Level of Agreement

I believe my academic background was sufficient to succeed in this course.


Comment
- No previous knowledge or background at all
- I enjoyed Prof. Winters teaching style very much and he integrates more contemporary aspects in a theology 1000 course which
met my needs and I loved the course.
The subject matter of this course was of interest to me before the course began.
Comment
- Somewhat interesting, but not to my major
- I was not interested in Theology at first, but after the class started, I was certainly more interested.

What suggestions do you have for improving this course?


Comments
N/A
The course was great!
none
Maybe add some more elements/lectures about religions other than Christianity/Catholicism.
Maybe doing a lot more summarizing of the readings instead of just in the beginning of the class and then straight to powerpoint
I think the midterm material surprised a lot of people. There were a handful of topics that were briefly brought up in passing, but
were never stressed and didn't seem important at the time.
I believe that more in class activities would improve the course a little bit more. I enjoyed all the reading, but I believe less reading
material and more classwork could lead to more attentive students.
I grew up going to Catholic school and have had 13 years now of some type of theology class but I feel like this class would be very
difficult to follow along if you had no prior knowledge about Catholicism. With that being said I do know how hard it is to teach an
intro class with everyone coming in with different experiences and I think that you did do a really good job. Another thing was I
thought the midterm was pretty difficult. It was probably just not used to your testing methods. I think after taking the midterm I am
more prepared for the final but the midterm was a little bit of a shock with how the questions were asked and the level of difficulty.

written comments, qualitative responses are similarly assured of confidentiality.

Comments
Although I feel the most is gained from discussion, unfortunately, there has to be lecture involved since it is a class. Dr.Winter does
an amazing job of finding that balance and making sure that students are not only growing as students in theology but students and
people in general. Dr.Winter has honestly been the highlight of my spring semester here, and I appreciated getting to know him on
a deeper level such as passion for music after class which made me closer to him overall. Truly an amazing professor and person
that deserves nothing but the best, because he teaches with true passion.
Professor Winter goes above and beyond to make sure students feel heard, welcome and encouraged. I find these traits in a proff.
To make or break the course. So, I was very thankful
none
The number of extra credit opportunities was reallyy helpful!
Being a person of no religion, I genuinely enjoyed this course because it challenged my thought process. Professor Winter was an
outstanding professor and he definitely helped me through this course immensely.

Comments
One of the best professors I have ever had, he was always very willing to discuss with and answer students' questions.
Professor Winter, or should I say Dr. Winter, is an amazing teacher! He is so enthusiastic and so passionate about the topic. He is
very knowledgeable and experienced in the topic of Theology and Philosophy. He really respected every student's culture or
religious background. I really think he deserves a full time job as a theology professor at SLU. Thank you for making the class very
fun but also intellectually challenging. I did have a background in theology before this class but I was able to expand my knowledge.
As mentioned in my previous comment, truly a down to earth guy. Super passionate, and that energy makes students WANT to learn
more and participate more. He sees his students as people not students, and treats everyone with pure respect no matter their
background. A one of a kind professor and I am truly lucky to have been taught by him
Loves teaching, great professor.
I enjoyed your enthusiasm for the subject as well as the way you interacted with students.
Ben Winter is a wonderful professor and I would highly recommend taking his course. He is kind, intelligent and open minded. He
meets students at our level and never made me feel uncomfortable regarding course work, etc. He is a great person to talk to and
he explains his lectures on point. I am very thankful I was able to be a part of his course.
Thank you for a great semester! Your enthusiasm for this course really made it much more enjoyable.

Professors Winter always showed up to class with enthusiasm. He is a great listener, and can tackle any tough questions that
students throw at him. Great teacher.
So much enthusiasm, encourages discussion, critique, and has great energy
Professor Winter was an amazing instructor/professor. He was thorough and his ways of teaching definitely made Theology very
easy to comprehend/understand. He is extremely cooperative and will make sure that no student is left confused.
Having a professor who is really interested and enthusiastic about what they are teaching goes a long way. Especially theology, I
had catholic schooling growing up and have had many religion courses so I was not excited for another one but seeing how
encouraging you were as a professor really made me engage more with the work and try harder than I would have.

What suggestions do you have for improving this course?


