a group and she only gives you 20 minutes for a large quiz that should take all class. You have to study the book for the quizzes or you have no chance. She also treats you like a child and makes you put all your books, cell phones ect in the front of the room on quiz days and she demands that you only use a pen, no pencil. She grades the 2 papers that are worth 50% of your grade very harshly. I have never gotten below a B in any class in my 3 years at Ship, but thanks to her I have. Her class is boring and not worth while, take someone else.

Subject: DO NOT TAKE HER!!!  (Nov 03 2009, 02:33PM)
Student: Anonymous (Elem. Ed)
Class:General Pyschology (--)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Her class is impossible!! If you take her, don't expect a good grade. I paid attention in every class and took good notes. I studied my notes and the book for hours before her exams and the highest grade I received on my exams was a D. You have to pretty much memorize the chapters to be able to get a good grade on her tests. She is very unorganized and always changes her mind on things. Tests are given on Mondays and she gives you a study guides on Friday nights...there goes your weekend! There are 2 papers and 4 exams...that's it. So if you do bad on those things, you have no chance!
