Hist 1700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher! She only had us read the book once. She teaches her lectures like reading a book. You definitely need to go to class to pass, not because she takes attendance but to get the material for the test

BEST TEACHER EVER. I have never been a history fan but by the end of this class I wanted to read every book about history I could find. She makes every lecture very interesting and if you show up and take good notes you'll be fine!

Dr. Dant is awesome, she's so passionate about what she's teaching and it makes it so much easier for her students to grasp concepts and remember. the only thing i didn't like was that if you miss any days you can kiss your grades goodbye for your tests. other than that i loved it!

She is very energetic and makes history a little less boring than I already had thought of it. You have a weekly quiz that is either a map quiz or a reading quiz, each are pretty easy if you do the reading. You have 5 exams that definitely will take a little bit of studying to get a good grade. Attendance is mandatory.

HIST 1700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was great and made history fun. You have to go to class she will not post notes from lectures. I only skimmed the textbook. 85% of her tests come from lectures. She gives a quiz every week but the quizzes are super easy. If you show up and study easy class to take.

Did not like the class AT ALL. I read the textbook, came to class every day, took loads of notes, studied for hours and still bombed every exam. If history is not your thing, this class is definitely not for you.

By far my favorite teacher this semester, if i get a chance i will for sure take another class from her. She put emotion in her lectures, made them interesting and as long as you were in class taking good notes you could not even open the book for the test and still pull off a B if not higher. She was also pretty funny. GREAT TEACHER!!

THIS CLASS WAS AWFUL. Teacher would not work with me, covered so much info, and she had no study guides. This was supposed to be a GENERAL class, but she taught like history was my major or something. I would not recommend taking this teacher.

Talented teacher, chooses relevant reading material, very respectful of differing beliefs. I loved every minute of her lectures and regret not being able to take more of her classes.

She is one of my favorite professors! She is really nice and helpful. She is very entertaining. She is always willing to answer student questions.If you take detailed notes then you don't have to read the book. She gives 5 major exams and a quiz every week. Exams and quizzes are very easy. I would really recommend this class.

Excellent lectures! Keeps you interested throughout the whole class. Sometimes she even reacted some scenes from history. Tests are a little rough and in depth. 10 quizzes and 5 exams. No homework or final exam. Passed the quizzes, had a rough time with with the exams. Read the chapters in your book, attend the class, take notes, and study.

If you aren't a big fan of history you should definetly take history from her! She makes history fun and you will leave her class actually remembering what you learned! You either have a quiz or an exam and thats the only homework she gives. She rocks!
