HIST 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-

Dr. MacWade is the best of the best. He's funny and he knows his stuff. He gives you all of the information needed for the essay part of the exams, but you need to look up the ID's on your own time and make sure they include the 5 W's. Come to class early, pay attention, and take good notes; if you're unsure, ask him questions, he will answer them.

I had MacWade my first semester at massasoit and at first his class seemed to be intimidating but as long as you show up, take excellent notes and study youll be fine. He gives out the study guide with the exact questions on the test, I would just memorize the material and recieved an A. Not mention he's kind of a funny guy, class was rarely boring

USHIST Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Take him for U.S. History! He lectures, & writes all the notes you need to know on the board. All you need to do is copy them into your notebook. He will give you a study guide with 3 essays & 15 Vocab words. Each test there will be 2 of those essays on there that u only need to do 1 & about 7 of those vocab words you need to define. GO TO CLASS!

Do NOT be late to his class. This man is a genius, really knows his stuff. He tells you EVERYTHING you need to know for his exams. Know your ID's he gives you weeks ahead of time and write down his notes. He makes it easy to pass his class but won't put up with tardiness. Highly reccommend if you are not a slouch just trying to squeak by.

Excellent History teacher. It's true that he really dislike tardiness..so just be on time. It's worth it. His lectures are exactly what's on the test. He knows his stuff, makes it interesting, and best of all, he couldn't be more clear as to what the test is. No guessing if you're spending your study time correctly.

westc01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class itself is pretty easy and so are the tests. He passes out a study guide containing 4 essay question and 20 ID's. Then after3-4 days of taking notes the test is to write 1 of the 4 essays and 7 of the ID's. BUT it's not as great as it sounds. If you can deal with the worlds most ignorant people there is then its a OK class. LOTS OF NOTES

It took some getting used to but as long as you take good notes every class and do the ID's, you'll do fine. The tests are basically an essay and five or so definitions. His teaching is very straightforward. you always know what to expect. would definitely take his class again.

US History I- I don't know how this guy is still teaching he is every students worst nightmare! Sarcastic, inconsiderate, arrogant, obviously hates teaching but loves the power trip. Considered tardy if you walk in the room 1 minute late then makes you see him at the end of class! I suggest he take a refresher on how to communicate with respect.

Great Professor! He knows his stuff, and then some. great lectures, approachable and knows a lot more than just what's in the text. A lot of writing but i learned so much. If you love history MacWade is a must.

This is the perfect teacher for you if you hate doing homework. During tests, you will only have to do one essay, but he is incredibly detail orientated, so the essays will have to be long. Attendance is huge and taking notes is all you need to pass. The book can help, but is unnecessary.

Some lectures were really interesting some were dry. He has a lot of energy when he's talking about people's "heads getting cut off for them" (his words not mine). One warning: take the writing fast thing other people talked about seriously. Everyone grades seemed to be measured by how fast they wrote or typed, not by what they knew.

He's an amazing teacher if you like history. If you don't like writing long detailed essays in a short amount of time don't take this class. If you sit in the front he will hang over you like some kind of dinosuar. If you walk in late he will make an exaggerated motion to make it look like he's looking at his watch, but he doesn't have a watch.