Comments
None.
The exams were more specific than I thought they would be for an intro level course.
Would prefer some of the quizzes to summarize what we read or ask questions about the text overall as opposed to specific points
from a reading. Sometimes it was difficult to remember specific details, especially with the more difficult readings.
Ensure that professors go more in depth into subjects that may seem easy to them, but may be rather difficult for students who
have not grown up with a religious background. For example, in depth discussion over biblical stories and characters.
This class was very work–heavy and slightly overwhelming for a 1000 level course.
Not sure. I personally enjoyed it a lot.

Please offer any additional comments and/or suggestions you wish to share about the course:
The system does not allow an instructor to connect ANY quantitative responses with an individual student. Unless a student identifies him or herself in the

Winter:

Comments
Professor Winter was an awesome teacher. He made great efforts to hype up theology and succeeded. He was a great guy to
speak to after class about certain religious questions or topics. Overall, I would highly recommend. One of the best professors I've
had.
The class was a good way to introduce theology into the life of someone who isn't from a theological background. Being more on
topic when it comes to powerpoints, obviously Dr. Winter knows it but we never were able to finish the powerpoints on time and that
is what the final and mid term are covering.
Professor Winter was a great professor that kept the class engaged in every lecture and had well–balanced teachings with theology
and also theology in the outside world.
Thank you for your class. I enjoyed it very much!
Professor Winter is very enthusiastic about theology and really enjoys teaching it, often hoping that his students are just as
enthusiastic as he is. He often expected all students to understand "basic" biblical stories and characters from the Bible, however,
many of us did not grow up Christian, making this majority of the course very difficult, hard to understand, and hard to learn when
compared to the students who grew up Christian and went to private Catholic schools.
By far one of my favorite professors at SLU. Made a course that I did not care too much for at first very interesting.
Really awesome teacher! One of my favorite and interesting and easiest class I had this semester. Had lots to think about, and
really reaffirmed myself as a Catholic.
Professor Winter was always encouraging students to participate and engage in the material, which kept people upbeat and
energized in his class.

What suggestions do you have for improving this course?


Comments
Test are quite hard. Readings are also long.
I don't have any suggestions. I liked the class and how it was ran.
I thought the class ran smoothly and I wouldn't change anything.
I was not a fan of Being Christian – I felt the text was a little too simple and it didn't really enhance any of my learning. I felt that a lot
of what it talked about was general knowledge, and didn't really delve any further into any of the topics that we were talking about.
Also, as you know, maybe restructure the lectures a bit with the powerpoints. There was a lot of text on the slides, and we rarely
finished any of them. e
The structural changes for the intro course that are being implemented, according to our professor, will address the issues that I
had with the material covered. The lengthy, Catholic–heavy scripture unit seems unfairly biased towards students, like myself, who
grew up in the Catholic faith.
Possibly a little more studying of the stories in the Bible and what they mean. We did a lot more reading of other books––which
helped–– but knowing more about the Bible would be helpful.
Out of discussion questions, quizzes, and exit tickets I feel the quizzes probably helped my understanding of the material the least.
They make sense to do in order to ensure people did the readings so I wouldn't get rid of them completely but maybe incorporate
the other two more often? Especially the discussion questions as I felt those probably helped the most in engaging with the
material. Also for me personally the second half of the semester was more interesting than the first half of the semester so if there
was a way to cover topics from the second half of the semester more often throughout the whole semester that may be engaging
overall as I feel the material in the second half of the material incites more discussion.
Maybe a little less discussion and a little more instruction/lecture.
Although I love talking about anything ever with Professor Winters, we do not finish a lot of presentations. But note it is because of
discussion not pointless digression. Also, there HAS to be more time spent on studying various religions. Or, have various religion
courses that can satisfy the THEO1000 requirement. Although I understand SLU is a private jesuit institution, they need to educate
everyone about every religion in order to be culturally competent.
In all honesty, Professor Winter's class structure and teaching is great the way it is. Everyone that talks about his class, including
me, shows general interest, happiness and learns newfound information. (Like everyone suggests his class. That’s how I found
out he's a good teacher, plus his rate my professor).

I know the theology department wants to change the course structure, but if possible, he should NOT change the structure of his
class. If his class structure was to change, I think his class will lose a bit of its magic if he isn't teaching what’s most passionate to
him. It’s really cool when he gets riled up lol. People sharing their passions is pretty awesome.

As far as his teaching, I guess get through PowerPoints more? I’m just making things up because I really don’t have real criticism.
It’s great already!

