If you do the study guides, make sure you keep them all because they will really help you on the final. Sessions is a great professor, really helpful! Wear Weber State attire on Friday's for extra credit.

"Big time extra credit" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

Great professor! I was failing (D), but the extra credit helped and also he helped me study for the final which I passed! Recommend him. But there are a lot of articles to read and attend the SI Session to help you! Take a dictionary to test and you'll do good! He helped me pass and gave extra points on the quiz! Great History class learned a lot!

"Amazing lectures" "Tests are tough" "Lectures are long"

Very good at lecturing. You must do the work to get a good grade. Quizzes are tough, only 12 questions on a lot of material. Final was easier than expected.

"Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

Sessions is such a great professor! He really cares about everyone's grades! Make sure you go to class AND do the readings. If you don't do the readings, you won't get an A. If you are struggling he is always willing to meet with you and talk you through it.

"Get ready to read" "Respected by students" "Gives good feedback"

He is a great professor, really funny with a lot of great stories. The class is pretty easy. There is a 12 question quiz about every 2 weeks with readings that go along with them. Then the 100 question final. He set up SI sessions with a tutor to help out before every quiz.

"Big time extra credit" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters"

He gives you extra credit for weber wear about every other Friday, it helped out my grade a lot! I suggest going to the SI Sessions, they helped so much with studying for the test. He's pretty straight forward with what will be on the test. If he ever has a word written down, make sure to write it in your notes, and know what it means. Loved class!

Professor Sessions is honestly the best. He lectures and you have to read some articles before the quizzes. He makes the lectures fun and he understands that most people are taking the class because it's a requirement. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Best teacher.

As long as you do the readings and pay attention in class little other work is needed to do well in the class.

Dr. Sessions was the perfect History teacher for me! I love the subject, and he had all kinds of comments and trivia he shared with me. I adored this class, and I'll be taking more classes from him. In fact, I added History as a second major because of Dr. Sessions!

Sessions is an amazing professor! Probably the best online class I've taken before. However, it is also very tough in my opinion. There are 9 units and then a final. Each unit there is a 12 question quiz. TO study your read about 30-40 pgs of articles and 3 hours of lectures. Way too much material for 12 questions. Very tough but good teacher

Sessions is an excellent professor! I really enjoyed his lectures, he makes them interesting and his facts are completely accurate. He relates to the students well and is willing to help out any way possible. Attendance isn't a requirement, but you'll want to go because of him. Highly recommend him!

Take this class from him, it's the only history class you will ever enjoy. He's really an amazing professor. So much fun in class, just don't miss the lectures and take notes. Be sure to do the reading. Half of his tests are from the reading, but the articles are cool. The book is cheap and there's a lot of online articles. He's amazing.

I never liked history until I took his class. Sessions is an great professor and has a great sense of humor. His classes are entertaining an informative. He also does a great job of remaining unbiased when talking about politics.

A lot of work, but it was totally worth it. I wouldn't recommend it for people who don't have time to do all the reading. Around 40 pages each week plus a lot of writing. I learned a ton from this class!2834496

Not the easiest class I've taken. But he makes up for it on how helpful and clear he is. Print out the study guides at the beginning of each unit. He makes sure he covers all of the lecture portion. HE STARTS EVERY CLASS WITH FARSIDE COMICS!! What could be better?? Wear weber gear on Fridays. You'll get extra credit.