Comments
I have no further comments at this time.
I really enjoyed the discussion groups! I felt this was a super great way for us to be involved and talk about the text in a setting that is
a little less intimidating than in front of the whole class. I really liked the novels we read – I felt that was a great medium for us to
expand our theological knowledge.
The content that we covered in the first few weeks of the course, discussing and analyzing theological arguments about the
existence of a higher being, seems much more useful for students and it provides an even playing field for students of all faith
backgrounds.
I liked the class, content, and discussions
I thought that the course was very informative and interactive and appreciated the open nature of the discussions.
I loved taking this class and Professor Winters made class very enjoyable. Professor Winters is one of the best professors I have
taken at SLU and honestly I am very upset I most likely won't be in his course in the future.
Professor Winter should be offered a full time position after his PHD program with a significant raise.

He is the embodiment of a great professor in every aspect; he is caring, passionate, knowledgeable, helpful, hilarious, interesting.
If there was a particularly interesting part in class, then he will reflect and email you his thoughts after class. Not that you ask him to,
but he is willing to further learning and conversations outside of class.

Additionally, he is open to hearing ALL experiences of his students. Although he is strongly Catholic, he understands the views of
atheists, agnostics, protestants, hindus, etc. He doesn't just listen but he hears us, which is very special in this world.

There has never been one boring lecture or class and I am very grateful for that.

Questions about the Instructor Ben Winter (Comments)


The instructor communicated ideas and information clearly.
Comment
- Professor Winter was really good with communicating upcoming assignments and quizzes. He also helped us when we had
questions.
- Always. And if you didn't understand, he wad quick to talk to you for 20+ minutes after class.
The instructor demonstrated enthusiasm for the subject matter.
Comment
- I can tell he has a passion for this subject.
- Everyday he shows enthusiasm. He really loves what he studies and it shows in each stride, from walking into the classroom to
the quick rants he has :)
The instructor provided feedback/critique that helped me with subsequent work in the course.
Comment
- On every paper, exit ticket, quiz, discussion questions. Always provided feedbackIn all honesty, your class structure and teaching is
great the way it is. Everyone that talks about your class, including me, shows general interest, happiness and learns newfound
information. (Like everyone suggests your class. That’s how I found out you’re a good teacher, plus your rate my professor). I know
the theology department wants to change the course structure, but if you can, DON’T! I think your class will lose a bit of it’s magic if
you aren’t teaching what’s most passionate to you. It’s really cool when you get riled up lol. People sharing their passions is pretty
awesome. As far as your teaching, I guess get through PowerPoints more? I’m just making things up because I really don’t have
real criticism. It’s great already!
The instructor treated students with respect.
Comment
- Always. And if he thought he was offensive, he quickly apologized and tried to hear your side.
The instructor was available for assistance when needed.
Comment
- Always.
- Gave us office hours, his number. Emails back SO QUICKLY. All in all, he is a great communicator.

AMAZING!!!
Ben Winter is definitely a high quality professor that best exemplifies SLU's mission of higher purpose, greater good.
I thought the class ran smoothly and I enjoyed the everyday activities of the class.
You were one of my favorite professors I have had during my time here at SLU! You are funny, kind, and genuinely are interested in
our education – something that I have found rare in my college education. Thank you so much!
Awesome professor. Professor Winter clearly cares about his students, he was always willing to give feedback!
Ben likes to get off–topic from the content of the slides in his lectures, but it's all in good faith. He's very very enthusiastic about
theology, and he provides a very inviting environment for all students to succeed in.
It was all great. I would keep the order of things that we have gone through.
I did not think I would particularly enjoy theology but the way Professor Winter structured the class along with the material he
selected made the class very interesting and made look forward to my next theology class I take next semester.
I loved professor winter. he was so understanding and respectful to his students and it was very refreshing to have a professor be
so invested in his students' success. i would recommend him to anyone looking to just have great discussions and learn new
things in a fun and informative way
Professor Winter was extremely enthusiastic about the subject matter throughout the entire semester and ignited a lot of passion
and enthusiasm in the students as well.
Best Professor here at SLU. Professor Winters demonstrated care for his students and that is the most important over everything.
I don't know how to say this more, but he really is fantastic. I've never had a professor who was this amazing. It really shows that he
cares with each powerpoint, lecture, talk, novel, and session.

Professor Winter,

you are truly one of a kind. Please don't change anything in class and stay true to yourself.

What suggestions do you have for improving this course?


Comments
I think some of the readings were extremely long/dense. I would suggest either reading them in class together (if possible) to
ensure maximum understanding, or that Professor Winters make time in class to go over it with students and ensure they
understood it more, instead of heading straight to discussion/lecture.
The study guide was helpful for the test. Keep doing that!
None it was an amazing class.
Nothing. Good Job!
To improve this class, I am suggesting to keep everything the same.
It was a good course, but there was just too much reading. Especially with drama of scripture, which often didn't feel very helpful.
N/a
Less weekly quizzes and maybe less books to read. Some of the books didn't seem to relate to the course that well.

Please offer any additional comments and/or suggestions you wish to share about the course:
The system does not allow an instructor to connect ANY quantitative responses with an individual student. Unless a student identifies him or herself in the
written comments, qualitative responses are similarly assured of confidentiality.

Comments
I really enjoyed being able to read different kinds of texts about religion; like, we read some stuff from St. Augustine and the Bible but
we also read Phillip K. Dick and C. S. Lewis. I appreciated the variety, but I heard from friends that theology was going to be
standardized. That would really disappoint me, as I enjoyed the content of the class. Just wanted to put that out there.
I really loved how the course did not just focus on the factual and historical content of theology. The course used texts and writings
from other authors that helped create a more interesting and developed subject matter. It allowed me to see different perspectives
and learn about new things.
N/A
N/a
The lecture portion was a little boring and maybe somehow add in a more interactive lecture or try to get through the powerpoint in
the time available.
I enjoyed the course, I learned more in this course about catholicism than I have in a while. It made me look into my faith and
answered many of the questions I had. I also am better able to explain my faith to others.

Comments
Professor Winters REALLY loves theology, and it shows. His enthusiasm could be contagious sometimes. He's read a ton, and is
obviously extremely knowledgable, but every time a student brought up an interesting/new point on the reading, he was super open
to discussion. I liked him a lot, and recommended him to friends.
Ben Winter does a great job teaching the course by providing the necessary tools to help me better understand theology.
I loved this class
a good dude.
I feel like the professor can talk a little bit too much at times when it's the students' time to talk (i.e., on discussion days), which can
drown out any potential contributions that other students might want to make.
Ben Winter is enthusiastic and passionate about his teachings. He made sure he knew every students name and got to know us
throughout the semester. He showed that he cares about his students and is concerned about their lives and wellbeing. He
motivated us to consider his teachings of theology, whether students agreed or disagreed with it, he never judged or tried to
convince people to think like a Christian, he just wanted his students to learn and understand a perspective that they might have not
thought about before. I myself am a Roman Catholic and even after attending theology classes my entire life, I was still able to learn
new things and look at religion in a different way than before. His style of teaching is unique and encouraging. The readings that
were assigned were so interesting and added flavor to what could be a slightly boring subject. He always responded to emails
quickly and contacted us if we missed class so that we could make up the points from the day. I also enjoyed how he graded things.
He was timely and gave feedback, both complimentary and critical. He always made time to stay after class and continue the usual
lively discussion with us. He always gave us opportunities to improve our grade. Ben helped me become a better student and I
have recommended him to nearly everyone I know. I would definitely take his course again. I cannot say enough to show how great
he was!

–Erin Krippene
Professor Winter is truly a treasure. He has a strong passion for the material that makes the class enjoyable. He allows room for
different opinions which is important so that all voices can be heard. The structure in which he taught the class was unique but it
worked very well for me and seemingly other students in the course. He allowed students to personally engage with the material
which is where the true learning occurs. Professor Winter is undoubtedly one of the best professors I have had so far at SLU.
A great professor that I will recommend to everyone taking theology! Very understanding and helpful.
When a teacher is enthusiastic about the subject they teach, it allows students to be more engaged. Ben winter did a wonderful job
of this.
Prof. Winter is both a caring and intelligent professor who seems always willing to work with his students and field their questions
or thoughts
Professor Winters is deeply committed to teaching and expressing theological teachings in ways which are accessible to all
people, not just those from Catholic backgrounds. The projects were the most relevant and engaging part of the class. I, a former
Christian, wanted to delve deeper into parts of Christianity which I had previously dismissed as irrelevant for further consideration.
He is very passionate and knowledgeable in his field. The ways he would share a message can be interesting sometimes.

Comments
Really enjoyed this course!
I feel like Winter assigned way too much reading at certain points in the year, particularly around midterms and testing dates, that
made it difficult to try to get work done for his class specifically. And even though his syllabus says he will take into account multiple
religious view points, the class is definitely catered to a Christian––specifically Catholic––point of view that at times made me
uncomfortable as a non–Christian.
Was kinda confusing timeline, didn't feel like things flowed together. Reading The Divine Invasion was probably the only thing I liked
about this course. The other readings just confused me or I felt they had nothing to do with what we were learning. I also studied
very much for the midterm and didn't do well because some questions were very specific on things we glossed over, so maybe the
expectations of what to know should be clearer.
Some of the readings didn't seem like they went with the material that was lectured in class. I also think that the quizzes and
discussion questions and exit tickets should be put in through the course of the semester instead of all at once at the end of the
semester so I have an idea what my grade is.
I would recommend that this intro class have a basic curriculum, and then the professors can vary it based on that given curriculum.

Comments
An absolutely fantastic teacher. Made my experience with Theo 1000 a truly wonderful time.
One of the most enthusiastic and well–prepared teachers I have ever had. I thoroughly enjoyed his class.
Winter is a really nice and enthusiastic professor. Despite having a 9am class he made it engaging enough that I didn't want to fall
asleep every single day. Definitely caters to Christian/Catholic students as opposed to teaching and giving examples from a variety
of religions. Good professor, just needs to work on being more worldly and open–minded.
It was uncomfortable to be a Lutheran in the class. I understand his comments about them based on his experience; however, I still
felt a bit uncomfortable sharing my background which was very different than his.
Great teacher. He is very enthusiastic about his lessons and is able to brake down complex ideas in a way that makes it more
understandable.
Definitely a nice guy and very enthusiastic! I feel though he assumes everyone is as interested as he is, and so I struggled a little bit
to keep up in class.
Professor Winter is very enthusiastic about theology which made him very engaging and fun to listen to when he lectured.
Professor Winter is awesome and super enthusiastic. The only thing I would recommend is fewer readings or shorter readings. I
also found many of the readings very difficult to grasp, but that was intellectually challenging as well, so I enjoyed it in a way.
The best teacher I have had in college so far hands down. Not to mention he is a great person as well.
Professor Winter is extremely passionate about theology, which helped make this class both enjoyable and interesting. He provided
us with opportunities to make suggestions about the class, and he implemented several of them. I greatly appreciated this since
many professors will not extend this opportunity to students.
Loved how enthusiastic Professor Winter was. He really loves Theology and making sure his students understand what is going
on. I appreciated all the extra credit opportunities as well. By far my favorite class this semester because he made it very enjoyable
to attend class.

Comments
The title of this course was a little confusing. Upon registration I was under the impression that the course was about foundations
similar to all religions and building a common framework. It was only after attending that I learned the course was predominantly
about Christian theology and teachings. I would suggest renaming the course to better reflect the subject matter to avoid confusion
with any future students.
There were too many long readings – I made a consistent effort (and succeeded) in completing every reading by the due date but I
found myself losing interest quickly in many of the harder, more difficult readings that used harder more difficult language. While I
recognize the purpose of the readings as being important to convey a message or understand a theological concept, I feel that
assigning more than 20 pages of an centuries old readings dissuades anyone without a strong enthusiasm from enjoying or
learning from the work. I genuinely tried to faithfully read every word of every reading, but some pieces were so incredibly dry that I
found myself reaching the end of a page with only a partial understanding of what was said and a lack of motivation to reread the
page to improve my understanding. This issue could be solved with shorter readings, or maybe split up more, or with added
summaries to aid in understanding. I feel that there is a better optimal balancing of the length of readings with the interest students
will have with them.

I defintely very much enjoyed the science fiction novels – would highly recommend continuing and even expanding this section of
the course. However, it was a very big pet peeve of mine that during PowerPoints the instructor would partially spoil important plot
elements for future readings by revealing details that won't be known until later. I would recommend that the instructor not say
anything about any detail in the story that hasn't been revealed up until that point in the assigned reading – I just really hate spoilers
and I can't help but feel like the entire book is ruined if I know of even one spoiler.

Comments
He was very personable and approachable. Often provided feedback and answers that went into greater depth than required of his
job (this is a positive). This level of detail and enthusiasm was appreciated.
Professor Winter is an amazing professor. He is very interested and enthusiastic about what he teaches which makes learning in
his class so much better. He is very clear about what needs to be done in class and he offers many insights and further discussion
to what we talked about in class. He is a great guy to talk to and overall one of my favorite professors that I have had in my time here
at SLU. I am glad I took his course and I would take another class taught by him in an instant.
He knows what he is talking about, but goes on rants often.
Obviously very passionate at what the instructor does, and very open to the fact that many do not share his beliefs nor his
enthusiasm for the material. Would recommend this professor to other students.
Very passionate about the subject and made the class fun
I thoroughly enjoyed having Professor Winter as my instructor. He contributed enthusiasm, humor, and personal anecdotes into
every class which made it much more engaging. It is easy to see that he is truly passionate about theology and all of his students.
He was extremely welcoming and encouraging of everyone, regardless of religious background. His personality and composure is
unrivaled in the classroom. Gold star worthy!
Very enthusiastic into the material, and would share experiences/stories that would help to imagine the teachings of the class
visually in order to help in learning the material.
Professor Winter was good. No complaints.

Comments
Requiring this class for all students was a bit intimidating to me due to my lack of a religious background. However, once in this
class, with this professor, I learned so much about religious beliefs and my own ideas or opposition to religion. It opened my mind
to things I had been closed off to. The class was structured so well with the daily assignments, and the professor was always
available to discuss my ideas.
I thought the course was very interesting and Professor Winter challenged the class to think outside of the box and to really think. I
was skeptical about the course at first, but ended up enjoying it in the end.
Course was experimental due to instructor's first time teaching class.
I struggled in this class because it was not like any theo class I've ever taken. The outside readings were kind of ridiculous.
I believe that the content of this course should be changed in order to reflect the fact that it is a course about the foundations of
Theology. I found that the course content was advanced, particularly concerning the prior knowledge of those who have not received
any form of Catholic education. The course went too deeply into subjects that are not necessarily the most important when it comes
to giving those who do not know about the Catholic faith an idea of what it is all about. I believe that this class should be a way to
evangelize to students who are not sure about the Catholic faith, and that was not the emphasis I saw in the class that I took. The
teacher was good, however. He was always lively and engaged and it was clear that he was excited about what he was teaching.
He also made a very good effort to meet students where they were and provide them with more resources to do further research on
topics that were interesting to them. He did a great job!
A pretty good intro course. I didn't want to take more theology, but this class was actually very interesting.

Ben Winter is a exceptional professor for this class. His enthusiasm for the subject if infectious, and his comments and notes on
assignments and papers always add something special.
Mr. Winter, was a wonderful presence in leading discussion about theological readings, debates, and novels that were required for
the course.
I really appreciated the way that he would welcome people to challenge him and ask questions because I had a lot.
Awesome professor!! He made the class fun and interesting and always made us feel like we could voice our thoughts and
opinions freely. I really enjoyed his class and I would definitely take another one of his classes.
Ben was awesome but some of the materials or outside work was not sure theological. I would have liked to learn more about
different religions or more theological topics.
As I said before he is a great teacher in the sense that he was always excited to share his knowledge of the course material. I feel
confident that he will only continue to improve his teaching tactics as he continues to teach more sections of this course. I am glad
to have been able to learn in his classroom this semester.
Professor Winter did a great job. He was fun, engaging, well prepared, and knew the material inside and out. HE was able to
explain complex ideas with ease and patience. He encouraged us to think outside the box and challenge any previously held
beliefs, but did so in a safe environment so we could grow. He always had a big smile on face that made you feel welcome and he
didn't shy away from tough subjects, especially in an environment with people from so many different religions and understandings
of a higher power. He allowed Atheists the same rights as Catholics and was able to explain things in ways that didn't feel like
doctrine being handed down, but rather with religion being this living thriving thing accessible by everyone. I know we are his very
first solo class, and I think he did a great job. Once he gets all the kinks in his material worked out, he's going to be an even better
teacher and a valuable asset where ever he teachers.
You have super quick response times, you give positive feedback only, and you are just overall a good teacher. Don't let the mid–
term grade make you sad, without the curve I still got an 85%, so you cannot be the only one to blame. I do think that less free
response would be appreciated though. :) Keep up the good work!

The first half of the semester was rocky, and there were way too many long reading assignments that weren't realistic to complete in
time. the second half improved a lot, though.
I feel like a learned a ton of stuff from this class and look forward to taking more classes like it.
On the third or so day allow the students 10 or so minutes to read so they can realize that the reading isn't too bad or overwhelming.
Because there is a lot of reading over the course of the semester.
none
I think the course successfully covered many important theological topics. However, certain topics could have been focused on for
longer than others.
I do not think it is fair for all students to be required to take this course. For a student like me, who did not grow up learning about
christianity, the material was much harder to understand that it would have been for students who either grew up in the religion, or in
a religion that has some similarities to it. I don't think forcing students to take a course on religion follows the movement on
inclusivity that SLU strives for. This university does not preach that it is a catholic institution, it preaches that it is a jesuit institution.
That is why I think it would make more sense to make the fundamentals of theology class a class where we learn about the history
of the jesuits, rather than study the Bible/christianity.

Amazing professor! Ben shows so much passion when it comes to theology, and he loves his students and wants them to
succeed. He gives such good feedback to students and is incredibly nice and engaging with students. Class was usually super fun
and interesting, as were most of the assignments. I went into this class dreading theology, but I have gained a newfound respect for
theologians and theology. I would love to take another class taught by Ben! One thing I would recommend is not trying to cover as
much material during the first half of the semester, as it got overwhelming (coming from someone who doesn't know much about
theology and was totally lost at some points). The daily readings were also a bit too long sometimes, as well. However, that might
just be me and my awful reading skills.
Great course, my only critique is split the midterm so the class has 3 tests instead of 2. The midterm in my opinion had too many
very specific questions spread across a lot of time and materials covered.
Very into his subject. Enjoyable and very helpful
Professor Winter's enthusiasm for the course was some of the most I've ever seen. It was obvious that he really enjoys theology
and that inspired me to learn more from his class.
Professor Winter was the best and he really managed to make me look forward to his class. I loved his teacher style! He is also just
genuinely a great man.
He was a great professor, he knew his stuff very well and made the class exciting to go to.
Professor Winter was a very great professor. He understood what he was teaching very well and always encouraged discussion.
He was very respectful of opposing views and always willing to listen and discuss, even outside of class time. I was often confused
with the content because I had no background or knowledge of the subject matter; Professor Winter was understanding and helped
me as much as he could. Very passionate about the topics he taught, which always made class entertaining and engaging.
One of my favorite professors at SLU in my short time here. Ben is always positive, energetic, and willing to help whenever he can.
Outstanding professor, and an even more outstanding human being.
I've been in Catholic school since I was 6. I am now 20, and this was THE best religion class I have ever taken. What makes this
different from the rest is the professor, Ben Winter. He is fantastic; he shares his broad expanse of knowledge with a an even wider
smile. He made this class so enjoyable, I would consider a minor in theology if he taught all my classes. Ben Winter was the key to
my learning and interest this semester, and is one of my favorite teachers ever.
Mr. Winter was very understanding and wanted all of his students to succeed and better understand the topics studied. His passion
for theology was evident in his lectures.
Mr. Winter was a very passionate teacher who did a fantastic job understanding the needs of his students and being
accommodating to them, while still being fair to the rest of the students.
Fantastic instructor! Very engaging and clearly passionate about the subject.

SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: I enjoyed your class. :)
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: He was very straight forward about what exactly we
were going to be tested on, which was very helpful when it came to studying.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: As having Ben Winter for only three class periods, I still
felt that I had learned more in his discussion class than I did in the big lecture.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: Ben did a great job at making the discussion
interesting and providing feedback on papers that was constructive.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: Ben is a great discussion teacher. He engages in
interesting discussions with his students and he is very enthusiastic.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: Mr. Winter is one of the best teachers I have ever had.
He was always available when needed and clearly articulated what was expected.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: I think its more beneficial to have big froup discussions
instead of small group. Often its hard to come up with questions for the class, so if the teacher could guide the
questions and discussions that'd be a lot better.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: He's fantastic.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: Take his class!
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: He was very passionate and knowledgable about

SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: I had professor Winter for a short time, and he did an
amazing job! Especially for being put on the spot to pick up all the extra work given the circumstances surrounding. I
applaud him and professor Hussey for doing such great jobs.
SP2017 THEO-1000-01-Theological Foundations - Ben Winter: Professor Winter is an ecstatic individual who really
takes pride in his work and does his due diligence wholeheartedly. It would have been easier for Professor Winter to
have instructed the course completely to avoid miscommunication between Father Meconi and the class content. I
greatly appreciated Professor Winter's listening skills when I shared my thoughts and beliefs on a topic. Thank you
Professor Winter for working with me when I needed someone to understand.

grade like an english teacher/ professor.

seemed to want his students to enjoy the material and succeed.
